WWE Hall of Famer Bill Goldberg is reportedly now a free agent after his WWE contract expired.

Fightful has reported that Goldberg's contract expired at the end of last year, with no deal being reached between him and WWE to renew or extend it.

Goldberg's last WWE match was at Elimination Chamber in February 2022 where he lost a WWE Universal Championship match to Roman Reigns.

He had returned to the company in 2016 after over a decade away from wrestling, with his first match taking place at Survivor Series where he would defeat Brock Lesnar in under two minutes.

At Fastlane in 2017 he would capture the Universal Championship for the first time when he defeated Kevin Owens. During his WWE run, Goldberg would have 12 matches, including participating in the 2017 Royal Rumble.

Speaking to Sports Illustrated last month, Goldberg hinted that he still has one more match left in him. "You never say never, especially in wrestling, and they owe me one," Goldberg said.

"That's all I can say. I made a deal with the devil and I did my job, and they owe me a retirement match. At the end of the day, at 56, it's not something where I'm sitting by the phone waiting for a call. I've got a few ideas of how to do it on my own, possibly in Israel. So never say never."

Speaking about the fans' reaction to his return to WWE, Goldberg said: "The tenacity of wrestling fans is unparalleled. I'm not going to sit here and say that I owe them everything, but I sure as hell am close. It's an honor to be remembered and supported by such a group of people. There is such a fever pitch in the passion of the fans. To be part of that, I'm blessed."
