The man who holds the distinct record of having the longest undefeated streak in sports-entertainment history, Goldberg, joined The Monday Night Mayhem Radio Network for a special edition of the critically-acclaimed "Noonan Speaks." As many wrestling fans across the globe remember, Jimmy Noonan worked as the WWE’s Head Of Security when Goldberg came into World Wrestling Entertainment, and they instantly hit it off & became good friends…even to this day. Goldberg described to The Mayhem Nation just why him & Jimmy struck an accord in such a quick fashion. "One of the main reasons we got along was no BS, no backhandedness, and we treated each other like gentlemen."
Goldberg debuted in World Wrestling Entertainment the night after WrestleMania XIX at The Key Arena in Seattle, WA — which many people to this day believe as one of the most underrated ‘Mania’s in history. Jimmy asked Bill what his thoughts were when waiting to come out & exactly what was going through his head that night. "I would be remiss if I didn’t tell you it was anti-climatic. I’ve never been a guy to mess with the book or anything, but I didn’t think it was the right time to do it. I think the timing was really good. I went into the WWE with my back against the wall & my fists waiting for something to happen, even though I knew something would happen. It really wasn’t a memorable night for me; it was in one sense, but it wasn’t in another, and I have mixed feelings about it." A large majority of fans still feel to this day that Goldberg should have debuted the night before at WrestleMania (at Safeco Field) in some type of run-in…to which Bill agrees. "I think that would have been better. Something along those lines would have been better than the way I was brought out. But like I said, I’, not the type of guy who tries to steer the ship. I’m not the creative minds that come up with all the ideas…I was just the guy who could say ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to an idea. Granted, I did come into the WWE will full creative control, but I just never really wanted to use it, so I kinda’ succumbed to all the BS they put me through."
