One of the biggest questions going into the Universal Championship match at WrestleMania, is whether or not champion Goldberg can compete for a decent amount of time. Since making his return to the company, his only two matches have lasted less than two minutes, combined.
On the latest episode of “The Ross Report,” Jim Ross spoke with Goldberg and addressed these concerns. “The Man” said that he compares himself to Mike Tyson when it comes to the length of his matches:
“It’s just being able to deliver. They’re excited and you’ve got to deliver. I don’t want to be a mark and worry about what people think. It’s tough to go out and do a couple of moves and be taken seriously. Although, at the end of the day, I was the Mike Tyson of wrestling. People didn’t pay to see me wrestle 15, 20 minutes.”
“I’m sick and tired of hearing, ‘Goldberg can’t go 15 minutes. He can’t do this. He can’t…’ You know what? They pay people to do that, okay? They also pay other guys to smash people. And when Mike Tyson was fighting, people didn’t not pay $60 to know he was going to knock someone’s block off within 60 seconds. And don’t tell me when he delivered, that people were not on their feet, going nuts. So you can’t please everybody, but I wasn’t one of those guys. If I was asked to be one of those guys, maybe I could’ve been. But I’m not one of those guys. But, hey, I’m very, very lucky not to be one.”
Goldberg continued by saying that his match with Lesnar is going to have a crimson feel to it.
“Whenever it is, it’s going to be a blood fest. Whether I win or lose, the fact is Brock’s going to know he was in one hell of a fight and it isn’t going to be 15 seconds. It ain’t going to be a minute and 20 seconds because we both know we’re coming with it and I don’t think we’re going to surprise each other by any means. I think we’re in it for the long haul, so it’s going to be interesting. There’s no question about it. And I’ve already got my date in the hospital. I hope he has got his.”
I can’t wait for this match. I’ve enjoyed seeing Goldberg each time he’s been in the ring for WWE, and I have a feeling that these two are going to deliver on the big stage.
