Goldberg has taken a shot at a WWE legend today during an interview. The WCW icon has not competed in a match since his loss to Roman Reigns at the 2022 Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event.

In an interview with Busted Open Radio, the former WWE star was asked about Bret Hart. The Hitman still holds a grudge against Goldberg for kicking him in the head at WCW Starrcade 1999. The 57-year-old stated that he loved Hart, but claimed he should work on his attitude and grow up.

"The Bret Hart thing, it just saddens me as a human being, that’s all. First and foremost, I would never wish ill will upon any opponent or anyone like that. To have an accident like that happen and end someone’s career, especially someone who’s one of the best that ever was, 100 percent, it su*ks. I’m not asking anybody to understand it, I’m just saying leave me alone. It is what it is, come on, man. I love you, Bret, don’t be such a pr***, that’s all. Grow up," he said.

Goldberg added that there is nothing he can do about it now and wished Bret Hart would accept his apology.

"I always said I was going to kill him but, you know me, I can’t do that. I love the guy, he’s an icon, right? Just get over it, that’s all, I’m sorry. What do you want me to do? As a human being, yeah, it saddens me that he can’t come to grips with the fact that it was…it su*ks," he added. [H/T: F4WOnline]

Former WWE star Goldberg says the kick to Bret Hart's head was unintentional

Goldberg and Bret Hart have been going back and forth about the incident for years.

During an interview on The Michael Kay Show in 2022, the former Universal Champion in WWE stated that the kick was not intentional and has said it a million times. However, he noted that Hart would not forgive him and blamed him for ending his career.

"What else can I say? I said I was sorry and that it was unintentional, it was the furthest thing from my mind, I dont know, a million times? And of those a million times, he's come back with, 'Yes, was intentional, he's a punk, he didn't know what he was doing and ruined my career.'" [From 01:14 to 01:31]

Goldberg recently went off on former WWE CEO Vince McMahon for not giving him a retirement match and also claimed All Elite Wrestling was "too cheesy" for his services. It will be interesting to see if the veteran is given a proper retirement match in the TKO-led company sometime in the future.
