A report attributed to Dave Meltzer’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter claims Goldberg’s new contract with WWE includes the following three pay-per-views in 2017:
- WWE Royal Rumble on Jan. 29, 2017
- WWE Fastlane on March 5, 2017
- Wrestlemania 33 on April 2, 2017
Expect Goldberg to make appearances on episodes of WWE Raw throughout this time period to continue to promote his inclusion on pay-per-view.
Vince McMahon showed why he is the best promoter of all-time in dealing with Goldberg. When he agreed to return to WWE late last fall, he was intent on working Survivor Series and that was it. However, Vince got him to agree to stay on, so Vince used Survivor Series as a way to book him without really having to use him.
The plan going back into the summer was for Goldberg to face Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 33. That appears to be all but confirmed as of the first week of the new year.
