WWE has confirmed new Universal Champion Bill Goldberg will be appearing on SmackDown on February 28, 2020. Here is the announcement from WWE:
Goldberg is headed to Friday Night SmackDown, and he’s bringing the Universal Title with him.
The WWE Hall of Famer sent shockwaves through the sports entertainment world when he defeated “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt at WWE Super ShowDown. Instead of who’s next, the WWE Universe will be wondering what’s next for Goldberg as he heads into his second reign as Universal Champion.
Will “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt reemerge to confront the first man to stop his twisted rampage? Or will Goldberg target a new member of Team Blue?
Rumors are we’re going to get Goldberg vs. Roman Reigns at WrestleMania. However, we have The Elimination Chamber before we get to WrestleMania.
Based on what is being reported, it seems we should see Wyatt interact with the returning John Cena to set up the rumored Cena match for WrestleMania.

As such, it would follow wrestling logic that there will be some kind of multi-man challenge to set up the 6 participants in the Elimination Chamber.
