What’s the story?

In a recent interview with WWE.com, WCW and WWE legend Goldberg teased a potential comeback to the squared circle.

Upon being probed about a possible return to the WWE, Goldberg asserted one must never say never; and that should he and WWE come to terms on another run for him, his return to the company would take a considerably lesser amount of effort than what it took in his previous return after a 13-year hiatus.

Additionally, Goldberg also reminisced about the 20th anniversary of his WCW debut; stating that he does feel proud looking back at the glory of old, with his wife & son; besides also thanking every wrestler, coach, promoter and the fans for helping him have a great career.

In case you didn’t know…

Goldberg is widely regarded as one of the most important performers and characters in the history of WCW.

The legendary athletic specimen also had a brief run in the WWE, after WCW folded, and returned to the ‘E last year for another short run that culminated at Wrestlemania 33 earlier this year.

The heart of the matter

Goldberg initially jested with the WWE reporters, urging them to ask their boss as to whether ‘The Myth’ has another run in the WWE.

However, he did, in fact, allude to a possible return to the WWE; insinuating that he’s in much better shape -- both mentally & physically -- right now than he was during his 13-year break from the professional wrestling business.

Furthermore, apart from thanking everyone in the business, he stated:

"I'm friggin' old, dude. (Laughs) Like I said, I'm one of the luckiest guys in the world (and) to be able to look back 20 years ago today when I have a beautiful wife and a beautiful son, and be able to share some memories with them in real time looking back on it, I'm one of the luckiest guys in the world.”

“I'm very appreciative of my position and I worked my a** off to get here." 

What’s next?

Goldberg seems to be content in retirement, having stepped away from the wrestling ring, however, as we inch closer towards 2018 and the Royal Rumble, the professional wrestling community has started to speculate whether the WWE may opt to bring back a few legends, including Goldberg so as to boost their struggling ratings.

Author’s take

Goldberg is one of the most unique performers to have ever competed in the sport of pro-wrestling.

Regardless of whether or not he laces up the wrestling boots again, his legacy is already secure. Would you like to see the powerhouse return to WWE for one last run?
