Scott Hall Takes a Shot at Goldberg

Posted by Steve Carrier on Thursday, October 24th, 2013


There apparently seems to be no love lost between Scott Hall and Goldberg. This morning on Twitter, a fan wrote to Scott Hall, “Goldberg! Goldberg! What does that remind you of @scotthallnwo.” He responded with the following:

Goldberg!goldberg! What does that remind you off @scotthallnwo @SCOTTHALLNWO

His slight is in reference to Goldberg having a reputation within the professional wrestling industry of taking his character too seriously.

In the past, Goldberg has labeled Hall as “unprofessional” and blamed him for a near career-ending injury at a December 1999 WCW event where he smashed the windows of a limousine with his bare hands. He lost a large amount of blood due to this and came within one centimeter of having to have an arm amputated.

“I should’ve killed him but I didn’t,” Goldberg told Mike Mooneyham of The Post & Courier in a 2001 interview discussing the incident. “Scott Hall is very unprofessional and he often breaks character and does things I don’t agree with. I try to be professional and set a positive example, but unfortunately he doesn’t share the same views. Vince Russo couldn’t control him and we had an issue, and instead of being unprofessional and making him pay, I took my frustrations out on that limousine.”

EXCLUSIVE: Who Should Sheamus Face When He Returns?

  • Mike Arienti

    Hall’s comment is also directed at the person who tweeted him, an obvious Goldberg mark.

  • Josh Cervera

    Scott hall went from the “bad guy” to the “fat guy” lol

    • themans

      actually he’s in great shape now … due to DDP Yoga and living with DDP for a couple months.

      • Josh Cervera

        I know i was kidding lol

    • allan

      Actually he’s in a lot better shape now and could whoop you easy

      • Josh Cervera

        LOL , take a deep breath was a joke..

  • themans

    it bothers Scott Hall when people are marks for themselves because Scott always went out of his way to put people over including even when it wasn’t even in the script or supposed to happen (specifically against Jericho one time in WCW)

    • Louisa Baton

      No one is saying he isn’t nice; in fact I’ll go out on a limb and say of all of those top DX guys he was by far the nicest. He just wasn’t very responsible at times. You have to understand he’s sick. People don’t understand illness. They understand crazy, lazy and being slow but they don’t understand mental disease. Hall is an addict. He wouldn’t hurt a soul if he could help it and he’s done more damage to himself than to anyone but he still has hurt people.

  • Louisa Baton

    Poor Scott Hall looks terrible, I remember the time he was really drunk at a Nitro live show where they had this great idea to throw a beach type party. He was stumbling around the pool when he met with an unexpected occurrence. (He stumbled and fell into the pool and they showed him swimming back to the other end.) Unfortunately; it drew the attention of the cameraman long enough to see it but not long enough before they signaled him to stop showing Scott. I like Bill and Scott and I’m sad to see they don’t like each other but I can understand. They aren’t like one another.

    • Mike Arienti

      It was during a match and he was thrown into the pool…

    • themans

      I sincerely hope you understand that was part of the storyline… I really do… And why are you saying he looks terrible… he looks great. He’s over 50. Stop looking at the photo they chose from 6 years ago.

      • Louisa Baton

        Just because he’s over 50 doesn’t mean he has to look like he’s sick. Sting is a year and 7 months younger and he looks great. Scott looks like he has lived a hard life. It really wasn’t part of a story line. When it first happened they said that he was drunk and fell in the pool.That was when pwi really told on people.

        • themans

          What the hell is wrong with you people… Its not helpful to bring this stuff up when he’s like 6 months sober. He looks fine.

          • allan

            He look great look at him 1 year ago he’s was 30 pound heavier and could barely move

        • allan

          Sting looks great, funny I though he had a gut and was balding… And could barely wrestle anymore… Must be another sting….

    • allan

      He doesn’t look terrible he looks great wtf are you talking about he use to look like shit and drink a lot. Way to root for him you all judge a 50 plus year old man who could whoop you

      • Louisa Baton

        I’m not trying to make things worse. I can only go by what I see and that picture is what I see. Someone told me it was old and I say I’m sorry if that’s true. Don’t blame me for looking at that picture and thinking he looks bad.

  • themans

    haha, goldberg trying to play it off. He was supposed to use a bat to smash the windows and tried to act cool and tried to use his arm. He almost had to have the arm amputated… Nice try Goldberg, you almost lost your arm because your pathetically stupid, not “because of Scott Hall”… are you 8 years old?

  • Zuckerton

    So Goldberg got angry, smashed a limousine window and blames Scott Hall because…why? Goldberg’s the idiot who smashed the window, had he controlled his temper, that wouldn’t have happened.

    • Jeff Rittenour

      hahaha – what a tool Goldberg is. He shelved himself and THUS the main plans for the company in regards to the title picture (by gunning through the nWo on his way back to Hogan) and it’s Scott Hall’s fault….hahahahaha

  • themans

    He looks better than PLENTY of wrestlers his age who didn’t have the “lifestyle” he did… We can all see it.. this is the internet, information is available

  • themans

    You know what, In fact he looks GREAT. If I look that close to how I did in my 20s when I’m that age I’ll be happy. I’m just wondering what It says about you people that when someone is 6 months sober and looking great, you still for some strange reason want them to be fat and in trouble. Well he isn’t…. He’s doing very well and you should take a look at yourself why you can’t acknowledge what he’s currently doing. (which is very positive, helping his son out and all)

  • James MacKay

    You people seem to make up a lot of shit about two people you don’t even know. Whether or not Scott Hall broke character doesn’t mean he’s responsible for Goldberg doing something stupid to Limousine windows. How can Goldberg Blame him when he’s got full control over his own two hands…….it wasn’t Scott Hall punching the window with Goldbergs hands. Scott Hall is a Legend from his WWF days and Goldbergs all but two year run in WCW and lame run in WWE does not even make him an equal. Goldberg got pushed far too quickly and believed his own hype. How can he be a good role model for children if in interviews he says dumb shit like ‘I should have killed the him but I didn’t’ ? He’s a two faced boob.

  • allan

    Goldberg should work less on his character and more on his horrible wrestling the shit that ended a true wrestlers career Bret hart

    • Mike Arienti

      I was there. The kick never actually touched Bret. He whiplashed himself trying to avoid it.

      • allan

        Bullshit watch it. He cracked his skull you don’t get that off whiplash
