We are just a month away from this year’s WrestleMania Goes Hollywood Premium Live Event. With the biggest show of WWE approaching near, fans are hoping to see many big names pop up at The Showcase of Immortals.

The WWE Universe can add one more superstar to their must-see list. There is a slight chance that WWE legend Goldberg, might show up at The Grandest Stage of Them All since he believes that WWE owes him one last “retirement match.”

Da Man recently had a chat with Sports Illustrated. In his interview, he speaks about his desire to wrestle one more time. He states he has not hung up his boots yet and is hoping that WWE gives him a chance to bid adieu to the pro wrestling universe.

The two-time WWE Universal Champion says, “You never say never, especially in wrestling, and they owe me one. That’s all I can say. I made a deal with the devil and I did my job, and they owe me a retirement match.”

Nevertheless, he also mentioned that he is not just going to wait for WWE to provide him with that opportunity. “At the end of the day, at 56, it’s not something where I’m sitting by the phone waiting for a call. I’ve got a few ideas of how to do it on my own, possibly in Israel. So never say never,” said Goldberg.

If the legendary wrestler’s wish doesn’t come to fruition, he can be content that his last involvement in a WWE ring was for competing for a major honor.

Da Man’s last WWE appearance

The Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns, had a long list of opponents who he laid flat in the past year. One name on the long list is Da Man. The two stars went off one-on-one at The WWE Elimination Chamber held at the Jeddah Super Dome in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on Saturday, February 19, 2022.

The WWE Legend could not defeat the Undisputed Champion of WWE. His attempt to capture the WWE Universal Championship went up in fumes when he passed out to a guillotine choke courtesy of The Head of the Table. The bout was a short one, and many fans wanted a better outcome from it.
