Bill Goldberg interview
Friday, 27 April 2012 16:40
Thought I'd pass along that we had Goldberg on 106.7 The Fan this afternoon with former Redskins linebacker LaVar Arrington and Chad Dukes. As it turns out, Goldberg and Arrington are good friends.
Here's a link to the interview: http://washington.cbslocal.com/2012/04/27/lavar-dukes-bill-goldberg-is-a-caps-fan-probably-wont-wrestle-again/
Full audio is in there.
Here are some quotes for you to use if you'd like...On his and Lesnar's initial departure from WWE
“Obviously it was kind of unfinished business. We both left there under circumstances that weren’t the most favorable for anybody, let alone the fans who are the most important at the end of the day.”
On Lesnar in general
“Brock, as a young kid, he succeeded in every single thing that he did. To venture out and try to play professional football without having college experience — LaVar will tell you how hard that is. Big pat on the back to him for that. And then going to MMA and succeeding and becoming the World Heavyweight Champion. . . Whatever Brock wants to do, I’m in his corner. He’s a good buddy of mine and we talk frequently. I just hope at the end of the day whatever he chooses his health is in a positive note. We all know he’s had some issues over the past number of years.”
On having a final match
“It’s really tough for a guy like myself. Look at a guy like Animal. Look at Road Warrior. Look at guys who are big power guys. . . the older you get the harder it is to be that guy."
He added his ideal final match would be against Steve Austin.
“That’d be a dream come true… that’d be killer. I think at the end of the day they probably don’t trust me enough to put me in there with guys, considering I’m ‘a dangerous guy to work with’ and ‘I haphazardly ended Bret Hart’s career.’ At the end of the day these people have to understand it’s a violent deal, number one. Number two, accidents happen. And number three, that’s why I work in Japan — they don’t cry if you hit them …That’s a joke.”
