Bill Goldberg is a confirmed entrant in the 2017 WWE Royal Rumble match, meaning his run with the company will extend over into the new year.
There are several other components to consider, including the possibility of him being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame over Wrestlemania 33 weekend. Vince McMahon very much wants to do another Goldberg vs. Brock Lesnar match, so the feeling is that will be the match at Wrestlemania 33. However, we’re able to confirm that the only scheduled pay-per-view match for Goldberg in WWE right now is the Rumble Rumble appearance next year. He's scheduled to join 29 other participants for the chance at a title shot at Wrestlemania 33.
Vince is obviously confident he can get Goldberg to work Wrestlemania 33 at a price similar to what he paid him to work Survivor Series on Sunday. Vince knew he took a gamble at Survivor Series and the Raw viewership will be the first indication as to whether or not it worked. We're gathering even more details on the thinking that went it behind it and hope to have those online for you shortly.
Royal Rumble 2017 will take place on Sunday, January 29, 2017 from the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. W’ell have complete coverage here at WrestlingNewsWorld.com.
