WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg has spoken highly of several young WWE stars, including Ricochet, Big E and Sasha Banks.
The two-time Universal Champion will be challenging Bobby Lashley for the WWE Title at SummerSlam on August 21, and ahead of that has spoken with WWE India about some of today’s talents.
“You know, I think it’s been written a number of times about my respect for Big E, that I have. I got to say that Ricochet is one of the most talented talents that I’ve ever seen, in any profession, not just the wrestling business. The things that he can bring to the ring… Sasha Banks, what she can do is unbelievable. There are so many Superstars that are on the cusp of greatness right now. Becky Lynch, see what she does, obviously she’s kind of a part-timer sometimes. It’s hard to really put people in a perfect category that describes their job description.
“But there is a plethora of talent coming up through the ranks in the WWE. Keith Lee, the kid is a monster. There are so many that I can only list those few, because there are so many that are right behind them. But I think it’s a fresh time for the wrestling business, and a fresh time for the WWE to pull to the front and center of the business.”
His comment about Lynch being “kind of a part-timer sometimes” is a bit muddled – it’s just that she’s been out of action since April 2020 due to having a baby.
It’s good to at least know that Goldberg is keeping up with the product enough to the point he can name a few valid names like that
