Reason Behind Goldberg’s Head Gash Revealed


Goldberg has a unique entrance where is walks into the ring from his private room backstage. Hitting the door is something that he does off camera to get the adrenaline going.

The heart of the matter

Passionate as Goldberg is, he headbutted the door too hard while making his way towards the ring. The incident occurred backstage and was not aired on RAW. However, Goldberg bled for a good part of his promo.

Sasha Banks was backstage when Goldberg was getting ready to make his entrance back in November and told Wrestlinginc about witnessing the head banging ritual first hand.

He came up to me and said ‘hi’ and I was like, ‘wait, you’re saying ‘hi’ to me? Oh my god! You’re Goldberg!’ And right before he went out, he looked at me and Bayley and was like, ‘you didn’t see this’. He headbanged the door just to get himself psyched and ready. Like, that is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen in my life!”

Goldberg looked a bit shaken after the incident. He had to start over a couple of times before regaining composure. Despite the injury, Goldberg went on to cut a savage promo before he was interrupted by Paul Heyman.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
