Goldberg made the history of modern wrestling, despite having received numerous criticisms throughout his career. In addition to being a four-time world champion, he was also a two-time WCW United States Champion and one-time WCW World Tag Team Champion alongside Bret Hart.
According to official statistics, he scored 322 victories out of 376 matches played and remained undefeated for 460 consecutive days. In 2018, he was inducted with full merit into the WWE Hall of Fame. The WWE and WCW legend gave a long interview to Shakiel Mahjouri for 'SHAK Wrestling', in which he touched on a myriad of topics related to his career.
Goldberg praises Bron Breakker
At one point in the conversation, Goldberg was asked if he has already identified his heir: “Of course he has. It's about Bron Breakker” - replied Bill without hesitation. 'Da Man' also returned to his controversial victory over Bray Wyatt at Super ShowDown: “I'm a performer and I do what the boss tells me to do.
I landed in Saudi Arabia thinking I was going to lose that match. Then - suddenly - everything changed and I was told that I would be the winner. Unlike what you read around, it wasn't me who asked for the ending of that meeting to be changed.
I'm not that selfish”. Goldberg replied to those accusing him of ending Bret Hart's career: “When such an incident occurs, people tend to believe only the victim's version. No one will ever try to understand my point of view.
I will take that episode to my grave because I'm sure Bret will never forgive me. What else can I add? I've said countless times that I'm so sorry and that I didn't do it on purpose, but Hart continues to argue otherwise. He thinks I intentionally ruined his career”.
The 55-year-old from Tulsa has often been criticized by fans for his excessive payouts and for the countless titled chances he has been granted. WWE legend Road Dogg, whose real name Brian James, shared his thoughts on the infamous match between Bray Wyatt and Goldberg.
"I know this will get me a lot of heat from the hardcore wrestling fans, but Goldberg is a big deal. To imagine Bray Wyatt as a formidable opponent for Goldberg, that's a rub, man. That feels pretty good if I'm Bray [Wyatt], and I bet he got paid.
Having said that, you're correct. His losing to Seth and then him losing to Goldberg, he was moving downwards quickly. I don't know I wasn't up there then, I was at NXT by then so I don't really remember."
