Goldberg Realizes He Is Not Young Anymore, Exhausted From SummerSlam

Who’s next for The Myth?

Bill Goldberg defeated Dolph Ziggler in singles action this past Sunday at WWE SummerSlam.

The victory in Toronto allowed WWE to re-establish Goldberg as the legend that he is after his nightmarish performance against The Undertaker at Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia.

Goldberg had an eventful SummerSlam week – showing up on Monday Night RAW, filming for NCIS LA, then encountering Matt Riddle backstage and finally wrestling Ziggler – together it turned out to be more than what the 52-year-old can chew at this stage of his life.

On Booker T’s Hall Of Fame podcast, The Myth revealed how he’s doing post-SummerSlam.

“Mentally, I’m doing great, man. Physically, I’m doing pretty damn good, but I’m exhausted, man. I had a week from hell, I ain’t gonna complain cause I had a lot of cool things that I got to do, but travel-wise, I covered some ground, man and I can’t run like I used to, but, damn.”

It’s safe to assume that Goldberg isn’t done yet; per rumours, he could potentially wrestle at major PPVs down the line.

Given the challenging situation Vince McMahon is going through at the moment, Goldberg could be used as a major attraction (like The Phenom) to boost ticket sales and ratings.

Goldberg has worked two matches so far in 2019 and a third one is only a matter of time with October’s Saudi Arabian event almost around the corner. Although there’s no word on this, WWE might as well book The Myth for a special appearance on SmackDown’s debut show on FOX (October 4).

Per rumors, Goldberg and Riddle could go 1-on-1 in a dream match at WrestleMania 36. The seeds for the showdown have already been planted and it’s only a matter of time before The King of Bros makes the main roster jump and WWE makes the booking official.
