• Goldberg Comments On Randy Orton Completing 20 Years In WWE
WCW Legend Goldberg wrestled Randy Orton during his 1st run in WWE during the Ruthless Aggression Era.
Goldberg wrote the following about Orton completing 20 years on the WWE main roster on Instagram:
“Always an honor to share the ring throughout the years with this young man!! 👊
Randy Orton is truly one of the best to grace the squared circle …… and MORE importantly, he’s a great man! 👊 😤 🙏 “
For those who don’t know, Orton was a big fan of Goldberg during his teenage years.
During a recent appearance on the Out Of Character podcast, Randy talked about wanting the Goldberg tattoo.
Below is what Orton said about what happened in the tattoo shop:
“As a wrestling fan in my teenage years in high school, I loved Goldberg, so I actually, my first tattoo, I went into the tattoo shop and I told the guy I wanted the Goldberg tattoo. I swear to god.
Well, so I’m not The Legend Killer, The Viper, you know… I’m 18. I can get some ink now and I want to look tough damn it. So Goldberg’s my guy and I’m an idiot [Laughter].
So you know, the tattoo artist said ‘How about, let’s come up with something that’s just for you’. So okay, that’s a good idea. And so you know, some version, one of this was born. But anyway, I forgot what we were talking about.
I don’t know if I’ve ever told that story before, because it’s pretty embarrassing that I would even… but, yeah, there you go.”
