Big E: I Never Really Thought I Would Get The Goldberg Match, But It's Very Possible

Big E could possibly slap meat with Goldberg.

Big E famously named Goldberg as his dream match because he's all about the big meaty men slapping meat. While the dream match never seemed quite possible, now that Big E is the WWE Champion and Goldberg is still active, it's closer to reality than ever before.

"When I talk about the Goldberg match, I never really thought I was going to get the Goldberg match. Never," Big E told Sam Roberts on NotSam Wrestling. "When I first started talking about it, I was doing tag stuff, I hadn't done much singles stuff and Goldberg was always in that world. I never really thought it was going to happen, but, it's possible. It's very possible. It's possibly on the table. I don't know how I could turn down just one night, one match. I met this man in the 90s, took a picture with him, stood in line on my way to church with my dad in the late 90s. He was my guy. The fact that he's still around and under contract with WWE, just had an issue with Bobby Lashley, and I now have his title, it's my title now. Why not? Why the hell not? Just for little kid me. It's very possible and making me blush a little."

Goldberg recently battled Bobby Lashley at WWE SummerSlam. The match was stopped when Goldberg was injured, but he has vowed revenge on Lashley.

As for Big E, he teamed with New Day to battle The Bloodline on WWE Raw. If you missed anything from WWE check out Fightful's full report on the show by clicking here.
