WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg has ran through the likes of Brock Lesnar and Dolph Ziggler since returning to the ring, and he has two more main event stars on his wish list next.
In his last match, Goldberg defeated Dolph Ziggler with relative ease at the SummerSlam pay-per-view two months ago. The WWE Hall of Famer revealed which superstars he wants to face next in an interview with Denise Salcedo of Instinct Culture (h/t WrestlingInc.com).
"I mean, Roman (Reigns) and Braun (Strowman) are two guys that I would like to test their mettle a little bit," Goldberg said."Georgia (Goldberg) against Georgia Tech (Reigns) - it's kind of a built in rivalry."
Of course, Goldberg is referring to his alma mtter, Georgia. He played for the Bulldogs football team before embarking on a brief NFL career - where he suited up for the Los Angeles Rams and later the Atlanta Falcons.
As for Reigns, he played football for the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. He was signed by the Minnesota Vikings and Jacksonville Jaguars but never played in the NFL. Instead, Reigns briefly played for the Edmonton Eskimos if the CFL.
So a match between Reigns and Goldberg would make plenty of sense when you consider the Bulldogs and Yellow Jackets rivalry, as the latter pointed out.
A match involving Goldberg and Strowman would also be must-see television. Both men have reputations for easily squashing their competitors, and something would have to give here between the two dominant forces.
Many believed that Goldberg was retired following his loss to Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 33. Instead, he returned to face The Undertaker in a losing effort at Super ShowDown, though Goldberg redeemed himself with the squashing of Ziggler at SummerSlam.
Will Goldberg wrestle again?
Some wonder if a rematch between Goldberg and Ziggler is on the horizon, given their confrontation in Las Vegas last month. But there aren't any indications of that, and nobody knows for sure if Goldberg is going to wrestle again.
He reportedly made $1 million for the match against Undertaker at Super ShowDown, so we know Vince McMahon is happy to pay up big dollars to get Goldberg back in the ring. And since he remains in strong shape, it's reasonable to think that Goldberg can do this for several years. It's probably a matter of when, not if, Goldberg wrestles again.
