Goldberg’s career in professional wrestling isn’t over quite yet.
The former World Champion recently got people talking with comments in a new interview where he fired back at claims he retired. Although he is now a free agent following the expiration of his WWE contract at the end of 2022, the star has got his eye on getting back in the ring at least one more time.
During the interview, Goldberg said that he would be open to running his own short retirement tour. He noted that he was “learning towards” this option as a way of giving his character a “proper send-off.”
A potential destination for at least one of the stops on this world tour is Israel. The WWE Hall of Famer has previously spoken about holding his final match in the nation.
Interestingly, it appears that work could already be underway to make that happen.
A new report from Mike Johnson of PWInsider, via PWInsider Elite, noted that Goldberg met with “at least one international promotor” in Los Angeles during WrestleMania week. These talks were around the possibility of having a celebration/retirement in Israel and potentially other countries.
Johnson adds that he hasn’t heard of any talks regarding a rumoured match with MJF in AEW after speculation began on social media.
Goldberg Was Promised Retirement Match By Vince McMahon
During the same interview, Goldberg also claimed that he had been promised a retirement match by Vince McMahon. The WCW legend stated that he and McMahon had a “handshake agreement” that he’d have a proper retirement match after being defeated by Roman Reigns at Elimination Chamber in 2022.
That match against Reigns is Goldberg’s most recent in-ring outing.
