UK outlet Metro recently caught up with Goldberg and asked him about his two most recent WWE appearances. He discussed how he reacted to the negative feedback surrounding his match agains The Undertaker, and why he came back to face Dolph Ziggler at SummerSlam.

Check out highlights below:

On the negative reception that his match with The Undertaker received:

It was very important to nobody but me, OK? People were very critical of me, and I’ll be honest, I never really respond to it – I do care what people think. But when I know the whole deal and everything, it’s like, come on guys. Give me a break – I knocked myself out, dude. Now let me see you walk down the street – let alone pick up a 320lbs dude – when you’re knocked out.

Why he came back to face Dolph Ziggler:

I think for me, what the Ziggler match did, was reaffirm my own self-confidence, not for anyone else. But I just needed to go out there and go through the motions, and know, man, just ’cause you stumble once, [it] doesn’t define you.
