We reported that WCW Legend Bill Goldberg is looking to do a retirement tour, before finally hanging up his boots for good, and he expected Vince McMahon to keep his promise about a proper send-off, that hasn’t taken place yet, as he lost his last WWE match to Roman Reigns via technical submission in just 6 minutes.
On a recent episode of his weekly ’83 Weeks’ podcast, former WCW President Eric Bischoff stated that he doesn’t feel like Goldberg would actually need to wrestle yet another match at his age.
Here’s what the 2021 WWE Hall of Famer said:
“That would be a horrible idea. There’s not generations of Bill Goldberg fans out there, there are generations of Ric Flair fans out there, Ric Flair is arguably as popular today in many respects.
Bill, comparatively speaking, has been in the business for 5 minutes when you compare him to someone like Ric Flair. I hope he gets a lot of money upfront, let’s just put it that way.
I don’t want to see a lesser version of Bill Goldberg get back into the ring and again, if he doesn’t need the money and I can’t imagine that he does, I don’t know why he’d do it.
I just wish he wouldn’t do it. Here’s the other thing, you want to be remembered for being at your peak.”
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 special attraction / part-timer until his WWE contract expired in 2022.
