Tony Khan has never been shy about signing former WWE stars, and at a recent media scrum, he hasn’t ruled out doing it again.
At the post-ROH Supercard of Honor media scrum, Khan discussed his potential interest in signing Goldberg. The WWE Hall of Famer is currently a free agent after his WWE deal expired.
While Khan dismissed the suggestion that he could sign Goldberg for Ring of Honor, he admitted he would be an interesting acquisition for AEW.
“Goldberg in Ring of Honor is never going to happen,” Khan said emphatically. “However, I do think that [Goldberg acquisition] would be interesting for AEW. That is another great example of the differences between AEW and Ring of Honor. AEW has a bigger budget, but I try to take the production values of AEW and use some of the synergies so ROH can leverage AEW’s great production team and assets.
But, at the same time, it’s also great for AEW to develop young wrestlers, to have some of the top stars come here [to ROH] and represent that company. At the same time, there are things I would do in AEW that are more expensive. There are things in ROH that are more catered to a hardcore fanbase. I know we can bring in wrestlers that people will be excited to see, but that might not necessarily translate to a huge Neilsen rating. Although ROH has done record live gates and revenue over the past year or so, I don’t want to do something out of character [by bringing in Goldberg].”
Khan’s comments come after it was reported that there are “several companies” interested in signing the WCW legend. Goldberg hasn’t wrestled since losing out to Roman Reigns at Elimination Chamber in 2022.
