“Right After Wrestling” intervied former WCW Champion Bill Goldberg. Highlights include:
TNA has NOT contacted Bill looking to sign him since a lunch meeting with Dixie Carter 4 years ago
Being 43 years old with a family and his new projects, and whether or not he even has time to wrestle
Goldberg: “Getting out of football was more difficult than getting out of wrestling”
Despite owning a prominent MMA gym and the likes of Herschel Walker giving it a try, he has no thoughts of competing in MMA
I personally believe that the general consensus out there is that I have moved on to other things. Let me get the record straight with this TNA deal. I have never been contacted by TNA – excuse me, I haven’t been contacted by TNA since Dixie Carter and I had a nice lunch here in San Diego four years ago,” Goldberg said. “The ball is not in my court. To say that I would hit the ball out of the park if it were pitched to me, I’m not saying that by any stretch of the imagination. The pitch hasn’t even been made. It’s not me turning down a deal.
on his status in wrestling:
“The status of Bill Goldberg is I’m 43-years-old, I have a four-year-old little boy, I have a wife, and I have three TV shows I’m currently filming. Unless I can reinvent a 25-hour day, I don’t see it happening,” Goldberg said. “As much as I’d love to get back there for the fans, it’s really difficult juggling all of the things I have on my plate. I’m now fully engulfed in life after wrestling. To go back to it would be almost impossible at this point. Unless something and/or somebody came to the table with some type of a deal that it would behoove me to push something else to the side, I just don’t see it as a reality.
