#5 WWE News: WWE’s plans for Drew McIntyre vs. Goldberg at Royal Rumble 2021
At the RAW Legend Night episode, Drew McIntyre successfully defends his championship against Keith Lee in a good encounter. But a surprise came right after the main event WWE Championship match when Goldberg’s music hit and he came down to the ring. Goldberg then challenges Drew McIntyre for WWE Championship at Royal Rumble 2021 pay per view.
Now we have some backstage WWE plans regarding Drew McIntyre vs. Goldberg match at Royal Rumble. WWE Rumors and Spoilers 2021 stated that the decision of Drew McIntyre vs. Goldberg match made only take on Saturday. WWE originally planned Goldberg vs. Roman Reigns matches for Wrestlemania 37. But now WWE set match of Drew McIntyre vs. Goldberg at Royal Rumble.
Backstage details on WWE’s plan for Goldberg and Drew McIntyre at Royal Rumble
Here is WWE Latest News and Rumors:
“The Goldberg thing, so Bill Goldberg vs Drew McIntyre is going to be the main event of the Royal Rumble. So this was decided on Saturday. So if you’re wondering why Goldberg did all this buildup with Roman Reigns if he’s going to wrestle Drew McIntyre and it’s like, that is your answer. It wasn’t a swerve. Wasn’t to throw people off. It was because they had nobody ready for anything.”
Now WWE Championship match is set between Drew McIntyre and Goldberg for the 2021 Royal Rumble event. Prediction for the result of this match is quite difficult because on one side there is WWE Champion Drew McIntyre who WWE built a whole year. While another side there is WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg who has creative control in WWE for his matches and results. The latest example for this is Goldberg vs. The Fiend match result.
Possible scenarios for Goldberg and Drew McIntyre feud and WWE Championship
So here is the 50-50 situation match result could go either way. If WWE looking forward to a big rematch of Roman Reigns vs. Drew McIntyre for Universal Championship at Wrestlemania 37 then Goldberg could win this match.
If WWE has other big plans for Drew McIntyre with WWE Championship then Drew McIntyre successfully retains his title. One more thing can go Drew McIntyre’s way that Goldberg WWE deal is only for two matches in a year. So he already had on Royal Rumble show, now he left only match for the 2021 year and WWE probably looks for that match at a possible Saudi Arabia show later in a year. So it makes no sense that Goldberg wins this match and title and go ahead without any title defenses.
Another possible scenario is, Goldberg could wrestle his two matches on Royal Rumble 2021 and Wrestlemania 37 respectively. At Royal Rumble 2021, Goldberg defeated Drew McIntyre and become the new WWE Champion. Then either Drew McIntyre demands a rematch or finds a way to challenge Goldberg for WWE Championship at Wrestlemania 37. Then at Wrestlemania 37, we could see a rematch of Goldberg vs. Drew McIntyre for the WWE Title, and Drew McIntyre won back his WWE Championship.
This is all possible scenarios are visible for now.

#4 WWE Rumors: Original plans for WWE RAW Legends Night main event
Last night on RAW Legend Night episode, Goldberg gives us a surprise when he makes his WWE return and challenge Drew McIntyre for WWE Championship at Royal Rumble 2021 pay per view.
Now WWE latest updates 2021 suggested that after RAW went off air Drew McIntyre hits Glasgow Kiss to Goldberg. WWE Updates 2021 also stated that this is not an original plan of WWE for the RAW main event.
WWE Reports: Backstage update on the original plan for the RAW main event
WWE’s initial plan was to do Randy Orton vs. Jeff Hardy match in the RAW main event. Because Randy Orton provokes few WWE legends backstage throughout the RAW episode, all legends could include in that match.
But just hours before RAW went air, the decision was made that WWE Championship match to place in the main event of the show. So Goldberg surprises everyone with his returns and by the end of the RAW, he challenges Drew McIntyre for the title at Royal Rumble.
Here is WWE News:
“The original plan for the show was for Jeff Hardy vs. Randy Orton to close Raw but the decision was made late in the day to close with Keith Lee vs. Drew McIntyre instead and do the Goldberg angle.”
