Report: Sting Involved In Talks Over Goldberg Retirement Show
Could Sting appear on a Goldberg retirement show?
The future of Bill Goldberg has been the subject of some debate recently, with the WCW legend’s name floated for everything from a lucrative retirement tour, to a WWE return, and even an outlandish switch to AEW.
Out of all the suggested scenarios for ‘Da Man’, it seems that a small retirement tour has the most momentum behind it, with reports of Goldberg wrestling in Israel gathering pace. Whilst developments are still believed to be in the early stages, it’s been suggested that fellow WCW legend Sting could be involved with Goldberg’s retirement, with wrestling promoter Rick Bassman saying the following to Haus of Wrestling:
“First of all, I’m actively in touch with Bill, I’m working on a date right now,” Bassman began. “I don’t promote much these days but every now and then, something fun comes up, and it’s worth diving into. So working on a date in Jerusalem, Israel for September of this year. And that would involve, potentially, both Goldberg and Sting. And then on the whole ladder, you have the AEW clearance issues, of course. So that’s something that I really hope to put together.
“Now, only because I’ve been in touch actively with Bill, and then also with his agent, Barry Bloom, who is a longtime good friend. They are working on exactly what you described. But to my knowledge, it still needs to all be nailed down. That said, I would not be surprised to see Bill end up back in WWE for something massive.”
Sting has also revealed plans to retire this year after the expiration of his AEW deal.
