• Billy Gunn Comments On Goldberg & Batista Possibly Joining AEW, What They’ll Have To Do If They Sign With AEW
As we have noted before, there have been rumors that former WWE Champion Batista and WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg could be negotiating with All Elite Wrestling for a run in their company.
During a recent appearance on WINCLY, WWE Hall Of Fame Class Of 2019 inductee & AEW Producer Billy Gunn talked about Goldberg & Batista possibly joining AEW.
Below are the highlights:
On how Goldberg & Batista can help AEW:
“Name recognition and what they could bring to the company? Yes. Do I feel we need to focus on them in mixing them in with our talent? No.”

On if Goldberg & Batista’s AEW role would be similar to The New Age Outlaws’ role in their final WWE run (where they put over tag teams like The Usos and Cody Rhodes/Goldust):
“Yes, they (The Usos and Cody Rhodes/Goldust) had all the talent and just needed a little shove. I’m not saying that we made them, but we helped them. I would think that would be the same for Goldberg and Batista if they were coming. I have no idea. I feel that they would need to know that. If they come here, you’re here to help our talent and not get yourselves over.”
On AEW being an alternative to WWE:
“We’re just focused on Double or Nothing and working our way towards that. It’s a startup company. We’re brand new. It’s a great time for wrestling fans and for us as a company. We’ve got some great things, some new things coming. It’s gonna be exciting and it’s gonna be an alternative to WWE programming.
I wish I could tell you a whole lot of stuff that was going on. But unfortunately I don’t even know that….It’s coming along slowly, but it’s coming along very good.”
