Although one of the most iconic superstars of the modern era, Goldberg has had a lot of criticism during his long career. The 55-year-old from Tulsa was in fact 'reprimanded' for his excessive remuneration, as well as having received too many titled chances according to fans.
Bill 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 and in 2018 he joined the WWE Hall of Fame.
'Da Man' scored 322 victories out of 376 matches played, remaining unbeaten for 460 consecutive days. Guest on the latest edition of the 'Talk Is Jericho' podcast, Goldberg talked about his relationship with Triple H.
The 14-time world champion was put in charge of the creative team after Vince McMahon's sensational farewell.
Goldberg on Triple H
"I must confess that Triple H and I didn't get along very well in the past. There was a certain animosity, also due to his friendship with Kevin Nash and Scott Hall.
Let's say our relationship was full of ups and downs” - revealed Goldberg, who said he was willing to return to WWE in the future. His last match dates back to last February when he faced Roman Reigns at Elimination Chamber.
"I am still under contract with WWE and I hope they will call me someday. From my point of view, a wrestler's career ends only when he dies. They might call me tomorrow, but I may also never get that call. In any case, I will be ready”.
Bill's physique has to deal with the passage of time: “The condition of my shoulder has deteriorated over the past four or five years. I work hard every single day to feel normal again. I needed a break and I am doing everything possible to recover without having to resort to surgery”.
All that remains is to wait for new updates on his future. Goldberg believes he has apologized enough for the botched kick that ultimately resulted in a WWE icon’s retirement. “There was absolutely no malicious intent whatsoever.
None. Zero. So, does it bother me? Yeah, I’ll take it to my grave. But, also, I’ve gotta say, man, and I’m at a turning point, I’m done saying I’m sorry. I’ve said it a million times and I’m not gonna continue to tear myself down.
I’m done. I’ve said I’m sorry. If he can’t accept my apology, it is what it is. You’ve gotta move on, and I’ve moved on”.
