Former WCW Champion and WWE Superstar Goldberg was recently a guest on the Good Morning Football show earlier today to promote his Survivor Series match with Brock Lesnar this Sunday. You can check out some highlights from the conversation below:
His win streak in WCW:
"It was organic, the best part of it was we didn't know what was going on. Week after week we gave the people what they wanted to see. In the day and age of television where you could actually do that, and you could do it in an entertaining way -- we just did what the people wanted. So each and every week we listened to the people, we gave them -- we fed -- it was basically like feeding Romans to the lions. And that's basically what it was. People enjoyed it and is was something different, I'm still something different. I'm not a guy who comes out and brags and boasts and then does goofy stuff. I'm the Mike Tyson of wrestling, I come in, I smash people, I go home, and I eat dinner."
Being nervous because of his family watching him perform at Survivor Series:
"Hell yeah I'm nervous, look at me I'm sweating. I'm very nervous all the time, but like I say, if you're nervous it means you're alive, it means you're at the top of your game. If I wasn't nervous I'd flip out, I wouldn't know what was going on. The setting in Toronto is gonna be a little strange, I can't predict what's gonna happen, I can't predict how they're gonna feel, I can only say it's gonna be a special moment for everybody involved. At the end of the day I have to bring it home."
Meeting his wife on set of the movie, Santa's Slay:
"A Jewish director, a Jewish lead playing Santa Claus, killing people. There's something funny about that. It was awesome man, I had a great time [filming the movie]. The best thing in the entire movie was not only did I kind of get to have a sleigh driven by a buffalo, but most importantly I met my wife on set. Three and a half months after we met I asked her to marry me, and its been the most wonderful time of my life ever since. She was doing stunts. It was a strip club scene. I go into the strip joint, there's like 50 naked girls there, and who do I come out with as my wife? The only girl who had clothes on. I'm Santa Claus, I come into the place, I kill a couple of people on my way in, then the bartender and a couple of patrons don't like it very much, so they chase me throughout the bar. I hop up to the table, then I hop up to a swing, well she's sitting on the swing, so I'm in an extremely precarious situation if you would look at the logistics of me hanging from the swing, she's sitting on the swing, then I was very uncomfortable. And being 'Goldberg', I mean you're supposed to be the guy, right? So I'm sweating more than I am now, I couldn't even look up at her and she taps me on the shoulder and she goes 'are you alright, buddy?' And I said 'yeah, I'm fine' but I couldn't look up, obviously, and she says 'usually before a guy and I get this close he buys me a beer first'. And I look up at her and I said, 'I love you.'"
