WWE's Goldberg: Big E Is The Prototype For A Wrestling Superstar In 2022
High praise from Goldberg
While Big E has previously revealed that he was a huge Goldberg fan when Da' Man was a top star in WCW, that fanaticism has come full circle as Goldberg told Sports Illustrated that he is fan of Big E's and he believes the former WWE Champion is "the prototype for a wrestling superstar in 2022."
"I'm a huge fan of Big E, both personally and professionally. It was wonderful to see him as champion. I know he lost the belt, but it's only going to be a bump in the road. I feel like I'm old enough to be his grandfather. I'm extremely proud of him. I first met Big E when he was a kid at one of my signings. For him to be a fan of mine throughout the years, it's an honour and a privilege," Goldberg said.
"Now, I am a fan of his. I love his work, I love his enthusiasm, I love his passion. To me, he's the prototype for a wrestling superstar in 2022."
While they may be big fans of each other inside the ring, both men have previously revealed they would be willing to face each other inside the squared circle should the opportunity arise.
