We may be in a New Era in the WWE with younger superstars and a changing of the guard in the main event scene, but that doesn't mean WWE stars of yesteryear are blacklisted or being written out of TV.
The WWE loves bringing in some former stars to try and boost the interest in the product around big pay-per-views.
One wrestling legend who may well be interested in making a return to the WWE is Goldberg and the spearing machine recently spoke about a potential comeback to the squared circle.

During an interview with Romain Mahut to promote the WWE 2k17 video game, Bill Goldberg talked about being away from WWE and the potential for him to come back for one more match.
“That’s a very big issue that I’ll have to deal with in that I’m greatly appreciative of anybody and everybody that would want me to return to the ring. But, at the end of the day, it’s not just my decision,” he said.
According to the 49-year-old, however, he has only ever spoken to the WWE main hierarchy once in over a decade. Not exactly a great footing for a potential return.
“The reality is you’re hearing this straight from my mouth. I spoke to Hunter one time, I think, in the last 12 years. Never been in negotiations. Just a conversation here and there, but it never went to the next level. I think both of us were on the same page with that.”
But, don't let that put a dampener on your hopes. If Goldberg was ever serious about coming back for one more run, in a move which could very well help the game and tie in with a potential hall of fame entrance, the WWE would hopefully be all for it.
“If something like that happened, could there be a possibility of me doing more than one appearance? You never know," he explained. "But, at the end of the day, there has to be one before there [are] more than one.”
Goldberg left the WWE in less than stellar circumstances, having one of the worst WrestleMania matches of all time against Brock Lesnar at WM20 as fans booed both wrestlers after finding out they were leaving the company.
Coming back for one last run would be a great way to get rid of those demons of the past.
