WWE Hall Of Famer Wanted Retirement Match With Sting

Sting in WWE

A former World Champion wanted one final match with Sting.

Although he hasn’t wrestled since February 2022, Goldberg is adamant he hasn’t retired and would like one more match.

The veteran’s most recent outing came at Elimination Chamber in Saudi Arabia where he was beaten by Roman Reigns. Since then he’s held talks with AEW, although he has no desire to wrestle for the company.

During an appearance on Busted Open Radio, Goldberg said he hadn’t thought about who he’d like to face in a retirement match, but admitted that at one stage he hoped his final opponent would be Sting. However, with the legend’s own retirement, Goldberg said he didn’t deserve to be involved.

“Man, I’ll be honest with you. I have no idea. I haven’t even thought about it 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. Over the past couple of years with his retirement, but I didn’t want to take away from Sting and his whole deal. 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.”

Sting Ended Career In AEW

After previously believing his career was over, Sting signed with AEW in December 2020 and enjoyed the kind of Indian summer professional wrestling rarely allows.

The veteran’s unlikely team with Darby Allin quickly became beloved by fans and they captured tag team gold in February 2024. A month later, Sting bowed out of life in the ring with an insane victory over The Young Bucks at Revolution surrounded by his family, and broken chairs, tables, and even glass. The victory meant he retired as one-half of the AEW World Tag Team Champions.
