On the return on Bill Goldberg to WWE:

BA: The angle on this I kind of took from last week’s WWE RAW. This whole thing with Rusev has got me a little, kind of, mixed up. What I think the plan is from Rusev is, and we are talking sports not storyline, I think Rusev’s plan is to spoil Goldberg’s comeback at Survivor Series and to either cost him the victory or get a disqualification somehow with interference. For Goldberg or Brock Lesnar. I think that if it’s not going to be one shot and it’s going to be more than one shot that we are going to see a Goldberg and Rusev feud as well. What do you think?
