WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair talked about Goldberg possibly winning the 2017 Royal Rumble and more during the latest edition of “The Ric Flair Show.”
On Having Goldberg Win the Rumble and Main Event Wrestlemania:
With the momentum he has; I mean, Brock did him the biggest favor I have seen in this business in a long time. I mean, really, think about it. He just beat Brock Lesnar in a minute and 26 seconds, and convincingly. I mean, and they both look great, Bill looked to be in great shape. My only concern was my worry of him being ready; not to faults of his own, but be ready to be bounced around by Brock, but he didn’t have to experience it, so I’m happy for both of them. They both are making a lot of money, especially Brock.
I’m told that he wasn’t hurt, so once again, just hearing that from the outside, that he wasn’t hurt and is going to be okay. He lives for that thrill, that moment, and as long as he is comfortable with it, I see no problem with it; and he likes it, he always has, so once again, I’m just hearing that from the outside that he is going to be okay. He’s definitely not doing it for the money, he just enjoys it, so why take something away from him that he enjoys?
On the Wrestlemania Plans Being Brock Lesnar vs. Shane McMahon:
I don’t see that. I see Shane vs. Hunter at Wrestlemania, that’s what I see, that would really draw money considering the unknown animosity, which nobody seems to understand or know, but clearly there is some.
