Goldberg: I'd Be Behind Gage 100 Percent If He Wanted To Make It In WWE
Gage got put in a Hurt Lock by Bobby Lashley
Goldberg says that, while he isn't sure how he would react if his son Gage wanted to be a professional wrestler, he would support him 100 per cent in his journey to make it into WWE.
Gage has appeared on WWE television alongside his father in recent weeks and was on the receiving end of a vicious Hurt Lock from WWE Chapion Bobby Lashley at SummerSlam 2021.
Appearing on La Previa de WWE, when asked how he would react if Gage wanted to be a pro wrestler, Godberg said: "I sure don't know. I have no idea what I would do in that situation. The fact is I'm his father, along with his mother, we support everything that he does. He makes a decision and we back him 100%. As a matter of fact, after this video conference, I'll be calling him and we're gonna download on some football talk.
"But, you know, that's a bridge I'll have to cross if in fact it's built in front of me. I don't know if that's something he'd like to pursue. But as a father, you know, I have to be behind him 100% and I know that he would do nothing but carry on the name in a positive way."
Comparisons were drawn between Gage and Dominik Mysterio, who has followed his legendary father Rey into the business. However, Goldberg notes that wrestling hasn't been in his family for generations like the Mysterios.
He continued: "It's a business that has been in Rey's family for, you know generations. Myself, it's a lot different. I came into it late later in life and it became something that I was very passionate about, but it was not something that I grew up loving because football was my goal.
"I think my son is the same way, although being cast into this as a 15-year-old brought him to the forefront a lot sooner than it did business-wise for me. So, again, I'm just proud of what he's accomplished so far and I'm curious and very much anticipating the future for him."
