Default Interview Highlights: Goldberg talks about life after WWE, rips on life in WWE

Quote: reader Jim Logan sent the following summary of Bill Goldberg's interview with a talk radio station in Edmonton Alb...

Today I happened to have the radio on a Talk Radio station in Edmonton, Alberta (the site of Backlash) and I caught an interview with Bill Goldberg. This radio station is mainly for the older adult crowd. It does not have shock jocks or anything like that. It is the station that broadcasts Edmonton Oiler hockey games.

I was really surprised to hear Goldberg's feelings toward the WWE. Read on for the scoop.

The announcers were talking about Goldberg and saying that he is currently in Edmonton filming the movie Santa's Slay. The announcers did not really seem to know who he was. They referred to him as an ex-pro wrestler who was in the WWE before he retired. They said they thought he was at Wrestlemania XX, but they did not believe he wrestled there. [Ironically although he actually did participate in a match, I don't think he wrestled either].

Thankfully they passed the interview on to someone else who conducted the phone interview with Goldberg. I took notes during the interview, so the text that follows is pretty accurate.

Goldberg said:

- Filming in Edmonton and area for Santa's Slay ends Saturday. He said in the movie he plays the son of Satan who has been good for 1,000 years, but decides it is time to create havoc and kill a bunch of people while wearing a Santa suit. He said it is like wrestling but it does not hurt as much.

- The announcer asked if it was his first movie (Bill's ego took a hit here) and Bill said it was actually like his fifth film.

- Goldberg said he wants to do more acting since there are fewer tolls on the body. He said the pay is better for the difficulty of the work, and that he does not have to get beat up by 300-pound men.

- He said he liked Edmonton. The people are great, the hockey is great, but it is too cold.

- He was asked what his plans are from here. Goldberg said after he leaves Edmonton at the end of the week, he is going to Hawaii for a couple of TV projects, then he goes to L.A. to finish the last scene on Santa's Slay.

The announcer asked what his long-term plans are. Goldberg said he would take some downtime, look into more movies (but did not want to reveal projects since it is a jinx). Then he would do charity work and wrestle a bit in Japan. He offhandedly mentioned that the WWE is very restricting on his life and that he wants to get back to doing things that his WWE schedule would not allow.

- He was asked if he would be at Backlash PPV in Edmonton. Goldberg said that he does not want to disappoint anyone in Edmonton, because they have been so great to him, but he would NOT be at Backlash. He clarified that his contract expired on March 14 and that he no longer works for the WWE. Then he said there are "not too many plans in re-signing."

He followed by saying that he is "done with the soap opera called the WWE." He said he is not out of pro wrestling altogether. He still has a contract in Japan. He said when that contract is up, he will re-sign in Japan.

The announcer asked if he would re-sign with the WWE. Goldberg said "the WWE is SO ridiculous with the up-down swing. It is like being in a circus." He said it was not an ideal situation working for Vince and the WWE and at this time in his life, he does not need to be around "all that stuff."

Then Goldberg went on about how he loves hockey and how he has seen great hockey in Edmonton. He was asked what his favorite team was, but he said that he knows so many players on all the teams that he does not have a favorite. He said he just loves to watch a good game. They thanked each other and said goodbye.

A very interesting interview... He was never pressured to answer any tough questions but he seemed eager to speak out on the WWE. I guess we will not see him in the WWE for a while


Thoughts on the cheap shots and Goldberg not completly out of wrestling......
