Bill Goldberg has agreed to work the 2017 WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view from the Alamodome in San Antonio, according to a new report from James McKenna at Pro Wrestling Sheet. This could be why WWE booked Goldberg to look so strong as he squashed Brock Lesnar at tonight's Survivor Series pay-per-view in Toronto.

Goldberg reportedly made the deal this week and will be participating in the 30-man Rumble main event for just the second time in his career. No word yet on a potential WrestleMania 33 match but anything is possible.
