Bengaluru, Aug 25: At the beginning of the WWE Summerslam weekend, most of the fans thought that they would witness a triumphant return from the former World Heavyweight Champion, Goldberg, to stand against the ruthless beast known as Brock Lesnar.
During the end of the Summerslam show, the whole arena was chanting his name. The primary thinking was that Goldberg would come out to save Randy Orton who got nearly unconscious at the hands of Lesnar.
However, that did not happen and the crowd was disappointed. The whole arena started booing over the fact. When they saw Shane McMahon is running down the ramp instead of Goldberg, the WWE universe started to let their frustration know via the social media.
Now, WWE did have the audacity not to accept the backlash in public. But, Goldberg himself apologized to the fans on his Twitter handle. He posted a number of tweets on his official account for not showing up at the biggest event of the summer. Here’s what he has to offer.
Sorry guys and girls....Thank you all for the love...truly an honor 👊🙏— Bill Goldberg (@Goldberg) August 22, 2016
...let the new boys do their thing— Bill Goldberg (@Goldberg) August 22, 2016
During the Summerslam weekend he was promoting the upcoming WWE 2K17 which will be available in October. He accepted the challenge by Brock Lesnar in the social media which gave birth to the rumors that these two are all set to clash in certain capacity at Summerslam. But, WWE has not made the feud into fruition due to bad creative planning.
Otherwise, what could have been marked a dream return to the company has been turned into a dull ending to the SummerSlam event. However, the returning possibility of Goldberg is not still dead, yet. Maybe WWE is storing it for future or next year’s Wrestlemania.
As of now, Goldberg has quoted on "Sportskeeda", the following regarding his return while promoting the WWE 2K17 video game, "On October 11th, you'll get to see me and Brock Lesnar go at it one more time and I'm sure he'll be trying to get that loss back from WrestleMania XX. the reality is when this game comes out, you'll get to see me in the ring against new guys or guys like The Undertaker who you never saw me get in the ring with. As a father, a 49-year-old, an old timer, it's an honour to be in the game. It also makes me a great dad since it's pretty cool for a ten-year-old."
