Bully Ray: Goldberg’s Return Has To Make Absolute Sense, It Can’t Be ‘Plug And Play’
Bully Ray isn’t sure if we ever see Goldberg step foot in a WWE ring again, but it really needs to make sense if it does happen.
Bully addressed Goldberg’s WWE status on Busted Open Radio and said if the Royal Rumble marked Goldberg’s final appearance in the ring, he should “Go walk off into the sunset, go ahead and enjoy your time away.” However, if Bill did decide to return (he’s still under contract for one more match this year, and for two more years in total) it would have to make the “absolute right sense, not just the plug and play thing.”
Bully further discussed his point and talked (via FighterFans) about how Goldberg needs to be used in specific situations, and not a match like the Drew McIntyre one, which felt “thrown together.”
“Not like, ‘well we need a name who can we get, Goldberg?’ No. The only way it should be Goldberg [is if it makes storyline sense]. That’s why I bring up the Matt Riddle thing, because that was a very real-life scenario. They obviously have a little bit of a animosity towards each other,” Bully said, “so if they were able to get them to do business in some way shape or form? Then I’m all for it.”
“Bill’s losing a little bit of size, I think you saw that at the Rumble. The Cannonball shoulders, they’re not as prominent as they were. I’m sure he can still go on the mat, but I think, especially from what I’ve seen from Riddle’s work recently, it’s about being able to hang with a certain level of physicality. I think Riddle would get the best of Goldberg on the mat,” Bully said, “so if there’s a story there? Maybe. But if they just had them tear into each other that game that might not bode well!”
