She also posted a picture of a reset button on her Instagram with the following caption:
“I will press the RESET button!! I will be OFFLINE for a short while! Need a change! Will change! Body, mind and soul needs a break!! 10 days of fasting, including keeping off from social media, is the first step. Second one, which I look most forward too is changing my look! And i change my profession… one came to an end and one is rising like a Phoenix. Watch out for it! Thank you for being on this journey.”
It seems that professional wrestling may not be where Gabert pops back up, but it will be exciting to see what she has in store next.
Goldberg Versus Roman Reigns Coming Soon?
This is taking a couple leaps, but could the next Saudi Arabia marquee match be Roman Reigns versus Goldberg? When addressing why he punches a pad during his entrance, Reigns took a shot at Goldberg’s propensity for headbutting doors. Goldberg responded, so is this a feud in the making?
1 of those “C’mon man” ESPN moments. I’ll stick with my old school ways ….seems to of worked 99% of the time. We all have bad days. I tend to tap into an entirely different level of intensity. Doesn’t work for everyone. Kinda like the difference between #UGA & GeorgieTech. 🤣 https://t.co/MpixoWjgDU

WWE loves to bring in old, established names for Saudi shows. With another Saudi show rumored for the end of February, now would be the time for WWE to start building towards it.
One for the Road:
What year is it!?
