UPDATE: There is no love lost between Bill Goldberg and Scott Hall after the two last worked together in World Championship Wrestling over a decade ago. Thursday morning on Twitter, Hall slighted the former World Heavyweight Champion after a fan asked him what “Goldberg!” chants remind him of: “#Goldmark.”
Goldberg was made aware of Hall’s diss on Twitter and responded to a fan, “He’s a waste of space.”

His slight is in reference to Goldberg having a reputation within the professional wrestling industry of taking his character too seriously.
In the past, Goldberg has labeled Hall as “unprofessional” and blamed him for a near career-ending injury at a December 1999 WCW event where he smashed the windows of a limousine with his bare hands. He lost a large amount of blood due to this and came within one centimeter of having to have an arm amputated.
“I should’ve killed him but I didn’t,” Goldberg told Mike Mooneyham of The Post & Courier in a 2001 interview discussing the incident. “Scott Hall is very unprofessional and he often breaks character and does things I don’t agree with. I try to be professional and set a positive example, but unfortunately he doesn’t share the same views. Vince Russo couldn’t control him and we had an issue, and instead of being unprofessional and making him pay, I took my frustrations out on that limousine.”
