WWE Hall Of Famer Goldberg was last in action at WrestleMania 36 at the Performance Center where he lost the Universal Championship to Braun Strowman. Goldberg has not appeared on WWE programming since his loss but last month, he appeared on The Pop Culture Show and revealed that he’s under contract with WWE for the next two years and his contract runs through 2023.

Goldberg added that his deal is structured on two matches per year and his commitment with WWE is still going strong.

“I am contracted with the WWE for the next two years through 2022, ’23. I’ve got two matches per year. I’ve exhausted my limit this year quite early on April the fifth with WrestleMania under these really weird circumstances. But I’ve got a couple other extremely interesting projects right on the cusp, but as you guys know in the entertainment business right now everything’s on hold unless it’s a production of 10 or under pretty much. We got a lot of cool things that people are going to find out about pretty soon. My WWE commitment is still going strong. At 53, I never would’ve imagined especially after making fun of Flair when he was doing it in his early 40s.”

Prior to WrestleMania 36, Goldberg defeated The Fiend Bray Wyatt for the Universal Championship at Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia. Goldberg was scheduled to defend the title against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania but Reigns decided to pull himself off of TV due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Goldberg is 53-years old and has worked eight matches for WWE since returning in 2016 and he’s had two Universal Championship reigns.
