• Goldberg Will Suffer “Unintended Consequences” If He Joins AEW, According To WCW Legend
On a recent episode of the Strictly Business podcast, Eric Bischoff warned fellow WCW Legend Bill Goldberg that there will be a lot of consequences that he can not control, if he in fact chooses to accept a potential offer from Tony Khan to join All Elite Wrestling as sort of a special part-time attraction, like he was in WWE between 2016 and 2022.
Here’s what Bischoff had to say:
“I doubt Bill (Goldberg) needs the money. That rush doesn’t get any better than the rush he’s had in WWE.
He could probably, possibly, I guess, make a really, really sweet deal, and hey, business is business.
Bill’s all about business, don’t think he’s not. But unless he’s really money-motivated, I don’t see that happening.
Guess what happens to everybody else who has been in the witness protection program for the last year-and-a-half that can’t get a phone call returned or an email responded to who are just sitting at home.
If that were to happen, yes there’s a lot of opportunity, but there are some unintended consequences that come along as well, it’s just part of it.”
Goldberg wrestled for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling from 1997 until 2001, including 1 reign as the WCW World Heavyweight Champion, before working for Vince McMahon’s WWE from 2003 to 2004, also including 1 reign as World Heavyweight Champion.
He eventually returned in 2016 and has been used a so called part-timer till his WWE contract expired in 2022. He won the Universal Championship twice and had 2 WrestleMania matches as well during this run.

• Old School WWF Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Veteran “Goldust” Dustin Rhodes (Real name: Dustin Runnels) celebrates his 54th birthday today.
While he had his World Wrestling Federation debut as Dustin Rhodes in late 1990, his biggest claim to fame is without a doubt portraying the character of Goldust, which he debuted in 1995, but was still working the gimmick as a main roster WWE Superstar until he joined AEW in 2019.
In between his WWF/E stints, Dustin worked for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling from 1991 until 1995 and from 1999 till the promotion was sold to Vince McMahon in 2001.
Him going into the WWE Hall of Fame one day after he’ll be retired, is only a question of “when”, not “if”.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY GOLDUST!
