In an interview with Inside The Ropes, Goldberg doesn’t rule out a return to the ring to face the Undertaker.
Here are some highlights:
On Possibly Wrestling The Undertaker: “I would like to have it if it came available and it was right and people wanted it I’m still capable of doing it. Because once I sit here and say it’s a match I’d like to have that means I’m asking for it — I’m not asking for anything — I’m just saying if the cards fell right I wouldn’t say no.”
On His Relationship With The Undertaker: “I’ve been friends with Taker — Mark Calloway for 100 years,” Goldberg explained. “I knew Mark back when he was bouncing in Atlanta while I was playing football with The Falcons — at Georgia, excuse me — not The Falcons. He and I have been friends, acquaintances for a long time. I’ve always looked up to him man, he’s Taker. What he’s meant to the wrestling business in WWF, WWE, to all the kids and fans — he’s a legend. Anytime you’re around the guy or you’re lucky enough to be in the ring with the guy it’s cool as hell.”
On Their 2017 Royal Rumble Tease: “We teased you with something,” Goldberg explained. “The problem with that is that sometimes we’re not able to deliver and ultimately give people what they want. I’m not at WWE anymore, we never had an opportunity — other than that staredown — to look at each other in the ring in that setting. So it’s probably never gonna happen and I’m not saying that because, you know I’m setting you guys up to knock one out of the park. I’m not sitting here going, ‘Man I can’t wait until Vince calls me so I can get Taker’s ass.’ It was bittersweet that night because I knew that there wasn’t a payoff for that”
