Drew McIntyre has expressed his appreciation for Goldberg after working with the WWE Hall of Famer at Royal Rumble 2021.
McIntyre successfully defended the WWE Championship against Goldberg in January at the WWE pay-per-view in a short but hard-hitting match, after which Goldberg raised his hand in a show of respect.
The Scotsman admitted that Goldberg has a history of coming back into WWE and being put over, so he was immensely grateful to the 54-year-old for helping to make him a bigger star in their match at Royal Rumble 2021.
Speaking to Sports Illustrated, McIntyre said: “I was grateful for the opportunity with Goldberg. The Royal Rumble is a significant pay-per-view, and Goldberg has a history of coming in and winning the title. People were questioning what would happen.
"He is a genuine legend; he draws eyeballs and he wanted to go out of his way for me. I am so appreciative to have had that match, and the moment we shared together after the match, too.”
