Anyone else even remotely getting the vibe that this whole "Goldberg hasn't re-signed" thing is just a big red herring, along the lines of "RVD is going to WCW" from 97? I've had the vibe for a couple of weeks. Last night, they had a brand new opening montage, with Goldberg included, and they started airing a commercial for new action figures (Goldberg - and Lesnar - figures were featured). Tenuous points, I know, but as I said, I've had the vibe for a while now. I just feel some angle coming up with him, Austin, Vince, Bischoff and Lesnar.

You know I noticed all that stuff that you spoke of as well ... When it comes to the action figures, I wonder if there just gonna try and unload as many of the Goldbergs in the next week as they possibly can.

But you do make a good point ...

Why? It isn't like they can't sell them after he's gone. If you go to the right ghetto toy store you can still buy ECW figures.

While you make an interesting point, I can't see what there is to be gained by it.

The only people that think/know he's leaving are those that dwell on this here internet, and really thats not where Goldberg's fan base is for the most part. Its unlikely the pop for a Goldberg win would be any bigger as a result

They haven't even played it off as a retirement match. And if Goldberg really had agreed a new deal then surely to jeebus they'd have had him on RAW to promote the Lesnar match rather than letting him see out his 'final' date at WM.

Because, and here's a new concept, it may not be his final date ever. I'm not saying he isn't finished with his run after Sunday, but that doesn't mean that 6 months from now or 8 months from now, that he won't come back due to a change of heart. Will that happen? Probably not. Could it happen? Yes. Anyone want to go down the list of guys who no one ever thought would be back in the WWE and/or Vince's good book?

My point is that while Goldie coming back down the road may not happen, it doesn't mean that it won't.

While the market stays the same with the WWE the only major wrestling brand in the US, I'm pretty sure Goldberg will be back.

Few imagined Goldberg would ever wrestle for the WWF/WWE but even in what must be a dip in success/ideas for the WWE, Goldberg signed. Once he gets fed up of Japan he'll want somewhere to return to.

Barring injury, how many wrestlers truly 'walk away' from wrestling until their about 50?

Oh I agree with that 100%. I just don't see the whole thing as being a giant red herring or work. Right now I'd say they added Austin to the mix specifically in the hope that they could get him back for 'one last run' where upon they would have the ready made foundations for arguably one of the few money matches remaining.

Granted, a Austin/Goldberg feud would be cash money, but with Austin's neck being in the shape that it's in, would you really want to see him get in the ring with Goldberg? One mule kick later, and the rattlesnake is turned into a garden snake. Nuh-uh, not gonna happen.

On Austin's neck, wasn't he on the cusp of the same surgury that Kurt Angle went through? Then again, given the fact that Kurt's on the verge now, I dunno.

And I doubt it's a red herring. He hasn't been on TV whatsoever, and I just figured they threw Austin into the mix so we get shots of Austin stunning Lesnar for future purposes, rather than have high profile film that would instill Goldberg nostalgia. (See; Sid, Vader, and Bigelow).

Alas, the worst thing to happen all night was not watching Steiner try to wrestle. It was hearing Dawn Marie utter the words "This isn't over" after she got her ass whipped. When are they gonna put us out of our misery on this one?
