Well if tickets for next Monday’s RAW in Denver weren’t already a hot item, they certainly are after last nights announcement that Bill Goldberg will return to a WWE ring to address the challenge from Brock Lesnar.
Goldberg took to twitter last night to announce his return.

Many of the more savvy wrestling observers, like yours truly, thought this was coming, but it is premature? Ratings for RAW have been in a free fall and the election isn’t to blame. The in-ring product has been tough to watch and Lesnar doesn’t have great options to work with on the current show.
But what shape is Goldberg in? He last wrestled full-time in 2004 – 12 years ago and expectations should be at a minimum to think this time around will be much different than the first Goldberg / Lesnar feud.
