SummerSlam 2016 will be on Sunday and WWE rumors suggest that a former World Heavyweight Champion is set to return. It is widely speculated that Bill Goldberg will have a form of altercation with Brock Lesnar to set up a huge match in the future.
According to PW Insider (h/t FanSided), Goldberg will be in Brooklyn this weekend to promote the WWE 2K17 video game. He is one of the legends included in the pre-order bonus but he is not currently signed with the WWE.
Many wrestling fans are now speculating that Goldberg will appear at SummerSlam. Add the fact that WWE 2K released a video of Lesnar telling his former adversary, “Hey Bill, you’re next.” You can watch the video below.

According to Anthony DiMoro of Forbes, the WWE is discussing the possibility of having an altercation between Goldberg and Lesnar at some point in SummerSlam. The Beast will be taking on Randy Orton at the biggest event of the summer.
DiMoro noted that the WWE rumors of Brock Lesnar vs. Bill Goldberg II may happen at WrestleMania 33. It is a way for the company to generate buzz for WrestleMania but also for the WWE 2K17 video game, as well as the WWE Network.
Lesnar and Goldberg faced each other at WrestleMania 20 in one of the worst matches in the history of the event. These two superstars can still draw a huge number of casual fans and them having a chance to redeem their previous match is great for the WWE Universe.
It should be noted that these are just WWE rumors at the moment and nothing has been confirmed by the company. However, the likelihood of Lesnar vs. Goldberg happening increased as the WWE has taken down the video above from their page.
