WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg has reflected on his infamous match with The Undertaker at Super ShowDown 2019.
Fans will remember that the match quickly got ugly, with Goldberg appearing to drop The Deadman on his head on multiple occasions during the bout.
On the Pat McAfee Show, the former Universal Champion recalled feeling confused after his ceremonial door headbutt backstage. Goldberg confirmed that he also received a concussion from a spot in the match, explaining:
“I’d been out for a while and everybody’s got a routine, and I kind of forgot my routine. But I remembered the headbutt. So, on the way out, I headbutt the door. And I don’t know where I am after that, I’ve got no idea what’s going on.
“I’m kind of getting to the ring and then we’ve got the spot where he moves and I hit the turnbuckle. Well, I didn’t go out and look at the turnbuckle beforehand, and it was a different setup from what we normally would have at Raw or SmackDown. I took that one. I try to take things as realistic as possible and I took it wrong. So, let’s just say I got another concussion right there and opened myself up pretty good.
“It’s the referee and the booker’s responsibility to call what’s going on in there. You know, they’re on the mic and the headset and everything. The referee, I remember he came up to me 10, 15 times during that match, ‘how’re you doing?’ And I’m like, ‘I’m good, I’m good.’ And by the time he’d walk away, I’d go, ‘I don’t know what’s going on.’
“It was a different answer every time and the fact is, I never should’ve done what I did. But I did, I tried to go through with it but unfortunately, it turned out to be a debacle. It’s a wonder that we both didn’t get smashed during that match. It was a very bad missed opportunity. But hey, at the end of the day, I was just trying to provide a better show for everybody else.”
Goldberg recently stated that he needs shoulder surgery, indicating that he has one match remaining on his WWE contract.
