It’s been over 10 years since former WCW and WWE Champion Goldberg has wrestled a match on a major stage, but in recent months, Goldberg has expressed his interest in getting back into the ring for one more match so his son can see him wrestle. Nobody knows exactly where Goldberg will be having his next and possibly last match, but he doesn’t plan on it taking place under the banner of any established wrestling organization.
Eric Bischoff — who was Goldberg’s boss in WCW — has said that he likes Goldberg as a person, but he doesn’t like doing business with him, which is a thought that is echoed by almost everyone who has ever worked with Goldberg, and that’s likely the reason he wants to work for himself whenever Goldberg decides to wrestle again.
Nobody knows exactly what kind of match Goldberg will have when he returns. Will it be a traditional Goldberg squash match? Will it be a back and forth brawl? Also, who will be his opponent? Well, at least one of those questions may have been answered, because on Sunday, not only did Goldberg return to the ring, but he speared fellow wrestling legend and former WCW Champion Scott Steiner at the Legends of Wrestling event at Citi Field in New York.
Goldberg and Steiner haven’t had a one-on-one match with each other in nearly 15 years, but it does seem that Steiner is going to be the guy that Goldberg faces when he returns to the ring, as Goldberg toldWrestling Inc that he would be very interested in stepping into the ring with “Big Poppa Pump.”
“Um, yeah maybe [I’d wrestle Scott Steiner.] I loved working with him, he’s awesome. I love everything he does with the ‘Big Poppa Pump’ deal, it’s great.”
Of course, wrestling fans who want to see Goldberg step back into the ring, want to see him do it on the biggest stage, and that’s WWE. But due to his unpleasant experience working for WWE from 2003 to 2004, Goldberg says that it’s going to take a lot of money for a promotion to get him to agree to a deal for one more match.
“[It would take] a hell of a lot of money. One hell of a sit-down meeting with me about the complete details of how they plan on doing it. With the option on the table of me doing it myself, that’s pretty nice.”
With WWE trying to make next year’s WrestleMania the biggest of all-time by wrangling the biggest names in the industry, it’s not out of the realm of possibility that they’ll offer Goldberg a big money deal to come back and wrestle in front of 100,000 people at AT&T Stadium in Dallas.
