I Read on the dirt sheet's about 2 months ago that goldberg was in negotiations with WWE concerning merch sales, HOF next year etc, Does anyone know what happened with that? did the whole thing just die in the arse or did it actually go somewhere.
He said they couldn't come to an agreement he was happy with so talks had ended.
Pretty much this. It was a really vague report. It was never clear whether the disagreement had to do with money or his role in the company, but considering Goldberg's history, I naturally assumed the latter. Especially considering how different Goldberg's run in WWE was from his WCW run and how briefly he stayed with WWE. I really doubt money had anything to do with it. Pretty sure Goldberg wanted to rule the wrestling world again and bury the WWE roster, but Vince wasn't having it. Of course that's just my assumption, but I fail to see how Vince couldn't afford him.
