In pro wrestling, is there ever a mere coincidence?
Only three days after being announced as a new and functioning pro wrestling promotion, All Elite Wrestling is proving it knows how to generate buzz.
Yesterday ( Jan. 2), AEW officially announced the signings of Matt & Nick Jackson of The Young Bucks and Cody Rhodes, Hangman Page and Brandi Rhodes - along with a report they’ve signed Britt Baker.
The only small surprise in this lot was Baker but even she already had a working relationship with everyone involved with AEW, thanks to her appearance at ALL IN back in Sept. 2018.
Almost on cue, rumors then began to surface of who else AEW would like to sign to their roster. Rumors pointed to AEW going hard after WWE personnel, including a mix of younger wrestlers as well as legends. One of the WWE/WCW legends said to be on AEW’s list was Goldberg.
Social media sleuths have now pointed to the fact that Goldberg, of 593,000 Twitter followers, recently followed the AEW and ALL IN 2: Double or Nothing accounts.
Before Goldberg’s move to follow the crew over at AEW, the former WCW champion most recent move was to follow current WWE Hall of Famer Hillbilly Jim. So Hillbilly Jim to ALL IN 2 pretty much confirmed, right?
It was only less than two years ago when Goldberg walked into WrestleMania 33 carrying the biggest title in WWE around his waist. What kind of role could Goldberg potentially have with AEW in 2019?
