Speaking to Bleacher Report, Goldberg continued to hype the potential showdown against The Tribal Chief. 

"If the Roman Reigns match isn't the match at the top of my priority list, then I wouldn't be Goldberg," he said. "That's a match that needs to happen. It's a match that's needed to happen for a very long period of time. I wish I would've been able to have that match 10 years ago. People in hell want ice water, too. You can't have everything the way you want it, but I think I can still be a very formidable opponent for him. Georgia will always be better than Georgia Tech at the end of the day, anyway."

Goldberg has two years left on his WWE deal with two matches per-year. As far as other potential opponents go, he's aiming for the top stars in the company. 

"I'm a business guy, I'm a company guy, but I would be remiss in saying I didn't want to tangle again with Randy Orton," he said. "Hands down, he's one of the best in the business. His professionalism, his character development, his in-ring work, his promos, his everything. I'm a huge fan, I have been for a very long time. It's been in his blood and family for God knows how long and he's at the top of the food chain as far as I'm concerned. I'd love to tangle with Randy again. I'd love to get in the ring with Drew [McIntyre]. I'd love to get in the ring with [Keith] Lee. There's a lot of people that are still attractive out there."

While his contract would indicate that he has at least two more years left as an in-ring performer, Goldberg commented if he plans to wrestle past 2023. 

"We always have to cross that bridge when we come to it," Goldberg said. "I'm 53 years old, I'll be 54 here in a couple of weeks. Hey, as long as my body can still do it, I'm still going to do it. It's very tough because being a power wrestler at this age, I'm not the person I was back in the past. You have that sense of, 'Oh, am I ruining my legacy?' Well, you know what? I still have to put food on the table for my family. There are a lot of things that come into consideration, and at the end of the day, I'm a businessman," he continued. "I do what I got to do to stay afloat and stay out there. I don't see myself hanging it up any time soon, but then again, I also don't see myself wrestling until I'm 60."

While nothing has been confirmed regarding Goldberg's return, a new report from WrestleVotes indicated that Goldberg vs. Reigns is currently planned for WrestleMania 37. You can view the report by clicking here
