After losing his Universal Championship to Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 33, Goldberg appeared on the following episode of Monday Night Raw. There, he thanked the fans for welcoming him back and embraced his son. He has not been seen on WWE programming since, and he’s presumably done wrestling for the company.
Not so fast, cautions Goldberg. The wrestling legend did an interview with Chris Van Vilet of WSVN-TV Entertainment, and was asked about the possibility of returning to the WWE:
“You never know. You really don’t. I ain’t dead yet and I ain’t even close. So as long as I’ve got two arms and two legs and I can still do my thing, never say never.”
Goldberg also noted that his original contract with the WWE was to only have him fight Lesnar at Survivor Series, and that he was supposed to lose to The Beast. Goldberg then added “they came to the conclusion that it might be good for me to stick around for a little while for a couple of reasons and the rest is kind of history.”

The former face of WCW had a forgettable first run with the WWE, ending in an awful match vs. Lesnar at WrestleMania XX – which saw the fans heavily boo and savagely chant the two stars out of the company.
But Goldberg’s latest run with the WWE was much more successful, as he shockingly conquered the beast and dethroned Kevin Owens as the Universal Champion. Goldberg appeared to have made peace with the company, and fulfilled the goal of wrestling in front of his young son, Gage.
It’s very much in doubt about Goldberg wrestling again for the WWE. He’s now 51 years of age, and only a handful of superstars have been asked to wrestle into their mid-50s by Vince McMahon in recent years.
Nonetheless, you can never rule out a return for Goldberg – as he said. He remains in prime shape and doesn’t look ready to hang up the boots for good.
