Last night (July 15), Fightful broke the news that WWE was planning on bringing Goldberg back to the company on this Monday’s episode of Raw, to set up a match with WWE Champion Bobby Lashley at SummerSlam.
This news, as expected, has been very polarising among wrestling fans, with many of them furious that the company would bring Goldberg back in for a championship match.
A sample of the reactions from Twitter can be seen below:
AEW: Continuously makes new stars by putting a title on Ricky Starks, giving Sammy Guevara a huge win in his home state, main event with Ethan Page & Darby Allin in a classic Coffin match.
WWE: Brings back Goldberg as soon as the fans return. With zero plans to push new stars.

Goldberg’s last WWE match was back at the Royal Rumble, where he failed to wrestle the WWE Championship away from then-champion Drew McIntyre. So naturally he’s in line for another attempt.
It remains to be seen whether Goldberg will make his return on Monday’s show.
