Goldberg last competed at the 2022 Elimination Chamber PLE, where he lost to Roman Reigns. Last month, WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg stated during an interview with Sports Illustrated that WWE owes him a retirement match.
Goldberg is currently not under contract with WWE. It was previously reported that his deal expired in late December. The two sides didn’t come to negotiate a new deal. Therefore, AEW President Tony Khan expressed his interest in signing the former Universal Champion.
In an interview with 93.7 The Ticket, Goldberg was asked about his pro wrestling future. WWE Hall of Famer stated that Vince McMahon’s regime promised him a proper retirement match. However, the company failed to deliver on that promise.
“Vince McMahon and I had a handshake understanding that after the Roman Reigns match that I would have a proper retirement match. And that hasn’t come to fruition through them and therefore…nobody puts a stamp on my career. Nobody tells me when I’m done. Period. End of story. When somebody tells me that, I kind of like to fight against it. I like to do things my own way. I go out my own way, and I certainly don’t go out under Roman Reigns three weeks after I have covid and agreed to do a match.
If I go on a world tour and promote it myself, that’s a possibility. Hey, I’m a businessman, and I’m fortunately, you know, in the position I firmly believe to where I can still make it happen. At the end of the day, like I said, I do believe that my character deserves a proper send-off. Until that happens man, I don’t believe I’m hanging them up, you know. Anything and everything is an option.”H/T WrestlingNews.co
