To commemorate the 20th Anniversary of his debut match in WCW, Goldberg has a new interview up at WWE.com.
Goldberg, of course, came back for a match vs Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series last November, then after his shocking squash victory, he entered the Royal Rumble, squashed Kevin Owens for the Universal Title at FastLane, and finally lost the belt to Brock at Wrestlemania. So in hindsight, how does he feel about his run?
“It was very rewarding, kind of full circle. Wrestling is wrestling. It is what it is, and we all are lucky enough at certain times to acquire this other character. I’m honored and privileged to have been that guy and to have had that opportunity to be the original guy. You know, no holds barred, what you see is what you get, speak straight from the heart and I’m gonna crush your face and rip your ears off. But hey, man, I was very honored to be able to be that guy again.”
WWE has released the full match of Goldberg's debut match against Hugh Morrus:
Goldberg was asked for his thoughts about his 20th Anniversary in wrestling.
“I’m friggin’ old, dude. [Laughs] Like I said, I’m one of the luckiest guys in the world. To be able to look back 20 years ago today when I have a beautiful wife and a beautiful son, and be able to share some memories with them in real time looking back on it, I’m one of the luckiest guys in the world. I couldn’t have done it without every single wrestler, coach, promoter and the fans. It’s one thing that people have always got to understand about me: I’m very appreciative of my position and I worked my a– off to get here.”
But the big question is this: Would he come back for another run?
“Ask your boss! [Laughs] Hey, man, never say never, dude. Stranger things have happened. I did sit [around] for 13 years and then suddenly appear back in the ring. Let’s just say it ain’t gonna take nearly the effort to get me ready again that it did last time. So, I’ll see you on the rebound for damn sure.”
