TMZ first reported in late August that Goldberg was in talks for a return to the company. Earlier this week it was revealed that Goldberg would be appearing on tonight's ESPN Off The Record segment on SportsCenter, with Michael Cole stating that Goldberg would be discussing his relationship with the company.
WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross noted on Twitter that Goldberg returning to the company is "a done deal", and he will likely face Brock Lesnar at the Survivor Series on November 20th in Toronto. Dave Meltzer noted today at F4WOnline that a Lesnar vs. Goldberg match is "all but confirmed for WWE Survivor Series."
Goldberg has not wrestled since defeating Lesnar at WrestleMania XX in 2004. He hasn't appeared on-camera for WWE since that match, but it was announced this past May that Goldberg would be a playable character in WWE 2K17, which comes out this month. Goldberg was featured in the first official trailer for the game, as seen below:
When I spoke to Goldberg last year, he noted that he was open to wrestling again, but admitted that it would take "a hell of a lot of money" to get him to return.
"A hell of a lot of money," Goldberg replied, when I asked him what it would take to wrestle again. "One hell of a sit-down meeting with me about the complete details of how they plan on doing it. With the option on the table of me doing it myself, that's pretty nice."
