Tony Khan Says WWE Hall Of Famer In ROH Is “Never Going To Happen”
Goldberg recently set tongues wagging when it emerged his WWE contract has indeed expired, meaning he is a free agent, however, Tony Khan says he’d never sign the star, for Ring of Honor, at least.
Goldberg has made it clear that he’s open to another match to close out his career and despite believing WWE “owes him” a retirement match, he’s considering it happening outside of that company.
Speaking at the post-Supercard of Honor media scrum, Tony Khan discussed the possibility of bringing in the star to his organisation but says the former WCW icon will never be part of Ring of Honor but AEW could be another matter:
“Goldberg in Ring of Honor is never going to happen. However, I do think that (Goldberg acquisition) would be interesting for AEW.
“That is another great example of the differences between AEW and Ring of Honor. AEW has a bigger budget, but I try to take the production values of AEW and use some of the synergies so ROH can leverage AEW’s great production team and assets.
“But, at the same time, it’s also great for AEW to develop young wrestlers, to have some of the top stars come here [to ROH] and represent that company.
“At the same time, there are things I would do in AEW that are more expensive. There are things in ROH that are more catered to a hardcore fanbase. I know we can bring in wrestlers that people will be excited to see, but that might not necessarily translate to a huge Nielsen rating.
“Although ROH has done record live gates and revenue over the past year or so, I don’t want to do something out of character (by bringing in Goldberg).”
