Bill Goldberg reportedly received more money for working the Saudi Arabia Super Showdown event in April than he made for the entire year when he first came to WWE back in 2003-2004 which was around $1 million back then.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter also reports that his payoff for the Saudi show was less than the $3 million annually he was making with WCW so that would make his earnings in the $1-$3 million range for just that one match, enough to bring him back out of "retirement."
It's unclear how much Shawn Michaels and/or the Undertaker made for their matches but the amount was obviously enough for them to also return, especially in Michaels' case as he has generally shown little interest in wrestling again.
