After more than 12 years away from wrestling, Bill Goldberg will make his long-awaited return to the WWE on next week's Monday Night Raw.
The 49-year-old took to Twitter to announce that he would be appearing on the programme to address Paul Heyman's challenge on behalf of his client, Brock Lesnar.
The former WCW and WWE world heavyweight champion last competed in a match at WrestleMania XX in March 2004. That bout against Lesnar was lambasted by fans and critics, and it seemed Goldberg's career had ended on a sour note. He may now wish to rectify that.
Booking my flight to answer that big mouth @HeymanHustle 's challenge next week in person on #MondayNightRaw #WhosNext? #seeyathere @WWE

Fans have speculated as to whether or not Goldberg would return for years, but it was when he became a downloadable character on WWE 2k17 that it began to be mooted as a real possibility.
