Goldberg is arguably one of the most popular and controversial superstars to ever set foot in the WWE ring. The four-time world champion achieved 313 victories out of 365 matches played, as well as being unbeaten for a total of 456 days in a row between 1997 and 1998.
Bill has a contract that binds him to WWE until 2023, in which a couple of matches a year are planned. After taking on Drew McIntyre at the Royal Rumble, the Tulsa veteran made his return to the ring in the post-Money in the Bank episode of Raw.
Goldberg started a very heated rivalry with Bobby Lashley, which culminated in 'The All Mighty' attacking Gage (Bill's son) at SummerSlam. The showdown between the two will take place at Crown Jewel, the highly anticipated event scheduled in Saudi Arabia this Thursday.
Working with Goldberg was not an easy experience for all the superstars on the roster, as Matt Riddle can tell. In a recent interview with Sony Sports India, the RK-Bro member made no secret of having a very different wrestling philosophy from Bill's.
Riddle opens up on Goldberg
"I had some interactions with Goldberg and I immediately realized how different we were from each other" - began Riddle, who has been the protagonist of a vehement rise in the last year. “Bill is convinced that a couple of spectacular moves are enough to make matches beautiful and become one of the best in the world.
My philosophy is that you have to be good at everything: you have to be able to speak, you have to be able to interact with the public and you have to be complete in the ring. We have two wrestling philosophies that couldn't be further apart” - he added.
Speaking on the 'CarCast' podcast, Goldberg provided some updates on his knee injury. “The knee is much better and I should be able to recover in time for Crown Jewel. I think already now my conditions would be enough to destroy Bobby Lashley." Riddle was backstage when Goldberg was about to go out.
He spoke about his interaction with the legend and, by the sounds of it, the two no longer have heat. Riddle also revealed what Goldberg told him backstage after the segment: "Bill Goldberg is extremely entertaining, I can't take anything away from that but I'll tell you this, I saw Bill the other day before he challenged Bobby Lashley and he was walking to the Gorilla Position and I was standing there and I was with Damian Priest at the time and he says hi to everybody and then Goldberg comes up to me gives me a look."
