Bill Goldberg was interviewed by Scott Fishman of The Miami Herald to promote his appearance this weekend at Magic City Comic Con in Miami, Florida. Here are some highlights from the interview:
On possibly wrestling again:
“I could still do it… I’m probably in the best shape of my life right now…I made the statement that I would never consider wrestling over the age of 40 when I was over 40 years old. Here I am two clicks away from the big one (50). Having children changes your outlook 100 percent of your life. If it came to fruition, I would seriously consider it. With that said, it’s not going to stop my heart that I didn’t attain that by any stretch of the imagination.”
On CM Punk doing MMA:
“He is in a great training camp,” he said. “From what I’ve read, CM Punk is like a sponge when it comes to training. So as long as he can digest what is thrown at him, he is in a great camp. Anthony Pettis is a superstar in mixed martial arts right now. I think [Duke] Roufus was an underachiever in the kick boxing world, and he worked his ass off to obtain the level he attained as a coach. I believe he can see himself a little bit in CM Punk and work slowly with him.
“Age is nothing but a number. I wouldn’t be going down to Miami and be willing to train with American Top Team if I didn’t feel I had the ability to get in a cage or the ring with anybody. I’m not about emasculating myself. I’m not about doing something to waste people’s time. The fact is I train regularly. I’m looking to get better. I’m 48 years old, 12 years his senior or however it is. If I can do it at my age and seriously consider getting in there with competitive guys, he can do it.”
Goldberg noted that he hasn’t watched the product regularly since he finished his run with the company in 2004. He also gives his thoughts on Macho Man Randy Savage going into the WWE Hall of Fame, his MMA training, and much more. Goldberg has a podcast on PodcastOne and has some movie projects on the table.
