WWE has confirmed what took place on Raw, the night after Survivor Series, Goldberg is to enter the 2017 Royal Rumble …
Goldberg is back, and he’s headed for the 30th annual Royal Rumble Match.
After a jaw-dropping showing against Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series, where he defeated The Beast Incarnate in under two minutes, Goldberg accepted Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon’s offer to compete in the 2017 Royal Rumble Match.
Thirty Superstars from Raw and SmackDown LIVE will compete in the annual over-the-top-rope melee, the winner of which moves on to battle for championship glory in the main event of WrestleMania.
A tradition dating back to 1988, the Royal Rumble Match starts with two participants, with new Superstars entering the ring every 90 seconds. This continues until all 30 Superstars have entered the bout. Eliminations occur when a Superstar is thrown over the top rope and both of his feet hit the floor. The last Superstar standing will be declared the victor.
Will Goldberg be able to keep this new win streak alive and outlast 29 other Superstars to advance to The Showcase of the Immortals? And what other Superstars from Raw and SmackDown LIVE will join the fray and fight for the chance at sports-entertainment immortality?
The big man has to be considered one of the favourites heading into the match and it is my belief that if he doesn’t win the thing outright then he will have a feud for a WrestleMania match.
