Tony Khan Keeping An Eye On Goldberg's Free Agent Status
Tony Khan appears to be interested in Goldberg's free agent status
Could Goldberg end up in All Elite Wrestling?
Speaking to The Bet Las Vegas & The Sporting Tribune, Tony Khan revealed he would be keeping an eye on and paying attention to Goldberg's status as a free agent.
"I have a lot of respect for Bill. I think Bill Goldberg is a great professional athlete and has had a great career in pro wrestling and is a very nice person. He actually has a lot of ties around the Jacksonville community, his family is from Jacksonville and they've done so much great work in the community. There is a great hospital, the Wolfson Children's Hospital, and Bill is related to the Wolfson family. They have done so much great work in this community and that's partially how I've gotten to know Bill," Khan began.
"He's a household name in pro wrestling and certainly, that's interesting to hear that he is a free agent. It's something to follow and he's one of the biggest names in wrestling and certainly will be something else to keep an eye on for us. We have so many great wrestlers in AEW and so many exciting things happening in AEW week to week, that it's always an exciting time. Bill is an exceptionally exciting name and one of the biggest names in the sport. Certainly, it's a big thing for us to pay attention to. I would take notice of that and it is interesting."
Goldberg became a free agent at the end of 2022 after his WWE contract expired. The former WCW World Heavyweight Champion has hinted at having a retirement match in recent months, but he did not mention where that match would take place.
Unconfirmed rumours in 2019 suggested AEW were interested in signing Goldberg. Da' Man came out of retirement to wrestle a handful of matches for WWE between 2019 and February 2022.
