Despite Goldberg's ambiguous answer on ESPN's Sportscenter interview regarding his in-ring future, Dave Meltzer insists the match between Goldberg and Lesnar is still on for Survivor Series. Jim Ross also reported on his show that his reliable source informed him of plans for the match.
The story is that Vince McMahon has the match scheduled, but has not been very enthusiastic about doing it. It's said that there are still some negative feelings backstage regarding Goldberg. The potential match is reportedly a on-off and not leading to any future plans between the two.
WWE wants to do the match at Survivor Series to help promote the WWE 2K17 game. Another reason is that WWE has future opponents locked in for Lesnar, so they don't want to change those plans for Goldberg.
One of those planned opponents is Shane McMahon, likely for WrestleMania 33. They've already hinted at a future match between the two, as Lesnar attacked Shane after defeating Randy Orton at SummerSlam.
