Goldberg is looking to win the WWE Championship at the Royal Rumble and his beef with Drew McIntyre has gotten a bit personal with the two trading barbs on RAW. Fox Sports caught up with Goldberg ahead of the event and asked him about McIntyre’s comments, people thinking he doesn’t deserve title shots at his age, and how prepared he is.
Check out some highlights below:
His response to Drew McIntyre saying that wrestling Goldberg would be like wrestling his dad:
His dad must be one bad sumb—-. That’s all I can say — and I’m kicking his ass for his dad.
On people complaining about him getting title shots:
They can complain all they want. I was brought in for a reason. I’m a relief pitcher.
I’d like to think that I’m the top-echelon relief pitcher, and if they didn’t think there was value in bringing in that relief pitcher to close out the game, then they wouldn’t call me.
I don’t make the decisions. I just follow orders, and I go out and do my job. And I try to do my job to the best of my ability. And though it may be far removed from when I was at my prime, I can still kick 98.9% of their asses. And if they don’t think that, then that’s why I’m back.
If they don’t think that, then walk up to me and ask me. Ask me, “Do you think I’m ready?” Well, I’ll show you, and I’ll find out if you’re ready. And Drew McIntyre is the first one of that next generation.
How much time he had to prepare for the Royal Rumble:
Let’s just say that I haven’t had nearly the time that I normally would have. I haven’t had the time that makes me feel comfortable. I haven’t had the time to make me not lobotomize myself every day about putting on my BVDs in front of millions of people at my age — or any age.
… I’m one of the luckiest men in the world. I’m in a great position, and the last thing you’ll listen to me do is complain. So no matter how much time I’ve had, I will make the best use of it.
