Goldberg Talks to WWE About His Brock Lesnar Match, If He Has Another Match Left, More
The WWE website just spoke with Bill Goldberg about being included in the WWE 2K17 video game. The full interview is at this link and details are below:
WWE.COM: How did you find out that you were 2K’s choice for this WWE 2K17 exclusive?
GOLDBERG: I just got the phone call. It was something that we had been in talks off and on over a number of years. As a father and an ex-wrestler, it’s a dream come true. To be able to come back and be included in WWE 2K17, it’s a huge honor. That the people would even want me back after such a long hiatus is another honor.
WWE.COM: Do you consider your WWE tenure a success?
GOLDBERG: Hell yeah, it was successful. I got paid and I put smiles on people’s faces, so I don’t think you can say that it wasn’t a success by any stretch of the imagination. At the end of the day, leaving WrestleMania, having my hand raised, beating Brock Lesnar… I’d say it was a pretty successful tenure.
WWE.COM: How do you feel about your match with Brock Lesnar as being your last match in WWE to date?
GOLDBERG: We were behind the eight ball from the beginning. What could have been arguably the most vicious and intense match that WWE or any wrestling ring has ever seen, bar none, the potential for that match was not reached by any question. People knew that we were both leaving, so what do you expect? I may have acted the same way as the fans. I don’t blame them one bit.
There were some good moments from [the match]. Any time I get in the ring with Brock Lesnar and go toe-to-toe and have some fun … I’m an athlete, bro. I’m a competitor; that’s what I do till the day I die. I’m going to be that guy.
WWE.COM: Do you think you have one more match in you?
GOLDBERG: I’ve got 50 more in me. It just depends on the ability to keep it up to my standards. I love everybody to death and I greatly appreciate their opinions, but none of it matters except for mine, because I hold myself to such high standards.
The reality is, you’ve got movies, TV appearances, a kid, you’re 49 years old … things aren’t like they used to be. It’s a completely different day. I’m 20 to 30 pounds less than what I was because I just don’t need to be that dude with traps from his ears to his shoulders. Would I like to be that guy again? Absolutely. He’s still in there.
