• WWE Offers Big Money Contracts To Goldberg & Batista, Reason Behind This Move
According to Slice Wrestling, WWE officials have offered big money contracts to former WWE Champion Batista and WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg.
WWE made this move to prevent these big names from making an appearance for All Elite Wrestling. WWE likely made this move after they saw two time WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart appear at AEW Double Or Nothing PPV to unveil the AEW World Heavyweight Championship.
Speaking of Goldberg, he’ll return to WWE next Friday to face The Undertaker in the main event of WWE Super ShowDown 2019 PPV.
