WWE News: Real Reason Why Goldberg Was Seen Bleeding On Raw
Goldberg returned on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw to make the go-home episode for Royal Rumble PPV a spectacular one. Almost every fan at the Q-arena in Cleveland, Ohio was on their feet as he made his way to the ring with his spectacular entrance.
‘Goldberg! Goldberg!’ chant filled up the entire arena as he was up to cut a promo for this Sunday’s Rumble match. However, for the better part of his promo, he was seen bleeding from his forehead.
Since WWE does not allow blood in televised programming, Corey Graves addressed the situation saying that the Myth was all fired up doing his entrance and banged his head so hard into the locker room door that he got busted.
Later, the bleeding portion was edited out from the video posted on WWE’s Youtube channel. Furthermore, the blood on Goldberg’s forehead was also removed in WWE.com photos. This clearly indicates the fact that how much the WWE is serious about their product which is strictly made for only PG programming.
The head-butt on the locker room door is not anything new to the former WCW franchise. He usually does the roaring or head-butting into the door to let the adrenaline going before entering the arena. However, after the unwanted incident happened on Monday, he said he will be leaving the tradition from now onwards.
He must be over fired up ever since coming back to the WWE, last October which he should not be. Previously, Sasha Banks shared a unique experience while he was present at backstage on Raw. This is what she said to wrestleINC.com regarding the exclusive head-butt experience:
He came up to me and said ‘hi’ and I was like, ‘wait, you’re saying ‘hi’ to me? Oh my god! You’re Goldberg!’ And right before he went out, he looked at me and Bayley and was like, ‘you didn’t see this’. He headbanged the door just to get himself psyched and ready. Like, that is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen in my life!”
Goldberg cut a decent promo on Raw despite the minor injury he suffered. Aftermath, we saw the iconic moment of Undertaker and Goldberg standing in the same ring to close the show.
