Goldberg Thinks There Is Still A Tiny Bit Of Resentment Towards Him In WWE Because Of Monday Night Wars
Were he and other WCW stars 'punished' for working for the competition?
Goldberg - who may have wrestled his last match following his defeat to Universal Champion Roman Reigns at Elimination Chamber - recently spoke about potential lingering resentment towards him due to his role in the Monday Night Wars.
The former WWE and WCW Champion wrestled for World Championship Wrestling, then WWE's strongest competitor, between 1997 and the company's closure in 2001.
Speaking to Dr. Beau Hightower's YouTube Channel, Da Man discussed the stigma that may have followed him when he joined WWE in 2003.
Hightower noted that many who came to WWE from WCW seemed to be on the receiving end of unfavourable booking, perhaps as a punishment, apart from Goldberg and Booker T.
Goldberg noted that it was something he believes effected him, too.
"I always felt that too. And I still believe there's a tiny bit of that in the back of everybody's mind because I did work for the competitor during those Monday Night War battles. But I think what has made me successful and also made me hated is the thing that is the determining factor. I was the Mike Tyson of wrestling. My goal was to be something completely different. Black tights, black shoes, I didn't frickin' talk for six months. I just squished motherf*ckers".
Goldberg is currently a free agent. His Elimination Chamber match with Reigns was the last one on his latest WWE deal.
