WWE Hall of Famer Bill Goldberg offered a glimpse into the divergent dynamics between his experiences working in WCW and WWE.
In an interview on the Steve & Captain Evil: The Podcast, when a fan inquired about the distinctions between the two wrestling promotions, Goldberg revealed significant differences in their organisational structures and the influential figures behind the scenes. Bill described WCW as an environment “run by the inmates,” pointing to the considerable influence held by luminaries such as Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, and Hulk Hogan. In contrast, WWE operated under the singular dominance of Vince McMahon. According to Bill, navigating the WWE landscape required a delicate approach – presenting ideas to McMahon as if they were his own was key to success.
The best way that I can describe it is that WCW was run by the inmates. You got Kevin Nash, you got Scott Hall, you got Hulk Hogan, and on the flip side of the coin, you have the 800-pound gorilla whose name is Vince McMahon. As long as you go to Vince and make sure every idea you have sounds like it came from his mouth, you’re good.
Despite expressing fond memories of his time in WCW and the camaraderie among the talent, Goldberg voiced concerns about the trustworthiness of some colleagues.
I had the time of my life in WCW; it was awesome, we were killing WWE, and it was like a small band of brothers against this big conglomerate. But a lot of those brothers were deceitful and villainous.
What Does Goldberg Think About Sting?
Goldberg stated that Sting made him respect wrestling. He stated that Sting is one of the best human beings on the planet and that when he was in the ring with him he had the time of his life.
