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?
Tune in to Friday Night SmackDown on FOX at 8/7 C to catch the new Universal Champion’s next move.
Goldberg appearing on this week’s SmackDown had been teased on commentary after he defeated Wyatt to win the Universal Championship. Goldberg won the match with a Jackhammer after hitting four spears and fighting out of the Mandible Claw twice.
At Elimination Chamber on March 8, there will be an Elimination Chamber match to determine Goldberg’s challenger for WrestleMania 36. Dave Meltzer reported before Super ShowDown that Goldberg vs. Roman Reigns and Wyatt vs. John Cena are now scheduled for WrestleMania.
Cena will also be in Boston to make his return to WWE television on this Friday’s SmackDown.
