RAW may have ended 2016 with a whimper, but the WWE's flagship show kicked off 2017 with a moment for the ages. The return of Goldberg could have simply featured the WCW legend cutting yet another promo on Brock Lesnar, however, the WWE gave us a glimpse of some of the magic we will see in the 2017 Rumble when Goldberg faced off with Kevin Owens, Chris Jericho, Roman Reigns and even Braun Strowman!
Here's how Twitter reacted to the first show on the road to the Royal Rumble.
