Bill attended Tulsa Edison High School, where he played football. He would go on to earn a scholarship to play as a defensive tackle for the University of Georgia Bulldogs.
Since April 2005, Bill has been married to stunt double Wanda Ferraton. They met on the set of the motion picture “Santa’s Slay.” They have one child, Gage. The family presently resides in Bonsall, California.
Bill started his NFL career in 1990 when he was selected by the Los Angeles Rams in the 11th round and was picked 302nd overall. He immediately played in the 1990 season and then played for a few more years with other teams, including the Atlanta Falcons and the Carolina Panthers. Bill’s NFL career came to an end when he suffered a severe injury and had to undergo serious rehabilitation. Despite becoming 100 percent healthy, NFL teams didn’t want him anymore.
As he started to heal, Bill started to learn mixed martial arts and powerlifting. He was noticed by professional wrestling legends Sting and Lex Luger and began to train at the World Championship Wrestling (WCW) Power Planet and a signed a contract with the promotion. Bill would make his WCW television debut in September 1997 against Hugh Morrus. Bill would experience tremendous success in WCW, even a year-long undefeated streak. He would go on to win the WCW World Heavyweight Championship and the United States Championship.
After WCW folded in early 2001, Bill floundered around, including signing with All Japan Pro Wrestling. It was in 2003 when Bill signed with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), where he would win the World Heavyweight Championship. The run only lasted a year and was panned by much of the industry. He would venture into other areas.
Bill worked as a color commentator in mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion World Fighting Alliance (WFA). He would later get work in various motion pictures and television series, including “Universal Soldier: The Return,” “The Longest Yard,” “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” “Desperate Housewives” and “Family Guy.”
He co-owns and operates a Muay Thai and amateur boxing training facility called the “Extreme Power Gym.” Bill is actively involved in philanthropy, particularly when it comes to animal welfare and military veterans.
We estimate that Bill Goldberg’s net worth is $14 million (2015).
So how much is $14 million really?
Bill is extremely passionate about cars so $14 million can buy you about a dozen or so 1967 Mustang GT 500 vehicles. $14 million could also buy you roughly 10,000 replica World Heavyweight Championship belts.
