Goldberg: WWE might re-sign him for “Saudi strategy”

Last updated

WWE Superstar Goldberg will be facing Roman Reigns at the upcoming Elimination Chamber event from Saudi Arabia, and it might be his final WWE match.

Goldberg has noted in the past how he has one match left on his WWE contract, this is supposedly being that match.

According to Dave Meltzer, WWE may opt to re-sign the WCW legend as part of their “Saudi strategy” going forward, as the 90s star has mainly been used on cards in the country.

‘I’ve not heard him re-signing. I would expect that they would re-sign him. They’re not going to put the title on him unless he re-signs, I’m sure of that’¦” Meltzer began on Wrestling Observer Radio.

“I could see the argument because of being so high not to re-sign him, but I just sense that they probably will.

“One, to keep him away from the opposition, and the other, because they can afford to do it’¦ Again, like the Saudis. There are not too many guys from that era left. In fact, there’s just about nobody” Meltzer added.

“But, the people there [in Saudi Arabia], they want those 90s guys because that’s who they grew up on and that’s who the real wrestlers are to them.

“You can’t really’¦ I guess they could bring Hogan back. They brought him there one year. But, they want that nostalgia stuff. The old stuff. And Bill looks enough like Bill Goldberg to pull it off and, so, just for that, he’s that attraction if they want” Meltzer concluded.
