Watch legendary '90s wrestler Goldberg make a dramatic return to the WWE on Raw

How's that for nostalgia?

This week's Monday Night Raw saw one of the biggest wresters of the '90s make an explosive return to the squared circle.

It's been 12 years since Goldberg last set foot inside a WWE ring, but when Brock Lesnar challenged the 49-year-old to a match at next month's Survivor Series, it was clearly too good an opportunity for him to pass up.

Goldberg's inclusion in newly-released video game WWE2K17 meant his comeback came as no great surprise, but watching the former WWE and WCW World Heavyweight Champion make such a triumphant and emotional entrance after so many years out of the game sent fans into meltdown.

His brief stint in the WWE was memorable in itself, but Goldberg's 173-0 undefeated streak in WCW singles competition may well never be surpassed.

His final appearance in the WWE came after beating Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania XX, in a match refereed by Stone Cold Steve Austin. His parting gift from The Texas Rattlesnake was a Stone Cold Stunner. How friendly.

Whether a rematch of that controversial 'Mania bout will actually be any good is anyone's guess, but the reception the iconic wrestler received from the current roster of Raw Superstars, who lined up to applaud him as he made his way to the ring, showed that his return is a welcome one.
