WWE Hall of Famer Bill Goldberg was interviewed by The New York Post where he explained how bad he feels for 2018 Royal Rumble winner Asuka after her undefeated streak ended. He also clarified if he would wrestle again.
Goldberg was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame just weeks ago, with a fantastic speech to pull him into the spotlight. As he prepares to bring his new series “Forged in Fire: Knife or Death” to the History Channel, he made sure to stop by The New York Post to discuss wrestling.
Goldberg first discussed the ‘Empress of Tomorrow’ facing Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania 34 for the SmackDown Women’s Championship and losing, ending her undefeated streak:
“It’s so hard. I felt bad for her. It’s a really cool accomplishment. It’s unbelievable, but there comes a time when you kind of question its tenure and when is it the right time to break it. Who is the right person to break it? I think it was done properly. I do. Perhaps the pressure has been taken off of her. There was a lot of pressure on me at the end of the streak.”
Goldberg also explained whether he would wrestle again, as many fans have took to social media to request he faces guys like Roman Reigns and Rusev in matches:
“If I never stepped in the ring again, I’m content, dude. I’m completely at peace. I really am. Would I like to do it again? Who knows. It would have to be the right fit. I’d love to do it again for my son [Gage]. Let’s be honest. Everybody knows that. But at the end of the day, you have to be smart about it.
“There’s no question it would have to be the right opponent. What I was able to accomplish last year was really special, and I don’t want to take anything away from that by any stretch of the imagination, devalue my place in the Hall of Fame and my stature to the fans.”
