A handful of WWE Superstars have taken to Twitter to poke fun at Goldberg's WWE return and the exorbitant amount of money he is probably being paid.
WWE has officially announced when it will next be returning to Saudi Arabia. Well, sort of. We know that the next Saudi Arabian show will take place on June 7, but WWE has hardly been shouting from the rooftops about it. Unsurprising considering the amount of controversy that still surrounds the decade-long deal between the two parties.
Some of the big name stars making the trip have also been revealed. Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker will be making the trip for the third time, and they will be joined by Goldberg. The Hall Of Famer hadn't been tempted back by WWE's Saudi money before, so his paycheque for the show must be pretty substantial. It will be the first time he has competed since WrestleMania 33.
A handful of WWE Superstars have not been shy about letting their feelings known regarding Goldberg's return. It started with Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt clashing on Twitter. Rusev tried to cheer them up by jokingly reminding them that Goldberg is coming back. Since Rusev didn't tag Goldberg in the tweet, Big E then got involved, labeling the Bulgarian a coward for not doing so.
@ him, you coward!— Florida Man (@WWEBigE) May 2, 2019
That prompted Orton to pop back up and tweet "there goes another 2 million." The Viper made sure Goldberg was tagged in that one. The 12 time World Champion is well-known for being at a point in his career where he says what he likes and doesn't care who he upsets in the process. This might be our favorite example of that to date. At the time of typing this, Goldberg has not responded. However, Wyatt has replied with "I love Bill!!!" and a photo of him and Orton getting speared by the WCW icon.
The upcoming Saudi show will once again air live on the WWE Network. However, if it is anything like the previous two, you won't be missing much if you decide to skip it. Across two shows and around 10 hours of action, the only moment worth watching again is when Titus O'Neil tripped and fell under the ring. Clearly, the Saudi prince wants to watch WWE Superstars from the past, and he will continue to pay through the nose in order to do so.