How WWE kept Goldberg hidden
Goldberg’s return was kept as a surprise the whole night and make well-hidden backstage also. Goldberg is not even listed in a RAW script to make it secret. WWE has to finish a RAW episode in a hurry because they run out of time, that’s why we saw an incomplete angle or segment between Drew McIntyre and Goldberg and RAW went off the air. WWE even cut out Drew McIntyre promos after the WWE Championship match.
This is the top WWE Headline from WWE Rumors Roundup: WWE’s plans for Drew McIntyre vs Goldberg, Original plans for RAW main event, and more.
#3 WWE Updates: SmackDown superstar likely to go for more training
Tyson Kidd WWE career as an in-ring performer in WWE is short-lived because of injury. But former Tag Team Champion work in WWE as a backstage agent.
In a recent interview, Rey Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio said that Dominik will be making a huge change in his life after moving to Florida for more training. Either Dominik training in WWE Performance Center or he works with Tyson Kidd to enhance his in-ring skills.
SmackDown Superstar likely to undergo more in-ring training with former Tag Team Champion Tyson Kidd
Here are the WWE Spoilers:
“Rey & Dominik Mysterio said Dominik will be moving to Florida temporarily so he can train more, either at the Performance Center in Orlando or at Tyson Kidd’s gym in Tampa.”
Despite Dominik Mysterio put amazing performance during whole his feud with Seth Rollins. He also gave an incredible performance in his debut match, he still not fully ready to be a top tier WWE superstar. So this training either at WWE PC or with Tyson Kidd could boost his in-ring skill and put him into another level in his WWE career.

#2 WWE Spoilers: Vince McMahon nixed plans for Keith Lee
We knew that Royal Rumble 2021 is scheduled to happen on 31st January 2021. WWE now slowly started to build a storyline and matches for the show. Till now, looks like at Royal Rumble Drew McIntyre vs. Goldberg for WWE Championship match and Roman Reigns vs. Kevin Owens for Universal Championship match could happen.
Apart from these two matches, WWE also confirmed few names for both Men and Women Royal Rumble matches like for women names confirmed are Nia Jax and Charlotte Flair and for men names confirmed are Daniel Bryan, Bobby Lashley, AJ Styles, and Randy Orton.
Now every fan thought about who going to win the Royal Rumble match this year. There are few names rumored for the winner that is Keith Lee, Big E, Goldberg, Brock Lesnar, and Daniel Bryan. But now we have some important backstage WWE News about WWE’s plans for Royal Rumble 2021.
Vince McMahon rejects plan for Keith Lee to win the Royal Rumble
WWE latest updates news stated that the creative team and other backstage personnel believe that Keith Lee has to win the 2021 Royal Rumble match. The reason behind Keith Lee’s name is his popularity among fans, so if that superstar wins the Royal Rumble match who has so much fan support then it could be beneficial for both WWE and that superstars. It’s easy for everyone to make a big and memorable moment at Wrestlemania.
However, Vince McMahon is not convinced with this name and maybe he scrapped this Royal Rumble plan. Vince McMahon believes and fears that giving Keith Lee big moments like win the Royal Rumble match could expose him as not being ready for the main roster or main event.
Here is the WWE report:
“WWE was strongly considering Keith Lee winning it (Royal Rumble) due to his popularity with WWE fans, but Vince McMahon threw the wrench into that idea. His input has been kind of shaded by underlings lately due to his age, but his thoughts on Lee make sense. Lee would be exposed as not being ready for the main roster, especially if he started early. Starting much later in the Rumble would confirm he wasn’t ready.”
Even recent WWE News also confirmed that Vince McMahon becomes so unpredictable backstage nowadays. He is very unsure right now about Royal Rumble 2021 plans.
The reason why Big E is also a big favorite to win the Royal Rumble
WWE New Updates also suggested that, if Keith Lee is out of the equation of winning a Royal Rumble match then Big E is the superstar who is a strong contender for winning Royal Rumble Match. Vince McMahon also like Big E and his in-ring performance.
But the question raise is, despite Big E is Intercontinental Champion right now WWE still going with the same plan and let Big E win the Royal Rumble match and challenge Roman Reigns for the title. If WWE takes off the IC championship from Big E then it’s also not fair and good for Big E’s momentum.
So right now, we have more questions than answers. There are other names like Brock Lesnar and Daniel Bryan who are top contenders to win the Royal Rumble match right now if we extract names like Keith Lee, Big E, and Goldberg.
