Bill Goldberg, a WWE Hall of Famer, has only one match left on his current WWE contract, as previously reported. In a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, the 55-year-old pro-wrestler was asked if the forthcoming battle will be his final one. Despite the fact that Goldberg’s professional wrestling career is coming to an end, he intends to ‘open up opportunities’ for his son Gage, who was engaged in the Goldberg – Bobby Lashley storyline last year.

“I’m focused on what’s next,” Goldberg said. “If they want to come back to me with something, we’ll talk. You never know what the future holds.”

“As a power wrestler, it’s tough. It’s not easy to do this at my age. But I knew that, and I said the hell with it. For me, the prize is worth it, and that’s to open up opportunities for my son. If I can continue to do what I’m doing and continue to provide opportunities for him, then I’ll consider this a success,” he added.

Goldberg expressed his gratitude to WWE for providing him enough time to prepare for his feud with Lashley, especially for their No Holds Barred Match at the Crown Jewel pay per view last October.

“That’s what I needed,” Goldberg said. “I love Bobby and wanted to work with him for years, and we clicked. I was given more time to get ready for that match, and I was really happy with it. Not to beat a broken record, but that’s what happens when I have more time.”

‘Honored and privileged’

When questioned if his current WWE run has harmed or aided his legacy, Goldberg said he feels proud and blessed to continuously perform for wrestling fans.

“I have cemented a legacy,” Goldberg stressed. “It’s been tarnished a little bit. There is a huge risk every time I come back, and that’s a challenge I’ve taken on. But looking at the whole, I am honored and privileged to be Goldberg in the WCW days, and I am still honored to be doing it today.”

“I’m the last one that should pass judgment on his career. I try not to look back too often. I’m not a fatalist, but I don’t like the end of anything. If looking back brings me closer to the end, I’d rather wait until it’s over,” the hall of famer added.
