Goldberg Claims Vince McMahon Screwed Him On WWE Retirement Match

Goldberg Vince McMahon

WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg doesn’t have much good to say about Vince McMahon as he claims McMahon went back on a deal for a retirement match.

The last time Goldberg competed in a WWE ring was way back in February 2022 at Elimination Chamber in Saudi Arabia where he lost to Roman Reigns. But according to the man himself, Goldberg only agreed to that match on one condition – one that was never met.

Speaking on Steven & Captain Evil, Goldberg was asked for his thoughts on Vince McMahon and it’s safe to say he’s not a fan of him after McMahon went back on a deal for a retirement match:

Vince is like Dana White. He’s the big boss and he makes everything happen, and in all honesty, he gave me the opportunity to put my wife and son on the front row and gave me the ability to perform again in front of them. So, I owe him everything, until we went to Saudi Arabia and he asked me to put Roman Reigns over, and I had COVID. I remember calling him from my house and said, ‘Listen, here is the deal. I’ll do it if you give me a retirement match.’

I did what he asked. As a performer, I was 56 years old. As a human being, you’re conscientious about how you look in a bathing suit, especially two months prior to being in that bathing suit, you couldn’t work out because you had COVID. I put myself in a horribly sh*tty situation to get what I wanted to, but to satiate him and give him what he wanted. Problem is, he never held up his bargain. Vince is a piece of sh*t as far as I’m concerned.

Vince McMahon No Longer In Charge In WWE

Vince McMahon is no longer in charge of the day-to-day running of WWE with the wrestling operations being fully overseen by Triple H. There is believed to be little love lost between Goldberg and Triple H meaning a retirement match under The Game’s watch is less than likely.

Goldberg was rumoured for a retirement tour outside of WWE earlier in 2023 but so far no such tour has materialised.
