Goldberg has had many critics during his most recent WWE run, but none more vocal than NXT superstar Matt Riddle. Both were in Toronto's Scotiabank Arena last night, the MMA star for the SummerSlam Watch Along panel and Bill to totally obliterate Dolph Ziggler, and the pair experienced an awkward interaction backstage at the show.
The OB didn't hold back on discussing Goldberg whilst streaming SummerSlam alongside Pat McAfee, going into detail about the two's brief encounter of the bizarre kind.
Riddle explained that he was backstage when a big fella barged into him: none other than Goldberg.
"He goes, ‘we got some talking to do!’ And I’m like, ‘well we can talk anytime bro!’ He’s like, ‘yeah?’ And I’m like, ‘yeah!’ And I was like, ‘alright, bro, anytime.’ And he’s like, ‘I’m not your bro!’ And I’m like, ‘Alright, bro. Take it easy. whatever’ And then he’s like, ‘yeah, we’ll see. I’ll see ya later. And hey, it was a pleasure meeting you.’ And I go, ‘the pleasure was all mine, bro.’ And then he goes, ‘I’m not your bro.’ And then I walked away, I had to come here."
He said the meeting was filmed, though he does not expect WWE to air it. Meanwhile, he continues to campaign for a match opposite Big Willy. Coincidence? Watch this space.
Benjamin was born in 1987, and is still not dead. He variously enjoys classical music, old-school adventure games (they're not dead), and walks on the beach (albeit short - asthma, you know).
He's currently trying to compile a comprehensive history of video game music, yet denies accusations that he purposefully targets niche audiences. He's often wrong about these things.
