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.
