According to a new report from WrestleZone.com earlier this evening, former WCW and WWE superstar Goldberg is reportedly close to signing a legends deal with WWE. The report reads:
WZ has learned through several sources that Bill Goldberg is about to sign a Legends deal with WWE.
In addition to signing a contract with the company, a Goldberg DVD is expected to be released in the summer of 2013.
It’s unknown at this time if Goldberg will have any further involvement with the company beyond the DVD project.
As some might already know, a Goldberg DVD was listed in a WWE Home Entertainment 2013 DVD release list that was exclusively released today on WWE’s official website.
Goldberg has not been seen or affiliated with WWE since March 14, 2004 at WrestleMania XX where he would face Brock Lesnar, who was also departing from WWE at the time. The fans in attendance at Madison Square Garden would learn that both men were leaving the company and jeer both of them post-match.
In a recent interview on 4th & Pain, Goldberg stated that he would be interested in wrestling “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, The Undertaker and a rematch with Brock Lesnar.
Seeing as how Goldberg and WWE haven’t had any contact in quite a while, these news come across as quite a shock to me. I certainly didn’t expect much, but thoughts began crossing my mind after seeing Goldberg’s name on the 2013 DVD releases. As I stated this afternoon on social media, I believe that if Goldberg would return to the ring as part of this legends deal, it would be a big mistake.
In my opinion, the master of the Jackhammer is extremely overrated and never brought anything special to the table. However, if this legends deal includes special appearances, DVDs and such, I would not mind it. Make sure to take this with a grain of salt, though, as this report is not confirmed.
