All Elite Wrestling President Tony Khan is “obviously” open to the prospect of Bill Goldberg wrestling for AEW, under the right circumstances. During an appearance on the X-Pac 1-2-360 podcast, Khan said that he knows Goldberg and hyped up his mainstream appeal.
“I have spent some time will Bill, I really like Bill a lot and he’s one of the greatest drawing cards ever in the business, he’s a huge star, a household name … and yeah, if the situation was right, obviously. I haven’t agreed to anything with Bill or anything but I like Bill a lot.”
After 12 years away from wrestling, Goldberg returned to the ring at WWE Survivor Series back in 2016. He flattened Brock Lesnar in less than two minutes, reigniting a rivalry that culminated at WrestleMania 33 and a WWE Hall of Fame induction.
At 52-years-old, the prospect of Goldberg having another run seems unlikely. That said, The Undertaker is 53 and wrestled several times this year. Chris Jericho, AEW’s biggest signing to date, isn’t much younger at 48. Goldberg’s agent is Barry Bloom has been working on AEW behind the scenes since its inception.
With AEW looking to make some noise, secure a TV deal and sell out the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas (Capacity: 16,800), Goldberg could be another piece of the puzzle that helps them achieve these goals.
Do you think Goldberg could be an asset to AEW, even if it’s for one special attraction match?
