As confirmed on Monday Night Raw, Goldberg has officially entered himself into the 2017 Royal Rumble match.

The 49-year-old made his return to the squared circle last weekend, defeating Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series in just 86 seconds, making it 2-0 between the two monsters.

The initial plans were to have Lesnar go over Goldberg and then that to be that, but changes were made after the former WCW Champion agreed to stick around for a little while longer.

A late decision was made, and it was Goldberg who won the match, setting up a possible rematch for WrestleMania 33.

However, in between now and 'Mania is the Royal Rumble in January.

Goldberg has already declared himself as part of the 30-man over the top rope match, whilst it's heavily believed that Lesnar will also be included in the main event.

The Beast Incarnate is not booked for anymore TV appearances for WWE this year, so his return is likely to be at the event, which could see him go face-to-face with Goldberg once again.

However, according to the Wrestling Observer, this is something WWE want to avoid.

Officials backstage want to try and keep Goldberg and Lesnar apart as much as possible at the Rumble, so that they can subtly tease a rematch for 'Mania a couple of months down the line.

Wrestling Observer are claiming that although the two may encounter each other during the Rumble, WWE don't want them doing too much together so that fans have to wait until The Grandest Stage of Them All.

It is then expected that Lesnar will get his revenge and finally beat Goldberg.
