Following his big title win over "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt in the main event of WWE Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia earlier today, WWE has announced that the Hall of Famer champion will be returning to SmackDown at the TD Garden in Boston tomorrow night.
There's no word yet on what Goldberg will be doing tomorrow night, but WWE is teasing that The Fiend may be there to confront him. As we've noted, Roman Reigns vs. Goldberg is rumored for WrestleMania 36, so they could begin the build for that.
Below is WWE's announcement on Goldberg's return:
New Universal Champion Goldberg will be LIVE on SmackDown
Goldberg is headed to Friday Night SmackDown, and he's bringing the Universal Title with him.
The WWE Hall of Famer sent shockwaves through the sports entertainment world when he defeated "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt at WWE Super ShowDown. Instead of who's next, the WWE Universe will be wondering what's next for Goldberg as he heads into his second reign as Universal Champion.
Will "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt reemerge to confront the first man to stop his twisted rampage? Or will Goldberg target a new member of Team Blue?
Tune in to Friday Night SmackDown on FOX at 8/7 C to catch the new Universal Champion's next move.
WWE previously announced that hometown star John Cena will return to SmackDown on this week's episode. It's rumored that Cena will be there to begin his WrestleMania 36 feud with The Fiend, but that wasn't confirmed.
Stay tuned for updates on this week's SmackDown.
