According to Wrestlingheadlines.com, Goldberg made an appearance at the C4 Comic Con event in Winnipeg a few weeks back and confirmed that he and Triple H have had some discussions on a possible return, but while they have spoken about it no deal was put in place.
The report states that Goldberg said he was open to coming back to the company in order for his son to see him wrestle once, but he would only do it for the right price and a big payday. Goldberg reportedly said that he would never call the WWE up and ask them to return but the ball is in their court regarding striking a deal with the former World Champion.
According to Wrestlingheadlines.com, a WWE insider said that Goldberg's financial demands were "very significant," which could possibly put a wrench in the return plans.
Goldberg noted that the WWE tried to sway him by saying "think of the pop you'll get" from the crowd if he were to return but he also said that they were "barking up the wrong tree" with their negotiating tactics.
Goldberg hasn't appeared at WrestleMania since 2003, but he may be gearing up for a return.
The rumored opponent for Goldberg if he returned has been Ryback as he has drawn "Goldberg" jeers from the crowd with the WWE audience accusing Ryback of trying to emulate Goldberg and the WWE may use that to launch a match. Ryback was recently in hot water with the company for using Goldberg's signature moves on a recent WWE tour without permission from upper management.
Ryback said that he wanted to face Goldberg in the ring in a recent radio interview on the Felger & Mazz Radio Show
"I have a great amount of respect for Bill Goldberg, but I'm not going to beat around the bush and say I wanna be best friends with the guy," he said on the radio show, according to CBS. "I'd like to face him in the ring."
Ryback then furthered the rumors of the two squaring off by saying he'd like to face him in the ring at WrestleMania.
"I've heard him say he's not happy with comments I've made about him, if he has a problem with it let's settle it at WrestleMania," he told the show, according to CBS.
Goldberg's comments were different than what he was saying on Twitter a month ago about a possible return. When a fan on Twitter asked him if he and Steve "Sting" Borden would appear at the event, Goldberg replied, "Sting, maybe...Me not likely" and he also said there was "no chance in hell" he'd be booked in a WrestleMania match against The Undertaker. If Goldberg doesn't return, it is rumored that Ryback will take on The Big Show.
It remains to be seen if Goldberg will return at WrestleMania 30, but for now there have been talks between Goldberg and the WWE for a possible comeback.
