He last fought in the WWE against Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship at the 2021 Royal Rumble. However, he lost the fight. Besides McIntyre, Goldberg has shared the ring with the likes of The Undertaker, Brock Lesnar, and The Rock in his long and prestigious career.

Since 2018, he has stayed really active. Despite him being in his dotage, he is still a big draw. This was evident by the reaction he got at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.
