WWE Hall of Famer and co-host of SiriusXM’s Busted Open Radio Mark Henry recently discussed the Universal Title match between Roman Reigns and Goldberg. The bout will be taking place at WrestleMania 36, during a pre-tape where no fans will be in attendance. During the conversation with co-host Dave LaGreca, Henry would state that fans need to show Goldberg more ‘respect.’
Mark Henry on Bill Goldberg
“So Roman Reigns goes and does business. When will be the next time you see Bill Goldberg?” Mark Henry began. “You won’t see him very much because I don’t think that he’s going to work a full workload.”
“…we got to respect Bill for who he is”
Mark Henry would elaborate further, saying “primarily the whole thing is, we got to respect Bill Goldberg for who he is.” Henry would then reference the Saudi Arabia match that Goldberg had against The Undertaker. During that match Goldberg would get concussed and unsure on his feet, causing a train wreck of a bout.
“And here he is given substance to the business. And he’s doing exactly what he needed to do to get rid of that…”
“He [Goldberg] wanted to get that horrible taste out his mouth,” Henry stated. “From having a bad performance. And here he is given substance to the business, and he’s doing exactly what he needed to do to get rid of that. Like people will remember him being involved in a hell of an angle and going out at WrestleMania.”
