Former WWE and WCW star Bill Goldberg, who is featured a special bonus character in the new WWE 2K17 video game (as seen in the video above), recently spoke with the folks at 411Mania.com about his recent contact with WWE and the upcoming UFC return of Brock Lesnar. Below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On if WWE has contacted him about a return:
“WWE has not called me to be a part of any roster. My relationship with WWE stands with the video game and the video game only. If they want to extend an olive branch and pick up the phone, then I will make a comment on that once they do it. But prior to that, nothing’s been done.”
On if WWE has contacted him about a Hall Of Fame induction:
“No sir. I have not had any contact with them on that front whatsoever.”
On Brock Lesnar vs. Mark Hunt at UFC 200:
“I’ve known Mark Hunt for a long time, and I’ve known Brock for a while. I think that it’s a very interesting match-up. I think it’s good on the UFC for making that match-up. I think it’s an exciting one. I think they both have advantages. At the end of the day, Brock’s got to get it to the ground. Period. End of story. Because he’s standing in front of a guy that throws shots that don’t want to put you to sleep, they want to put you in the ground. You get hit by one of those right hands or an uppercut or a left hook by Mark Hunt, then you know that **** is on and that cage is locked, and there’s nowhere to go. Conversely, Brock is one hell of a wrestler, and he’s a big monster. If he gets his hands on Hunt, there’s a myriad of things that he can do to him. His ground and pound is pretty damn strong, and obviously, we know about his wrestling ability. If he’s a smart kid, then he’s been working on his hands and working on his sparring. At the end of the day, when two combatants get into the ring and/or cage, it’s anybody’s game, especially in MMA. So it’s going to be a fight not to be missed. I’m very much looking forward to it. It’s a hell of a card at UFC 200. Obviously, as Brock’s friend, I want him to go out and kick some ass. I’ll be checking it out.”
