    Goldberg, Brock Lesnar and The Undertakerwill be a part of WWE's next event in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

    WWE today officially announced that they will return to the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, on Friday, June 7th at 8 p.m. AST. In addition to Goldberg, Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker, WWE announced Roman Reigns, Kofi Kingston, Braun Strowman, Seth Rollins and AJ Styles for the event.

    No matches have been announced as of this writing, although The Undertaker is rumored to be wrestling Elias. If Goldberg faces Brock Lesnar, it would be their fourth meeting on pay-per-view. Goldberg won the first two matches at WrestleMania XX and Survivor Series 2016. Lesnar, who recently announced that he would not be returning to the UFC, defeated then-WWE Universal Champion Goldberg for the title at WrestleMania 33 in 2017 in Goldberg's last match for the company.

    It will be WWE's first event in Saudi Arabia since the controversial Crown Jewel show last November in Riyadh. WWE held the event despite backlash after Saudi Arabia was believed to have ordered the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

    You can check out WWE's full announcement below:

    Sounds like his contract was up, he took bids from the WWE and UFC. Took the one that would be easiest and make him the most money.

    Does anyone know how much WWE stars make compared to UFC fighters? Wouldn't be surprised if it was a lot more.

    And don't get me wrong I think WWE is a joke, but I think the narrative that it's "easy money" is also untrue. I've heard that those guys actually put a ton of abuse on their bodies with some of those stunts. Could be wrong though

    Can’t blame him, no testing no real fighting and tons of money.

    Why retire? WWE is easy money compared to MMA.

    Especially if you're Brock Lesnar.

    "According to figures from mid-2018, Brock Lesnar is WWE’s highest paid male employee, making 12 million dollars a year plus live event feels."

    I think he's "retired" from MMA. He's never going to give up the WWE.

    He did what a smart man does. He played the angles always knowing that no matter what he would come out with more money in the end.

    He’s not really stupid, and is blameless in holding up the HW division. That’s all on Cormier.

    What I found strange is that he was in the testing pool for over half a year for this... a negotiation.

    They get seriously fucked up a lot and most can hardly walk after retiring. It's not easy traveling and performing 300 days a year either. They do get paid well depending on who you are. Most make 500k a year while a few top stars can make 1mill and up. Brock makes something like 6mill

    brock fought mark hunt under WWE contract

    right now is a good time to be Brock because there's a pakistani billionaire trying to start a wrestling promotion in the USA right now and so brock probably got offers from that guy, WWE, and UFC
