Goldberg is back in the title hunt and the last time that he was in this position, he came under heavy criticism.
Goldberg defeated “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt to win the WWE Universal Championship at the Super ShowDown pay-per-view event in February 2020. As a result of this win, it gave Wyatt’s Fiend character his first loss.
The decision by WWE was considered by many to be one of the worst booking decisions of the entire year due to Goldberg being past his prime and a part-time star.
While doing an interview with FOX Sports, he was asked about this. Ironically, when WCW ended Goldberg’s streak, it was heavily criticized.
“You know, again, at the end of the day, Ryan, I do a job, right? I’m asked to go out and perform, and I don’t pass judgment on it. I don’t worry about a finish. I don’t worry about who’s winning. I don’t worry about who’s losing. At the end of the day, I’m there to provide a service, and I do it with a smile on my face either way. And I’m not a booker. I don’t make the decisions. I really don’t. I just come in and provide “that guy,” and the only thing I can do in a situation like that is be the best package that they remember.”
Goldberg also talked about challenging Drew McIntyre for the WWE Title at the Royal Rumble, and more. Check out the full interview here.
