5 Superstars other than Lesnar who should retire Goldberg

Who's next?

How long does Goldberg have left?

Despite being the Universal Champion, there's no doubt in anyone's mind that Goldberg is coming to the end of his wrestling career. That seems odd to say, considering he hasn't really been back for all that long, but many knew that this was going to be a short tenure with some thinking he may only work Survivor Series before riding off into the sunset.

Thankfully we've had a slightly more extended run, with the former WCW legend heading into WrestleMania 33 to defend his title against Brock Lesnar. Whilst that bout does scream "main event", we aren't big fans of Brock being the man to put Goldberg away once and for all.

We're so against it, in fact - that we've come up with a few alternatives who should be rewarded with that honour.

Obviously, that'd mean Goldberg coming back later on in 2017 or potentially even at WrestleMania 34, but so long as he stays in shape and doesn't get injured that shouldn't be too much of a problem. Besides, it's starting to feel more and more like the New Orleans event next year will signal the end of quite a few old school tenures in the company.

With that being said, here are five Superstars other than Lesnar who should retire Goldberg.


#5 Kurt Angle

Despite the chants, Angle most certainly does not suck

This one sounds a little bit odd, but it works into the idea of two legends going out together. Plus, wouldn't a retirement vs. retirement stipulation within this match be great with Angle riding off into the sunset afterwards anyway?

Seeing Goldberg being put in a vulnerable position with the Ankle Lock would be an iconic sight, and it's an intriguing feud to consider.

The two men were big parts of the Monday Night Wars, however, the storyline could revolve around Angle's wrestling past vs. Goldberg's football past. Two different styles that both led them down the same path of professional wrestling, ending up with a match between the two legends at WrestleMania. Tell us you wouldn't want to see that.

From one icon to another.
