• Goldberg’s In-Ring Retirement Status

During a recent appearance on WWE’s The Bump, current WWE Universal Champion Goldberg was asked about his in-ring retirement status.

Below is what the WWE Hall of Famer said:

“I remember ragging on Ric Flair for being 42 and being in the ring and here I am 11 years his senior when I made the comment and I’m still doing it.

Just like I mentioned to someone yesterday saying: ‘Hey when are you gonna hang it up?’ The fact is that if I get a phone call [from WWE] and I can still do what I did back in the day and bring it to at least an acceptable level then I’m not gonna say no.

I’m a defensive lineman. I’m a meathead by trade so if you give me, you know a challenge I’m gonna take it.

Unfortunately by being given a short period of time you jeopardize everything. By being a power wrestler and being 53 years old and still being able to get in shape enough to look myself in the mirror without throwing up and to go out there and performing to an acceptable level it’s tough, it really is.

There are a lot of things I’ve done in my life that have lobotomized me in the process and this is no different.”
