• Update On Goldberg & Batista’s Status With All Elite Wrestling
According to the No Holds Barred podcast, All Elite Wrestling officials have had discussions with former WWE Champion Batista and WWE Hall Of Famer Goldberg regarding signing with AEW.
We noted last month that Slice Wrestling reported talks are going good between AEW & Goldberg and it was noted that Goldberg would most likely look for a Brock Lesnar type deal (only with more appearances).
One important thing that was noted in this report is that AEW’s TV deal is heavily dependent on Goldberg’s signing.
Speaking of AEW’s TV deal, Chris Jericho had the following to say about it on Busted Open Radio:
“Yes, the television deals are being talked about. Nothing is set in stone, but the couple I know about are ones where people would go, ‘This is the real deal.’”
As we noted before, ProWrestlingSheet reported that All Elite Wrestling is interested in Batista and have made an offer to “The Animal”.
It was also noted that Batista is entertaining AEW’s offer and is deciding between WWE & AEW.
To fuel speculation regarding move to AEW, Batista met with AEW Superstar Chris Jericho.
Below is what Jericho posted about meeting Batista:
“Killer hang with my bro @davebautista today! Had a great chat and some amazing @4riverssmokehouse! #AnimalAndGOAT #alphahouse #lionsden”
