Goldberg is undoubtedly one of the biggest names in pro wrestling history. He held a 173-match undefeated streak at WCW that lasted nearly a year. Over at WWE, he won the Universal Championship twice, though he could not hold it for long both times.
In a recent interview with The Pop Culture Show, Goldberg talked about where he stands in terms of his contract with WWE.
Goldberg on his contract with WWE
The former Universal Champion said that his commitment with WWE is “still going strong” with two years still remaining in the current contract. He referred to “a lot of cool things” that fans can expect in the near future.
“I am contracted with the WWE for the next two years through 2022, ’23. I’ve got two matches per year. I’ve exhausted my limit this year quite early on April the fifth with WrestleMania under these really weird circumstances. But I’ve got a couple other extremely interesting projects right on the cusp, but as you guys know in the entertainment business right now everything’s on hold unless it’s a production of 10 or under pretty much.”
Goldberg did not think he had a chance at this at his age, given how much he made fun of Ric Flair for continuing to wrestle in his forties.
“We got a lot of cool things that people are going to find out about pretty soon. My WWE commitment is still going strong. At 53, I never would’ve imagined especially after making fun of Flair when he was doing it in his early 40s.”
Goldberg has already completed his two stipulated appearances in a year. The first one was at WWE Super ShowDown in February, where he won his second WWE Universal Championship defeating Bray Wyatt’s The Fiend. The second time was to lose the belt to Braun Strowman at WrestleMania 36.
Roman Reigns was originally going to challenge Goldberg for the Title, but the COVID-19 pandemic interfered with those plans.
The two opponents Goldberg faced this year are set to lock horns at SummerSlam 2020 for the WWE Universal Championship.
