Goldberg on defeating Hulk Hogan

“At the time, it was Monday Night Wars, WWF against WCW. WWF is historically known to be run by Vince McMahon. When you get a guy like Hulk Hogan in the business, who is arguably the pillar of professional wrestling, when he comes to WCW, an upstart company that is led by younger people, you follow his lead.”

“He was running hot with that NWO bad guy character, you’re only as good as a wrestler as your opponent, right, and so they needed some big monstrous ugly dude like me to beat him.”

“So I fit the bill pretty well, and I did. He chose to do it, and it was a perfect move for the business at the time, and he’s very unselfish.”
