In an interview with Romain Mahut (transcript via to promote WWE 2K17, Bill Goldberg revealed that he’s only spoken to Triple H once in the last decade. Here are highlights:

On not working with 2K to get back with WWE: “I know this is a very big step for me in that I’ve been away [from WWE] for a long period of time and I never really ever saw myself being involved with them again, but along came my wonderful son and [it] opened up the possibility of doing something with the WWE again and I’m grateful to be in this situation. For me, my involvement in this video game is a huge honor. If it leads to something else, that’s not why I got into it, so be it, and I’ll have to cross that bridge when I come to it. But that’s not why I got involved in this by any stretch of the imagination. And like I said, you never say never.”

On a possible return to the ring: “That’s a very big issue that I’ll have to deal with in that I’m greatly appreciative of anybody and everybody that would want me to return to the ring. But, at the end of the day, it’s not just my decision. The reality is you’re hearing this straight from my mouth. I spoke to Hunter one time, I think, in the last 12 years. Never been in negotiations. Just a conversation here and there, but it never went to the next level. I think both of us were on the same page with that.”

On being open to more than one appearance: “If something like that happened, could there be a possibility of me doing more than one appearance? You never know. But, at the end of the day, there has to be one before there [are] more than one. I think in five years from now, my ability to be 275 lbs. and have traps that go from my ears, you know, to my shoulders, is going to be tough, tough, tough, I’m sure.”
