Goldberg is certainly 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.

Goldberg debuted in WWE back in 2003, instantly demolishing The Rock and making an impact. Prior to that, Goldberg was the biggest star in WCW.

While speaking to Roman Atwood, Goldberg detailed his first meeting with WWE prior to signing with WCW and revealed that he hired an agent prior to the meeting because he heard that Vince McMahon hated them.

I flew up to WWE and I met with them first. Jim Ross, who was a commentator, who was also living in Tulsa, Oklahoma when I was growing up and he covered me in High School Football. He worked for WWE and I picked up the phone and called him and said ‘Please, just get me an introduction.’ I went up and it was completely foreign to me. 

Oh no, Mr. McMahon hates agents,'” JR told Goldberg. “So I immediately thought ‘Ok, I gotta get one, right now.’ So I go in there and I meet with [Vince] and Jim Ross, and they offer me a training deal, and I flew back to Atlanta and I called the owner or the President of WCW.” It was Eric Bischoff.”

We’ll have to see when Goldberg will be back. In the meantime, the WWE Hall of Famer certainly racked up a ton of memories and unforgettable moments.
