WWE Hall Of Famer Goldberg’s contributions to the pro wrestling world do not need any introduction. Goldberg truly became a household name during his time in WCW. Goldberg previously admitted that he regretted not appreciating pro wrestling in the past.
On the other hand, Hulk Hogan remains one of the most popular pro wrestlers in the world of professional wrestling, with his influence in the business never being understated. However, his troubled past concerning racism has ultimately led to his downfall. Seth Rollins also doesn’t think he’s a good human being.
The two have worked together numerous times in WCW, as they were part of the promotion’s biggest storylines. Many believed Hogan used Goldberg to his advantage in WCW, but it seems that isn’t the case.
While speaking on his 83 Weeks podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Eric Bischoff shut down rumors that Hulk Hogan used Goldberg to his advantage. He then added that Hogan took Goldberg under his wing.
“I know for a fact that Hulk Hogan was a very, very big supporter of Bill Goldberg. One of the reasons why I ultimately had such a difficult time with Goldberg was due in no small part to the fact that Hulk was in his ear and essentially guiding him. I understand that you know because hulk knew that Goldberg was special. He also knew that Goldberg was inexperienced in the wrestling industry. Never had been in it, he was still new and unsure of himself in some respects. Not when it came to physicality – he was very confident in himself.
And Hulk, I would say, to a degree, under his wing, including getting Bill the same attorney that Hulk had, Henry Halls. And once Henry started managing Bill or representing Bill, things got difficult very fast, and that’s in no small part due to Hulk Hogan’s influence on Bill Goldberg to help protect him. So this nefarious kind of scheming and planning as it relates to Bill Goldberg, at least by Hulk, I don’t think so. I genuinely believe that Hulk would have never manipulated Goldberg into a situation that was not a good situation for Bill. I wouldn’t believe that at all.”
Goldberg was last seen at WWE Crown Jewel, where he defeated Bobby Lashley in a singles match. We will have to wait and see when he will make his return to WWE television.
