WWE Hall Of Famer Goldberg’s contributions to the pro wrestling world cannot be forgotten, but he remains a free agent after his WWE contract expired. Goldberg expressed an interest in having a retirement tour but it appears Eric Bischoff believes that would be a horrible idea.

Ringside News exclusively reported that Goldberg is not happy about the status of his retirement match. It was also reported that Goldberg’s retirement match is not concern for WWE.

WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair had his own retirement last year, which featured his last-ever match during a big event. However, that does not mean Goldberg himself will get a similar retirement match.

While speaking on his 83 Weeks podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Eric Bischoff addressed Goldberg having his own retirement tour. Easy E made it clear that he believes it would be a horrible idea.


“That would be a horrible idea. There’s not generations of Bill Goldberg fans out there, there are generations of Ric Flair fans out there, Ric Flair is arguably as popular today in many respects. Bill, comparatively speaking has been in the business for five minutes when you compare him to someone like Ric Flair. I hope he gets a lot of money upfront, let’s just put it that way.

I don’t want to see a lesser version of Bill Goldberg get back into the ring and again, if he doesn’t need the money and I can’t imagine that he does, I don’t know why he’d do it. I just wish he wouldn’t do it. Here’s the other thing, you want to be remembered for being at your peak.”

Eric Bischoff doesn’t believe AEW All In needs Goldberg to be successful. Tony Khan is also paying close attention to Goldberg’s free agent status. We’ll have to see what will become of Goldberg in the end.

What’s your take on what Eric Bischoff said? Do you think AEW needs Goldberg? Sound off in the comments!
