Tony Khan Talks Goldberg Rumors, HBO's 'Sopranos' Name For WWE

By Marchman · Friday, January 11, 2019 · 0 Comments


All Elite Wrestling will be entering the wrestling landscape this year, and it is set to make a huge potential impact. A number of rumors regarding television deals and roster members have been reported on lately, and fans are eager to see AEW succeed. One of the tactics that AEW officials are reportedly using to get AEW off the ground is recruiting some of wrestling's greatest legends. Following some discussion of WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg joining the promotion, fans discovered that AEW and the former Universal Champion began following each other on social media. Some have chosen to believe that Goldberg will be debuting for AEW down the line, but the promotion's president addressed the rumors in a new interview.

Could Goldberg be on his way into All Elite Wrestling very soon? According to Tony Khan during an interview on Sean Waltman's 1-2-360 podcast, he is definitely interested in working with the legendary WCW competitor, but no official deal has been made as of yet. Goldberg is 52-years-old now, but he proved that he can still work just like the Goldberg of old during his brief return to WWE in 2016-2017. Khan says that he knows and has had conversations with the former world champion, so it will certainly be interesting to see whether or not he does end up wrestling or working for AEW in some other capacity later this year. Khan's full comments on Goldberg possibly signing with All Elite Wrestling were as follows:

“I have spent some time will Bill, I really like Bill a lot and he’s one of the greatest drawing cards ever in the business, he’s a huge star, a household name … and yeah, if the situation was right, obviously. I haven’t agreed to anything with Bill or anything but I like Bill a lot.”

Yesterday officially marked 20 years since HBO's hit mob drama "The Sopranos" premiered on television. The show began airing in 1999 and concluded in 2007, but it's unique tone and the introduction of the 'anti-hero' changed television in a way that is still felt today. WWE has also had its own impact on TV over the years, so naturally, they were up for the challenge when HBO asked fans via social media if they wanted to learn their "Soprano nicknames." The network gave the company the name "The McMahon Crime Family." Some wrestlers have compared working in the industry to the mafia before, so perhaps the concept of the McMahons leading their very own family isn't too much of a stretch after all.
