Goldberg has noticed the constant booing Roman Reigns has received and does not understand why fans lash out at Reigns.
Before Goldberg defends his WWE Universal Championship against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 33, Goldberg sat down with Jim Ross on his podcast and complimented Reigns' work ethic. Goldberg also said Reigns gets hatred "for no reason whatsoever."
"It's a weird deal, man," Goldberg said. "Reading about it and hearing about it from afar, and then, being there and experiencing it, man, they've got such hatred towards this kid for no reason whatsoever. I mean, I see the reason, but people have to understand that you can't personally take it out on that guy because that guy is performing a job. He's doing what he's doing, but I think he's very entertaining. I think the kid can work his ass off."
Goldberg also talked about a number of other WWE wrestlers including Braun Strowman, who Goldberg said is every bit the monster that WWE is billing him as.
"Yeah, he's a monster, man," Goldberg said. "No question about it. I think them having him do 10, 15 minute matches is why they're saying, 'Goldberg, you need to do more than two moves'. But, hey, man, the guy [has] got unbelievable talent. I would do a couple of things differently if I were him or I was management, but I have imparted my knowledge to him and, hopefully, it won't be something that is frowned upon. I think the guy's an unbelievable talent and, hell, if properly taken care of, the sky's the limit."
WrestleMania is tonight, with the Kickoff Show starting at 5 pm est, and Fightful will have wall to wall coverage, including a Live post-show podcast.
