Pro wrestler Bill Goldberg took time out of his busy schedule of going to the bathroom to do “number two” twenty times a day in order to reveal on Instagram this week that he is shooting a commercial for DirecTV Now:
Goldberg, who stepped away from the ring earlier this year after losing the WWE Universal Championship to Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania, also teased a possible return to the ring, but the DirecTV now commercial is potentially more interesting because of its implications.
AT&T has recently been relying on an ad campaign featuring Mark Wahlberg to draw customers to the popular but non-lucrative streaming Live TV service. Could the company have already tired of Wahlberg, who carries very strong favorability and trust ratings with consumers, and are they pinning their hopes on the former world champion instead? Will Goldberg go on to lose the DirecTV Now spokesmanship to Kevin Nash after interference from Scott Hall? How many times a day does Wahlberg poop?!
These are just some of the questions raised by this exciting Instagram post that make it worthy of becoming a “news” article on this slow Sunday afternoon. But here’s one more for you to answer in the comments: If Goldberg returns to WWE (provided he can stay off the toilet long enough to have another match), who would you like to see him face? Lesnar, again? Samoa Joe? Roman Reigns? Jinder Mahal? Mark Walhberg in a DirecTV Now sponsorship on a pole match? Let is know, because god knows you’ve got nothing better to do if you’re reading this.
