Goldberg's career could be nearing the end

In recent weeks, a great name from the past of the Stamford-based company has come back into vogue again, which for a long time was not present in the rings of the McMahon-owned company, having been quite far from the whole world of pro-wrestling, but which in the 90s was instead a cornerstone of the Turner family's WCW.
Just Bill Goldberg, along with a few others: Sting, Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, Bret Hart and other great legends of the pro-wrestling world, having made the WCW give a lot of trouble to the WWF. After WCW closed, WWF bought the entire package, also acquiring and contracting numerous wrestlers, including Bill Goldberg.
After partially retiring in 2004, Da Man waited years before returning to the WWE rings, from which he has not been absent until today, except for long breaks during the year, between one match and another.
What's next for Goldberg?
At the moment, Da Man's next big challenge in the WWE rings will arrive on February 19th at Elimination Chamber, with the WWE Hall of Famer going to challenge the company's Universal Champion, Roman Reigns.
Prior to that date, Goldberg is also advertised in the Friday Night Smackdown episode which will have aired this Friday, with Reigns being so forewarned. Apparently, next week's episode of Friday Night Smackdown was also supposed to be recorded this week, due to the travel problems that WWE will have in view of the PPV in Arabia that will take place the next day.
After Elimination Chamber, however, it seems that the Stamford-based company no longer has plans for Goldberg, so Da Man will be taking his usual post-PPV break. WWE has advertised the in-ring veteran for two SmackDown episodes before Elimination Chamber.
However, they haven't advertised him for any of the shows after the premium live event, heading into Wrestlemania 38. This indicates that his current run on the main roster is set to end on February 19 in Saudi Arabia. This week's episode of SmackDown is set to emanate from the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans.
WWE will also tape next week's Elimination Chamber Go-Home episode of the blue brand. The former WCW World Champion has been advertised for both shows.
