Roman Reigns says Goldberg may regret giving him ideas.
Goldberg, a star in WCW and WWE from 1996 to 2004, used a spear as one of his signature maneuvers. Reigns, who uses the spear as his finisher, has been juxtaposed with Goldberg since the former returned to wrestling in October. On a recent episode of Raw, both men speared Braun Strowman.
Recently in an interview on the podcast Cheap Heat, Reigns recounted a story of Goldberg discussing his unused ideas from his glory years and the difference between the two stars:
“We had one little brief instance where he mentioned a couple different ideas that he had that he just didn’t get to use back in his day. But it seems like his days aren’t numbered. He seems like he’s doing well and thriving, so I’m sure he’s going to have an opportunity to use [the ideas]. I think he’s probably regretting giving me ideas, but I believe everybody does things their way. I like the level I take my performance. I like my athleticism. I like the way I perform my moves. If you don’t, then don’t watch. It’s that simple. But, either way, I like the difference in the spears. I think it’s important that there are a variety of different looks and different characters and just different situations. And that’s what makes the WWE special, is that it’s a circus."
The interview was recorded during the build to Sunday's WWE Royal Rumble in San Antonio, where Reigns will be challenging for Kevin Owens' WWE Universal Championship. Goldberg will be in the Royal Rumble match along with Strowman and Brock Lesnar.
