We reported that WCW Legend Bill Goldberg plans to do an independent retirement tour, as WWE might not bring him back for an official retirement match and AEW paying him enough to agree to a contract seems unlikely at this point.

Current RAW Superstar Matt Riddle took to Twitter and posted a photo that shows him and Goldberg together backstage at WWE SummerSlam 2019 and added the following in his Tweet:


Goldberg and Riddle had real-life heat in the past, after the former Universal Champion took offense in Riddle trolling and provoking him online, but they have since made their peace and are getting along fine nowadays.

Will WWE bring Bill back for a match against Randy Orton’s former RK-Bro Tag Team partner? We’ll keep you updated on the situation.

Speaking of Goldberg, we also reported that former WWE Intercontinental Champion Ryback is constantly challenging the legend to a match these days and doesn’t get tired of repeating it.

Here’s what The Big Guy said on the ‘Roundtable Wrestling’ podcast:

“Ultimately that will be up to him. The next step. My first step was creating buzz and just seeing where everything is at with that. You got people that are for it, and you got people that are against it, and then they start arguing. That’s a really good thing with that. 

The next step that has to take place is to get in contact with Bill and have a conversation. Ultimately, that’s going to be his choice.

I can tell you personally, for this to be appealing to me, I want it to be on the biggest platform that it could be on.

I want for me, for everything I got going on and everything with the WWE that has happened, for me, getting media for this.

TV appearances, media appearances, so I can tell my story and tell this story properly, I think that’s hard to do. You heard the talk of doing it in Israel on pay-per-view.

I think that’s fine. I understand that, and I’m not against that, but I do think it’s better served for him.

I think it would be better done in AEW All In if it’s something that could be done and worked out.”

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 was used as a special attraction / part-timer until his WWE contract expired in 2022.

The WCW Legend 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.

During an April 2023 interview with ‘93.7 The Ticket’, Goldberg said the following about his situation with WWE & Vince McMahon:

“Vince McMahon and I had a handshake understanding that after the Roman Reigns match I would have a proper retirement match. And that hasn’t come to fruition through them.

So, therefore… nobody puts a stamp on my career. Nobody tells me when I’m done, period. When somebody tells me that, I kinda like to fight against it.

I like to do things my own way and I go out my own way. And I certainly don’t go out under Roman Reigns, you know, three weeks after I’ve had COVID and agreed to a match.”
