Ryback Comments on Facing Bill Goldberg

Posted by Steve Carrier on Friday, November 22nd, 2013


James Stewart asked Ryback about the about possibility facing Goldberg in the ring while he was promoting this Sunday’s Survivor Series pay-per-view event.

“I have a great amount of respect for Bill Goldberg, but I’m not going to beat around the bush and say I wanna be best friends with the guy,” Ryback said. “I’d like to face him in the ring. I’ve heard him say he’s not happy with comments I’ve made about him. If he has a problem with it let’s settle it at Wrestlemania.”

    JEEbus! No offense to “Ryback”, but WWE – PLEASE shut UP about bringing GOLDBERG back to face him at WrestleMania. You wanna insist on a GOLDBERG-”Ryback” match, fine. Do it at Royal Rumble. But TRUST me – Those “Goooooldberg” chants during “Ryback” appearances are NOT because fans want to see GOLDBERG come back to face him. It’s because fans saw from jump street that Skip Sheffield’s character reboot was such an obvious attempt to capitalize from GOLDBERG’s enduring popularity. GOLDBERG at WM XXX? The only match that truly makes sense is versus THE UNDERTAKER. During GOLDBERG’s one year in WWE, the only two major superstars he didn’t face were Kurt Angle (What a match THAT would have been!) and THE PHENOM. THAT’s the “dream match” GOLDBERG fans want to see. So if you’re wanting to sell PPV buys buys off a GOLDBERG match, THAT’s the one that’s going to do it. Let “Ryback” take on Sheamus, or Big Show – either would be a great match. Let Lesnar take on the Apex Predator Randy Orton – THAT would be a terrific match. Lesnar doesn’t desrve the UNDERTAKER match, selfish as he’s been about his contract and performances, which are raw now anyway. GOLDBERG vs UNDERTAKER at WM XXX? THAT would be LEGENDARY.

      As great as it sounds having Goldberg at Wrestlemania, I hope it doesn’t happen, just because I think Goldberg has a higher demeanor and more class than what WWE will ever have. WWE is no longer WWF which we all loved and really appreciated. WWE tried creating Ryback into their own version of Goldberg and just rear ended the whole Ryback persona right off the road and into a ditch. Ryback is a joke now and he of all people should shut his mouth because his so called “career” will never match up to anyone including Goldberg’s. WWE is horrible when it comes to business and not giving certain wrestlers that do deserve a rightful push into main event stars. Thats why Sting will never in my eyes appear on WWE. He hates Mcmahon how they run business. I just hope Goldberg does the same then stoop to there level. Kurt Angle did good in TNA and really helped them out. I can see Angle however making a brief appearance at a WWE ppv but only time will tell.

        There’s so much smoke, I believe there’s probably a fire. GOLDBERG has been in talks with WWE for a few years about coming back for one big match so that his young son can see him perform. Sting said in a recent interview that he signs one-year contracts with TNA every January, and every January he gets feelers from WWE. Then he sais he was interested in coming to WWE to face THE UNDERTAKER at WM XXX…
