They say it is just for a video game, but you never know these days. Getting Goldberg under contract will help with some licensing things and promotion for Wrestlemania 31.
There is also a slim possibility he could wrestle at Wrestlemania 31, if he and the WWE can reach a deal. Here are the details courtesy of The Smackdown Hotel.
F4WOnline.com is reporting that WWE is currently setting up plans to get Bill Goldberg signed to some sort of deal with the company way before WrestleMania 31.
The current plan is to have Goldberg signed and used in the WWE 2K15 video game, which is set to release in the fall.
WWE wants to promote it at SummerSlam and continue to market and build the signing of Goldberg all the way until WrestleMania 31, which could be a match and/or a Hall of Fame induction.
