Bill Goldberg had one hell of a final run in WWE, beating Brock Lesnar, capturing the Universal Championship, and participating in one of several WrestleMania 33 main events. The night after WrestleMania, Goldberg took his leave from WWE, although stopped short of actually saying any permutation of the word “retire.”
As with most pro wrestlers, Goldberg’s current stance on another WWE return is “never say never,” although he did note in a new interview with Wrestling Inc. that while a second comeback is improbable, it’s not impossible. When asked which younger Superstars he’s like to work with if he did come back, he mentioned the two that most fans would probably really want to see the Goldmeister (man, Goldberg really needs some sort of nickname, right?) go toe-to-toe with.
(No, not AJ Styles. Stop that.)
“There’s so much young talent there that have the possibility of being the next superstar. Obviously, the guy with the big push now is Braun Strowman, but unfortunately he is hurt. Great kid and a great work ethic, obviously great character. I would be remiss that stepping in the ring with Roman Reigns wouldn’t be fun. There are a lot of guys of being worthy to be getting their ass kicked by me; at the end of the day, there are a lot of great people to leave this business with. I think the stars of the future are right on the cusp of breaking out. There is a plethora of talent ready to be the next big thing.”
We already got to see Goldberg beat up Kevin Owens and Rusev, so it would be a lot of fun to see Braun Strowman and Roman Reigns try to go toe-to-toe with the world’s most unstoppable dad. Maybe Braun just got something to do at WrestleMania 34.
… Nah, probably not.
