Bill Goldberg May Have Just Retired From WWE After Raw

With the WWE Universe still reeling from the probable retirement of the legendary Undertaker after WrestleMania 33, the post-Mania Raw crowd got an unexpected second apparent retirement: Bill Goldberg.

Goldberg addressed the rowdy Orlando crowd on WWE Network after Raw went off the air, discussing his Universal Championship loss to Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania and the hows and whys of his pro wrestling career. He explained that now he’s solely focused on his family, and delivered a touching speech that, without hyperbole, was the best promo of his career.

WWE shared the following clip on Twitter:

“You can boo me, or you can cheer me, but the fact is that little boy is the reason my heart still beats.”

That’s a hell of a quote. While this may be the final in-ring moment of the WCW legend and surefire future WWE Hall of Famer’s career, Goldberg noted that he’s, “one of the biggest, baddest son of a bitches on the planet,” adding that, “you never know what, or who’s next.”

If this is the end of Goldberg’s career, he couldn’t have gone out much better than a Universal Championship run, having a marquee match at one of the biggest WrestleManias ever and making up for that WrestleMania XX match that was previously the final bout of his career.

Here’s to whatever’s next.
