I’d say he counts as special. There are a lot of wrestlers on the WWE roster and some of them are going to be treated like something more important. That could be the case for a lot of reasons, though some of them seem to be because they have earned a different status over the years. It seems to be the case with a certain legend who is back again for another run with the company.
According to Wrestling Observer Radio, Goldberg is one of a few WWE stars with a special deal to appear on shows in Saudi Arabia. Goldberg receives a large bonus for appearing on the shows, which is why his matches will never be moved elsewhere ala Bobby Lashley vs. Randy Orton on Monday Night Raw last month. Goldberg does not currently have a match set for Crown Jewel on October 21, but he is expected to face Bobby Lashley in a Summerslam rematch.
He has been in some big ones over there. Check out Goldberg in Saudi Arabia and against Lashley:
Opinion: I know Goldberg might not be the most popular star to have around at times, but it is easy to understand why anyone, especially someone without much time left in his career, would want to make millions for a short match. WWE seems to think there is something to bringing him back over and over so we might be seeing him for a bit. Maybe his next match can be an upgrade, which would certainly be nice to see.
What do you expect from Goldberg’s next match? Who else should he face? Let us know in the comments below.
