Goldberg Tells Bret Hart To "Grow Up" And Stop Being "Such A Pr*ck" Despite Ending His Career In WCW

It's no secret that Bret Hart blames Bill Goldberg for ending his pro wrestling career, but his fellow WWE Hall of Famer has now hit back by telling him to "grow up" and stop being "such a pr*ck."

In a recent episode of Who Killed WCW, WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart looked back on the match with Bill Goldberg that ended his in-ring career.

At WCW Starrcade in 1999, a botched kick from Goldberg during a World Heavyweight Championship match left Hart with a severe concussion. That not only forced Bret to retire but may have later led to him suffering a stroke. 

Over the years, Hart has never shied away from making his feelings known about Goldberg. The latter has maintained he warned the Hitman about the kick, while Bret continues to argue that Bill is unsafe between the ropes. 

During a recent interview, Goldberg made it clear he's sick of the continued back-and-forth. 

"The Bret Hart thing is just it just saddens me as a human being. That's all. I mean, first and foremost, I would never wish ill will upon any opponent or anyone like that to have an accident like that happen. And end someone's career, especially someone who's, you know, one of the best that ever was 100%."

"It sucks. I'm not asking anybody to understand it. I'm just saying, just leave me alone. Yes, sir [about warning him the kick was coming]. Put your hand up. Do whatever you got to do, man. It is what it is. Come on, man. I love you, Bret. Don't be such a prick. That's all. Grow up."

While those comments are bound to upset Bret (and his legion of fans), Goldberg isn't sweating it because he said elsewhere in the conversation that he's still gunning for an in-ring return of his own. 

"Oh, man, I'd love to - 100%. I have to get my torn rotator cuff taken care of finally because, yeah, we all live with these injuries, dude, right? And I'll come out and say it when I came back with Brock [Lesnar], and nobody ever knew this. I came back with Brock that first night, and in Denver, I blew my rotator cuff completely. And I never told anybody about it. And I kept working through it. And you know, because you have this sparing...your work sparingly once or twice a year, right?"

"So I can crescendo and get as strong as I can. I ain't doing shit till I get that done, then that's hopefully coming up. You know, I'm doing stem cells here soon, and then I'm going to see if surgeries needed. But yeah, man, I'd love to have one more match. You know how it is. Vince [McMahon] and I spoke about it, and he gave me his word. But all that stuff happened, and, hey, man, I don't hold grudges. Vince gave me so many opportunities, man. I'll be forever grateful. But yeah, I would absolutely love to have that final match. I would."

Later explaining that he's also fine with not having one more match, Goldberg revealed that he isn't necessarily looking to WWE or AEW to help him make it a reality. 

"It wouldn't have to be with anyone," he acknowledged. "I could do it myself and accomplish what I wanted to accomplish, right? I could do the promotion myself. Overseas, do it in Israel, do it in India, do it somewhere, do it in Japan. Maybe do one in the States? I don't know."
