• Goldberg Takes A Shot At Matt Riddle During Recent Interview
During a recent interview with Eyes on the Game’s Helen Lee, WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg talked about former two time UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez becoming a Pro-Wrestling, Matt Riddle & more.
Below are the highlights:
On Cain Velasquez becoming a Pro-Wrestler:
“Cain is doing great. I saw a little bit of the coverage from his match but put it this way. Anyone in professional sports who was in that sport for a life-long dream like myself played football was all I ever wanted to do, it’s a great alternative.
The wrestling business offers a lot, it really does. For guys who are high-level professional athletes to try and make the transition especially with what Cain knows and what he’s done in the past that’s a perfect easy transition.
I’m not going to say easy, but it’s easier than someone who’s never done something like that before. I don’t know Cain but it’s nice to see a guy like that face adversity in one’s business and then find pleasure in another, as a human being I’m happier than hell for him.
On if he wants to wrestle Velasquez:
“I’d smash him in the ring. I’d wrestle Cain in the ring in two seconds. I’d wrestle anybody. He’s got a lot of potential. Look at Ken Shamrock, he was the first guy to make that transition and to be able to blend the forms of MMA into wrestling.
You see fighters who have over the top characters and they’re perfect to make the transition to wrestling.
WWE welcomes anybody because competition only makes you better.”
On if there’s any heat between him and NXT wrestler Matt Riddle:
“Matt who? I don’t even know who that is. I don’t answer questions about people who haven’t made it yet. Riddle has a long way to go.”
