Does Bill Goldberg Have a Future in the WWE?

(Bill Goldberg, WWE star and actor)

Former WCW and WWE Champion, Bill Goldberg was a mainstay in the main event picture for WCW in the late 1990’s. WCW pushed him as being “unbeatable” and gave him a lengthy winning streak. Then when the WWE bought the brand, his prestige didn’t diminish but it was apparaent really quick that he wouldn’t “squash” any of the WWE’s cornerstone wrestlers.

However he only was able to enjoy a tenure of a year, although in that year he defeated The Rock (who was ready to heavily transition into more of an acting role), then he enjoyed a long feud with Triple H where he was actually able to go over The Game. At the end of the year fans knew he was on his way out as well as his counter part at Wrestlemania, Brock Lesnar. The fans heavily “boo’d” the match and Goldberg rode off into the sunset.

Sports Illustrated just interviewed Bill and the pair went over a variety of topics, including if he will come back to the WWE. Here is what he responded with:

“I had a conversation with Paul [Levesque] recently and I said, ‘Listen, I’m willing to put everything aside. If you guys want to sit down and make some money and have some fun, then let’s do it. My son wants to see me wrestle, and I’m willing to put all the bad feelings aside. If you guys want to move forward and do this thing the right way, then let’s talk.’ And that’s the way it ended. There’s nothing there. Truthfully, I don’t even think they want me to come, period. I’m just not one of them. The fact that I’m not far outweighs the financial gain, which they truly may not even believe is there. And I’m good with that. I’m absolutely fine with that.”

He added: “I don’t have a time limit and age is just a number for me. If the Hall of Fame presents itself, then I’ll do it in a heartbeat. But it’s not something where I sit here and go, ‘Man, I wish the WWE would induct me in the Hall of Fame.’ I don’t think about what I would say in my speech or who would induct me. I don’t think about that, by no stretch of the imagination.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
