Goldberg: Vince McMahon Never Gave Me My Retirement Match, He's A Piece Of Shit

Goldberg gives his thoughts on Vince McMahon.

Goldberg had multiple stints in WWE during his career, and while his initial run from 2003 to 2004 wasn't fondly remembered he did return on better terms in 2016 for multiple runs as WWE Universal Champion and a Hall of Fame induction.

Speaking on Steven & Captain Evil, Goldberg was asked for his thoughts on Vince McMahon.

"Vince is like Dana White. He's the big boss and he makes everything happen, and in all honesty, he gave me the opportunity to put my wife and son on the front row and gave me the ability to perform again in front of them. So, I owe him everything, until we went to Saudi Arabia and he asked me to put Roman Reigns over, and I had COVID. I remember calling him from my house and said, 'Listen, here is the deal. I'll do it if you give me a retirement match.' I did what he asked. As a performer, I was 56 years old. As a human being, you're conscientious about how you look in a bathing suit, especially two months prior to being in that bathing suit, you couldn't work out because you had COVID. I put myself in a horribly shitty situation to get what I wanted to, but to satiate him and give him what he wanted. Problem is, he never held up his bargain. Vince is a piece of shit as far as I'm concerned," stated Goldberg.

Goldberg wrestled his last match for WWE and Elimination Chamber 2022, losing to Roman Reigns. It is unknown if Goldberg will have an official retirement match.

Elsewhere during the interview, Goldberg revealed that he tried to be part of Sting's retirement match. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
