• Bad News For Goldberg
Goldberg is currently a Free Agent, as his contract with WWE expired a while back.
He noted in an interview in March that WWE owes him a retirement match.
If WWE doesn’t give Goldberg a retirement match, AEW might. AEW President Tony Khan said during an interview that he’s paying attention to the Goldberg situation and is open to bringing him in.
During an interview on 93.7 The Ticket, Goldberg had the following to say about his retirement plans:
“I’ll stop the rumor mill right now. The reason the rumors are out there is because Vince McMahon and I had a handshake understanding that after the Roman Reigns match that I would have a proper retirement match. And that hasn’t come to fruition through them and therefore… nobody puts a stamp on my career.
Nobody tells me when I’m done. Period. End of story. When somebody tells me that, I kind of like to fight against it. I like to do things my own way. I go out my own way, and I certainly don’t go out under Roman Reigns 3 weeks after I have COVID and agreed to do a match.
If I go on a world tour and promote it myself, that’s a possibility. Hey, I’m a businessman, and I’m fortunately, you know, in the position I firmly believe to where I can still make it happen.
At the end of the day, like I said, I do believe that my character deserves a proper send-off. Until that happens man, I don’t believe I’m hanging them up, you know.
Anything and everything is an option. I’m very much leaning towards promoting it myself and doing a four-city world tour. So, let the rumor mill start up after that.”
In an update on this situation, RSN reached out to a tenured member of the creative team and WWE doesn’t have any plans to book Goldberg in a retirement match as of this writing.
If Triple H was going to book Goldberg’s retirement match in WWE, one would think it would be at WrestleMania 40 or SummerSlam 2023 at Ford Field, instead of a Saudi Arabia PPV. So we’ll have to wait for some time to see if WWE eventually gets onboard to booking Goldberg in a match one last time.
Goldberg’s last match took place in February 2022, where he lost to Roman Reigns in a Universal Championship match.
