While speaking to Digital Spy, Paul Heyman revealed that the reason he is inducting Bill Goldberg into the 2018 WWE Hall of Fame class is because Goldberg apparently asked him to do so.

“I am inducting Goldberg because that was Bill Goldberg’s specific request to WWE. Bill Goldberg personally requested that I induct him into the Hall of Fame. I have such respect for Goldberg as so far the one person who has truly taken the fight to Brock Lesnar in WWE.”

Heyman would then explain how he believes Goldberg’s victory over Lesnar at Survivor Series was a crowning moment of Goldberg’s career.

“And there is an entire audience of WWE fans that will tell you that Goldberg’s match with Lesnar at Survivor Series, which Bill won in a minute and a half, was the crowning moment of Bill Goldberg’s career.

That the true story of Goldberg wasn’t just his rampage through the ranks in WCW and then his brief run in WWE, but the fact that 12 years after he had ever stepped into a ring he came back in top form, probably better than ever, at the peak of his game as a completely different man, but not a different character. To many, that was the crowning achievement of Goldberg”
