During the night, Italian time, FOX broadcast an episode of WWE Backstage, an in-depth column on content related to the McMahon family company, which had not been staged for several months, due to the cancellation of the same by the broadcaster television, which did not see enough response from the public.
This transmission was entirely dedicated to the construction of the Royal Rumble, the first WWE PPV of 2021, which will be broadcast tonight and which will see both Royal Rumble matches valid for a title shot in Wrestlemania 37, with the numbers 1 and 2 of the male one and number 30 of the female match, which was announced during tonight's live broadcast.
In addition to dedicating themselves to the official announcements, the WWE Backstage presenters also paused to talk about the other challenges of the Rumble, with one of them more than the others, which attracted a lot of criticism.
We are obviously talking about the challenge valid for the WWE Championship that will see reigning champion Drew McIntyre and Hall of Famer Bill Goldberg compete against each other. Paige isn't a fan of Goldberg returning and getting a WWE title match at the 2021 Royal Rumble event.
Goldberg is currently 54 years old
To the microphones of WWE Backstage, the former WWE world champion Paige, wanted to launch an accusation against Da Man, guilty of having taken a place that according to her should not belong to him, with Paige who, in fact, stated: "Honestly, even though I'm a Goldberg fan, right? I don't feel it's right that he got into this.
I think Drew is having a huge build and has had it all last year. He is literally pulling the whole company from babyface. And I think he's doing it damn well. Then there are people who have been there for a long time, waiting for an opportunity and unfortunately, it never comes.
I don't think it's fair that Goldberg is there and I don't think even more that he has to win." Again, Paige has done nothing but emphasize what several fans and insiders have been saying for weeks, with the surprising entry of Da Man in the titled round of Raw which in addition to being a very great attraction, is however also a magnet for criticism and grumbling from fans, who from the challenge launched to Raw Legends, do nothing but criticize the Stamford company for choice.
Paige isn't the only one who has criticized Goldberg's return and him getting a WWE title shot. Ever since Goldberg returned at RAW Legends Night, several WWE Superstars have taken shots at him, including King Corbin and Riddle.
