In a recent interview with Bleacher Report, Goldberg praised ‘The Icon’ Sting and the influence he had over WCW and Goldberg’s own career,
“Sting is WCW. Period, end of story. People want to say it was me for a period of time, but he just handed the reins to me for a little bit. Sting is that promotion. That promotion is Sting. Everything I learned, I learned from him. He was an integral part of my process becoming a professional wrestler. I wouldn’t have done it without him.”
The two-time WWE Hall of Famer also spoke at length on topics as varied as his undefeated streak (including the similarities between Asuka’s version of it in NXT and his original WCW run), the evolution of wrestling audiences since his debut in WCW and his shock return to WWE in 2016.
Goldberg would also speak to his relationship with Vince McMahon, “I hated him in the beginning, and now I’d die for him,” and his remaining dream opponents, “I’d love to tangle with Randy [Orton] again. I’d love to get in the ring with Drew [McIntyre]. I’d love to get in the ring with [Keith] Lee. There’s a lot of people that are still attractive out there.”
