Can’t we all just get along? Wrestlers are tasked with a rather difficult trick: pretend to fight each other and convince everyone else that what they are seeing is real. It is a hard trick to pull off but the right people doing it the right way can work well. At the same time, there are instances where the issues are a little more real backstage. That was the case again recently, but it could have been worse.

During an interview with Sony Sports India by way of, WWE star Riddle spoke about his real life backstage altercations with Goldberg. The two have had issues before due to some comments that Riddle has made about Goldberg’s wrestling as well as calling him “bro”. Goldberg was back on Monday Night Raw in July and ran into Riddle before his segment. The two exchanged pleasantries with Goldberg congratulating Riddle on his success. Riddle described Goldberg as nice and the two spoke again briefly after Goldberg’s segment.

These two have a complicated relationship. Check out what caused some of the problems and a look at both of them in the ring:

FULL MATCH - Goldberg vs. Dolph Ziggler: SummerSlam 2019

Riddle vs. John Morrison: Raw, July 26, 2021

Opinion: It’s nice to see that the two of them have come close to patching things up, or at least gotten to the point where they can be cordial with one another. Riddle has a tendency to not be able to keep his mouth shut at times when he probably should, so at least he seems to be learning a bit. Goldberg is a bigger name that Riddle, despite not being around that often, and it probably isn’t worth it for Riddle to go after him.

What do you think of Goldberg’s time in WWE? What is next for Riddle? Let us know in the comments below.
