Speaking on Rene Dupree's podcast, former WWE Light Heavyweight Champion Duane Gill, also known as Gillberg, spoke about a potential match against Goldberg. He revealed that he asked Goldberg to have a match with him as it would be a big draw. However, the former Universal Champion wasn't interested at all.

''I asked right to his face, I said, ‘Goldberg, please, let’s have this match.’ I said, ‘You’ll make a million dollars, I’ll make a hundred thousand. I can retire and you’ll kill the Gillberg gimmick.’ ‘Nope… nope… nope…’”
