Goldberg: “I Was Embarrassed to Go Out and Be a Wrestler”

Bill Goldberg is a guest on the latest episode of Uncut with Jay Cutler. Goldberg sits down with the former NFL QB and discusses college football conference realignment, NIL deals for college athletes, as they both have mixed emotions on the topic, transitioning from football to pro wrestling, where he succeeded and failed in building his character, and who ruled the roost in the WCW days.

-Speaking to Jay Cutler on Uncut, Goldberg talked about his first impressions of pro wrestling.

“Football was my thing, and I was embarrassed to go out and be a wrestler.”

-Difference between WCW and WWE

“WCW was run by the inmates. WWE is a different entity, cooperate.”

-How he looks at himself compared to other wrestlers

“[The} Rock is an entertainer, and I’m a competitor.”

-Goldberg also talks about his microphone skills and their importance

“I never developed them.” and went on to say, “You got to show range not just in wrestling but in life.”

-Why he returned to WWE in 2016

“I still ask myself that question. You know, I didn’t think I was ever gonna do it again.”

My wife and I were fortunate enough to have a little boy. He was six at the time, and I would not show him any of the stuff as I kind of repressed wrestling at the time.

“I was in New York promoting something, and I saw Brock [Lesnar], and one thing led to another, and I said, you know what, my son needs to see this in real-time.

Goldberg addresses other wrestling topics such as:

  • His thoughts on the Japanese style of wrestling.
  • Which wrestler was the hardest to “wrangle.”
  • Who were the locker room leaders in WWE and WCW
  • If he takes it personally when he gets booed
  • The match when he felt he could stick with wrestling as a career
  • Touched on people, intentionally setting him up to fail
  • If he will come back to WWE for another match and more.

In this sneak peek, Goldberg talks about how Lex Luger and Sting recruited him for WCW when he was a member of the Atlanta Falcons and how he was embarrassed at first but tried to make the best of it because he needed the money!

This Was The XFL: Review

Oh boy, it’s a great time to be a New England Patriots fan. They just won their 5th Super Bowl, Tom Brady is now the undisputed G.O.A.T. and the victory parade in Boston was glorious. As happy as things are right now for this pigskin fan…. Well, let me explain.

On Feb 3, 2001, I was that guy proudly wearing a NY/NJ Hitmen hat as the XFL was just hours away from their inaugural football game on NBC. I even bought an entire box of XFL trading cards thinking that I had made a smart investment that would pay off down the line.

Sadly, I’m not joking.

Do you want to know what’s really sad? Taking a story about the unmitigated disaster of Vince McMahon’s “smash mouth” football league and turning it into the ultimate puff piece where the positives are accentuated to fit a narrative that puts minimal lights on the overwhelming negatives.  Continue reading “This Was The XFL: Review”

Man of Steel vs. Faith of Man

In pop culture folklore, Superman is Earth’s greatest hero. His mythological attributes of being faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound can be quoted by anyone. Over the years, the last son of Krypton has taken a back seat to superheroes such as Iron-Man and Batman. Society’s disillusionment with Superman stems from a lack of realism in which he solves the world’s problems. Being able to jettison an aircraft carrier into outer space with the ease equivalent to us mere mortals throwing a roll of toilet paper seems to be lost on people. Or, maybe our ability to suspend reality has been severely limited to the complexity of the times we live in today?
