Goldberg says his WWE contract will see him wrestle two matches a year until 2023
Many WWE fans were unhappy with how Goldberg was used this year, but those fans better brace themselves for more of the same.
Goldberg has revealed that he is contracted to do two WWE matches a year until 2023.
The WCW legend has been appearing sporadically in WWE since making a return in 2016 and has even had two title reigns in that time.
His latest title reign came at the expense of Bray Wyatt’s The Fiend, one of the most compelling characters fans had gotten behind in years.
Speaking on the Pop Culture Show podcast, the 53 year old laid out his future plans.
“I am contracted with the WWE for the next two years through 2022, ’23. I’ve got two matches per year.
“I’ve exhausted my limit this year quite early on April 5 with WrestleMania under these really weird circumstances. But I’ve got a couple other extremely interesting projects right on the cusp, but as you guys know in the entertainment business right now everything’s on hold unless it’s a production of 10 or under pretty much.
“We got a lot of cool things that people are going to find out about pretty soon. My WWE commitment is still going strong.
“At 53, I never would’ve imagined especially after making fun of Flair when he was doing it in his early 40s,” he said.
Goldberg has had a hit and miss relationship with WWE.
After being brought in at the insistence of The Rock in 2003, the former NFL man had an up and down one-year run that ended with a terrible match against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 20.
After capturing the Universal title from Kevin Owens at Fastlane in 2017, Goldberg and Lesnar would redeem themselves some 13 years later at WrestleMania 33 and put on a good match.
In between those 13 years, there was a lot of bitterness and it seemed very unlikely that they would ever work together again – but here we are.
Goldberg says he is committed for another few years yet and many fans are now wondering if The Fiend will get is win back.
