• Goldberg Comments On His Loss To Roman Reigns
At Elimination Chamber 2022, Roman Reigns defeated WWE Hall Of Famer Goldberg to retain the Universal Championship.
Goldberg passed out to Roman’s Guillotine Chokehold to lose the match.
During the latest episode of Car Cast, Goldberg revealed that he had COVID-19 when he got the call to get ready for a match against The Tribal Chief, so he didn’t get enough time to prepare for the match, as he hadn’t trained for months prior to the bout.
Below is what the former WCW World Heavyweight Champion said:
“Roman is a great dude. It would have been nice for me to do it in my 40s, but I had to do it at 55. I think they planned it out so he had more of an opportunity to beat me.
Let’s be perfectly honest, I would have squished him 15 years ago, but now, it’s a different story. I’m 55, I do two matches a year, what am I going to do? Come in, one of the bigger pay-per-views, and I’m going to beat the WWE Universal Champion and take the belt home for 6 months and come back?
I don’t write the script, I just kind of follow it. One of the reasons I came back is to give back to the business. If I can set Roman up and make him look like a million bucks going into WrestleMania against Brock, that’s my job.
I’m behind the eight ball. Not only do a plethora of people understand what the outcome will most likely be, but I obviously have an extremely short period of time to get ready for it.
I hadn’t trained for three months, I had COVID when I get the phone call to go. I literally had two weeks in the gym to get ready for this.
What people don’t understand, and it will come out in the documentary, is it’s tough to do that as a 20-year-old, it’s more difficult as a 30-year-old, a 40-year-old, it’s almost impossible, a 55-year-old, I’m one of the .003% humans on the planet that can pull something like that off.”
