The Undertaker will be facing off against Goldberg this weekend in Saudi Arabia. However, there hasn’t been much build for the match-up between the two legends other than their encounters this week.
Recently, WWE Hall Of Famer Mark Henry took to Busted Open Radio to offer his thoughts on the matter. When asked about the lack of story between the two heading into the match, here’s what Henry had to say:
It’s not about all the wins and losses that Goldberg and Undertaker have amassed in all of these years,” he said. “These are 2 of the greatest wrestling icons in the history of the game. Any time that you can put together fantasy warfare…this is modern day fantasy warfare.
If I was Goldberg, and he mentioned my family, my kid, I’d go on TV tonight and say ‘Listen dude, you’re a man, you will bleed just like anyone else … You wanted the Goldberg that was 100-0? You got him.’,” he said. “If we get that guy, you don’t need buildup, you don’t need a storyline, you just need to turn the music on and let these two monsters walk to the ring, and it’ll be like Godzilla and Mothra.
