Goldberg talks about helping elevate Bobby Lashley during their feud



Goldberg appeared on "After the Bell with Corey Graves" ahead of this weekend's Elimination Chamber to discuss wanting to be a role model for his son, elevating Bobby Lashley, and whether he sees his son in a WWE ring someday.

Graves said he believes Goldberg elevated Bobby Lashley to the next level in their match:

"That's one of the reasons why I came back," Goldberg said.

"I didn't have the appreciation for the business that I do now, back in the day, and I wasn't the giving individual nor was I a giving character. Your legacy is not necessarily predicated upon what everybody sees."

"It means a lot to me to be able to come back and do things like that. It's my duty, my honor, and my privilege. As I said, I didn't have the appreciation for it before but I do now,” he continued.

Goldberg said his main goal is to be a role model for his son:

"I'll be perfectly honest with you, my number one job is to be there as a role model for my son. I'm trying to continue the things that I have done in the past so that he sees how to go about obstacles."

"I've been thrown a number of obstacles in my way, throughout my life, and in real time I can show him how to deal with it."

Graves asked if Goldberg’s son, Gage, will enter a WWE ring one day:

"It is highly possible," he said. "Hopefully that will be an option."

"I do believe that it's inbred in him to have the love and passion for sports, the physicality of football, the physicality of playing catcher, and wrestling, they're all the same. You know, it's all about opportunities. I mean, I want him to follow his dream."

"He's already proven to me and everybody else that he's already become a better baseball player than I ever can be. So I don't want him to ever be compared against me because it's not fair. He's his own guy. I just want to be able to provide him opportunities, let him make his own choice, and get him as prepared as humanly possible for life. That's what it's all about, man."

"So yeah, I think it's highly possible. Will the opportunity present itself? Only time will tell."

Goldberg will face Roman Reigns this Saturday as WWE's Elimination Chamber for the WWE Universal title.
