Goldberg has reveled that he was mistaken for Stone Chilly Steve Austin often, and that he took the error personally.
In a Q&A session previous to this weekend’s Royal Rumble, The Grasp of the Spear was requested whether or not or not followers would ever confuse him with the Texas Rattlesnake and the way he responded.
Because it seems, Goldberg was not a fan of being mistaken for Stone Chilly Steve Austin, for quite a lot of causes. Here’s what Goldberg needed to say on the matter:
“Effectively firstly he must be flattered as a result of I’m a hell of lot higher trying than he’s. It used to actually p*ss each of us off. We’ve talked about this exponentially as a result of I prefer to say we’re fairly good mates. I at all times took it personally and it made me mad as a result of Steve Austin is, like, 250lbs and I used to be like 285lbs / 290lbs. So I believed that in the event that they thought I used to be Steve, then they thought I used to be small… I took that as a slight. Not as a result of they thought I used to be Steve Austin the superior wrestler, however as a result of I used to be small. So there’s one other layer to it. All through the years we used to each get actually p*ssed off, now I feel it’s hilarious. We truly attempt to carry it up to one another when it occurs. It’s fairly enjoyable.”
Fortunately, it appears each Goldberg and Stone Chilly Steve Austin can look again on situations like these in hindsight and snicker about them.
Why did Goldberg vs Stone Chilly Steve Austin by no means occur?
One dream match that many followers wished for, however that we by no means acquired to see, is Goldberg vs Stone Chilly Steve Austin. In the course of the Q&A session, the previous Common Champion opened up on why the mega match by no means truly occurred.
“It was a timing problem, it was only a timing problem, and an harm problem. I really like him exponentially, man, he’s an excellent dude and to have graced the ring with him in a match would have been completely phenomenal.”
Goldberg is about to tackle Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship on the Royal Rumble.
