Randy Orton is a true veteran in the pro wrestling world as he has competed in WWE for almost two decades. Like many fans growing up, Orton was a fan of pro wrestlers from that time and that includes Goldberg, who was a massive star in WCW during the 90s.

While speaking on The Kurt Angle Show, Randy Orton told a funny story of when he tried to get a Goldberg’s tribal tattoo when he was 18. Despite his mother being against the idea, Orton went  to the tattoo studio with a picture of Goldberg’s design in 1998.

Orton wouldn’t get the tattoo and the Viper stated that he was glad the tattoo artist talked him out of it.

“So, it was 1998. Huge Goldberg fan. I used to get together with all my buddies, and we were watching the undefeated streak as it took place and just pumped, right? So, I turned 18, and I wanted a tattoo. Mom said no tattoos. And, umm, you can probably guess where this is going. So, now that I’m 18 and I’m a huge Goldberg mark. I go to the tattoo spot and the tattoo artist, I tell him, I say, ‘I want this tattoo, and it was a picture out of a magazine,”

A Goldberg tribal f****** tattoo. So, let’s see. I didn’t get it. I didn’t get it, but if you look, I’ve got some symmetrical-looking tribal here that I’ve kind of messed with over the years, and what that started out as was the idea that it was going to be a duplicate of Goldberg’s tattoo. And the tattoo artist was like, ‘Oh, you don’t want to put another guy’s tattoo on your arm.’ And looking back, it’s like, ‘Thanks, tattoo artist.’ Holy s***!”

Goldberg last competed at the Royal Rumble, where he was unable to defeat Drew McIntyre to win the WWE Championship. We will have to see when he will make his WWE return.
