WWE News: Goldberg set to announce his return at Super ShowDown on SmackDown this week

Bill Goldberg will appear on SmackDown this week

WWE are returning to Saudi Arabia in 2020 earlier than fans may have thought, and for the first time since they penned the money-spinning deal, it's happening on the Road to WrestleMania.

The first Saudi events of the last two years have taken place in April and June respectively, but just four months after the events and aftermath of Crown Jewel, WWE will return to Riyadh on February 27.

It's less than ideal timing for the schedule, with the event happening just nine days before Elimination Chamber is due to go down on March 8.

But with a roster the size that it is, WWE has plenty of options to play with for both events, and considering some stars tend to boycott the Saudi shows anyway, two big shows in 10 days may be a good thing for some.

As always though, the Saudi fans will be getting some legendary figures appearing, with Hulk Hogan all-but-set to make a guest appearance in Riyadh for the event.

He's not the only star of the 1990s who will be there though, as the return of one of WCW's biggest homegrown icons has been confirmed.

As advertised by WWE last night, the indomitable Goldberg will appear on our screens for the first time since SummerSlam way back in August, as he makes his way to SmackDown in San Jose this week.

He wouldn't come back for no reason - Goldberg will be there to set up a fight - but who with is an entirely different matter.

After he posted on Instagram to hype up his SmackDown showing, the hashtag '#someonehadtodoit' has made fans think that he's going to try and take down The Fiend, seeing as though no-one has been able to do it yet.

Or maybe WWE will have Roman Reigns go one-on-one with Goldberg in a battle of the Spears - remember this 2017 face-off on Raw?

Or maybe Goldberg's return will give someone else a platform to do big things - maybe a Cesaro, Shinsuke Nakamura, or even Sheamus who has just recently returned from injury.

Whoever it may be, it'll be interesting to see how Goldberg goes in the ring once again, as his victory over Dolph Ziggler at SummerSlam was merely a squash match.

It would be good to see him go at least 10 minutes against a younger competitor, who would gain tons from facing a Hall of Famer in the process!
