Eric Bischoff Calls A Goldberg Retirement Tour A "Horrible Idea"
Eric Bischoff isn't a fan of a potential Goldberg retirement tour
After officially leaving WWE after making his return to the company back in 2016, Goldberg is now a free agent once again, and after not receiving an alleged promised retirement match in the company, the multi-time world champion has toyed with the idea of a retirement tour.
Not everyone is entirely on board with this pitch though - one of which being Eric Bischoff, who shut the idea down immediately as a bad one. On his 83 Weeks podcast, Bischoff gave his view on a prospective Goldberg retirement tour.
"There's not generations of Bill Goldberg fans out there, there are generations of Ric Flair fans out there, Ric Flair is arguably as popular today in many respects. Bill, comparatively speaking has been in the business for five minutes when you compare him to someone like Ric Flair. I hope he gets a lot of money upfront, let's just put it that way.
"I don't want to see a lesser version of Bill Goldberg get back into the ring and again, if he doesn't need the money and I can't imagine that he does, I don't know why he'd do it, I just wish he wouldn't do it. Here's the other thing, you want to be remembered for being at your peak."
Bischoff would call it a “horrible idea” just a week or so after daring Tony Khan to book Goldberg vs. CM Punk for the upcoming AEW All In show at Wembley Stadium on August 27.
