• Bruce Prichard Recalls Vince McMahon Going Back And Forth With Goldberg In 2003

During a recent edition of Something To Wrestle podcast, Old School WWF Veteran Bruce Prichard (a.k.a Brother Love) talked about why Vince McMahon was hesitant to sign Bill Goldberg in 2003, how Goldberg was backstage with all the personal issues going on in his life and WWE not giving up on Goldberg.

Below are the highlights:

On why Vince was hesitant to sign Bill Goldberg in 2003:

“There were a few things, but I don’t even know what the hell they were. There would be times where we would be hot on Goldberg and ideas of him vs The Rock. When it reached a point where we didn’t have him for the Royal Rumble and we had WrestleMania all penciled in, and it is good to go, now we are in post-WrestleMania mode. Okay, so, when are we going to do this and how are we going to do this?

Vince McMahon is like, ‘I need Bill Goldberg stuff, I need Bill Goldberg stuff,’ and then it was like, ‘F**k Goldberg.’ So, every time something came up Vince would then check out on him. It would be something about if we didn’t have him full-time and if they were not willing to work dates, then I don’t want him. At the same time, Vince McMahon’s feeling is that if he can just get Bill Goldberg into this environment, then it’s like, you know what, maybe I can get him to love pro wrestling. Maybe I can get him to love WWF. Then, he will be ours and will love it here and would want to do stuff.”

On how Goldberg was backstage with all the personal issues going on in his life:

“I think at this stage, Bill was really paranoid. He had a lot of people in his ear. He was in new surroundings, and he was unsure of himself, and I think that people played up that paranoia and that they were getting in his head. He didn’t trust anybody, and he was unhappy, and he let everyone around him know he was unhappy. Bill kind of kept to himself, which didn’t help when you are supposed to be hanging with the boys, and be one of the boys, and be out and about, he didn’t do that, so that didn’t help him out a whole lot either.”
