Goldberg Wants To Fight Cain Velasquez, Says He Would “Smash Him In The Ring”



WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg is not the one to say no to a fight, and seems like he has picked out the next superstar on his list. Goldberg last wrestled at WWE SummerSlam last month, where he defeated Dolph Ziggler in quick fashion.

The former World Heavyweight Champion recently spoke with Helen Yee of Eyes On The Game, and expressed interest in facing former UFC Heavyweight Champion, Cain Velasquez.

Velasquez recently transitioned to professional wrestling, after spending years grinding it out in the MMA circuit. He had a long and successful career in UFC, where he triumphed over Goldberg’s nemesis, Brock Lesnar.

Goldberg was impressed by Velasquez’s debut performance at AAA Triplemania. Goldberg himself transitioned to professional wrestling after a football career, and felt that the wrestling business offers a lot to all those involved.

“Cain’s doing great. I saw a little bit of the coverage of his match, and, you know, put it this way…anyone in professional sports who was in that sport for a lifelong dream, like myself playing football, that’s all I ever wanted to do. It’s a great alternative, this wrestling business offers a lot, it really does.”

Goldberg felt that he could defeat Velasquez in two seconds, and make quick work of him, similar to his wins against Dolph Ziggler and Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series 2016.

“I’d still smash him in the ring, I’d wrestle Cain in the ring in two seconds. I’d wrestle anybody, you know who I am, that’s what I do. I’m just saying, he’s got a lot of potential.”

Velasquez teamed up with AEW Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes at AAA Triplemania, and there are rumors of him signing with a major company soon. He is said to be in talks with both WWE and AEW, and it remains to be seen where he ends up.

If Cain does join WWE in the future, a matchup against Goldberg would create headlines across the combat sports industry.
