On March 20th it was reported that Goldberg is a free agent after his deal with WWE expired.
The WWE Hall of Famer had been with the company since 2016 when he returned after 12 years away. During this most recent WWE run, Goldberg worked a heavily reduced schedule, never wrestling on regular television or house shows. In fact, he only wrestled 12 matches after making his high-profile comeback.
Despite this, he wrestled a number of WWE’s biggest stars including Brock Lesnar, Roman Reigns, and Bray Wyatt, while winning the Universal Championship twice.
But with his time with the company now over, the question becomes, in the words of the man himself, “Who’s next?”
A follow-up report from Fightful Select has reiterated that Goldberg’s free agency isn’t anything new, as his WWE deal expired on January 1st. Furthermore, there are “several companies” interested in working with the WCW legend, including one in Isreal. Goldberg has previously mentioned potentially heading to Isreal for a retirement match.
Goldberg To AEW?
Having already revitalised the career of one WCW legend when it was believed they were done in Sting, Tony Khan hinted that he would be open to trying to repeat the trick with Goldberg.
As news of his free agency began to circulate, the AEW boss was asked about the WWE Hall of Famer. While Khan didn’t commit to saying that would be trying to work with the star, he did speak of his admiration for him, describing the situation as something he will be keeping an eye on.
