Kurt Angle: “I felt kind of bad for Goldberg”

Last updated

WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle recently discussed how he felt bad for Goldberg during his initial run for the company back in the early 2000s.

Speaking on his The Kurt Angle Show podcast, Angle revealed how WWE felt about the WCW legend during his run in 2004.

He made it pretty clear. I did discuss it with him one day. But I felt kind of bad for Goldberg. You have to remember when he was in WCW, he was marketed differently. He was a killer. He was a beast” Angle began.

“His matches lasted two or three minutes tops. In WWE, when they brought him in, they tried to make them into it like a long-term worker where he’s wrestling 10 or 15-minute matches and that didn’t work for Goldberg” Angle noted.

“The WWE eventually smartened up because after Goldberg left after this, and he came back in 2014, 2015, 2016” Angle continued.

“They [WWE] decided to market him as a beast, as a killer, and his matches were one minute, two minutes, three minutes. That’s how you make money with Goldberg and WWE finally smartened up” the Olympic Gold Medallist concluded.
