President of All Elite Wrestling Tony Khan recently shed a little light on the possibility of his promotion signing Bill Goldberg.
All Elite Wrestling is officially up and running. Not only that, but we now know what a certain section of its roster looks like. We obviously knew that Cody Rhodes, The Young Bucks, and Hangman Page would be a part of the proceedings, but we still got some surprises on Tuesday. The likes of PAC, Chris Jericho, and Britt Baker have all joined wrestling's newest promotion.
As excited as all of that has made us, there must still be quite a lot to come. Before Double Or Nothing rolls around there will need to be a lot more wrestlers attached to AEW. It's probably safe to assume that stars such as Kenny Omega and Jim Ross who are currently under contract elsewhere will be a part of the project. They simply have to wait until they are free agents to officially announce it.
One of the biggest and perhaps strangest rumors is that AEW is planning on using Goldberg in some way. X-Pac broached that question to the promotion's president Tony Khan on this week's X-Pac 12360. While the WWE Hall Of Famer is not currently signed to AEW, Khan admitted that it is a goal of his to work with Goldberg in some way.
"I have spent some time will Bill, I really like Bill a lot," Khan admitted, adding "I haven’t agreed to anything with Bill or anything but I like Bill a lot." There are a few interesting points about this potential partnership. First of all, Jericho is a part of AEW. He and Goldberg go back a long way, all the way to their time in WCW in fact. Secondly, Goldberg has never struck us as the biggest fan of wrestling, although that did seem to change during his most recent run with WWE.
The one thing Khan and everyone else in charge at AEW can't be accused of is having a lack of ambition. They have already shown that they need to be taken seriously via the names already signed to the brand. If they also managed to ger Goldberg on board, even in a non-wrestling role, that would undoubtedly send a shockwave through the wrestling world.
