• Goldberg Says RAW Wrestler Is A Younger Version Of Him
During the WWE Network documentary “Goldberg At 54”, Old School WCW Legend Bill Goldberg mentioned that he sees current WWE main eventer “The Scottish Warrior” Drew McIntyre as a younger version of himself.
Goldberg challenged Drew for the WWE Championship during January’s Royal Rumble PPV, but failed to win the Title.
Here’s what the WWE Hall Of Famer said about McIntyre:
“The problem I have is the time constraint. I think physically, even though I’m at an accelerated age, I think I’m still there. I’m not called upon to be some shmuck who’s easily run over, you know.
Especially in a situation like this, preparing for Drew, who’s as in shape as anybody is going to be, as a champion should be. You know, it’s like fighting a younger version of myself, in a little way.”
As great as Drew McIntyre is nowadays, and he’s the complete package with a great body, good promo skills and awesome in-ring talent, Goldberg praising him THAT MUCH is still obviously part of “getting him over” in a WWE documentary.
