Bill Goldberg: "I've Got 50 Matches Left In Me"
Following the announcement that he will be this year’s special bonus character in the WWE 2K17 video game, former WWE Superstar and WCW mega-star Bill Goldberg spoke with WWE.com. Below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On if he considers his past WWE run a success:
“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.”
On Brock Lesnar being the final opponent he faced in WWE:
“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.”
On if he feels he has another match left in him:
“I’ve got 50 more in me. It just depends on the ability to keep it up to my standards. … 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.”
