Bill Goldberg has recalled what it was like dealing with Donald Trump on a television show while criticizing the former US President for having no social skills.
It was in 2010 when Bill Goldberg was a part of the television show “The Celebrity Apprentice” that was hosted by Donald Trump.
Even though Goldberg and Trump are both in the WWE Hall of Fame, the former WWE Universal Champion doesn’t speak fondly about his time on the show.
The celebrity version of Trump’s “The Apprentice” show saw well-known (and some lesser-known) celebrities competing against eachother by showing their business acumen. The goal of the show was to beat other teams in contests while raising money for their charities.
As for Donald Trump, this was six years before he would go on to become the 45th President of the United States in the 2016 election.
During an appearance on Roman Atwood’s “The Untold Stories” show, Goldberg shared his experiences on the Celebrity Apprentice. Goldberg admitted that he tried to get fired right away.
“Do you know that I tried to get fired from The Apprentice from the first day I arrived? It was one of the most miserable experiences of mine.”
Even though he tried to get fired, Goldberg ended up getting “fired” in week six of the show’s airing. Singer Bret Michaels would go on to win the season.
Goldberg continued to talk about his experience on the show while calling Trump a “piece of work” among other things.
“He was a piece of work, man. I knew that dude wasn’t gonna be the most popular guy in the world when I figured out that he really didn’t have any social skills. Like, zero … You’d go up and you shake his hand, and he has no social skills. He doesn’t know how to interact with a person one-on-one without putting a front up. He was uncomfortable.”
In 2016, Goldberg would return to WWE as an active competitor again. He went on to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2018.
