Well it looks like we have another veteran and legendary wrestler who agrees with The Undertaker calling today’s generation of wrestlers soft. Taker did an interview where he stated wrestlers lack an edge and are soft. Bill Goldberg, a WWE Hall of Famer, was a guest on the most recent episode of Corey Graves Podcast called After The Bell. He held nothing back when talking with Graves and he was honest about how the locker room culture has changed and not for the better in 2021.
Here’s some quotes from Goldberg:
“I don’t think things could go like that back in the day in the current day,” Goldberg mentioned. We should say that Goldberg said this before his response to Graves about The Undertaker’s criticism of the current WWE product. “When you hear the comments about me coming back and doing one or two matches a year, how people are like, ‘He doesn’t deserve it, he never paid his dues, he was never on the road and these people are on the road…’ Hey, man, people forget very quickly what all of us did back in the day to earn a spot we are in now and I am one of the luckiest guys in the world.”
Goldberg absolutely agrees with Taker evaluation of wrestlers today by saying, “But yes, I believe, comparatively, the business is soft, but the business is in 2021, so things have to change and things have to be different.” Goldberg went on to tell the younger talent to grow a thicker skin and accept when they are being criticized. “Like I said, times are quite different than they were back in my day, however people are soft,” he believes. “People will take offense to things way too quickly. Get a thicker skin, boys and girls, that’s all I can say. When legends came in when I was in the business, in the beginning. I was greatly appreciative of the eyes they brought to our product and one day those young kids are going to be just like me and I hope karma comes back to bite them in the ass, that’s all I can say. Because at 54 years old, I don’t know one of them that could be doing what I do.”
Goldberg will face Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship at this Sunday’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view.
