Goldberg And Sting In Talks For Major International Event

Goldberg Spears Sting in WCW

Back in April, Goldberg put the wrestling world on notice by firing back at speculation that he had quietly retired.

Not only that, the WCW legend claimed that he had been promised a retirement match by Vince McMahon before leaving WWE, however, plans fell through. With the star now a free agent, he hinted that he could be open to running a short retirement tour or show independently, potentially outside of the United States.

Interestingly, it has now been confirmed that talks are underway for such an event in Israel. Furthermore, the event would also involve Goldberg’s former WCW rival and current AEW star Sting. In a new interview with Nick Hausman for Haus of Wrestling, veteran wrestling promoter, agent, and trainer Rick Bassman said that he has spoken with Goldberg directly, and is in talks about putting a show together.

“First of all, I’m actively in touch with Bill, I’m working on a date right now,” he began. “I don’t promote much these days but every now and then, something fun comes up, and it’s worth diving into. So working on a date in Jerusalem, Israel for September of this year. And that would involve, potentially, both Goldberg and Sting. And then on the whole ladder, you have the AEW clearance issues, of course. So that’s something that I really hope to put together.

“Now, only because I’ve been in touch actively with Bill, and then also with his agent, Barry Bloom, who is a long-time good friend. They are working on exactly what you described. But to my knowledge, it still needs to all be nailed down. That said, I would not be surprised to see Bill end up back in WWE for something massive.”

Eric Bischoff Doesn’t Want To See Goldberg Wrestle Again

While an in-ring comeback for Goldberg could be on the horizon, his former boss in WCW has claimed that he doesn’t want to see it. Speaking on his own podcast, Bischoff said that he doesn’t want to see a “lesser” version of Goldberg, adding that he wishes he “won’t do it.”
