It’s now less than a week until the mega match between Goldberg and Brock Lesnar, the anticipation is building. This will mark Goldberg’s first return to the ring in well over a decade. In a recent interview with Fox Sports, the 49-year-old took the chance to provide perspective on the match.
“He deserves a rematch from 12 years ago and he was, quite frankly, my door to get back in. Plus, Brock doesn’t care. He really doesn’t care about the consequences for either of us and he’s fearless. I know what Brock’s capable of better than most, I assure you. I’m in better cardio shape today than I was in my pro wrestling career and in the NFL. I hope to compete at around 270 which is 25 or 30 pounds less than what I weighed back in WCW. I may be limited with what I can do stylistically in the ring but our match won’t lack in physicality or passion.”
Goldberg sounds like he’s is in great physical shape leading up to the match and prepared for the clash of styles against Lesnar. However, there will be some limitations in terms of his physical ability because of his age and some ring rust. There will be some hurdles to jump, but there’s a chance that this could formulate into a strong performance.
The promos that have been cut in the last few weeks have helped build up plenty of steam. Their first face-to-face meeting on this week’s Raw was everything that was expected and more due to the intensity. That said, the wait will finally be over on Sunday night in Toronto.
