Former RAW General Manager Eric Bischoff gave his thoughts on Goldberg beating Bray Wyatt on the latest episode of his podcast, 83 Weeks. Bischoff said that he was surprised with what happened at Super ShowDown because, during the former RAW GM's last run in WWE, the company couldn't produce The Fiend's merch fast enough.

Bischoff also said that in his opinion, he saw The Fiend as a character in the same vein as The Undertaker. He also said the following:

Given the trajectory of The Fiend character, I was really surprised. Nothing against Bill. He's not a full-timer. He's a part-timer, and Bill pretty much s--t the bed last time he was in Saudi Arabia so I found that shocking particularly as quickly as they did it. A lot of that may have been due to the fact that Bill is not really the right guy to go out there and have a 20-minute match with a guy like The Fiend. H/T: WINC

Goldberg will now defend the WWE Universal Championship at WrestleMania against Roman Reigns. As for The Fiend, he will face 16-time world champion, John Cena.
