Bill Goldberg's final match under his current WWE contract will be against Universal Champion Roman Reigns at this month's Elimination Chamber, according to a report.

Fightful reported the news on Thursday, saying the working plan had been for Goldberg to be part of the Chamber event in Saudi Arabia with the most recent plans calling for the Reigns match.

Dave Meltzer has not been able to confirm the match as of yet, but did say Goldberg was planned for the show.

The two were originally supposed to square off at 2020's WrestleMania 36 for Goldberg's then-Universal title. Reigns withdrew from the match due to wanting to stay home with his young children during the pandemic and Braun Strowman took his place.

Last December, Goldberg said on the Pat McAfee Show that he had one match left on his deal.

The Saturday, February 12th show has the following matches confirmed:

  • Elimination Chamber match: WWE Champion Bobby Lashley defends against Brock Lesnar, Seth Rollins, Austin Theory, Riddle, and AJ Styles
  • Raw Women's Champion Becky Lynch defends against Lita
  • SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos defend against The Viking Raiders
