With rumours and hints that Goldberg could be facing Universal Champion Roman Reigns at WrestleMania, fans are already voicing their displeasure.
A lot of fans have been less than impressed with Goldberg’s recent WWE outings, and the idea of him being brought back for another major match, instead of using younger talents on the card, has been criticised heavily.
Speaking with Bleacher Report, Goldberg said:
“They’re not nearly as respectful as they used to be. I think it’s more about how they can turn the momentum of the show as opposed to actually being a part of it. They actually want to dictate more so than in the past. They were content just sitting back and being entertained as opposed to dictating what’s going on. That’s really the biggest difference for me is the crowd.”
Speaking about the prospect of a Reigns match, he added:
“If the Roman Reigns match isn’t the match at the top of my priority list, then I wouldn’t be Goldberg. That’s a match that needs to happen. It’s a match that’s needed to happen for a very long period of time. I wish I would’ve been able to have that match 10 years ago. People in hell want ice water, too. You can’t have everything the way you want it, but I think I can still be a very formidable opponent for him. Georgia will always be better than Georgia Tech at the end of the day, anyway.”
And when asked if there was anyone else he’d want to face, he said:
“I’m a business guy, I’m a company guy, but I would be remiss in saying I didn’t want to tangle again with Randy Orton. Hands down, he’s one of the best in the business. His professionalism, his character development, his in-ring work, his promos, his everything. I’m a huge fan, I have been for a very long time. It’s been in his blood and family for God knows how long and he’s at the top of the food chain as far as I’m concerned. I’d love to tangle with Randy again. I’d love to get in the ring with Drew [McIntyre]. I’d love to get in the ring with [Keith] Lee. There’s a lot of people that are still attractive out there.”
