WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg recently spoke with Digital Spy to talk about various topics. Here are the highlights.
“All I got to say is, it ain’t up to me. Whether it’s Reigns or ‘Taker, and, I don’t know, I’m not gonna say anybody else. Hey, Reigns and ‘Taker are the two guys on my list right now. I mean, obviously for two different reasons, but I’d be honored to get in the ring with either one of them. And I still owe Brock one, but I’m two-and-one on him, so it’s all good.”
If The Undertaker should retire:
“You know, it’s not my decision. If you asked him the same question about me, he’d probably say the same thing. At the end of the day, it’s up to the person lacing those boots up, and my opinion is nothing but that. And one person’s opinion doesn’t mean that things are right or wrong.
“I believe that in Mark’s head, Mark knows when to call it quits. He’ll do it when he wants to, and nobody can tell him otherwise, except for Vince, maybe. You know, they can sit down and have a man-to-man, and when it gets to the point where the performance isn’t there, or you’re enduring too much pain [where] you have to prepare too many different ways to get into the match, then it’s time to do it.”
Working with Kevin Owens:
“It was cool. I mean, you know, it’s tough. I’m greatly appreciative that he was a professional storyline-wise, and I went out there and beat him in a very short period of time. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to have a little program with him of any substance because it was a conduit to get to getting somewhere else.
“And he’s a great worker. Great heel. He’s a good kid. And it would have been exciting to be able to smash him a couple more times, as opposed to just once or twice. For a guy like me to go back, it’s tough to sit and have programs with all the guys that you want and with all the newcomers, because it’s just not apples to apples anymore.
“I’ve created something very fortunately with the help of a lot of people and that’s what I stand on now. And thank God for that, because I’d hate to have to come back and earn my stripes again. You know, Kevin’s a great talent, and like I said, there’s a number of guys I’d love to work with, but things are a little different now.”
