Matt Riddle used the GTS on Seth Rollins on Raw, but not as a finisher, as just another move in the match. Many fans noted that the GTS is CM Punk’s finisher.

Riddle is no stranger to controversy, trashing Goldberg and Brock Lesnar in the past. WWE Hall Of Famer Goldberg returned to WWE in 2016 after a hiatus of more than 12 years from the company. He decimated Brock Lesnar in a squash match at Survivor 2016 and then win the Universal Championship against Kevin Owens in 2017. He defended his title against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 33 in one of the show’s main events.  As revealed by his contract, Vince McMahon can only have him compete in one more match every year, so it needs to be meaningful. It was rumored to be the last match of his contract, so it may be his retirement match. Goldberg was also previously diagnosed with a bad illness as well. 

He had two matches against Bobby Lashley at WWE SummerSlam and then WWE Crown Jewel on October 21st, 2021 in Saudi Arabia respectively. Goldberg beat Lashley in the second match. Since then, the WWE Hall Of Famer has been absent from WWE television.

Goldberg squared off against Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship at the WWE Elimination Chamber event in Saudi Arabia on February 19th. The Tribal Chief ended up winning the match as well.

During the most recent episode of Wrestling Outlaws, EC3 discussed why Goldberg defeating Bray Wyatt was one of the most crushing moments in wrestling.

“And then comes Saudi [Super ShowDown], and The Fiend had a match with Goldberg, who runs through him real fast. Wrestling is make believe, wins and losses don’t matter, but in that moment creativity really dies for me. Because if that doesn’t get time to play out, a conclusion or give it time to work, if they are going to pull the rug on that so quickly when it worked so well and it was so interesting, and it was so hard to do, I was like, nothing matters. Nothing will ever matter if the business stays the same, something has to change somehow.”

Speaking on the latest episode of Sportskeeda’s The Wrestling Outlaws podcast, Vince Russo shared his thoughts about Bray Wyatt.

I think Bray [Wyatt] is definitely, one million percent, we never talked; we actually dmed a little a couple of times which was really cool for me. I now hope he’s going back on his terms. I hope he got it in writing, “If we’re gonna do this, I’m doing this my, weather it’s creative control, whatever it is, I’m sure he’s smart enough to ensure that BS is not gonna happen.
