Goldberg explains what went wrong in his match against Undertaker


The match between Goldberg and Undertaker from last year’s edition of Super Showdown was a complete disaster and fans had criticized the bout for its poor execution.

During his recent appearance on the Total Slam podcast, Goldberg talked about the bout and explaining what went wrong with it, the former Universal Champion said that it was the perfect storm with no good:

“My match with Taker was the perfect storm with no good. At the end of the day, I was not in the ring for two years. It was 150 degrees. Undertaker and I never worked together before,” said Goldberg. “My character is based on realism. My character is based on intensity and sometimes I forget I’m a little bit older than I used to be and my body is not [the same]. It was a spot over the years that I knocked myself out at times. Why? Because I refuse to do in there something that doesn’t looks real. If I’m going to do something, I’m going to do it 100 percent. If I knocked myself out, so be it, I knocked myself out.”

Continuing on the topic, Goldberg said that he just wanted to give the best show possible to make his fans and family proud and he wanted to complete a dream:

“I had to deal with it and it was only my fault because I went too hard. You can’t fault me for it because I wanted to give the best show possible; I wanted to make my family and fans proud. I wanted to complete a dream of my and have a good match with Taker, but it doesn’t always turn out the way you want and unfortunately it was on TV. Everybody in the world saw it… but hey, what match defies a human being? For two weeks I felt bad about it, and I think Taker and I should get a pat on the back for putting ourselves out there at our age and doing the things that we do to entertain the people.”

Goldberg is currently scheduled to challenge the Fiend Bray Wyatt for his Universal Championship at this year’s edition of Super Showdown from Saudi Arabia on February 27.

    What went wrong with the match is that it happen fifteened years too late and the wrong guy went over.

    Sorry Bill, but yes, people can fault you for needlessly and pointlessly smashing your head into something, when it serves zero purpose for the match, and actually can (and did) hinder your ability to give the kind of performance people are expecting/paying for.
