According to Bill Goldberg, who just admitted that he struck a pact with the devil and did his job, WWE owes him a retirement match. The former WCW World Heavyweight Champion did not elaborate on the details of that arrangement, but it is obvious that he is looking into ways to end his competitive career.
Last year, Goldberg stated that the 56-year-old’s contract was set to expire at the end of 2022. But, a recent source suggests that the man is still under contract with the organisation. Because of the length of the terms previously agreed upon, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Goldberg’s most recent and lucrative WWE contract is still in effect.
As a result, until that contract expires, the former WWE Universal Champion will not be permitted to appear anywhere. There are reportedly no guaranteed matches left on Goldberg’s current contract. He recently admitted that, if it didn’t take place in WWE, his final fight might take place in Israel.
He last competed at the 2022 Elimination Chamber
The WWE Hall of Famer did, however, make it clear that he would want to compete for the Stamford-based company in his last match. At the 2022 Elimination Chamber premium live event, Goldberg attempted to challenge Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Title but was unsuccessful. Before that bout, the part-time wrestler won a No Holds Barred Falls Count Anywhere match against Bobby Lashley at Crown Jewel in October 2021.
After leaving the business in 2004 after a brief one-year tenure, Goldberg returned to WWE in 2016. He has easily defeated opponents like Brock Lesnar, Bobby Lashley, The Fiend, Kevin Owens, and Dolph Ziggler. Since almost a year ago, the former Universal Champion has not competed in professional wrestling.
He last competed at the 2022 Elimination Chamber high-profile live event, where he lost to Roman Reigns via technical submission. It follows that someone will inevitably wonder if he will still be wrestling in 2023. At this time, it’s unclear how Goldberg’s WWE contract stands. However, he has clarified it in the past, stating that it also lasts through 2023.
