WWE legend Bill Goldberg to ‘retire’ in Israel with icon rival Sting ‘involved’

2 min read

One of the most legendary names to ever step foot into a wrestling ring is set have a retirement match in Israel.

Former WWE and WCW champion Bill Goldberg had spoken recently about wanting to retire on his own terms with another match.

His WWE contract expired earlier this year, and it looks as if the company is not going to bring him back to have that final moment – despite his legendary career.

The man who once went on 173-match unbeaten run during the days when World Championship Wrestling was the biggest company in the world in the late 90s, now appears set on having his final match in Israel.

Goldberg, 56, is Jewish and has said previously he wants to wrestle in Israel, but has yet to do so.

But it looks as if his final match will take place in the Jewish homeland – and fellow legend Sting, who is currently signed to All Elite Wrestling, could be involved.

Promoter Rick Bassman, speaking to Haus of Wrestling, said: “First of all, I’m actively in touch with Bill, I’m working on a date right now.

“I don’t promote much these days but every now and then, something fun comes up, and it’s worth diving into.

“So working on a date in Jerusalem, Israel for September of this year, and that would involve, potentially, both Goldberg and Sting.

“And then on the whole ladder, you have the AEW clearance issues, of course.

“So that’s something that I really hope to put together.”

However, he didn't rule out Goldberg returning to WWE for one last match.

And it could be as part of a full-scale retirement tour.

He added: “Now, only because I’ve been in touch actively with Bill, and then also with his agent, Barry Bloom, who is a long-time good friend, they are working on exactly what you described, but to my knowledge, it still needs to all be nailed down.

“That said, I would not be surprised to see Bill end up back in WWE for something massive.”
