Goldberg had a fantastic run for WWE between 2016-17 during his feud with Brock Lesnar. For what it’s worth, their WrestleMania 33 clash over the Universal Championship is actually a great match.
However, fans are less keen on Goldberg’s latest run for WWE, when he defeated The Fiend to capture the Universal Championship in Saudi Arabia at Super ShowDown. The decision was almost universally hated by fans.
For much of his latest run with the company, Goldberg was booed by the majority of fans. During a recent interview with American Monster Productions, Goldberg spoke about being booed by fans:
It’s hard, it’s nerve racking. But I’m 53 years old now, things are different for me,” Goldberg said. “If I go out and a crowd boos me, I don’t take it personally and feel as if we’re not worthy of doing anything. No offence guys. There’s a lot of asshole fans out there. There’s a different generation of fans now, they want to be that guy that started that chant, and that guy that made Goldberg spit at them, or do whatever. I’m not here to give them the time to do that.
“The reality is they are paying for me to put on a show for them, they are not paying for them to be a part of the show. They’re a part of the show because they interact, but interacting in a negative malicious way is very disrespectful.”
During the same interview, Goldberg also called a fellow former Universal Champion “a joke”. You can read more about that story by clicking here.
