Bill Goldberg WWE Return Rumors: Potential Wrestling Comeback May Be Put On Hold For Kickboxing Career [VIDEO]
Bill Goldberg's in-ring return may not prove to be that exciting for WWE fans.
The former WWE and WCW Heavyweight Champion has had rumors of a potential WWE in-ring return surround him for months after it was revealed he would take part in the WWE 2K17 video game that is due out next month.
As it turns out, a return to the ring may only come to fruition in the kickboxing realm.
Goldberg, who owns a Muay Thai gym in California, has turned down a kickboxing career in the past, but is now entertaining the thought of taking part in a match for GLORY Kickboxing.
"I don’t think the door will ever be closed on that," Goldberg told Submission Radio (via TMZ Sports). "Even at 49 years old I still really enjoy doing it. I really enjoy learning, I’m a student of the martial art and I’m a student of what it stands for and it’s become kind of a way of life for me. It’s an addiction and it satiates a lot of things for me and it also gives me a challenge. So never say never. You never say never."
Goldberg has also said "never say never" in the past when it comes to a WWE comeback.
Goldberg hasn't competed in a WWE ring since his infamous 2004 match with Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania XX inside Madison Square Garden. Though their match is much-maligned, the former man behind the 173-0 streak has revealed he'd love to face "The Beast" again and even called him out recently. Both legends have gone back and forth at each other in the media
When making his rounds for WWE 2K17, Goldberg said he'd be open to a return, especially since he'd like his son to see him compete in WWE. Still, he wouldn't be upset if it didn't come to fruition.
"it evoked a feeling that I haven't felt in a long time which is kind of cool but the reality is it ain't in my court," Goldberg told SportingNews.com about making appearances to promote the game and of a potential comeback. "It's not in my court. I've said many times that I'm willing to throw water under the bridge but, hey, at the end of the day, it is what it is."
