Goldberg's recent Twitter activity hints at signing for Cody Rhodes' All Elite Wrestling

Bill Goldberg's return to WWE in late 2016 caused a major stir.

Many just thought he was being brought in to promote the WWE 2K17 video game, but it became clearer and clearer each week that a program with former foe Brock Lesnar was on the agenda.

And after squashing the Beast Incarnate at Survivor Series and eliminating him from the Royal Rumble match, a final showdown was on the agenda - but first Goldberg won the Universal Championship for the first time at Fast Lane.

At WrestleMania 33 though, Lesnar was victorious in a hard-hitting match, despite being put through the ringside barricade with a vicious Spear.

On the Raw after Mania, Goldberg didn't appear on the live episode of Raw, but he turned up post-broadcast and left himself open to a return in the future - theoretically he could probably be given a bout for the Raw world title as he never got his automatic rematch.

That was the last we saw of Goldberg aside from his WWE Hall of Fame induction in 2018, and that's usually an indication that you're not coming back to wrestle again.

He could be good for one last nostalgia run but you get the feeling his 2016/17 return was just that and he's done with WWE.

But that doesn't rule out other promotions, and Goldberg's most recent Twitter activity could be a spoiler that he's about to return to the ring.

Goldberg was last seen being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2018, but recent Twitter activity suggests he may return to wrestling

As ProWrestlingSheet journalist Ryan Satin spotted with his eagle eye, not only did Goldberg follow the accounts for Cody Rhodes' new promotion All Elite Wrestling, but also the page for their first event - Double Or Nothing - and they followed him back.

Now there's a chance that Goldberg just wants to keep a keen eye on proceedings in the wrestling world, but the cynic in everyone really does think that Tony Khan's money is going to tempt Goldberg for a run with AEW.

It could just potentially be a backstage role or advice Rhodes and The Young Bucks are looking for, but with the rumoured additions of Jim Ross and Chris Jericho to their business, they seemingly have enough expertise on that front already.

There's a pretty mixed reaction towards the potential outcome of the former WCW Champion joining forces with Rhodes and The Bucks.

But imagine if All Elite do manage to entice Goldberg for a small run, that would be a huge deal for them and would make them a serious proposition for any disgruntled WWE stars willing to make the jump across.
