Last night's episode of RAW gave us one of the more memorable segments of 2016 when Paul Heyman came to the ring on behalf of Brock Lesnar to address Bill Goldberg.

Goldberg has been tipped for a return match in WWE with Lesnar being the most likely name for some time now, but only in the last week has the idea really started to gain momentum.

A delayed return?

With Heyman addressing Goldberg last night, the fans have found themselves excited at the prospects for next month's Survivor Series.

Goldberg has been confirmed for next week's episode of RAW in which he will address Lesnar, which has really lent some weight to the rumours for Survivor Series.

However an alternating report from Mike Johnson of PWInsider has claimed that fans may have to wait a while for their new dream match.

According to Johnson - speaking on the Taz show, the match between Goldberg and Lesnar could actually be set to take place at next year's Royal Rumble in January.

"This will give Goldberg enough time to get back into great ring shape, and it's an attraction that will help sell out the 65,000 seat Alamodome in San Antonio."

With the Royal Rumble set to take place in a much bigger venue than normal, the WWE will have to do everything they can to make it a big event.

This could mean delaying Goldberg vs Lesnar until then but the obvious issue would be if they could keep the momentum up until then.
