Steve Austin vs Goldberg: Will it finally happen?

Last updated

With the reports indicating that Stone Cole Steve Austin will be making his return to WWE after 19 years out of the ring, speculation has begun regarding an Austin vs Goldberg match.

Goldberg and Austin were two of the biggest stars in WCW and WWE respectively back in the late 90s, and they both now appear to be available to wrestle at the same time.

Whilst the match is nowhere near confirmed or even on the company’s mind, Andrew Zarian brought up the idea on the We’re Live Pal podcast this week.

“Now is the time. For Austin vs. Goldberg, let us suffer through this, okay? I’m okay with this. I’m fine. I don’t even want the match to be good” Zarian began.

“I don’t want it to be anything, I have 0 expectations. If Dave [Meltzer] gives it a DUD, I’m still happy because it finally happened.

“So I don’t think it would be a negative, I think just the sheer excitement, you know, from people would be enough. Now the big story is how can Austin bump? Does he want to? Who’s going to protect him?” Zarian concluded.

From a nostalgia standpoint, this could be one of the biggest dream matches that WWE will ever put on. It’s just a shame that it didn’t happen 20 years ago.
