In a discussion on the Steven & Captain Evil podcast, Goldberg shared his thoughts on Vince McMahon.
“Vince is like Dana White. He’s the big boss and he makes everything happen, and in all honesty, he gave me the opportunity to put my wife and son on the front row and gave me the ability to perform again in front of them. So, I owe him everything, until we went to Saudi Arabia and he asked me to put Roman Reigns over, and I had COVID. I remember calling him from my house and said, ‘Listen, here is the deal. I’ll do it if you give me a retirement match.’ I did what he asked,” Goldberg said.
“As a performer, I was 56 years old. As a human being, you’re conscientious about how you look in a bathing suit, especially two months prior to being in that bathing suit, you couldn’t work out because you had COVID. I put myself in a horribly shitty situation to get what I wanted to, but to satiate him and give him what he wanted. Problem is, he never held up his bargain. Vince is a piece of shit as far as I’m concerned,” Goldberg continued.
Known for his legendary undefeated streak in WCW, Goldberg made his way to the WWE in 2003. He made his presence felt instantly, spearing The Rock on Raw. He would then win the World Heavyweight Championship from Triple H at Unforgiven in 2003. However, his reign was short-lived, as he lost the title to Triple H at Armageddon later that year.
After a brief hiatus, Goldberg returned to the WWE in 2016, where he had memorable feuds with Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker. He also won the Universal Championship twice, defeating Kevin Owens and “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt.
