Goldberg: The Guerrero Family Had A Huge Impact On Me, They Took Time To Make Sure I Knew The Basics

Goldberg comments on the impact the Guerrero family had on him.

Goldberg made his in-ring debut in 1997 in WCW as a highly touted prospect coming off his NFL career. By that point, Eddie Guerrero had been wrestling for a decade, honing his craft all over the world. The two men took different paths to stardom, and Goldberg credits Eddie for his kindness in his career.

"That Guerrero family had such a huge impact on me when I was coming up. They would take the time, unlike others, who felt threatened, they would take the time to make sure I knew the basics. Whether it was Eddie or Chavo. Chavo was great with me. The entire family, I have nothing but found memories with all of our interactions. In this day and age, a lot of people have ulterior motives. That family never had an ulterior motive, just an effort to make you better than you were before. That, you have to take your hat off to and cover your heart for, and you have to be appreciative that you run into people with such good character," Goldberg said on the Alamo City Podcast.

Goldberg never wrestled Eddie Guerrero, but did have a couple of matches against Chavo Guerrero.

Eddie was the subject of WWE Legends A&E Biography on Sunday.
