Goldberg has commented on his pro-wrestling future, ahead of Saturday’s WWE Elimination Chamber premium live event.
At the event, Goldberg will challenge Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship. This will be Goldberg’s final match on his current WWE deal, so could potentially be the Hall of Famer’s final bout ever.
On WWE After The Bell, the former WCW star admitted that he’ll never lose the warrior mindset, so will never be ready to hang up his boots for good.
Not wanting to take someone’s spot, Goldberg said:
“I would not ride off in the sunset if I was victorious (at Elimination Chamber) by any stretch of the imagination because a champions responsibility is to be there on television and represent to the ‘nth’ degree. If I was victorious, I would not run out of here, I would not hold anybody up, I would not do anything like that because of what the business has given me. I’m not that guy anymore.
“It does present a very interesting predicament. I try not to look past my current adversary. I’ll deal with that situation afterwards. For right now, this could be the last one. I have to go out the right way. I’m gonna try to break Roman’s face and every other part of his body so I can be the Universal Champion.
I’ll never be ready to be done. It’s something that…I can’t explain it. Once a warrior, always a warrior, you’ll never take it out of me….It’s a conundrum, it really is. I don’t want to tarnish anything, I don’t want to insult anybody.
“I don’t want to take a spot that’s not mine, but somebody had faith in me and I need to reflect upon that and have faith in myself. This business, this life, especially during these times, it’s not hard to second guess yourself, your decisions.
“I’m not going to cry or play a fiddle or make an excuse, I just have to be me. If there’s enough of me to still do what is asked from me, then I’m still here and I’m not going anywhere. That’s a different aspect of the preparation. it’s tough not to think about all that leading up to tomorrow, but I’m human. It’s an interesting situation.”
As of writing, Goldberg hasn’t been advertised for any episodes of SmackDown following this weekend’s premium live event.
