Jim Ross dropped some huge news on this week’s episode of The Ross Report. As noted earlier, Bill Goldberg has been in discussions with WWE and the word was that there was a very good chance that the deal was already agreed to. Ross said that his sources tell him that the plans are for Bill Goldberg to face Brock Lesnar. Ross said that if it were up to him then he’d book that match for WrestleMania.
Ross later went on social media and said that, according to another source, the deal is done and that the match is likely to go down at Survivor Series. If this is true then this probably means that WWE has other plans for Lesnar at WrestleMania. I don’t see WWE giving away that match and then having them fight again just a few months later.
Goldberg will be appearing on ESPN’s “Off The Top Rope” segment on Wednesday night so official confirmation might be coming soon from the man himself.
