The feud between Goldberg and Roman Reigns will not die.
Goldberg and Reigns were set to clash at WrestleMania 36 before Reigns pulled out of the event over health concerns at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Braun Strowman replaced Reigns and the match between Goldberg and Reigns never took place.
And that still angers the former WWE Universal Champion.
"I’m always going to have that ingrained hatred for him by playing football 60 minutes away from where I played football with Georgia," Goldberg told Fox Sports. "And by the hatred we had for Georgia Tech, it’s just one of those things that people don’t understand it and it’s one of the best back stories professional wrestling could ever have. Because there are two schools that I cannot stand. I cannot stand the colors. I may be 54 years old, 34 years removed from when I was playing football against them, but anything from Georgia Tech and anything from the University of Florida makes me want to vomit, okay? So, Roman Reigns, knowing that he wore that helmet and that uniform, I want to take him apart for no other reason. Not to mention the fact that he spears people. Well, he tries to spear people and it is what it is. People don’t get it unless they’re sports people. But, I cannot stand those two schools and he went to one of them, and I can’t stand Roman Reigns. We don’t have Gatorade in my house for God’s sake!"
Goldberg and Reigns often draw comparisons as the two perform the Spear as one of their signature moves.
When asked about Reigns' spear, Goldberg replied, "He’s doing the best of his ability and I’m doing mine to the best of my ability. He does it like a moron from Georgia Tech, and I do it like a bulldog from Georgia. Period. End of story. If you’re gonna do your signature move, you’re going to move people’s organs. But, beside, I haven’t hurt that many people. I really haven’t. And I’ve been doing it for a long, long time, right? So, I must be a pretty damn good performer to keep everybody safe when it looks like I’m killing ‘em. So, take that Roman Reigns. Shove that up your Georgia Tech whatever the hell you got."
Goldberg is set to challenge Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship on Sunday at WWE Royal Rumble. Meanwhile, Reigns will defend the Universal Title against Kevin Owens in a Last Man Standing match.
