WWE Hall Of Famer Claims They’re Owed A Retirement Match – “I Did A Deal With The Devil”

The Undertaker & Goldberg at WWE Super ShowDown

Goldberg hasn’t wrestled for WWE since Elimination Chamber in February 2022, but that doesn’t mean that he won’t be back.

On that occasion the WWE Hall of Famer battled Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship, however, he was unsuccessful. In fact, Goldberg has only tasted victory twice since defeating Dolph Ziggler at SummerSlam in 2019.

Speaking in a new interview with Sports Illustrated, Goldberg said that he hasn’t given up hope on having one more match. He added that WWE “owes him one” after he “did a deal with the devil.”

“You never say never, especially in wrestling, and they owe me one,” says Goldberg. “That’s all I can say. I made a deal with the devil and I did my job, and they owe me a retirement match. At the end of the day, at 56, it’s not something where I’m sitting by the phone waiting for a call. I’ve got a few ideas of how to do it on my own, possibly in Israel. So never say never.”

Paul Heyman Influential In Most Recent WWE Run

Goldberg went on to heap praise on Roman Reigns who he believes is the best in the business today, before turning his attention to Paul Heyman. The two have worked together closely since Goldberg returned to WWE in 2016, and the WWE Hall of Famer tipped his hat to Heyman for his impact on the business.

“Paul’s amazing,” says Goldberg. “It’s hard to believe that one person could have such a tremendous effect on the business, both behind the scenes and in front of the camera, but that’s Paul Heyman. He’s a gem; he really is. He knows the craft up and down, inside and out. I’m greatly appreciative to have been part of his plan.”

In December 2022 it was reported that the WWE Hall of Famer’s contract with WWE had expired and he was yet to sign a new deal.
