Tony Khan has commented on the possibility of WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg wrestling for AEW or ROH.
Following reports that Goldberg’s WWE contract expired at the beginning of 2023, there has been a lot of speculation about the free agent’s next move in wrestling.
Some have predicted that the former Universal Champion will eventually wrestle for one of the promotions under the Tony Khan banner.
During the ROH Supercard of Honor media scrum, Khan stated that Goldberg will never wrestle for ROH.
Intrigued by the idea of Goldberg in AEW, Khan said:
“Goldberg in Ring of Honor is never going to happen. However, I do think that (Goldberg acquisition) would be interesting for AEW.
“That is another great example of the differences between AEW and Ring of Honor. AEW has a bigger budget, but I try to take the production values of AEW and use some of the synergies so ROH can leverage AEW’s great production team and assets.
“But, at the same time, it’s also great for AEW to develop young wrestlers, to have some of the top stars come here [to ROH] and represent that company.
“At the same time, there are things I would do in AEW that are more expensive. There are things in ROH that are more catered to a hardcore fanbase.
“I know we can bring in wrestlers that people will be excited to see, but that might not necessarily translate to a huge Neilsen rating.
“Although ROH has done record live gates and revenue over the past year or so, I don’t want to do something out of character (by bringing in Goldberg).”
An update has emerged on an in-ring pitch that Goldberg has received during his free-agency, which you can read more about right here.
