• Eric Bischoff On Why Goldberg Gets A Lot Of Hate On Social Media & Sting Doesn’t
WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg is still wrestling and will face Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship at Royal Rumble 2021.
On the other hand, WWE Hall of Famer Sting joined AEW last year and plans on wrestling in the company.
You might have noticed that 54 year old Goldberg gets a lot of hate on Social Media, while 61 year old Sting doesn’t face that issue.
During a recent interview with SK Wrestling’s Riju Dasgupta, former WCW President Eric Bischoff gave his opinion on why Goldberg gets a lot of heat nowadays despite being one of the biggest draws in professional wrestling history.
Here’s what Bischoff said:
“I think it goes back to the beginning of Goldberg’s career. Bill Goldberg became a megastar almost overnight. And, as a result of that, Bill Goldberg was thrust into the limelight in main event matches with top-level talent, without really having the experience that would enable him to have longer, more dramatic types of matches that you would see out of a Sting, or a Chris Jericho, or you name it, any of the other top stars.
I think because of Bill Goldberg’s limited experience in the very beginning, and the fact that Bill didn’t really develop a much broader skill-set in terms of his technical abilities in the ring, fans sometimes look at Bill Goldberg as a limited star in terms of in-ring ability. I think there’s some resentment in the eyes of fans for that.
They understand the character, how powerful the character is, but because of the limitations that he has in terms of what he can do in the ring, I think there’s a little bit of resentment or resistance to Bill Goldberg.”
