Goldberg Speaks Out On Being Inducted Into The WWE Hall of Fame, The Aftermath Of His WrestleMania 33 Match

Goldberg never thought he'd be in the Hall of Fame, yet here we are.

Speaking to Booker T on his podcast Heated Conversations, Goldberg was rather blunt when asked if he ever thought he would be a part of WWE's Hall of Fame.

"Hell no!" he said. "Let’s be perfectly honest man. You asked me and I answered it. You lived right next to me for a long period of time. I think it’s a shock to a lot of people. I think that by Brock making them bring me back and by them giving me the opportunity I maybe showed a little bit of something worthy of an accolade of some sort."

One of the main driving factors in his return to WWE was a match between him and Brock Lesnar at last year's WrestleMania. Goldberg talked about how his body handled being thrown around in such fashion after years off the road and a decade or so older.

"Being older, how did I feel afterwards?" he said. "I think my groin turned black. The back of my right leg turned black I think like two weeks after Mania. I think my body was in shock. I was ready to go that night and I was waiting for Brock to hit me with like ten more suplexes. I was amped. If there was ever a time I realized a good formula it was that night. I was so relaxed."

There is one drawback to being in a Hall of Fame, and it's the notion that the best years are already behind you. Goldberg knows this, but at the same time doesn't dismiss a return to the ring someday.

"The only negative to it is that it kind of makes you feel mortal," he said. "That’s all. I don’t like there to ever be an end to anything. As long as I’ve got two feet and walk and kick and punch with my hands there is always a possibility that I’ll headbutt someone to sleep."

Goldberg will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on April 6 during WrestleMania 34 weekend in New Orleans.
