Goldberg Believes His WWE Match With The Undertaker Was "A Very Bad Missed Opportunity"
A 'debacle' of a match
While The Undertaker vs. Goldberg was a dream match during the Monday Night Wars and in 2003 when Da' Man signed with WWE, it would ultimately go down as one of the worst matches in WWE history when it eventually took place at Super ShowDown in 2019.
Goldberg suffered a concussion before the match had even begun and he injured himself again after he headbutted the ring post following a missed Spear. The Undertaker then narrowly avoided a serious neck injury during the final moments of the match following a botched Jackhammer from Goldberg.
Looking back at the match on The Pat McAfee Show, Goldberg recalled being rocked after he headbutted a door backstage, an injury that was only exacerbated by the missed Spear spot.
"Taker, Yeah, 100%. Undertaker in Saud. I'd been out for a while and routine, everybody's got a routine, and I kind of forgot my routine. So, on the way out, I headbutted the door. I don't know where I am after that, I've got no idea what's going on. I'm kind of getting to the ring and then we've got the spot where he moves and I hit the turnbuckle," Goldberg began.
"I try to take things as realistic as possible and I took it wrong. So, let's just say I got another concussion right there and opened myself up pretty good. It's the referee and the booker's responsibility to call what's going on in there. They're on the mic and the headset and everything."
Goldberg also recalled being asked if he was okay by the official throughout the match and the WWE Hall Of Famer admitted him vs. 'Taker was a "very bad missed opportunity."
"By the time he'd walk away, I'd go, 'I don't know what's going on.' It was a different answer every time and the fact is, I never should've done what I did, but I did, I tried to go through with it but unfortunately, it turned out to be a debacle. It's a wonder that we both didn't get smashed during that match. It was a very bad missed opportunity. Hey, at the end of the day, I was just trying to provide a better show for everybody else," he added.
