WWE Hall of Famer's Choice Words for Mr. McMahon

Goldberg blasts Vince McMahon in a recent interview, showing just how upset Goldberg still is about what he calls a broken promise by the former WWE kingpin. If you've been keeping up with WrestleLamia's news videos (check out our latest edition below), you know that Goldberg claims he was promised a retirement match in the WWE. However, the WWE failed to deliver, making for an angry Bill Goldberg. Now, Goldberg is discussing what he was promised and how he wanted to be involved with Sting's upcoming retirement match.

The WWE Hall of Famer recently discussed the situation during an appearance on the Steve and Captain Evil show. According to Goldberg, Vince asked him to wrestle Roman Reigns at 2022's Elimination Chamber. The problem was that "Dollar Bill" was still recovering from COVID-19. As Goldberg tells it:

"I owe him everything, until we went to Saudi Arabia and he asked me to put Roman Reigns over. I had COVID, and I remember calling him from my house and said, ‚ÄėListen, here‚Äôs the deal. I‚Äôll do it if you give me a retirement match.'‚ÄĚ

"Big Bad" Bill worked the match, even going so far as to allow Roman Reigns to win with the Guillotine Choke. Unfortunately, Goldberg didn't get his retirement match and the WWE let his contract expire.

Goldberg had some choice words for Vinnie Mac:

‚ÄúVince is a piece of s**t as far as I‚Äôm concerned.‚ÄĚ

Ringside News tweeted more information about Goldberg and the WWE:

If Goldberg's story is accurate, it's not a big surprise. After all, the WWE is notorious for doing whatever it feels like and loyalty always seems to be a one-way street when it comes to the WWE, with wrestlers giving all and the WWE happily taking all. Naturally, we haven't heard the WWE's take on things and company officials may feel no need to weigh in.

Goldberg Talks Working Retirement Match with Sting

Goldberg's quest for a fitting retirement match led to speculation he might compete at AEW's All In event at Wembley Stadium last summer. While that never happened, rumors continue that Goldberg is considering a run in AEW.

During his appearance on the Steve and Captain Evil show, the man who made the phrase "Who's next" synonymous with himself discussed his ideal opponent for his retirement match: Sting. Goldberg explained his efforts to be part of Sting's upcoming retirement match at AEW's Revolution pay-per-view:

‚ÄúSting is the reason why I broke into the business. I tried to be part of his retirement match. I never looked at wrestling with much respect, but after watching him from afar, I realized I had the ability to do it.‚ÄĚ

Goldberg added:

‚ÄúHe was not only a performer. He had self-respect and commanded respect. He‚Äôs one of the best human beings on the planet. I just tried to grab it and run with it and make him proud. I had the best time of my life in the ring with Sting.‚ÄĚ

H/T Ringside News

A Sting vs Goldberg match would be big in terms of name value. However, AEW may feel that it's better to use Goldberg on another occasion. It's also unknown what Sting's wishes are for his final match.

For now, fans must wait to see whether Goldberg wrestles in AEW. There was also talk of Goldberg working a retirement match through a tour on the independent scene. AEW has its second All In show scheduled for this summer in London, and a Goldberg retirement match would be a good addition to the show.

Who would you like to see Bill Goldberg wrestle if he works a retirement match? Where should the match take place?
