• Former WWE Wrestler Says Undertaker vs. Goldberg Was A ‘Spectacle’
During a recent interview with Wrestlinginc, former WWE wrestler Hornswoggle talked about not going to Saudi Arabia this year for WWE Super ShowDown, The Undertaker vs. Goldberg, WWE’s 24/7 Championship & more.
Below are the highlights:
On not going to Saudi Arabia for WWE Super ShowDown:
“I didn’t make the trip this time. They had the stadium already sold out, they didn’t need me. It would have been fifty and a half [in the 50 Man Battle Royal]. That’s a hellacious travel day, so I was good.”
On Goldberg vs. The Undertaker:
“It was a spectacle, that’s the one word I’ll use to describe it. You have two guys who have made more money, not in this business but for this business, than ninety percent of people in history. So, you can’t really say whether they’re past their prime or in their prime. Shouldn’t really comment on it because of what they’ve done for this business.”
On WWE 24/7 Championship:
“I love it. The Hardcore Championship is still probably my favorite title of all time. It was just fun and it was in an era where it was swearing, blood, and b**bs but then you had this funny silliness of the Hardcore Championship. They’d go in the Mississippi River and play places and stuff like that.
It was just so much fun to watch. Now it’s fun again. It’s bringing that ‘ha-ha’ factor that RAW and SmackDown always need. You always need a little bit of not so serious business on the shows.”
