Recently on Sam Roberts' Wrestling Podcast, professional broadcaster Sam Roberts aired an interview he conducted with former WWE Intercontinental Champion Ryback. During the interview, Ryback discussed whether the 'Goldberg' chants ever bothered him and whether Tensai, also known as Albert, sandbagged him on the October 1, 2012 edition of RAW.
According to Ryback, the 'Goldberg' chants never bothered him.
"It never bothered me. I knew the fans were very loyal to him because he was at the top of WCW, came in here, and had a good run." Ryback continued, "I knew in time people would become loyal to me and it would get rid of it."
Ryback indicated that the 'Goldberg' chants are now few and far between.
"There will be a few smart alecks who try to do 'Goldberg, Goldberg', but it gets overwhelmed instantly with 'Feed Me More'."
While Ryback claimed that he never had a problem with the 'Goldberg' chants, he said that Vince McMahon did not like the chants and would demand, "we need to have some control over this."
As for the botched Shell Shocked muscle buster against Tensai on RAW in 2012, Ryback said that Tensai is not the type of person who would sandbag anyone and does not know whether it was a test from the office.
"[Tensai] would never go out there and try to sabotage anything and if that was a test, it didn't bother me at all. I'm a home run hitter. I go out there and learn to swing for the fences". Ryback added, "[t]o this day, it still blows my mind that that happened. It was one of those things."
Ryback suggested that the error probably came from his end, though battling the flu could not have helped matters.
"I don't like to use excuses, but I was deathly sick that day, like, the flu, just miserable, but still strength-wise, felt fine. It shouldn't have been a problem. I just believe I hooked my head high on him that day. I didn't get low enough."
In addition to these topics, Ryback also talked about owing everything he has in life to the Secret. To check out the rest of the show, click here.
