As previously noted, Bill Goldberg is reportedly returning to WWE and will be facing Bobby Lashley at the 2021 Summerslam PPV.
During a special edition of The Bump, Matt Riddle seemingly addressed the rumor without mentioning Goldberg by name…
“I heard there’s somebody special coming back on Monday Night RAW this week. I’m not going to mention names and start problems. I heard a rumor. I don’t know if it’s true but if it’s true I’m pretty excited.”
Goldberg and Riddle have a documented history behind the scenes. Back in December, Riddle did an interview with BT Sport and expressed interest in having a match against Goldberg despite their personal issues…
“I would love to have a sweet match with him. I think I’m good enough where I would do it. I think [I could] redeem him completely. I don’t have to win – I’m not that guy. I’m all about the quality of the work. If we could make quality work and if you would be willing to listen to what I have to say – and I’ll listen to what you have to say – I think it could be magical and I think the fans would eat it up. The guy really doesn’t like me and I really don’t like his work to be fair. From Universal Solider 3 and beyond, not a fan. But I get it, the guy has a presence just like I have a presence.”
