Goldberg’s situation in pro wrestling is grabbing tons of attention right now, because the WWE Hall of Famer is trying to finish up his career. Only time will tell who books that retirement situation for Goldberg, but he’s made a ton of money along the way.

Goldberg’s deal with WWE is over, and his final match was against Roman Reigns. That being said, his contract wasn’t up right after his final match, because he still had several months left on his WWE deal. At this time, there are no creative plans to bring him back.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that Goldberg commanded a ridiculous paycheck to work his matches in Saudi Arabia. He reportedly raked in $2 million to make the trip and work a match.

“Goldberg made so much money for so few matches in his WWE deal, reportedly $2 million for each of his Saudi Arabia matches, and for AEW, that kind of money per match simply isn’t cost-effective.”


Ringside News exclusively reported that WWE has no interest in booking Goldberg’s final run. Also, AEW is focusing on Sting’s last run in pro wrestling. Goldberg isn’t without interested parties to help him pull off this retirement, because he also met with people to get that done during WrestleMania week.

We’ll have to see how much Goldberg makes from his retirement match. There is a promoter in Israel who is interested in hosting it.

What’s your take on Goldberg’s retirement? Should he give it one more run before hanging up his boots? Sound off in the comments!
