The 2018 Hall of famer sat down with Inside The Ropes and explains why he told Vince McMahon that the entire HOF ceremony needs to be changed. Read the full story on Bill Goldberg's HOF experience here...
Bill Goldberg was inducted into the 2018 class of the WWE Hall Of Fame and gave the final speech to conclude a four-hour ceremony. The former WWE Universal Champion recently spoke to Inside The Ropes about his experiences at this year's Hall Of Fame in New Orleans and the former WCW champion seemed less than thrilled:
"First and foremost I went to Vince and I told him my impression of the Hall Of Fame and what should happen," Goldberg explained. "What happened the night before and I don't think it's a justice to the people being inducted. I don't think it's a justice to the fans that sit there for four hours.
"I think it needs to be changed completely right up on its head. I don't care what anybody says and I don't care if the person that puts it together thinks I'm full of s--t. It needs to be changed because it sucks. I don't care about what other people say or how they did it, I'm telling you in my experience as a headliner in 2018 in the Hall Of Fame -- it needs to be changed."
Goldberg and Lesnar arguably had the best match at WrestleMania 33 when “The Beast Incarnate” defeated Goldberg to begin his record setting title reign. Goldberg has been on the sidelines since, but the WWE Hall of famer makes it clear that he still has one more match in him:
" I went up to Vince and I told him -- I'm not gonna tell you everything I told Vince -- but let's just that me standing there after I was done with the Hall Of Fame on a Monday Night Raw it's like being on the sidelines when you can play. I couldn't stand it just because I'm a competitive dude and I don't sit backstage and watch people do their thing when I'm still capable of doing it.
"It was the coolest experience of my life being inducted as the headliner of the 2018 WWE Hall Of Fame [...] it was awesome, but yeah the next night I was like a caged animal man. You know it's tough for me and it is what it is and I have to grow up and be a man about it and accept things the way they are, but if I'm still capable of doing something I don't like watching people do it."
