Goldberg: Modern Wrestlers “Just Aren’t Deep”


WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg thinks used to be better in the world of pro wrestling.

Goldberg made his name in the wrestling world in WCW by dominating opponents in very quick matches on his way to racking up a huge win streak that topped out at 173-0. During that time Goldberg won the WCW World Championship from Hulk Hogan as fans got behind his no-nonsense, hard-hitting matches.

Speaking on the Chicago Sports Podcast, Goldberg was asked for his opinion on the state of current wrestling and was adamant that things used to be better in his heyday and said that things today lack depth:

“The internal storylines, I don’t think, are better. The characters, I surely know aren’t better. The guys that are doing their thing right now and leading the charge, they’re doing a damn good job, they’re just not deep. That’s all. They just aren’t deep.

“It’s hard to have a couple of different people carrying the flag and be able to hand it off to a proper person and keep…I’m trying to keep this as vanilla as possible. It’s tough to have the depth. I think they’re lacking in that area. That’s all. Period, end of story. I don’t like getting into it, I don’t like people talking sh*t.”

When did Goldberg last wrestle?

The former WWE Universal Champion last competed at Elimination Chamber in February 2022 when he challenged Roman Reigns for that very title in Saudi Arabia. Reigns retained the title via referee stoppage.

Goldberg has since hinted that he could be part of a retirement tour suggesting that his time in the ring is not completely over.
