WWE Hall of Famer targets Roman Reigns

WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg has scores to settle with Roman Reigns.

Earlier this year the two powerhouses collided in a dream match at Elimination Chamber in Saudi Arabia, where Tribal Chief knocked out Goldberg to retain his Universal Championship. Since then, the mark has not competed inside the squared circle.

Speaking on the latest episode of WWE’s The BumpIn , Goldberg listed a way to stop the Roman Reigns juggler. The former Universal Champion said he needed to give the Bloodline leader a “little receipt” for his strangulation in Saudi Arabia.

“Well, I don’t have any matches left on my contract, but I know a way we can take care of him. I need to give him a little receipt for that little choke-out in Saudi Arabia. I guess That there are so many superstars out there who have been able to oust him from power.” [From 25:23 to 25:43]

WWE WrestleMania 36. Roman Reigns and Goldberg to face off in

The Tribal Chief and Goldberg are two of the most popular wrestlers of any generation, and so WWE didn’t want to miss the opportunity to pit them against each other on the biggest stage.

The pair were scheduled to clash at WrestleMania 36 after Reigns challenged Goldberg to the Universal Championship. However, the match could not take place after the head of the table opted to pull out amid concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic.

Meanwhile, Goldberg defended the Universal Championship against Braun Strowman at Showcase of Immortals, where The Monster Among Men captured the title.

Reigns returned to WWE at SummerSlam later that year, attacking new Universal Champion Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman after their match for the title. The Bloodline leader captured the title at the next premium live event, Payback.

Tribal Chief has been unstoppable after defeating every opponent including Brock Lesnar, Finn Balor and Kevin Owens.

Reigns also had the opportunity to rethink his feud with Goldberg after Goldberg returned to challenge The Head of the Table. However, the former WCW star succumbed to the guillotine to lose the match via technical submission.
