People have certainly been opinionated on Goldberg making his return to WWE in time to face Bobby Lashley at SummerSlam.
One man who has recently been particularly outspoken is former WWE Tag Team Champion René Duprée, who has called Goldberg “the sh*ts”.
Speaking on That 90’s Wrestling Podcast, the former La Resistance member discussed an injury he suffered from Goldberg and how little he, and others, rate him.
Yeah, he dislocated my collarbone. We [La Resistance] had a pre-tape in the back with Goldberg and he hit me with the French flag and we had to do 5 takes. To this day, if I try to flex it, it still hurts. Yeah, he’s the sh*ts. He’s horrible, many wrestlers will tell you that.
To me, they (WWE) must be desperate. That’s the only thing I can figure. They can’t create new stars or they don’t have confidence in the people they have.
Previous runs in WWE for Goldberg haven’t ended well, in particular following his WrestleMania XX match against Brock Lesnar.
We’ll have to wait and see if this run proves more fruitful.
