For those wondering, Bill Goldberg’s WWE 2K17 deal is through 2K Sports and not WWE. 2K Sports needed Vince McMahon’s approval to even include him in the game.
With that being said, there is a lot of speculation in regards to a possible Goldberg return to WWE. In previous 2K Sports deals, talents such as Brock Lesnar, The Ultimate Warrior and Sting wound up appearing on WWE television after signing the game deals.
Also, Goldberg said in an interview last year that he’d like to make a return so that his son can see him wrestle.
