All Elite Wrestling (AEW) has made headlines by signing several former high-profile WWE talents, and now it seems that Bill Goldberg might be the latest big name to consider making the switch. The 56-year-old wrestling legend has recently been in the spotlight after revealing that WWE did not provide him with the promised retirement match he expected.
Unhappy with this development, Goldberg has made it clear that he has no intentions of ending his in-ring career. As a free agent, the former Universal Champion's potential signing with AEW has been the subject of online speculation for the past few weeks.
According to Ringside News, WWE knows that Goldberg could ink a deal with All Elite Wrestling. At this time, Triple H's creative team has reportedly not discussed any plans for Goldberg's return, as it is not a priority.
Goldberg's AEW Move and Tour
Additionally, WWE is aware that Goldberg could choose to promote his retirement tour, as noted in the RingSide News report: "We were also told that word is going around WWE that Goldberg might be going to AEW, and the story is also known that he might do his self-promoted retirement tour." In a recent interview, the Hall of Famer expressed his openness to "anything and everything" following the end of his WWE tenure.
While Goldberg is eager for a fitting send-off for his character, he has kept the door open to various possibilities, including promoting his four-city tour leading up to his final match. Addressing the rumors linking him to AEW, the former World Heavyweight Champion had this to say about his immediate future: "And, now, until that happens, man, I don't believe I'm hanging them up, you know.
So, anything and everything is an option. And, as I say, I'm very much leaning towards promoting it and doing a four-city world tour. So, let the rumor mill start up after that." With WWE aware of the situation and Goldberg keeping his options open, the wrestling world eagerly awaits the next move from the three-time World Champion.
