Goldberg Responds To Fans Who Say He Shouldn't Be In The WWE Title Picture
"They can complain all they want"
Despite being 54-years-old, Goldberg will enter Royal Rumble 2021 as Drew McIntyre's challenger for the WWE Championship. Goldberg being in such a prominent position on the card has once again been widely criticised, particularly as the WWE Hall Of Famer has often had his hand raised at the end of past title bouts.
Goldberg was asked by FOX Sports what he thought of people who complain about him being in the world title picture.
He said: "They can complain all they want. I was brought in for a reason. I'm a relief pitcher. I'd like to think that I'm the top echelon relief pitcher and if they didn't think there was value in bringing in that relief pitcher to close out the game, then they wouldn't call me.
"I don't make the decisions, I just follow orders and I go out and do my job. And I try to do my job to the best of my ability. And though it may be far removed from when I was at my prime, I can still kick 98.9% of their asses. And if they don't think that, then that's why I'm back. If they don't think that, then walk up to me and ask me. Ask me, 'Do you think I'm ready?' Well, I'll show you and I'll find out if you're ready. And Drew McIntyre is the first one of that next generation."
Goldberg later stated he doesn't care about people who are opposed to his current spot on the card, adding: "You know, you wouldn't be human if you didn't want to prove every single person who said one thing negative about you wrong, but I'm not driven by that 5%.
"My life is not dictated, my daily mood is not dictated by those people. So, in all honesty, they wouldn't be around if they didn't have a computer to block them and what they say and how I react. So, in all honesty, I could really care less about 'em. I really don't care.
"They make no difference to me whatsoever. I'm out there to provide entertainment to the best of my ability and the one thing that you can always get from me is that I'm going to do my damndest to provide that."
