We reported that Ryback challenged WCW Legend Goldberg multiple times to a match, at Bill’s rumored retirement tour.

Goldberg plans to do an independent retirement tour, as WWE might not bring him back for an official retirement match.

The former 4-time World Champion wrestled his last match to date in February 2022, when he unsuccessfully challenged Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship at the WWE Elimination Chamber pay-per-view in Saudi Arabia.

Ryback recently said that a potential match with Goldberg would draw record views on Social Media.

During a recent episode of his ‘Story Time with Dutch Mantell’ podcast, Dutch claimed that fans would not want to see a match between the 2 intense powerhouses.

Here’s what Mantell said:

“I don’t think Ryback has been in the business long enough to claim dementia. I mean, I don’t know what he’s thinking.

I don’t think it could fill up a 2000 seat hall and if you put it on pay-per-view, you couldn’t charge but $10 for it or $9 and I don’t think they would get that many buys then.

Nobody wants to see Goldberg and Ryback.”

Also, AEW owner Tony Khan has repeatedly spoken very highly about the 2018 WWE Hall of Famer, so it’s still possible that Goldberg could end up in All Elite Wrestling for at least one match.

Here’s what Khan said during a media scrum interview in May:

“Yeah, I have talked to Bill. It wouldn’t be that unusual. I’ve talked to Bill when he’s not been under contract at times, and I have a good relationship with Bill.

I have had a good conversation with him, but I’ve had a lot of great conversations with Bill.

His family has done a lot of great things in Jacksonville, he’s related to the Wolfson family, who built the Wolfson Children’s Hospital in Jacksonville.

Bill is a great former football star, I worked in football, and it’s a big part of my life.

We have a lot in common and we have a lot of mutual friends, and I have a really good relationship with Bill. I like him a lot.

As to what I’ve talked to him about, I would say that’s just between the two of us. It was a good chat. I like Bill a lot, he’s a great guy.”

It’s safe to say though, that – even if he somehow manages to convince Goldberg to come in – Tony Khan most likely isn’t going to bring in Ryback, as Tony is usually afraid to sign anyone who’s controversial or is involved in any type of scandals.
