Old School WCW Legend Bill Goldberg was interviewed on an episode of the Roman Atwood podcast, where he spoke about several topics, including his first WWE run (2003-2004).

Goldberg said WWE wasn’t interested in giving him a long World Title reign:

“I think at WCW I was the World Champion for a while. WWE, I don’t think they ever wanted me to be the champion for more than like 10 minutes.”

Below are the lengths of Goldberg’s World Title reigns in WWE:

World Heavyweight Championship (2003 reigns) – 84 days

Universal Championship (2017 reign) – 28 days

Universal Championship (2020 reign) – 37 days

Also during this interview, Goldberg revealed that he broke his hand backstage before his segment with Stone Cold Steve Austin:

“Stephanie (McMahon) came up to me backstage one night and said, ‘I heard you’ve been headbutting the doors.’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, that’s how I’ve got to be me.’ She goes, ‘I don’t want you headbutting doors anymore.’

I wanted to make sure that I was following her orders, they knock on my door. Wham! I punch the door and broke my hand. I never told them about it. So then, what am I going to do? ‘Time out!’ It’s freaking live television. So, I punch the door. They’re on the other side of the door, they don’t know what’s going on.

I wear these gloves, right? So, fortunately, I grabbed my glove and pulled my hand back out so I could move it. And I go, ‘Okay, let’s go to the ring.’ So I went to the ring, I grab the rope and I fell. And it was the night Steve Austin and I met for the first time, I think, and we did the beer bash.”
