Can you blame him? The Royal Rumble is this weekend and the show is going to be headlined by a WWE Championship match with Drew McIntyre defending against Goldberg. This is quite the showdown, even though some fans might not be the most thrilled with the match. Goldberg has a bit of a reputation in WWE and it started with one match in particular. Now we know a bit more about what he thinks of it.
WrestleMania 36 in 2020 was the most unique WrestleMania of all time. Not only was the show held over two nights, but it was held in front of no fans due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The show went on anyway, though not exactly as originally scheduled. One of the bigger matches was changed up and it turns out that one of the wrestlers involved was not pleased.
Goldberg was recently interviewed by Fox Sports and discussed his WrestleMania 36 match against Braun Strowman. Goldberg said that the entire experience was “miserable”, due to a combination of the Coronavirus, the change from Roman Reigns to Strowman less than two weeks before the show and the last minute changes to all of the plans. Part of the problem was changing the size of his opponent, as Goldberg had not been training for someone of Strowman’s size and weight. Ultimately, Goldberg said he wanted to forget the whole thing. He did not blame WWE for the situation, but rather the circumstances around it.
There is a lot here. Check out the rather interesting interview:
Opinion: I can’t say I blame Goldberg for being annoyed at the situation because it was unlike anything anyone had ever seen. Everything was turned upside down at the last minute and no, Goldberg was not given the chance to prepare for such a match. He and Strowman did what they could and it isn’t fair to blame them for what happened, but it was quite different than what anyone would have bet on.
