Remarkably, more than two decades after the end of WCW, Goldberg is still active, with one more match on his current deal.
He last performed at WWE's Crown Jewel Show in October, defeating Bobby Lashley in a no-holds-barred, falls-count-anywhere match.
During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated
, 55-year-old Goldberg, his match with Bobby Lashley made him what he needed and he was really with it.
“That’s what I needed,” Goldberg says. “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.”
“I have cemented a legacy,” Goldberg says. “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.”
