Bill Goldberg officially announced as the first entrant in the 2017 Royal Rumble



As announced during the first segment of Monday Night Raw, Bill Goldberg will be entering the 2017 Royal Rumble. Goldberg came out at the start of this week's Raw and teased that he was going to retire before saying that Stephanie McMahon approached him backstage on Sunday and asked if he had one more title run in him. In actuality, Goldberg signed a deal last week that would see him wrestling at least a few more dates with WWE and the eventual plan is for one more rematch with Brock Lesnar.

The 2017 Royal Rumble will take place from the Alamodome in San Antonio. Expect the company to load that show up moreso than previous Rumble's because the idea is for that show to be a part of a destination weekend with NXT and Monday Night Raw also running from the same city and they need to fill up the 60,000+ capacity Alamodome.

The Royal Rumble will air live on the WWE Network on 1/19/17.
