As we head towards 2017, it’s time to start gearing up for the Royal Rumble pay-per-view, with Bill Goldberg and Brock Lesnar set to feature in the main event.
Reports suggest that neither man will win the 30-man battle royal, but it’s clear that the dominating presence they bring makes them both favorites, regardless of the outcome.
It’s an obvious fact that a major draw like Goldberg won’t be on weekly programming heading into the Royal Rumble, or even towards WrestleMania, but NoDQ.com have revealed when fans can expect to see him on Monday Night Raw.
They’re reporting that from now up until the Grandest Stage of Them All, Goldberg has signed on for 13 appearances, and three of those are said to be matches he’ll be involved in.
One of those is the Royal Rumble, and the second is at WrestleMania; which is another rumored rematch with Lesnar, leaving the question as to when that third bout could occur, and who his opponent could be.
As of this writing, Goldberg has been announced to appear on the January 2 edition of Raw from Tampa, as well as the January 23 episode which takes place in Cleveland at The Q Arena.
