Vince Russo takes a shot at Goldberg

Goldberg is a four-time world champion, having won the WCW World Heavyweight Championship, the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and the Universal title twice. In 2003, he was recognized as the first undefeated world champion in wrestling history.

During his long and glorious career, he has achieved 322 victories out of 376 matches played, remaining undefeated for 460 consecutive days. In 2018, he was inducted with full merit into the WWE Hall of Fame. Since stepping back into the ring in 2016, Bill has engendered heated feuds with the likes of Roman Reigns and Bobby Lashley.

'The Icon' played his last match at The Elimination Chamber earlier this year, losing to the 'Tribal Chief' after a thrilling battle. The 55-year-old from Tulsa recently revealed that he is still under contract with WWE and that he would be willing to return if the company called him back.

Speaking to Sportskeeda, former WWE and WCW writer Vince Russo illustrated how all these comebacks have tarnished Goldberg's legacy.

Vince Russo slams Goldberg

“I've always been a huge Beatles fan. They are tattooed on my body permanently and will stay in my heart forever.

At the same time, I find it horrifying that Paul McCartney continues to tour at 80. I do nothing but wonder what's on his mind and why no one is suggesting that he stop. Being the last thing I will see of him, it will remain with me.

I don't know if Paul needs the money, but he's certainly doing enormous damage to his legacy. The same goes for Goldberg” - said Vince Russo. Two-time WWE Hall of Famer Booker T does not agree: “Despite being 55, Bill is still in top shape.

This is not a secondary detail in this business. This is the reason that pushes the WWE to still offer him so much money to get into the ring. An absolute legend like Kurt Angle is much worse off than him”. Recently, Goldberg has finally broken silence on allegedly changing the finish of his match against "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt.

"Let's put it this way. I've never said anything that wasn't true in the wrestling business. I'm a talent and I do what the boss tells me to do. I flew to Saudi Arabia knowing that I was gonna lose. Then somehow it changed and the finish was different.

And it surely wasn't me. Because it's an extremely selfish move, number one, to do. Number two, then truly it wouldn't be about the business, it would be about myself."
