However, it seems like the Superstar has shifted to using prop guns when posing for a photograph or for any form of recording. He took to social media to show off himself with a gun but with a twist.

The caption reveals that he is using a gun that doesn’t fire real bullets.

Goldberg isn’t the only one to implement measures

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson announced that his production house, Seven Bucks Productions, will not use any real guns for any of the movies. This was quite the move by the production company, considering it has the power to influence several others.

The more that influential individuals work towards such measures, the better it will be for the ones working on Hollywood sets.

The last time he was in the WWE ring, it was at Crown Jewel 2021. He destroyed Bobby Lashley by spearing him off the ramp and then pinning him.

It was one of those moments that cannot be forgotten and could possibly become an iconic moment in WWE’s history.

As of now, it’s unknown when The Icon will come back to WWE. He may still have a couple of matches left in his WWE contract. So, he could potentially come back at one of the PPVs in the following year.

It’s unlikely that he will come back at Survivor Series 2021. But, then again, who knows?
