Goldberg's WWE return tour will continue at the Royal Rumble show on January 29, where he'll be one of 30 entries in WWE's annual Rumble match. It's expected that we'll have a better idea of who the former WCW and WWE World Heavyweight Champion will wrestle at WrestleMania 33 after the event is over
Most expect WWE to set up a third match between Brock Lesnar and Goldberg at the Royal Rumble show, and while a third match between the two megastars would be huge, there are a few other WWE superstars who could be in the ring with Goldberg at WrestleMania 33.
Arguably the biggest match WWE could do -- aside from Lesnar vs. Goldberg 3 -- is Goldberg vs. John Cena, and on Sunday, when asked about it on Twitter, Goldberg commented on a possible match with WWE's biggest star.
Before the highly anticipated Survivor Series main event between Goldberg and Brock Lesnar, John Cena did an interview with Hollywood Life, where he picked Lesnar to defeat the returning Goldberg.
"Brock Lesnar! Brock… anybody! Who do I got? Brock Lesnar! People can see that individual on television and see him live. I have been in there with him a bunch and I have been in there with him for 15 years. He hasn't aged a second, he is still gifted, he is still athletic and he is still destructive. Brock Lesnar against anybody I would… I don't know who is going to beat Brock!"[embed]https://twitter.com/JohnCena/status/804801612573265920[/embed]
According to Cageside Seats, John Cena is upset with WWE over Goldberg's return. To be clear, Cena doesn't have a personal issue with Goldberg, but he's upset that the ex-WCW megastar made boatloads of money for just one match, and he feels that he should be treated the same when he comes back.
While there is tension between John Cena and WWE, it's been described as "friendly tension," and it likely won't have any impact on Cena's future with the company.
As previously mentioned, most are expecting that WWE will set up a third match between Brock Lesnar and Goldberg at some point in the next month or two, but that doesn't mean that Goldberg won't be in the ring with someone else at a future WrestleMania. According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Goldberg got a big money deal from WWE, and he's willing to wrestle as many times as they want him to, as long as they keep paying him that same price. So, if they want him for WrestleMania 34 in 2018, they'll have to meet his demands, and they probably will.
While John Cena and Goldberg have never competed in a one-on-one match with one another, they have been in the ring -- albeit for a brief period of time -- as they were both late entrants in the 2004 Royal Rumble match.
As of right now, it looks like John Cena will be in the ring with The Undertaker at WrestleMania 33, and, as previously mentioned, Goldberg will be in the ring with Brock Lesnar at the very same event. So, if you want to see Goldberg vs. Cena, you'll probably have to wait until WrestleMania 34, unless WWE decides to pump up next August's SummerSlam show by having the two headline it.
Goldberg will appear next on WWE television on the January 2 edition of Monday Night Raw. As for Cena's next WWE appearance, well, as of this writing, he's not officially advertised for any upcoming shows, but most are expecting him to be in, and possibly win, the 2017 Royal Rumble match. So, it's probably pretty safe to assume that Cena will be back on WWE television at some point before the Royal Rumble on January 29.
