The return of Goldberg to a WWE ring after a 12-year absence
has to be one of the most improbable feats in professional wrestling in the

Since then, Goldberg has wrestled very sparingly, but has
been placed on a level similar to another legend – The Undertaker. Goldberg has
largely been treated as an unstoppable monster, able to hang with other
unstoppable monsters. His routine is pretty much locked in at this stage – show
