Goldberg has yet to make a return to WWE on the road to WrestleMania. He was somewhat expected, and there is still time for him to pop up. It hasn’t been announced, but he is contracted for one more match this year.
During Insight with Chris Van Vliet, Eric Bischoff said that Goldberg isn’t still wrestling because he loves it. He’s only in it for those huge checks.
“Goldberg is doing it for the money, come on. This is not love of the business or love to get out there and perform. In my opinion, sorry Bill you and I aren’t close friends but we are friends. And if what I am saying Bill offends you then I apologise because I don’t mean it to but come on dude, do you think he’s doing it for the fun or do you think he’s doing it for the money?
Easy E said that Goldberg’s mindset isn’t a bad thing. He’s making money and it’s hard to hate on that. It makes sense, but Goldberg’s true motivation still isn’t for the love of wrestling.
It’s smart it’s not a bad thing! I’m not putting it down. If I had the ability at Bill’s age, and look the way Bill did and someone gave me a 7 figure cheque to work 5 minutes come on! Lets be honest with ourselves and not bust anybody’s balls over this. Anyone would do it, we dream about that opportunity.”
Goldberg’s astounding undefeated streak in WCW is a thing of the past. Drew McIntyre was able to topple the former champion and we haven’t seen Goldberg since. That doesn’t mean we’ve seen the last of him as long as Vince McMahon’s checks continue to clear.
