Goldberg makes SCATHING comment about modern WWE main eventers

Last updated

WWE Hall of Famer Bill Goldberg recently expressed his candid views on the current state of WWE, drawing comparisons to the iconic Monday Night Wars era.

Speaking on the Chicago Sports Podcast, Goldberg held back in his critique of today’s WWE product, but it was still pretty clear what he was getting at.

Goldberg: His Take on Modern WWE

Goldberg acknowledged the hard work and dedication of the current WWE superstars leading the charge.

However, he felt that while these superstars are doing an admirable job, there’s a noticeable lack of depth in their character development and storylines. He stated, “The internal storylines, I don’t think, are better. The characters, I surely know, aren’t better.”

He further elaborated on the challenges faced by the current roster, mentioning the difficulty in having only a few individuals carry the brand’s flag.

Goldberg emphasised the importance of having a deep roster where the responsibility can be seamlessly passed from one superstar to another. In his words, “It’s hard to have a couple of different people carrying the flag and be able to hand it off to a proper person.”
