Goldberg returning to WWE at WrestleMania 31 is the hot new rumor

Rusty Jarrett

In the months leading up to WrestleMania 30 on April 6, 2014, in New Orleans, rumors were hot and heavy that Bill Goldberg, a huge star for World Championship Wrestling (WCW) in the late 1990s before he was booked into the ground, was interested in working the show.

Apparently, the interest was mutual but a deal could not be reached, reportedly because it made little financial sense to meet his high price tag with the show WWE had planned.

The event was a smashing success and the company was proven right to stay away.

But what about WrestleMania 31, scheduled for March 29, 2015, in Santa Clara, California?

According to the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter (subscription required but recommended), Goldberg "definitely has interest" in working the show "if the right deal can be made". WWE might actually bite this year considering it really has few returning stars to break out next year. Hulk Hogan and Ultimate Warrior both came back for this year's show, not to mention appearances from The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin.

This will also be the first year the company will be selling the event without the Undertaker's streak as a major promotional point of interest.

So expect the hot new rumor for the next year to center around Goldberg and whether or not WWE brings him back to work a match at WrestleMania 31.

That good with you, Cagesiders?
