Bill Goldberg is a proud WWE Hall Of Famer and a through pro wrestling legend.
Ever since his return against Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series 2016, Goldberg has been used as a major box office attraction by WWE. While the 52-year-old megastar is way past his prime, he is still in great shape and has absolutely no problem in working a schedule similar to that of The Undertaker.
Brad Shepard had previously reported that despite his horrendous performance against The Undertaker this past June, Saudi Arabia officials are eager to have Goldberg wrestle in The Kingdom again.
A carried report via wwfoldschool.com reveals the bank that Goldberg is making thanks to the humongous deal between WWE and Saudi Arabia.
“According to The Dirty Sheets, WWE was said to be “all in” on Goldberg’s return (before The Undertaker match) and Goldberg agreed to work three consecutive WWE PPVs in Saudi Arabia for a total amount of $6 million.”
Goldberg went 1-on-1 with The Undertaker for the first time ever at WWE Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia. The dream booking didn’t go according to plan – The Myth ended up concussing himself early on and The Phenom was forced to carry the match on his shoulders.
The match itself was horrific; both legends could barely perform a simple grapple and the abysmal performance had literally enraged the WWE Universe who showed no mercy in criticizing the management for the disastrous booking. Moreover, Goldberg was so rash that not only could he have injured ‘Taker, but he could have paralyzed himself as well.
WWE was hell-bent on fixing the mess, and at SummerSlam, Goldberg defeated Dolph Ziggler in singles action to successfully re-establish himself as the legend he is. After all, WWE didn’t want to leave a bad taste in fans’ mouths after what had happened in KSA and had to re-paint Big Bill at all costs.
