Goldberg is certainly a legend in the pro wrestling business, especially making a name for himself during WCW. He has a longstanding relationship with Vince McMahon, but most of it has been negative. Things have soured between them again as Goldberg claimed WWE talent had to feed McMahon’s ego to get ideas across.

Goldberg debuted in WWE back in 2003, instantly demolishing The Rock and making an impact. He wouldn’t stay for long as the WWE Hall of Famer left the promotion right after WrestleMania 20 in 2004.

Goldberg made his return to WWE back in 2016 after a hiatus of 12 years. Since then, he has won several titles, was involved in various high-profile matches and made a ton of money in the process.

Even then, Goldberg and Vince McMahon’s relationship has never been the best. While speaking on the Steve & Captain Evil: The PodcastGoldberg talked about working in WCW and WWE. Goldberg then claimed that WWE talent had to feed Vince McMahon’s ego to get ideas across in the company.


The best way that I can describe is the WCW was run by the inmates. You got Kevin Nash, you got Scott Hall, you got Hulk Hogan, and on the other flipside of the coin you have the 800-pound gorilla whose name is Vince McMahon.

As long as you go in to Vince and make sure every idea you have sounds like it came from his mouth, you’re good.”

Goldberg also blasted the former WWE Chairman for denying him his retirement match and accused McMahon of making false promises about his retirement match. Goldberg also revealed his attempt to be part of Sting’s retirement match. Only time will tell whether Goldberg will ever get his retirement match as the match was not concern for WWE.

What’s your view on what Goldberg had to say? Do you feel he is right in this claim? Let us know in the comments!
