Goldberg on ‪a possible ‪WWE‬ Return, Lesnar returning to UFC, more

Jul 11, 2016 - by Steve Gerweck

Bill Goldberg‬ recently spoke with Jim Varsallone of The Miami Herald to promote his new movie, Check Point.

Here are the highlights.

On his involvement in ‪‎WWE2K17‬:

“Is it [a] precursor to me doing something else with WWE in the future? That’s not for me to say. I can’t speak for them, but as far as I’m concerned, this wasn’t my way to weasel into another match. If it happens, it happens. If it doesn’t happen, so be it.”

On Brock Lesnar fighting Mark Hunt at ‪UFC‬ 200:

“If you look at the UFC business model, they’ve always professed that they put the best fighters out there, and I’m not saying this because we’re talking about Brock. I’m saying this as an example. The best fighters out there on the planet are the ones they want to put in front of the cameras for people to see. If you look at what [Scott] Coker does at Bellator, they’ve been getting some unbelievable ratings, but those rating aren’t for the guys who have the best records.

“So we’re seeing Dana White pull a little Vince McMahon, pull a little swerve, untraditional programming for himself, realizing that Brock Lesnar is the biggest draw in [MMA] pay-per-view history I would imagine. So I think it’s a very smart business move. I think it’s great for [UFC] and WWE. I think it’s a cool cross-promotion that people never saw coming.”
