Following his Universal championship win, Bill Goldberg will be appearing on Friday Night SmackDown in Boston, Massachusetts.
Goldberg defeated The Fiend Bray Wyatt at Super ShowDown on Thursday in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia to regain the Universal title. The match lasted three minutes with The Fiend hit with four spears and a jackhammer before being pinned.
Goldberg will be appearing on SmackDown along with John Cena, who has been promoted to appear for several weeks and should lead to the program receiving a spike in viewership.
Both Goldberg and Cena are expected to have matches at WrestleMania 36 on Sunday, April 5th.
Goldberg last held the Universal title from February until April of 2017 when he dropped the title to Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 33 in Orlando. The following year, Goldberg was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame and did not wrestle again until June 2019. He came back for a match against The Undertaker in Saudi Arabia that did go over well and followed that with a quick victory against Dolph Ziggler in August at SummerSlam in Toronto.
