During a recent appearance at the Olympia Expo, Goldberg spoke with Helen Yee of Eyes On The Game, and was asked about his career, and things eventually turned to his thoughts on Cain Velasquez.
When asked about Cain Velasquez – who has been a surprisingly solid pro wrestler in recent times – Goldberg had nothing but praise for the UFC legend. “Cain’s doing great,” he said. “ I saw a little bit of the coverage of his match, and you know, put it this way, anyone in professional sports who was in that sport for a lifelong dream like myself, play football, that’s all I ever wanted to do, it’s a great alternative, this wrestling business offers a lot, it really does. And for guys who are high-level professional athletes to try and make the transition, especially with what Cain knows and what he’s done in the past, it’s a perfect, easy transition. I’m not gonna say easy, but it’s easier than someone who’s never done anything like that before.”
Goldberg went on to say that while he doesn’t know Velasquez personally, his ability to face adversity in the UFC has been inspiring, and that he would wrestle him if he were able. “I’d wrestle Cain in the ring in two seconds,” he said.”I’d wrestle anybody, you know who I am. But I’m just saying, he’s got a lot of potential, and it’s really cool.” With Velasquez making a surprising rise throughout professional wrestling, who knows if one day he’ll end up having a match against Goldberg.
