The potential retirement plans of WWE Hall of Famer Bill Goldberg continue to make headlines. Despite a "handshake understanding" with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon that a proper retirement match would occur following Goldberg's defeat to Roman Reigns at Crown Jewel, Goldberg recently expressed frustration over the lack of one.
Goldberg has been promoting a possible four-city retirement tour in response to this. Nevertheless, a brand-new Ringside News report suggests that WWE hears rumors of Goldberg collaborating with AEW. Tony Khan, the president of AEW, has previously mentioned that he worked with Goldberg for AEW but not ROH.
Even though this hasn't been confirmed, it's interesting to think about the possibility of Goldberg appearing in a different promotion after a successful time in WWE.
Goldberg's Retirement Plans and WWE Plot Ideas
Goldberg's claim of having a "handshake understanding" with McMahon may be valid, even though WWE officials are said not to be concerned about his retirement plans.
A further update from Ringside News noticed that the last time anybody pitched a plot for Goldberg was a retirement story that Paul Heyman needed to do. McMahon enjoyed Heyman's thought, yet it was at absolutely no point ever talked about in the future once his mid-2022 outrage fired warming up.
The Heyman concept's progress in discussions is still being determined, but it appears to have been shelved once other priorities took precedence. Wrestling fans care about Goldberg's future, even though his retirement plans and potential involvement with AEW are still unknown.
One of his generation's most revered and iconic wrestlers, Goldberg's upcoming retirement tour could be a fitting tribute to his legendary career. Regardless of what transpires next, Goldberg's contributions to the wrestling industry cannot be denied. He has influenced how wrestling is viewed worldwide, and his influence will be felt for many years.
