Every single person in the ThunderDome knew why he was there, and they were right. The WWE legend challenged Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship in one of the most shocking storyline starters of them all. 

McIntyre laughed and joked that fighting Goldberg would be like fighting his father; at this point, the latter pushed McIntyre down! He showed him just how game he was for a fight. 

‘The Scottish Psychopath’ hasn’t given an answer yet but will most likely agree to the match which is set to take place at Royal Rumble next month. 

Although Goldberg’s return was very high profile, a lot of fans were put off by WWE’s creative decision to set Goldberg up with Drew McIntyre for the title. 

Fans do not seem hyped about Goldberg vs Drew McIntyre

Many expected the WCW star to continue his feud with Roman Reigns, but he decided to challenge McIntyre instead. Considering that McIntyre has been a workhorse champion, fans don’t want to see Goldberg win the title at any cost. 

Goldberg is known for the quick finishes in his matches and many fans were shocked when he took out Brock Lesnar in mere seconds. However, he was universally panned for ‘burying’ “The Fiend” at Super Showdown last year. 

As you can see, fans don’t agree with Goldberg being pushed into a feud with McIntyre who is arguably in his prime. Setting him up against Goldberg would be a waste of his talents.

Goldberg has failed to deliver on expectations for a while now. His match against The Undertaker at Crown Jewel was disastrous and the match against “The Fiend” wasn’t a spectacle either.

This may be his last chance to redeem himself and prove to the fans that he still has it in him, and that age is just a number.
