WWE Hall Of Famer Goldberg is a legend in the pro wrestling business, especially making a name for himself during WCW. Goldberg previously admitted that he regretted not appreciating pro wrestling in the past. He is back and vying for the WWE Championship at SummerSlam, but he also wants to improve the company along the way.
Over the past few years, many fans have been highly critical of Goldberg coming in and burying established talent and killing their momentum, including the likes of Kevin Owens and Bray Wyatt. We’ll have to see how Bobby Lashley looks after he collides with Goldberg on August 21st.
While speaking to Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, Goldberg talked about wanting to give back to the industry that helped make him the star that he is today and added that he wants to elevate WWE talents to the next level.
“I was fortunate to run through the wrestling world like a hot knife through butter in my career, and then I was gone. Serving the business is a responsibility. That includes getting b**ts in seats and making sure people invest in the product, but it also means you have to give back. I didn’t always do that before. But that’s my duty, and that’s a big reason why I am here. I owe the business a lot more than I have given. I can provide a star like Bobby Lashley a worthy adversary. I need to come back for that reason.
There is also a plethora of talent that I believe is on the cusp of stardom, and I am here to help elevate them to the next level. As long as I can still provide something as this character, I’m willing to take these opportunities, because these chances pale in comparison to the payoff. The payoff is not monetary or glory-driven. It’s a chance to provide moments with my family that are few and far between in this world.”
Goldberg is set to square off against Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship at the WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view. We will have to wait and see who will win the match in the end.
