WWE Hall Of Famer Goldberg Wants One Last Match

Bill Goldberg WWE

Goldberg has not competed in a wrestling ring since losing to Roman Reigns at WWE Elimination Chamber in 2022 but he’s still hoping to put a bow on his career.

Goldberg became an overnight sensation in WCW in the late nineties before going on to have two spells in WWE which were split by 12 years where he was not part of the business at all.

Speaking on Busted Open Radio, Goldberg was asked if he wanted to have one final match before calling it a day and he revealed he would but needs to get some work done on his body first:

Oh, man, I’d love to—100%. I have to get my torn rotator cuff taken care of finally because, yeah, we all live with these injuries, dude, right? And I’ll come out and say it when I came back with Brock [Lesnar], and nobody ever knew this. I came back with Brock that first night, and in Denver, I blew my rotator cuff completely. And I never told anybody about it. And I kept working through it. And you know, because you have this sparing…your work sparingly once or twice a year, right? So I can crescendo and get as strong as I can.

I ain’t doing sh*t till I get that done, then that’s hopefully coming up. You know, I’m doing stem cells here soon, and then I’m going to see if surgeries needed. But yeah, man, I’d love to have one more match. You know how it is. Vince [McMahon] and I spoke about it, and he gave me his word. But all that stuff happened, and, hey, man, I don’t hold grudges. Vince gave me so many opportunities, man. I’ll be forever grateful. But yeah, I would absolutely love to have that final match. I would. Am I good not having it? Yeah, I’m fine with it. But it’d be neat to have one.

As far as whether Goldberg would want to have his final match in WWE or even AEW, the star noted he thinks he could promote it himself:

It wouldn’t have to be with anyone. I could do it myself and accomplish what I wanted to accomplish, right? I could do the promotion myself. Overseas, do it in Israel, do it in India, do it somewhere, do it in Japan. Maybe do one in the States? I don’t know. I’ve thought about a lot of things, but you know, Bully [Ray], you have seen me. I put my life on hold for the last 18 years with my son.

Everybody’s like, ‘Why do you lose so much weight?’ Well, I’ve lost so much weight because every night at the dinner table, when there’s four steaks, I give him three, and I take one, right? My life has completely been predicated upon getting my son in a situation to where the next part of his life. Hopefully, he’s prepared for it. And now my son has gone, and then he’s gone for two to three weeks. And I’ve kind of turned back into me a little bit. You know, good, bad, or indifferent.

Mainly good because it’s making me fill my time with stuff not worrying about what the hell my son’s doing, whether he needs me or not, and what’s going on, so I’m picking Muay Thai up again. I’m training again. I’m eating again. I’m getting taken care of myself. I’m doing things that I haven’t done for so long, man, that you never know. You’d never say never. As wrestlers, we’d never retire…until you’re dead.

Goldberg Has No Idea Who Final Opponent Would Be

As far as who Goldberg might face in one last match, he says he’s not given that a second’s thought but claims he didn’t want to take any shine of Sting’s retirement by getting involved with that:

Man, I’ll be honest with you. I have no idea. I haven’t even thought about it. Not for two seconds. And that’s a fully 100% transparent answer. I have no idea. I was trying to shuffle it to where it was Sting right over the past couple of years of his retirement, but I didn’t want to take away from Sting in his whole deal, right? I have no business being anywhere near that. Because I don’t deserve to be, it’s all about him. And therefore, he wasn’t an option because of that.

Goldberg previously claimed AEW was “too cheesy” for him to work for while Tony Khan revealed the WWE Hall of Famer wanted to work in the promotion.
