WrestleMania 30 Rumors [VIDEO]: The Ultimate Warrior vs. Ryback At The Event? Goldberg Plans Nixed?
The Ultimate Warrior will be inducted into the WWE's Hall of Fame the night before WrestleMania XXX at the New Orleans Arena, but his involvement in the weekend may surpass that as The Warrior may have his first WWE match since 1996 at the event as there is a rumor circulating he may take on Ryback at the biggest show of the year.
For months, it has been rumored that Bill Goldberg would take on Ryback at the show in his first WrestleMania appearance in a decade, but with his money demands being "very significant," the WWE may not bring Goldberg on board anymore. Reports of past negotiations indicated it wasn't going well as the WWE didn't want to pay Goldberg what he wanted and Goldberg didn't like the WWE's negotiating tactics.
Wrestlingheadlines.com reports that with Goldberg's talks with the company hitting a snag, The Warrior may be involved in a match with Ryback now. The report indicates that the company's talks with Goldberg are pretty much dead now due to the money issues and The Warrior may be the one to step up and take on Ryback.
The Warrior's new deal he signed with the WWE to join the Hall of Fame and be a part of WrestleMania weekend may include one more match for the wrestling legend, according to the report. The Warrior will get inducted in the Hall of Fame on April 5 and may get one final sendoff match on April 6 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome at WrestleMania XXX.
The Warrior hasn't wrestled a match at WrestleMania since he defeated Triple H at WrestleMania XII in Anaheim in 1996.
If the match happens, it will join five other matches that are expected to happen at the event. The other rumored and mostly confirmed matches include Randy Orton vs. Batista for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt, Brock Lesnar vs. The Undertaker, CM Punk vs. Triple H and Daniel Bryan vs. Sheamus.
While it's not definite, there is a chance that The Ultimate Warrior will have one more opportunity to run down the ramp at WrestleMania like a mad man and shake the ropes in front of thousands of fans at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
