Goldberg On Wanting To Wrestle Cain Velasquez: "I'd Still Smash Him In The Ring"

Goldberg would be up to wrestle newly-minted pro wrestler Cain Velasquez.

The WWE Hall of Famer spoke with Helen Yee and was asked about the former UFC champion's journey into professional wrestling after making his debut at AAA's TripleMania show back in August. Velasquez turned heads with some of the moves he performed in the match and Goldberg said he is happy to see him make the transition.

"Cain's doing great. I saw a little bit of the coverage of his match. Put it this way, anyone in professional sports who was in that sport, [wrestling's] a great alternative... It's a perfect transition for Cain Velasquez. I'm not going to say it was easy [for Velasquez], but it was easier than someone who's never done anything like that before. It's nice to see a guy like that face adversity in one's business and pleasure in another," Goldberg said.

But that doesn't stop Goldberg from saying that he would not only wrestle Velasquez, he would "smash him in the ring." Goldberg, who last wrestled at SummerSlam 2019, said WWE would welcome Velasquez.

"I'd still smash him in the ring. I'd wrestle Cain in the ring in two seconds. I'll wrestle anybody, you know who I am. Cain's got a lot of potential," Goldberg said.

Velasquez's second pro wrestling match takes place on the AAA show at the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden on September 15. The full interview between Goldberg and Yee can be seen in the video at the top of the page.
