- In the video above, Tony Nese says the WWE Cruiserweight Classic was a fluke and we won't see that from him on 205 Live. Nese says he is the premier athlete and he does make mistakes but he gets better and capitalizes.
Goldberg is back, and he's headed for the 30th annual Royal Rumble Match … and he is going to be joined by a Beast.
After his jaw-dropping showing against Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series, where he defeated The Anomaly in under two minutes, Goldberg accepted Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon's offer to compete in the 2017 Royal Rumble Match.
The anti was then upped exponentially the next week when Lesnar's advocate Paul Heyman declared that his client Lesnar would also be joining the fray of the Royal Rumble Match, thus putting Lesnar and Goldberg on another possible collision course!
Thirty Superstars from Raw and SmackDown LIVE will compete in the annual over-the-top-rope melee, the winner of which moves on to battle for championship glory in the main event of WrestleMania.
A tradition dating back to 1988, the Royal Rumble Match starts with two participants, with new Superstars entering the ring every 90 seconds. This continues until all 30 Superstars have entered the bout. Eliminations occur when a Superstar is thrown over the top rope and both of his feet hit the floor. The last Superstar standing will be declared the victor.
Will Goldberg be able to keep this new win streak alive and outlast 29 other Superstars to advance to The Showcase of the Immortals? Or, will he cross paths with Lesnar and set the WWE's version of the All-Star Game, completely ablaze? And what other Superstars from Raw and SmackDown LIVE will join the fray and fight for the chance at sports-entertainment immortality?
Find out when The Road to WrestleMania begins at WWE Royal Rumble 2017. The huge event airs live Sunday, Jan. 29, at 7 ET/4 PT from the historic Alamodome in San Antonio, live on the award-winning WWE Network.
