Goldberg Revealed Who’s Responsible For His Unthinkable WWE Return
One of the most memorable moments of the bygone decade arrived in WWE in 2016 when Goldberg returned. The former WCW franchise player had an issue with the Vince McMahon owned company that kept him away from the pro-wrestling scene since April 2004. After 12 long years, he was back on WWE TV that appeared to be a historic occasion.
It was prior to Survivor Series PPV that Goldberg made his comeback to continue the ongoing feud with Brock Lesnar and re-produce a match against him. At that point, it was almost unthinkable that an almost retired Goldberg could face and defeat Lesnar who was in his prime. But it did happen courtesy of one man.
The WWE Hall Of Famer was the second guest on The Broken Skull Sessions with WWE Hall Of Famer ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin to talk about his return to the WWE. During the interview, Goldberg mentioned that it was Paul Heyman who made the unthinkable happen.
He was the one to come up with the creative idea that was perfectly executed at Survivor Series 2016. So Goldberg thanked the advocate of Brock Lesnar, whole-heartedly,
“If it was not for Heyman, my comeback would not have happened. Not that he made the call to make it, it’s just that creatively, that’s part of my deal, right? And there are certain people that know you and certain people that don’t know you. And, therefore, you try to set the stage in a situation to where if things can go wrong, they go really wrong, they are the most qualified people that know you better than anybody on the planet.
It’s not the time for a booker to come in and try to learn about you. We have to know what worked and apply it immediately. There’s no trial and error. I mean, I trust him exponentially with my career.”
The former Universal Champion also stated about the bad blood running high between him and WWE came to an end. Goldberg knew he does not have much wrestling left within him. So he enjoyed the WrestleMania rematch against Brock Lesnar at the 33rd edition of the show. This is the first time that Goldberg was actually enjoying walking through the ramp on his final WrestleMania. Here’s more in his own words, (courtesy wrestlingINC.com)
“I walk in there, and I hug him, and I was laughing, and I’m like, ‘it’s all good. I’m going to have fun this time!’ And he’s worried, right? Completely worried. And I got through that curtain, man, and I took a couple of steps. And I looked down at all the people and I just smiled. And for the first time, truthfully, I think for the first time walking to the ring, I actually enjoyed it. I just enjoyed being in the moment at that time.”
