WWE universe celebrated and roared in unison when Goldberg announced his intention to battle it out with 29 other superstars for the Royal Rumble title in order to have a shot at the WWE Universal Championship belt at Wrestlemania. Taking the ring first at WWE Raw on Monday night, the WCW icon narrated the episode which saw him going back on his promise of bidding adieu to the ring after Survivor Series. On Sunday night, at Survivor Series, Goldberg ended his 12-year hiatus from the ring and took on the mammoth challenge that is facing Brock Lesnar.

And that challenge proved to be a whimper when Lesnar was defeated in just 84 seconds for what turned into a beating for the Beast Incarnate. With two spears and a Jackhammer, Goldberg destroyed Lesnar and ended his period of dominance that had last seen him leave Randy Orton a bloody mess at SummerSlam.

Post the win, Goldberg was asked by WWE Raw’s Commissioner Stephanie McMahon whether he had a title shot left in him after the beating he handed out to Lesnar. And in typical Goldberg manner, he announced on Raw, that he was not going to back out from a challenge.

However, his way to the potential title challenge had its shortest route in the form of participation in the Royal Rumble match that would see him become one of the 30 competitors who would bid for a title shot.

Twitterverse was also abuzz with excitement after the announcement that could shape up the WWE for the next few months or at least till Royal Rumble in January in Texas.

The winnner of the Royal Rumble goes on to compete in the Wrestlemania showdown for the championship match. Do you think Goldberg has it in him to get that surprise win and keep this momentum going?
