Goldberg to Appear On Raw Before Royal Rumble

Fans won’t have to wait too long after the new year to see Goldberg back in the ring.

It has been announced that Goldberg will be doing a couple episodes of Raw before the Royal Rumble set for January 29th. Over the weekend, WWE confirmed that the big man has been booked for the first Raw of 2017, set to take place at the AMALIE Arena in Tampa, Florida:

 

Once again, AMALIE Arena will host the greatest Superstars in sports entertainment. WWE Superstars scheduled to appear include GOLDBERG®, United States Champion Roman Reigns®, WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens®, Seth Rollins®, Chris Jericho®, RAW Commissioner Stephanie McMahon®, RAW General Manager Mick Foley®, RAW Tag Team Champions The New Day®, Charlotte®, Braun Strowman®, Rusev®, RAW Women’s Champion Sasha Banks®, Cesaro®, Sami Zayn®, Sheamus®, Enzo & Cass®, and more! Tickets start at just $20!”

On  Friday, the company confirmed  Goldberg will also appear on the last Raw before Rumble, January 23rd  at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. It would be smart that Brock Lesner is part of the go-home show, however, nothing has been announced.

In other Goldberg news, talk this week that creative might be looking at a John Cena program for Bill after Bill wraps up his feud with Brock Lesner.  Bill boiled the rumour kettle of a possible match last weekend on Twitter:

I never forget…..RT @J4dittmore: @Goldberg love to see you face John Cena since John Cena is the one who picked Brock to beat you

Jim Ross: John Cena Might No Longer Be Working A Full Time WWE Schedule

– WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross posted his latest blog at JRsBarBQ.com, check out the highlights below:

On Lita’s WWE departure:

“After I was told that Lita and The King were both still with WWE, Lita DM’ed me on Twitter to tell me that she was no longer with the company. I don’t know if she opted out of her arrangement with WWE or if they decided to go in another direction. In any event, change is in the air as it relates to the expensive production of the RAW and SDLIVE pre and post game shows.”

On John Cena not wrestling full time in WWE:

“It seems that John Cena is traveling much the same road that Dwayne Johnson has taken in his post WWE life which I applaud. Just like @TheRock, @JohnCena is and always will be a WWE guy who may never wrestle a full time schedule again, likely not IMO, but will always be loyal to the company that helped launch his amazing career.

“I know of no wrestler with reasonable sanity that is that would not trade the bumping and the road schedule, etc for the life of a TV or movie personality. Would you? I didn’t think so.”

Could The Undertaker Possibly Compete In The Royal Rumble Match?

 

Rumors are always in the air, but not like when it’s Royal Rumble season. Rumors are always flying over surprise entrants and this year should be no exception, another name that has been tossed around for competing in the famous Royal Rumble match is none other than ” The Deadman” himself. The Undertaker’s last Royal Rumble appearance was in 2010 and his last appearance in the Royal Rumble match was in 2009, so that being said seeing The Undertaker in the Royal Rumble match would be something that fans haven’t seen in a very long time and it would also generate a huge pop from the crowd in the process. Undertaker is exactly what the Royal Rumble might need in terms of star power and success, we’ll have to wait and see what happens.           Do you want to see The Undertaker compete in the Royal Rumble match?

During an interview with Title Match Wrestling back in September, Angle discussed a possible WWE return:

Ric Flair Says He Would Love To See Charlotte Against Ronda Rousey At WrestleMania

– WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair recently shared his thoughts on the Ric Flair Show, check out the the following highlight:

Flair would book Charlotte vs. Ronda Rousey and Triple H vs. Shane McMahon for WrestleMania 33 from Orlando, Florida.

“I would love to see Charlotte, my daughter, against Ronda Rousey, which I think would be huge. I know she’ll be in a main event somewhere and I think they could make that work. But, as [co-host Conrad Thompson] and I both know, Ronda has to win this month or her credibility would be hard to sell, so I just know Charlotte will be in a main event somewhere.”

Flair continued, “I think the biggest match people want to see, but I’m not sure it’ll happen, will be Shane McMahon against Hunter. I said that last week. I mean, that would knock you off your chair and that’s not a job for a chair.”

WWE NXT Live Event Results From St. Petersburg (12/08): Lana Wrestles, Cruiserweight Champion Rich Swann

– Check out the following WWE NXT live event results from Thursday’s show in St. Petersburg, Florida:

* Jack Gallagher defeated Steve Cutler with the big corner dropkick

* Lana defeated Sarah Bridges, the former Crazy Mary Dobson. Besides the dancing which some loved, Lana was pretty impressive here. She worked as a face and was over the crowd, winning with a fisherman’s spinebuster. This should be interesting, she showed lots of promise

* WWE Cruiserweight Champion Rich Swann was interrupted by Dan Matha to set up a match for later

* Tian Bing defeated Kona Reeves

* Gran Metalik defeated Noam Dar

* Mandy Rose defeated Daria. Mandy looked a little better too

* Roderick Strong defeated Tommy End in the match of the night

* WWE Cruiserweight Champion Rich Swann defeated Dan Matha in a non-title bout. They played the big guy vs. little guy story here with Swann getting the roll up out of nowhere. Fun match

* Eric Young, Big Damo and Alexander Wolfe defeated HoHo Lun, Tucker Knight and Otis Dozovic. Really fun main event with great work from everyone involved. Sanity is a much better presence with Big Damo. Nikki Cross was great as usual. After the match, Heavy Machinery cleared the ring and celebrated with Lun to end the show
