There has been plenty of buzz surrounding Bill Goldberg and a potential return to the WWE as of late.
Most of the speculation has come from the horse's mouth. The former WCW icon - who had a year run with the WWE from 2003 to 2004 - has suggested that he is open to a return and would like for his son to be able to see him wrestle at least once.
After Goldberg struck a deal with 2K Games to feature in the new WWE 2K17 game as a character available if you pre-order the game, it has been expected that he would follow in the footsteps of Sting and the Ultimate Warrior who both featured in the company after doing so in the game.

Adding further fuel to the fire, Goldberg will be in Indianapolis this Sunday, which is the location of this Sunday's WWE Clash of the Champions pay-per-view, for a podcast appearance.
Goldberg said that him being in Indianapolis the same day as the pay-per-view is "purely coincidence" but that hasn't stopped fans speculating that he may make an appearance with the company some 12 years after departing.
Goldberg recently told Submission Radio that there is no agreement in place with the WWE, nor has anyone reached out to him for an appearance this Sunday.
He did, however, leave the door open.
"Oh man, they don't do that. They've got their own agenda, man. I'm a 49-year-old has-been over here that just so happens to be in their new videogame, and it's an honor for me to do it. It's an honor for me to take place in it and hey, I have no issues with them anymore.
"Like I said, to be able to do anything with them at this point it is a true testament to my ability to deliver for my son. So that's it."
What do you think, is Goldberg throwing everyone off of the scent, or are his days in a WWE ring firmly behind him?
