WWE Hall of Famer Bill Goldberg was recently interviewed by the Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling Podcast. You can see the full interview at this link, and submitted highlights courtesy of the Two Man Power Trip below.
His new History Channel project Forged In Fire: Knife or Death:
"It is something that is not out of the norm for me taking on things that I am not an expert at and try to sound like I know what I am talking about. It has given me a great opportunity to learn about something that I am not an expert at like I said. I kind of feed off of the people that are around me, the weapons expert and the blade expert and we've kind of got the best of everybody in each given discipline and I try to tie it all together with a little bit of excitement and heck, my wife is a blacksmith and now I can have a conversation with my wife about forging knives. If I don't gain anything at least I can talk at the dinner table coherently with my wife about that process."
What made him want to join this show:
"Part of me as a human being likes a challenge and it is something that wasn't in my wheelhouse at the beginning but in a sense it was in that I have an extensive knowledge of the martial arts with body movement and a physical application when it comes to violence or violent acts, I think I have a little bit of experience there and it is a really cool format."
What viewers can expect every week:
“It is not only a history lesson but it is visually spectacular like the Ninja Warriors is. You get your elements of back story and knowledge about the blade and forging and you get the violent act and the real time aspect of people running through a competition with two "type A" alpha males commentating on it in real time and showing their natural reaction. I think it is a pretty cool combination of a lot of things to make it work and like my wrestling career it is dependent upon a lot of moving parts and whether it is the guy who creates it, the guys who present it or the guys who film it or ultimately the people that run the course it is a team effort. It is a lot of fun being a part of that team."
