Goldberg Finally Weighs In On Brock Lesnar



It has been nearly two months since Goldberg ended his run with the WWE. It was a highly successful stint that saw him feud primarily with Brock Lesnar that all culminated in a final match at WrestleMania 33. During a recent interview with Wrestling Inc., Goldberg discussed how everything unfolded for him during his return to the WWE.

“It was a very tense build up and everything; 13 years far removed from the business, 13 years removed from the match, and the way we had went out. At the same time it was different circumstances, but in everyone’s eye it was a negative, self included so to be able to be able to have an opportunity to put something positive ahead so people don’t dwell on that the rest of their lives and get a little retribution and go out and show everyone that I can still do it.

“There are a lot of things on that checklist that I had to take into consideration, I’m currently writing a book about my last run; I mean, there was a lot packed in within a very short period of time. At the end of the day I am honored, humbled and privileged to anybody that thought I could pull it off and given the opportunity to show that I can. From the first day to the last day, I had all the confidence in the world to no confidence at all, which is what drives me; trying to be humble in every respect, where sometimes the negative pushes you to the point where you are in an emotional tizzy about it, which is a word I have never used. It’s a mentally lobotomizing situation that I can sit here and complain about all day long where people wouldn’t understand it, but at the end of the day I am the luckiest guy in the world to be given that opportunity.”

Heading into his return, there was no indication of how it would go. It was originally supposed to be a one-off match with Lesnar, but there was a strong reaction to seeing him come back. However, he stretched out until WrestleMania 33 becoming arguably the biggest star in the company during that span.

It’s something that certainly left the door open for him in the future. Although he is limited in his ability in the ring, he showed he is capable of performing at a high level. All in all, there could be more Goldberg in the WWE down the line.
