Kevin Nash takes a shot at Goldberg

Goldberg is undoubtedly one of the most popular and controversial performers of the modern era. The 55-year-old from Tulsa has in fact often been criticized for his very rich salaries and for the excessive titled chances he has received in recent years.
In addition to being a four-time world champion, he was also two-time WCW United States Champion and one-time WCW World Tag Team Champion alongside Bret Hart. In 2003, he was recognized as the first undefeated world champion in the history of this business.
During his long career, Bill scored 322 wins out of 376 matches played, remaining undefeated for 460 consecutive days. During that time, he is said to have won 173 matches in a row. However, there have been numerous discussions about the veracity of this statistic.
A while ago, Chris Jericho claimed Goldberg's 173-0 record had been inflated. In the latest edition of his 'Kliq This' podcast, six-time world champion Kevin Nash expressed his opinion on the matter.
Kevin Nash slams Goldberg
"I don't know exactly how many consecutive victories Goldberg has obtained, but that 173-0 does not seem to me a credible record" - said Kevin Nash bluntly.
"His number of wins was almost certainly inflated, also because we weren't performing that much at the time," Kevin added. Speaking to Sportskeeda, former WWE and WCW writer Vince Russo criticized Bill: “I've always been a huge Beatles fan.
They are tattooed on my body permanently and will stay forever in my heart. At the same time, I find it horrifying that Paul McCartney continues to tour at his age. 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 certainly is doing some damage to his legacy. The same goes for Goldberg”. The former Universal Champion has revealed that he is still under contract with WWE and is willing to return to the ring.
EC3 has given his thoughts on Goldberg making sporadic WWE appearances at the age of 55. “In this moment in this time, I feel those guys put such a high level of expectation for perfection on them when physically you’re 55, you can’t do what you used to do,” EC3 said.
“To try to conform and work to a style that’s infected the industry, the same bubble we’re all working in, they try to do that, too, because they see that’s what’s getting reactions, or they’re in the locker room and that’s how everyone’s acting”.
