WWE is already building up its card for WrestleMania 36 in early April, but there is still a lot of work to be done. Not much has yet been revealed for the big pay-per-view, but there are plenty of rumors swirling around. Now, there is apparently confirmation that Goldberg will stick around and definitely have a part in the “Grandest Stage of Them All.”
It was announced last week that Goldberg was coming back for another match and he’s already been scheduled for one at Super ShowDown. At the event in Saudi Arabia, Goldberg will challenge “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt for the Universal Championship, which he won a few years ago.
Some believed that Goldberg was returning to WWE for just one match and a big payday from the Saudi Arabia event, but that may not be the case. As reported by The Inquisitr, rumors are flying around that he could stick around and face either John Cena or Wyatt at WrestleMania 36.
That was as of Thursday, but Friday has even more confirmation coming to the inclusion of Goldberg at the PPV. According to a tweet from Brad Shepard of Pro Sports Extra, a source in WWE has stated that it is “fully expected” that he will be a part of WrestleMania 36 in Tampa.

At this point, this is pure speculation and should be taken as nothing more than a rumor. Plans for WrestleMania 36 still have a lot of time to be altered — or even scrapped entirely — if they don’t end up working out as WWE hopes they will.
There is no true way of knowing if WWE has concrete plans to have Goldberg involved in a match or anything at the PPV. While one report has two possible match options for the Hall of Famer, another report just says he will be a part of the event, which could mean that he will be there — but not necessarily as a competitor.
Last year, Goldberg returned to face The Undertaker in a match at Super ShowDown during the summer. After that, he came back for one more match at SummerSlam, defeating Dolph Ziggler before disappearing again.
As of this time, the only thing that is confirmed by WWE is his match against Wyatt at Super ShowDown. That contest has been scheduled and will definitely happen, but only time will tell if there is truth to any of the rumors regarding his future matches.
