Goldberg Reveals WWE Departure Before AEW Dynamite

WWE Hall Of Famer Goldberg returned to WWE in 2016 after a hiatus of more than 12 years from the company. He decimated Brock Lesnar in a squash match at Survivor 2016 and then win the Universal Championship against Kevin Owens in 2017. He defended his title against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 33 in one of the show’s main events.  As revealed by his contract, Vince McMahon can only have him compete in one more match every year, so it needs to be meaningful. It was rumored to be the last match of his contract, so it may be his retirement match. Goldberg was also previously diagnosed with a bad illness as well. 



He had two matches against Bobby Lashley at WWE SummerSlam and then WWE Crown Jewel on October 21st, 2021 in Saudi Arabia respectively. Goldberg beat Lashley in the second match. Since then, the WWE Hall Of Famer has been absent from WWE television.

Goldberg squared off against Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship at the WWE Elimination Chamber event in Saudi Arabia on February 19th. The Tribal Chief ended up winning the match as well.

Wednesday’s episode of WWE’s The Bump saw a guest appearance from Goldberg, who was asked about Roman Reigns’ streak of dominance. Goldberg said that he owes Reigns a receipt for their last encounter, but feels like there are several capable people of beating “The Head Of The Table” … if it’s a fair fight.

“I don’t have any matches left on my contract, but I know one way I can take care of it. I do need to give him a receipt for that little choke-out in Saudi Arabia. But I think that there are a number of Superstars that are capable of dethroning him, most definitely. It’s got to be the right time, the right place and it has to be one-on-one. And that’s tough because nowadays with The Usos, he’s got a built-in bodyguard system working out pretty well for him. I think Brock [Lesnar] has the opportunity to do it when he comes back, but like I said, I think there are a number of people on the card, on both shows, both programs, that have the potential to beat him. But it’s got to fall into place. I mean, he’s very dominant, we’ve seen that over the past year or longer, and it’s going to take that special person to come out and dethrone him. I think, like I said, there are a couple of people that are more than capable of doing it.”
