Goldberg’s contributions to the pro wrestling world do not need any introduction. The WWE Hall of Famer truly became a household name during his time in WCW. Goldberg previously admitted that he regretted not appreciating pro wrestling in the past. He also wanted to hurt Chris Jericho.
Bill Goldberg started his career back in the late 90s and cemented himself as an unstoppable force there. His legendary undefeated streak truly made him a star as well.
However, he also has a reputation for being an unsafe worker. While speaking on Talk Is Jericho, Goldberg talked about his bad reputation. Goldberg claimed that the person he ever wanted to hurt was Chris Jericho.
”The WCW thing we were doing, I was trying to get a match with you and we ended up culminating it in Nassau Coliseum. We never had the match, we finally ended it with you spearing me down the aisle. To this day, it’s still one of the most terrifying rides. ‘He’s already angry at me, he’s going to kill.’ Obviously, you didn’t, but that thing was fucking six feet down the damn ramp.
Remember Elimination Chamber, when I put you through the glass. If I didn’t care about you as a human being, I never would have picked the glass up off of you after. Those little things that people don’t see. They don’t get it. I could have hurt every single person I got in the ring with, and vice versa, everybody could have hurt me, at the end of the day, you try to be as professional as humanly possible and work for the betterment of the business.”
