• “As a fan, I’ve never been interested in that stuff” – SmackDown Wrestler On Goldberg’s Matches
In an interview with Metro UK, Kevin Owens was asked about a possible rematch with WWE Hall Of Famer Goldberg, but he didn’t seem interested in working with him due to The WCW Legend’s style of wrestling.
Below is what he said:
“I’d love to work with him again if he was here to work. I’m not saying this is his fault, but he’s not – his career has never been about long matches or anything like that. To me, I don’t see much positive out of wrestling him for two minutes, or 20 seconds or 30 seconds or whatever, you know what I mean?
I’d love to work with him again if you got to do a story beyond – all we did was, what, two weeks, maybe three weeks? If we got to do some cool stuff, and some cool promos, exchange back and forth, and then have a quality match, that’d be great. But that’s just not usually what he’s here for.
Look, it works. I’m not saying anything against that, it’s just not what I’m interested in. As a fan, I’ve never been interested in that stuff. Even when he was in WCW, I didn’t really like it. That’s just not what I look for in my wrestling.”
Owens and Goldberg collided for the Universal Championship at Fastlane 2017, where Goldberg defeated Owens after hitting a Spear and a Jackhammer to win the the Universal Championship for the first time.
