Yes, Goldberg has signed with Hockey Gladiators, the fledgling Pay Per View hockey fight event. From today's edition of the Winnipeg Sun..

'Huge signing for us'

Fighting is the raison d'etre of Gladiators -- worth $100,000 US to the winner and scheduled for Aug. 27 and 28 at the Target Center in Minneapolis.

In the biggest signing to date, (Darryl) Wolski and his partner Mike Davidson have inked World Wrestling Entertainment superstar Goldberg to a deal, The Sun has learned.

Goldberg, one of the headliners in Wrestlemania this Sunday in New York, has been confirmed as a colour commentator for the Gladiators play-by-play team.

"After a fight happens, he'll throw his two cents in," Wolski explained. "He is a huge signing for us."

Wolski, who has booked close to 20 goons to drop the gloves in the knock-down contest, said he is also in negotiations with former wrestler and former Minnesota governor Jesse Ventura and comedian Dennis Leary to sign on as commentators.

So, good fit? Does this mean he's definitely out after Wrestlemania? Or should this have been posted in the Hockey folder?

This sounds like a one-time show, so I'm not sure it will have any bearing on Goldberg's potential future with the WWE.

The announcement is poorly timed, perhaps, with the current backlash against fighting in hockey, what with Bertuzzi in such big shit and all for the sucker punch/broken neck incident this week.

As bad as Goldberg is in his promos, I cringe at the thought of listening to him as a color-commentator.

Not that any more than eight people in the entire world are gonna watch this thing, anyway.

The first half of the story, which I didn't copy over (but which you can find on canoe.ca) actually dealt with the Bertuzzi incident, and how it would impact the Hockey Gladiators show. I don't plan on ordering it myself, I think it's rather silly, but I figured Goldberg's involvement, as well as the possible addition of Jesse Ventura down the road, was worth saying here.

He's done some commentary for the PRIDE Fighting Championships. From what I've heard, it's not that bad. Of course, this time he won't have Bas Rutten to carry him.





There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

I've definatly enjoyed the past couple shows of Non-Perv Lawler. I'd still rather have him replaced though. A couple good weeks does not make up for what he's done.
