Goldberg has been around for the past few years, competing at the highest level even after entering his 50s. Still absolutely fit and muscular, he is capable of delivering a few more top-quality matches.

Vince McMahon intends to ride the Goldberg card up to its exhaustion. The WCW legend’s return to WWE on SmackDown proved that the Chairman wants him once more. Perhaps he can still hear those loud ‘Goldberg’ bellows coming from the crowd every time the Superstar is seen. According to a report from Inside The Ropes, Vince McMahon “couldn’t care less what anyone thinks about him using Goldberg.”

Goldberg has revealed that his contract allows him to compete twice a year in WWE. He already wiped that clause by competing at Super ShowDown by beating “The Fiend” for the Universal Championship and then later at WrestleMania where he lost the same to Braun Strowman.

Vince McMahon intends on placing Goldberg in a feud against either Roman Reigns or Braun Strowman. Since Reigns is already in a personal blood feud, Braun Strowman will most likely face the wrath of the foe he once defeated.

Goldberg was booked to face Roman Reigns at WrestleMania

Goldberg was initially supposed to face Roman Reigns at WrestleMania this year. He was set to defend his Universal Championship, but things fell apart due to the pandemic. Roman Reigns opted to stay out of the picture for the initial months of the lockdown, which is why Goldberg faced Strowman instead.

The main question is- Can Goldberg still compete at the highest level?

The fans’ faith in “The Iconic” was crushed after that disastrous match against The Undertaker at Super ShowDown 2019. For the first time, we saw the age in Goldberg’s movements. He could not cope with the weight of The Deadman and dropped him on his head following a botched Jackhammer.

Vince McMahon continues to place Goldberg as a priority and refuses to listen otherwise. The fans get drawn by the name but that name may soon lose its relevance. He may influence viewership still, but how long can he be pitted for the main events of WWE? We will soon find out if the WCW legend still has his glory days with him or not.
