WWE News: Goldberg on how the current WWE locker room is different from the Attitude Era
What’s the story?
WWE Universal Champion Goldberg was a guest on the debut episode of the E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness podcast hosted by former WWE superstars Edge & Christian. Among several other topics, ‘The Myth’ spoke about how the WWE locker room now is different from how it used to be during the Attitude Era.
In case you didn’t know…
After leaving WCW in May 2002, Goldberg ventured to Japan for a brief period. His success there sparked WWE’s interest in him and he eventually made his debut for the company on an episode of Raw in March 2003.
Throughout his year-long run in the WWE, the WCW legend remained undefeated in singles matches and also held the World Heavyweight Championship for a few months. His final match during his first stint with the company came at WrestleMania XX where he defeated Brock Lesnar.
The heart of the matter
In Goldberg’s opinion, the current WWE locker room does not have as many big characters as they had back in the Attitude Era. Here’s what ‘The Iconic’ Goldberg told Edge and Christian:
“It just seems to me that it’s just different, man. You don’t have the big characters that you did back in the day. I mean, you do, but I don’t know. It’s hard to explain the landscape right now. It’s just completely different from when we were there. It’s also having the talent to be able to do that and having the trust in them. And maybe there aren’t as many as there were back in the day. There aren’t, that have the ability to go out there and wing it and feel it. It seems as if it’s a little bit more structured now.”
With exactly a week left to go for WrestleMania 33, Goldberg’s focus will entirely be on maintaining his perfect record against Brock Lesnar and retaining his WWE Universal title against ‘The Beast’.
A loss for Goldberg at WrestleMania 33 will perhaps bring the curtains down on his career once and for all. However, it will also be quite a feather in Brock Lesnar’s cap, as he will become the first man in WWE history to beat ‘The Myth’ in a singles match.
