According to a report on, Bill Goldberg’s virtual appearance on WWE Smackdown was designed to boost Smackdown’s viewership and to plant the seeds for a possible match against Roman Reigns in the future. 

The belief is that Goldberg would’ve appeared at the November Saudi Arabia event if one had taken place. also noted the following: 

“We’re also told ‘Vince McMahon couldn’t care less what anyone thinks about him using Goldberg’ and the head honcho still believes there is value in the Goldberg name.”
