Despite having received a lot of criticism over the years, it is undeniable that Goldberg made wrestling history. 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 with Bret Hart.
In 2018, he was inducted with full merit into the WWE Hall of Fame. Bill was best known for his quick matches, which allowed him not to squeeze his physique too much and to have a very long career. Suffice it to say that the 55-year-old from Tulsa has achieved 322 wins out of 376 matches played and has remained undefeated for 460 consecutive days.
During that time, he won 173 matches in a row. A few days ago, the former Universal champion revealed that he is still under contract with WWE and hopes for a new call. In the latest edition of the 'Hall of Fame' podcast, Booker T praised Goldberg for preserving his body so well.
Booker T speaks about Goldberg
“Goldberg has often been criticized without his career being thoroughly analyzed. Despite being 55, he is still in perfect shape. This is not a secondary detail in this business. This is the reason that pushes the WWE to offer him still a lot of money to get in the ring" - explained Booker T.
“If we turn our attention to my good friend Kurt Angle, we find a completely different situation. He has had a lot of injuries and his physique continues to give him problems. I really wish him the best of luck. Angle has had a very long career in this business, which lasted for about 20 years, but now he is paying the consequences” - added the two-time WWE Hall of Famer.
Booker T also talked about Paige's future: “Saraya has said goodbye to the character of Paige, at least for the moment. Her WWE career didn't last long, but she was still very successful. I wouldn't be surprised to see her again in Stamford in a few years”.
Goldberg was relatively new, and Bischoff felt that his inexperience didn't make the WCW officials' job any easier. "That's a tough one. I think on a consistent basis; it would have been Bill Goldberg. Not necessarily in a bad way.
Just that, Bill was a very intense person. Emotional, and didn't have a lot of experience, and was pretty uncomfortable in a pro wrestling environment when he first got there."
