• “I’m a huge Goldberg mark” – RAW Superstar
During a recent appearance on The Kurt Angle Show, RAW Superstar Randy Orton revealed that he’s a big fan of WWE Hall Of Famer Goldberg and almost got a tattoo similar to that of Goldberg when he was 18 years old.
Here’s what Orton said:
“In high school, when I was just a fan, I loved watching Goldberg, man. I have got a funny Goldberg story too.
So, it was 1998. Huge Goldberg fan. I used to get together with all my buddies, and we were watching the undefeated streak as it took place and just pumped, right?
So, I turned 18, and I wanted a tattoo. Mom said no tattoos. You can probably guess where this is going. So, now that I’m 18 and I’m a huge Goldberg mark. I go to the tattoo spot and the tattoo artist, I tell him, I say, ‘I want this tattoo’, and it was a picture out of a magazine.
A Goldberg tribal f**king tattoo. So, let’s see. I didn’t get it. I didn’t get it, but if you look, I’ve got some symmetrical-looking tribal here that I’ve kind of messed with over the years, and what that started out as was the idea that it was going to be a duplicate of Goldberg’s tattoo.
And the tattoo artist was like, ‘Oh, you don’t want to put another guy’s tattoo on your arm.’ And looking back, it’s like, ‘Thanks, tattoo artist.’ Holy sh*t!
But he put a very similar Goldberg-esque tattoo, tribal. Right on my shoulder, same position, and it was symmetrical like Bill’s, but it was different enough to where you would look at it and think, ‘Goldberg.’
Over the years, I’ve had a little more done to it, just to make sure once I got into the professional wrestling world, that people wouldn’t think it was supposed to look like Goldberg’s.
I think it’s funny looking back that when I was 18, I was going to get his tattoo on my body and then 5 years later, I would be wrestling him on TV, on Monday Night Raw, with Ric Flair and Triple H.
It’s crazy how life ends up.”
