When Bill Goldberg returned to the WWE in October, many expect it was just a one-off deal as a farewell match for his family and fans.
After the world witnessed him take out Brock Lesnar in less than 90 seconds, Goldberg came out on Monday Night Raw to announce that he is entering the 30-man Royal Rumble match in January. And upon leaving Toronto and heading back home, the former World Champion spoke with ESPN about his future inside a WWE ring.
"I'm only as good as my next appearance and my next match," he told ESPN's Brian Campbell. "I'm concentrating on the Royal Rumble and that's it. I don't have any plans of doing anything afterwards. My focus is on the 29 other men that I'm going to have to crucify to win that damn match."
He went on to talk about what viewers should expect to see when he makes his way into the ring for the Royal Rumble at the Alamodome in San Antonio, TX.
"My fans can expect the same thing that they hopefully fell in love with years ago," he said. "I'm still the same guy mentally and emotionally. But things have changed and I don't present myself physically maybe the same way. But it doesn't mean that inside of this mind there's still not that monster that's ready to come out."
Should he win the Royal Rumble match, Goldberg will be on the way to a championship match at WrestleMania 33 in Orlando.
