• Goldberg Praises Riddle, Interested In Facing Him In A Match
Despite RAW wrestler Riddle publicly insulting WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg on multiple occasions, the WCW Legend still went on to praise him.
During a recent interview with DAZN, Goldberg had the following to say about Riddle:
“The cocky kid spouting off his mouth in the beginning, and I didn’t appreciate it very much by any stretch of the imagination. But the guy has put in a lot of frickin’ hard work and he has dedicated his life to this business.
Whether I like him as a human being or not, I have to understand and appreciate his passion for the business and his work ethic. Because he works hard and that I appreciate as an athlete and as a human.
Is he a prick sometimes? Absolutely. But that’s him. That’s his character, and so am I.”
When asked if he’s interested in facing Riddle in a match, Goldberg said yes. Goldberg also noted that he’s interested in facing Roman Reigns and John Cena as well.
