Goldberg has suggested that he could retire after his Universal Championship match against Roman Reigns tonight.
Tonight at WWE Elimination Chamber, Goldberg is set to finally challenge Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship.
The match, which is set to take place at the show in Saudi Arabia, was originally scheduled for WrestleMania 36 in April 2020, but COVID-19 meant that the match didn’t happen.
The match could be significant for quite a few reasons, particularly when it comes down to the future of Bill Goldberg.
Speaking on an Instagram video, Goldberg suggested that his match with Roman Reigns could be the last match he has as a wrestler.
Goldberg only has one match left on his current WWE deal, so unless he agrees to a new contract, it seems like this could very much be his last.
“Got a job to do Saturday and it could be my last in a WWE ring. So, tune in, watch me smash Roman like I’ve wanted to do for the past twenty years. Thank you.”
Goldberg is now 55-years-old, so it isn’t too surprising to see that he could be thinking about wrapping up his career in wrestling, which started back in 1996.
Before any potential retirement, Goldberg will be hoping to extend his career by becoming a three-time Universal Champion at Elimination Chamber tonight.
Should Goldberg win, WWE’s WrestleMania plans would be thrown into question, with it being clear that Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar is the direction for the show for the last few months.
As of right now, it’s also unclear if WWE has any WrestleMania plans for Goldberg, which also adds credence to the rumours that he could be retiring from wrestling after the show tonight.
