Tony Khan Refuses To Rule Out Deal With Goldberg


Ever since returning to WWE in 2016, Goldberg has spent his career on something of a nostalgia tour.

His part-time status took away the grind of life on the road, while he still got to face some of WWE’s biggest names and squeeze in a couple of World Title runs. As a way of exorcising the demons of his original WWE stint back in 2003, it has undoubtedly been mission accomplished.

However, in more recent times his presence has been greeted with increasing hostility from fans who want to see younger stars in his place.

This was followed by a report on March 20th that Goldberg’s WWE deal has now expired, and he’s a free agent. A detail that seemingly hasn’t gone unnoticed by Tony Khan.

The AEW boss has a good track record when it comes to signing WCW legends, with Sting’s career enjoying something of an Indian summer since becoming All Elite in 2020.

Speaking in a new interview with Adrian Hernandez to promote Double or Nothing, Khan spoke of his admiration for the WWE Hall of Famer. The AEW President said that the star now being a free agent was something that “will be something else to keep an eye on for us.”

“I have a lot of respect for Bill. I think Bill Goldberg is a great professional athlete and has had a great career in pro wrestling and is a very nice person,

He’s a household name in pro wrestling, so it’s interesting to hear that he is a free agent so that’s something to follow. He’s one of the biggest names in wrestling and certainly will be something else to keep an eye on for us.

Bill is an exceptionally exciting name and one of the biggest names in the sport. It’s certainly a big thing for us to pay attention to. I would take notice of that. It’s interesting.”

When Was Goldberg’s Last Match?

Goldberg last wrestled at Elimination Chamber in February 2022 where he lost to Roman Reigns as he challenged for the Universal Championship. In fact, Goldberg has only tasted victory twice since defeating Dolph Ziggler at SummerSlam in 2019.
