oldberg recently took part in an interview on Heated Conversations hosted By Booker T.
Below are the highlights:
On Wanting to Press Slam Brock Lesnar:
“The last time they saw me, I was 290 [lbs.], and I was blowing fire out of my ears. And I was able to press a 290 lbs. Brock Lesnar over my head. Well, my goal is to do the same damn thing when I walk in there. I won’t be 280 [lbs.] like I used to be, but what I bring into the cage or what I bring into the ring will be a completely different package than before, but it will still be the same guy. I’m doing a lot of muay thai kickboxing. I’m doing a lot of cross-training, a lot of footwork, a lot of boxing work.”
On Working Out But Not Stepping Into The Ring:
“I haven’t been in the ring yet. That’s the one thing after those 12 years that is probably the most important to reacquaint yourself with, but I’m going in for one match. I’m not going to get into the ring for 20 days straight to reacclimate myself to hitting the ropes because, hopefully, the only thing that will be hitting is my fist hitting Brock’s face and him hitting the mat, so the reality is I’m going to be taken to Suplex City. I’m going to take some suplexes in this thing. Yeah, but it is what it is. It ain’t like I didn’t play in the NFL, dude. I may be old, but I know what I’m getting myself into.”
On Having a Standard To Live Up To:
“I’m Goldberg, dude. I have a standard to uphold myself to. I’m greatly appreciative that anybody thinks I’m any good at anything, but if it makes me happy at something, then, I know people will be happy for me, so I’m just trying to push my butt as hard as I know how to do. And, hopefully, at the end of the day, people are happy with it. But truthfully, the only people that care in my mind right now are my wife and my son and I’m able to share something with them that is a gift. And if I can be that superhero to kids again in that spotlight for that short period of time, that’s something I value equally as important as giving my family experiences.”
