• Goldberg Gives A Major Update On His WWE Status
Earlier this year, WCW Legend Goldberg lost to Roman Reigns in a Universal Championship match at the Elimination Chamber 2022 premium live event in Saudi Arabia.
Goldberg repeatedly said in interviews that this was the final match of his current WWE contract, so everyone thought his contract expired after that match and that he’s a Free Agent now.
However, that’s not the case.
During an interview with The New York Post, Goldberg revealed that while he completed the number of matches he was obligated to do, he’s still under contract and could get a call from WWE anytime:
“I’m still waiting for that one [call] to happen one of these days. But I suppose you never retire in the wrestling world until you’re dead, so who knows.”
Goldberg also noted that he hasn’t underwent a shoulder surgery yet, but will eventually need to because his shoulder was “absolutely destroyed over the past 4 or 5 years.”
He noted that he was able to hide his shoulder injury from everybody during his recent WWE run:
“I have worked my a$$ off day, after day, after day to get to a point where I feel almost normal again.
I just kind of needed that break. I needed the mental focus of understanding that surgery wasn’t an option at the time and I needed to put my a$$ to the grindstone.
Hey, I may never get the call (from WWE), you never know. But you bet your a$$ I’ll be ready.”
Goldberg said he’s in “pretty good damn shape right now”, even better than the shape he was in when he faced Reigns & Bobby Lashley.
