Goldberg’s return to the WWE looks to have changed numerous original plans that the company had put in place for WrestleMania 33.
Before there was even any inkling of a Goldberg return, rumors were circulating around that we would be seeing Shane McMahon battle Brock Lesnar in Orlando.
This obviously changes the plans for McMahon, and the role he could play at the Grandest Stage of Them All.
He’s still expected to compete at the event, and ‘The Inquisitr’ are reporting that he could be going up against Dean Ambrose instead.
WWE have started to show some on-screen tension between the pair already, and they’re doing it now so they can set up the feud for later, while The Lunatic Fringe is still involved in challenging AJ Styles for the WWE World Championship at the TLC pay-per-view.
They’re claiming nothing significant will happen between McMahon and Ambrose until the rivalry with The Phenomenal One comes to an end.
This also suggest that Ambrose could potentially complete his long rumored heel turn in time for that match if it’s definitely the feud they decide to go with.
For Ambrose, the immediate plan is for him to have a match with James Ellsworth at some point, but we all know that’s not a WrestleMania-worthy bout, so we may have to wait until next year for things to really kick off with him again.
Don’t expect this one to unfold until 2017, though.
