Hyping this summer’s slate of iMPACT! Wrestling episodes on Spike TV as “the biggest summer ever” in the history of the nine-year program, TNA Wrestling President Dixie Carter touted via Twitter the soon arrival of a “big free agent signing.” On the social networking service, two-time world champion Bill Goldberg immediately squashed the possibility of joining the Nashville-based promotion.
“I’m telling you now it would never happen,” he said in response to a user asking him whether he is the individual in question.
The same Twitter user then wrote, “thank god for that I’d quit watching impact.” In response, Goldberg quipped, “Yep…..you and the other 4 people.”
A few months after Hulk Hogan’s arrival to TNA Wrestling, the legendary grappler claimed that Goldberg was in negotiations to join the organization. Goldberg, however, debunked the claim, stating to TulsaWorld.com, “Pardon my French, but Hulk Hogan’s full of crap because I was never in negotiations with TNA.”
As noted earlier here on the website, former WWE champion Dave Bautista responded to a fan Twitter question asking whether he is the individual Dixie Carter is referring to as a “big free agent signing”.
“Seriously? I am a @WWE guy to the core,” he wrote.
When asked whether he has anything against the promotion, he wrote, “no of course not.”
