Goldberg was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame last year, but he never formally announced his retirement. It's logical to believe that he'll hang up the boots after a big payday and memorable match against Undertaker, but don't be surprised if Goldberg continues his illustrious career well past Super ShowDown.
According to Angel Rodriguez of Wrestling News, "the door is open for" the 52-year-old to come back "for at least one more match" following the event in Jeddah. As Rodriguez noted, Goldberg kept the possibility of wrestling again open two years ago, following his WrestleMania 33 loss to Brock Lesnar.
Last month, Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio reported that WWE brought back Goldberg because the company "feared that he would go to AEW," thus preventing them from signing "a mainstream guy."
If that's the case, then it would be very Vince McMahon-like to dish out big dollars to Goldberg in order to wrestle the odd match for him, rather than follow Chris Jericho and Jon Moxley to AEW.
Vince always relies on part-timers and legends such as Lesnar, Undertaker and John Cena to headline many of the WWE's biggest shows every year. Goldberg patched things up with the company when he returned in 2016, so if he's up for more matches, the former WCW main eventer will likely stay with WWE rather than leave for AEW.
Goldberg returned to WWE three years ago, following a 12-year hiatus from the ring. He defeated Lesnar at Survivor Series 2016 and enjoyed a short reign with the Universal Championship. Anything else he accomplishes in the ring from here on out is just gravy on what's been a remarkable career.
What This Means
Even if his matches tend to be extremely short, Goldberg remains a big money draw for the WWE. The long-time fans can never get enough of seeing legends like him in action, so until Goldberg is ready to hang up the boots, it seems like WWE will ask him to do more matches down the road.
