Goldberg never announced his retirement officially from the WWE. On the night of Wrestlemania 33, he became the victim of the beast incarnate and lost the Universal Championship. It started the speculation of his retirement from the pro-wrestling business.
The following night on Monday Night Raw, he came up with a declaration that it might very well turn out to be his last appearance in a WWE ring. However, he declared that considering how much unpredictable this business is you can ‘never say never’ to any scenario.
From then onwards, he kept himself in rigorous training sessions to keep his body fit so that whenever a possible situation arrives, he can make his comeback for one more stint in the company. Now, till date, the scenario might not have come but it is not barring him from having competition in other independent wrestling promotions.
As announced by Maryland Championship Wrestling promotion, Goldberg will return to perform under their wings for a particular event named Tribute to the Legends. The company posted an update on their Twitter handle to reveal that September 30th will be the date where the former WCW franchise might lace up his boots, yet again.

The event will witness a meet and greet session which means we might get to see some more names appearing on the night. It will follow with a wrestling event starting at 7 PM. Goldberg is being promoted to feature in the main event.
If The Myth does perform in that night, then it will mark his fifth in-ring appearance ever since returning to the WWE back in October 2016. He competed at Survivor Series, Royal Rumble, Fastlane, and Wrestlemania, before this and also became the Universal Champion.
The MCW is quite famous when it comes to hosting the events featuring past legends. This one is also expected to be a good one with everybody’s favourite Goldberg in it. Meanwhile, the man himself opened up on a possible WWE return by stating the following,
“Personally and professionally, it’s something that I would have to take into consideration if it was ever presented to me again. As far as the physical aspect is concerned, as I sit and look at myself in the gym, I ask myself what I am going to do with this?
I don’t think it’s an impossibility, but it could be an improbability to ever get back in the ring, but never say never. Like I said the last time; you never know who is next and you never know what is next.”
