Bret Hart Shares Harsh Words On Fellow WWE Hall Of Famer Goldberg
Current Universal Champion Goldberg is a name that is legendary among some wrestling fans, and hated by others. His run to the top of WCW was one of the most impressive in the companies history, with him taking down foe after foe on his way to the WCW Heavyweight Championship. He would eventually join WWE as well, where he would win another World Heavyweight Championship, as well as the Universal Championship twice in recent years. Most agree with his place in the Hall of Fame, but wrestling legend Bret Hart does not.
Bret Hart Talks About Goldberg On Broken Skull Sessions
Appearing with Stone Cold for his new podcast style show for WWE Network, the topic of Goldberg was brought up. It should be noted, that Goldberg was the cause for the end of Bret Hart’s career, after a botched kick lead to a heavy concussion which was heavily involved in his retirement. Here is what he had to say about Goldberg to Steve Austin.
‘I always knew what I was doing and I would hurt myself before I ever hurt another wrestler,” Bret said. “I just wish some of the wrestlers I worked with, especially at the end like Goldberg. Goldberg to me was one of the most unprofessional wrestlers there ever was in the business. For Bill Goldberg to be in the Hall of Fame… he hurt everybody he worked with, so he might as well wrestle a real gorilla.
He was the most dangerous guy to work with. He hurt everybody he worked with. I remember Curt Hennig being in pain all the time from the matches they had, and even when I worked with Bill… I always think, the last words I said to Bill before we went out and had that match where he injured, ended my career… I said, ‘Bill, whatever you do out there, don’t hurt me. Do whatever you want, we can do anything, just do not go nuts.’
Should Goldberg Be In The Hall Of Fame?
While the general criteria to be part of the Hall of Fame is to be well liked enough by Vince to get in, it still represents a storied career in wrestling. While Goldberg left great memories for fans, his history as a reckless and dangerous worker continues to today, where he recently dropped Undertaker on his head after a failed Jackhammer.
