Goldberg Doesn’t Have A High Opinion Of Himself, Just Extremely High Standards
Goldberg doesn’t care about making his haters happy, he’s focused on providing good entertainment for his fans.
Goldberg spoke with Ryan Satin of FOX Sports ahead of his WWE Championship match against Drew McIntyre at the Royal Rumble on Sunday. Satin asked Goldberg how much his training regimen changes as he gets older, and ‘Da Man’ said it depends on “when you get the call,” but it was not as much time as he usually has.
“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,” he said. “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 don’t have a high opinion of myself, but I have an extremely high standard for myself. 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. Especially this last four days. I’m gonna show the world that Goldberg is still walking around,” he explained, “and walking with a very heavy footstep because I’m gonna put this foot right up Drew McIntyre’s ass.”
Goldberg also responded to the fact that he has a vocal part of the fanbase that is against him, noting that you might want to react to it, but he’s not driven by responding to that portion of his haters.
“My life is not dictated, my daily mood is not dictated by those people. So in all honesty, they wouldn’t be around if they didn’t have a computer to block them and what they say and how I react. So in all honesty, I couldn’t really care less about ‘em. I really don’t care,” Goldberg said. “They make no difference to me whatsoever. I’m out there to provide entertainment to the best of my ability, and the one thing that you can always get from me is that I’m going to do my damndest to provide that.”
