During the WWE Magazine interview, Ryback said comparisons between the two don't bother him, but that "people are misinformed."
"People see a big guy with a shaved head who's intense, and they draw those comparisons," said Ryback. "I will say this: Goldberg did this for the money. He was never a fan of wrestling. I do this because I have a passion for it, and that's the biggest difference between Goldberg and me. I'm not here to make five million dollars and then walk away. I'm here for life. And, I firmly believe that I'm much better than he was in the ring. He was great, and I was a fan of his when I was younger. But, I feel I'm a better athlete and wrestler than Goldberg ever was, and people are going to see that over time."
Goldberg said in response, "I'm flattered that throughout his rise people have been chanting my name. I don't think it's a knock on him whatsoever. "
"I take no offense to it. To be compared against a guy right now who is (going for a title) ... who hopefully will be a major superstar for these guys is kind of flattering."
"For people to still be chanting my name six years, seven years, eight years removed from the business—that's a huge honor. Any comparisons in the positive note is a honor for me."
Goldberg also made his weekly NFL picks with the show. Listeners can pick with Goldberg and the show at 4thAndPain.com.
The comments begin around the 8:30 mark in the video and last for about five minutes.
