WWE News: Goldberg not training in the ring yet
Goldberg talks about his training program and reveals why hasn't he been in the ring yet.
On episode 83 of Heated Conversations: Hosted by Booker T, Bill Goldberg, spoke about his upcoming return to the wrestling ring at Survivor Series against Brock Lesnar. Goldberg also discussed his preparation for the big event.
Although Goldberg has been training hard every day, he has not stepped foot in a professional wrestling ring to train yet. Here’s what he said:
"I haven't been in the ring yet. That's the one thing after those 12 years that is probably the most important to reacquaint yourself with, but I'm going in for one match. I'm not going to get into the ring for 20 days straight to reacclimate myself to hitting the ropes because, hopefully, the only thing that will be hitting is my fist hitting Brock's face and him hitting the mat, so the reality is I'm going to be taken to Suplex City. I'm going to take some suplexes in this thing. Yeah, but it is what it is. It ain't like I didn't play in the NFL, dude. I may be old, but I know what I'm getting myself into."
According to Goldberg, he has been training with “the biggest, baddest dudes on the planet” and knows how to prepare for a situation like this. Here is his say on the people’s opinion about his preparation.
“If people don't think that I know how to prepare for athletic competition at its highest level, then they've got something seriously wrong with them because I take this crap very seriously.”
Goldberg continued by speaking about his standards where he said, “I'm Goldberg, dude. I have a standard to uphold myself to. I'm greatly appreciative that anybody thinks I'm any good at anything, but if it makes me happy at something, then, I know people will be happy for me, so I'm just trying to push my butt as hard as I know how to do.”
Apparently, Goldberg’s goal is to able to press slam Brock Lesnar again. He stated “The last time they saw me, I was 290 [lbs.], and I was blowing fire out of my ears. And I was able to press a 290 lbs Brock Lesnar over my head. Well, my goal is to do the same damn thing when I walk in there.”
Goldberg has been focusing on Muay-Thai lately and is trying hard to be in the best possible shape for his comeback. Here is a glimpse of his training regimen.
