Bill Goldberg defeated Dolph Ziggler in singles action this past Sunday at WWE SummerSlam.

The victory in Toronto allowed WWE to re-establish Goldberg as the legend that he is after his nightmarish performance against The Undertaker at Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia.

Goldberg had an eventful SummerSlam week – showing up on Monday Night RAW, filming for NCIS LA, then encountering Matt Riddle backstage and finally wrestling Ziggler – together it turned out to be more than what the 52-year-old can chew at this stage of his life.

On Booker T’s Hall Of Fame podcast, The Myth revealed how he’s doing post-SummerSlam.

“Mentally, I’m doing great, man. Physically, I’m doing pretty damn good, but I’m exhausted, man. I had a week from hell, I ain’t gonna complain cause I had a lot of cool things that I got to do, but travel-wise, I covered some ground, man and I can’t run like I used to, but, damn.”

It’s safe to assume that Goldberg isn’t done yet; per rumours, he could potentially wrestle at major PPVs down the line.

Given the challenging situation Vince McMahon is going through at the moment, Goldberg could be used as a major attraction (like The Phenom) to boost ticket sales and ratings.

Goldberg has worked two matches so far in 2019 and a third one is only a matter of time with October’s Saudi Arabian event almost around the corner. Although there’s no word on this, WWE might as well book The Myth for a special appearance on SmackDown’s debut show on FOX (October 4).

Per rumors, Goldberg and Riddle could go 1-on-1 in a dream match at WrestleMania 36. The seeds for the showdown have already been planted and it’s only a matter of time before The King of Bros makes the main roster jump and WWE makes the booking official.
