Former WCW and WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Goldberg, was recently a guest on Booker T’s Heated Conversations podcast. During the interview, Goldberg talked about his WWE offer to return to the ring as well as embracing Vince McMahon after his heartfelt promo from Raw two weeks ago.
Goldberg on his WWE deal and if he’d be willing to continue wrestling.
“I’m treating it as [a one-shot deal], man. That’s what they offered. That’s what I accepted. If they wanted more, they would have offered more. So I took the offer when it came to a mutual decision, which I believe was mutually positive for everybody involved. Dude, I treat it was such. I have a one-match contract and I’m taking it like the last match of my career. And the minute after the match is over, I won’t bask in it. I’ll think about what’s next. If it’s anything else in the wrestling world, I’ll consider that. If not, hey, man, it’s not like I’ve been looking for something to do the last 12 years by any means.”

“I’ve had some issues with them. Everybody has. But, I can tell you, once I went through ‘Gorilla’ [position] after I delivered a promo that I didn’t think I had the ability to do, with the help of a lot of people, I gave him an embrace I never thought I’d be giving and it was one of appreciation that he gave me the opportunity to be that guy again.”
