Goldberg WWE deal revealed, Brock Lesnar for Royal Rumble & Daniel Bryan shoots on WWE creative

23 November 2016 2:57 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Coming soon to a DVD bargain bin near you…Bill Goldberg’s new film Check Point.

You’ve seen him beat up Brock Lesnar in just 1 minute 26 seconds. Now you can enjoy Goldberg beating up domestic terrorists for a considerably longer hour and a half.

In a very timely press release, Sicily Publicity – which sounds like a Mafia front organisation if I’ve ever heard one – have announced that Goldberg’s new film will be getting a limited release on the 29th January, 2017 – the same day as the Royal Rumble, which Bill announced he’ll be entering on this week’s episode of Raw.

And one of Goldberg’s potential 29 opponents in that match might have already been revealed…

According to Pro Wrestling Sheet – who broke the news that Goldberg would be in the Royal Rumble match, so they’re pretty reliable – Brock Lesnar has also been booked for the annual 30-man over-the-top-rope elimination match. »
