Goldberg discusses potential return to WWE on ESPN SportsCenter

Former World Heavyweight champion Bill Goldberg appeared on ESPN’s SportsCenter last night during the Off The Top Rope segment with Jonathan Coachman to talk about the WWE 2K17 video game as well as a potential return to the ring.

Goldberg said it’s a big decision and he is going to talk to his family to figure out what he wants to do. He expressed his appreciation of all the fans that supported him throughout his career both in WCW and WWE.

Goldberg, now 49 years old, said that he’s not like Ric Flair where Flair, at 49, would still go out and do his character. “I don’t know what the odds are,” he said, referring to himself being nearly 50 and doing what Goldberg used to do back in the day. “But if anyone can do it, it would be me.”

The popular Superstar teased that he would need until the end of the year to decide, mentioning that his 10-year-old boy and his wife never saw him wrestle so it’s a big motivation for him to consider returning inside a WWE ring.

Goldberg added that since he left in 2004 he did not have a word with Vince McMahon. “At the end of the day, I’m sure that he and I will speak sometime soon. I owe him a thankful handshake for giving me the ability to do this,” he said.

Asked who would be on the top of his list if he decides to return, the answer was pretty much what everyone already knows. “I would be remiss in saying I don’t owe Brock Lesnar a rematch. I was able to prosper and have my hand raised at the first meeting, and I think if I ever came back, that’d be the match. I would have to work my ass off to get ready for him, but you never say never. I’ve said it for 12 years.”

Goldberg described Brock as “not even a human being” and as a “superhero alien guy” for his physique, strength, and agility. “But I don’t know, man, I beat him once.”
