What has Goldberg been up to since he retired from in-ring action in 2004? What hasn’t he been up to?!?! He’s been up to so many things! Oh, the things he’s been up to... William “Bill” Goldberg is an ex-NFL player who kinda stumbled into unstoppable success in pro wrestling.
A powerhouse that dominated WCW with a trumped up undefeated record in 1997. He kept hold of that record for over a year and became one of the biggest names in pro wrestling, maybe even the world. He was the highest paid talent, along with Bret Hart by the time WCW was eaten whole by Vince McMahon in 2001.
He had a questionable run in WWE in the mid 20 aughts, before hanging up his boots to explore life outside of the squared circle. But the man is about to make his return to WWE next week, when 2K17 is unleashed upon us and if you pre-ordered it like I did, you get to play AS Goldberg. I’m not sure what that entirely entails, but if it means I can make my create-a-wrestler inhale sparklers and snort smoke, I’m all the way in.
