Bill Goldberg addressed Ryback’s critical remarks in WWE Magazine regarding comparisons between the two wrestlers via Twitter Sunday.
In the interview, Ryback proclaimed to be a better wrestler and athlete than Goldberg ever was. Goldberg, who played in the National Football League, particularly took issue with the WWE Superstar proclaiming himself as the better athlete.
“Better athlete? Come on dude wake up…..,” Goldberg tweeted.
In a remark re-tweeted by Goldberg, former WCW colleague Scotty Riggs stated, “Take it as a complement that the kid is unsuccessfully trying to outshine you!!”
Former WCW announcer Mark Madden also noted earlier, “Ryback thinks he’s superior to @Goldberg? Ryback is a Xerox of a Xerox. Goldberg was an organic phenomenon. We’ll see how Ryback winds up.”
Goldberg wrote “Case closed!” in response to the following remark: “Ryback is a better athlete than @Goldberg? I don’t remember seeing Ryback play in the NFL. #ShowSomeRespect.”
During the WWE Magazine interview, Ryback said comparisons between the two don’t bother him, but that “people are misinformed.”
“People see a big guy with a shaved head who’s intense, and they draw those comparisons,” Ryback stated. “I will say this: Goldberg did this for the money. He was never a fan of wrestling. I do this because I have a passion for it, and that’s the biggest difference between Goldberg and me. I’m not here to make five million dollars and then walk away. I’m here for life. And, I firmly believe that I’m much better than he was in the ring. He was great, and I was a fan of his when I was younger. But, I feel I’m a better athlete and wrestler than Goldberg ever was, and people are going to see that over time.”
