With the official launch of AEW (All Elite Wrestling), there has been a ton of speculation as to who the promotion will be able to sign to contracts. Whether it be a logical and realistic signing to some far-reaching ideas such as CM Punk, the sky’s the limit for the company in the eyes of the fans.
All Elite Wrestling President Tony Khan recently made an appearance Sean “X-Pac” Waltman’s podcast where he talked about a wide range of topics including rumors about WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg potentially signing a deal with the company.
“I have spent some time with Bill, I really like Bill, a lot, and he’s one of the greatest drawing cards ever in the business. He’s a huge star, a household name, and yeah, obviously, I really like Bill, we’ve bonded a lot, because both of us are passionate about football. It’s fun hanging out with Bill. if the situation was right, obviously. Bill in Wrestlemania less than two years ago was defending the WWE Championship, Bill was a good star, and a great attraction. I haven’t agreed to anything with Bill, but I like him a lot. He’s awesome.”
Goldberg was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame last year during WrestleMania 34 weekend and was last seen on WWE television the night after Mania on Raw. His last match came when he lost the WWE Universal Title to Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 33 in 2017 in Orlando, Florida.
