Goldberg Guest Starring in ‘The Goldbergs’ on ABC

Soon-to-be WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg is set to guest star in the ABC comedy series ‘the Goldbergs’ on March 21st, playing the role of Coach Nick Mellor. The former WWE Universal Champion will play opposite comedy actor Bryan Callen who portrays Coach Rick Mellor. The two brothers have a strained relationship in the 80’s based sitcom.

In a press release promoting the episode, the show’s executive producer Adam F. Goldberg praised the former WCW main eventer for his on-screen performance. Goldberg (the wrestler) also comments on the experience of filming the episode.

“(Bill) Goldberg is a legit comedic genius,” said Adam F. Goldberg, the show’s executive producer. “We sit in our writing sessions and continuously think of ways to add to our show. One day, a writer kiddingly said, ‘we should get (wrestler) Goldberg on our show.’ I said, ‘that’s it, and that’s no joke! We love him!’”

“I get to inject and infuse most, if not all, of the sayings the coaches throughout my entire career used to utter or yell at me,” said Bill Goldberg. “It was kind of an homage of all the people who turned me into Goldberg throughout the years. It was really cool to yell and scream like they did to me. It was difficult to stop laughing between takes.”

Goldberg will be on ‘The Goldbergs’  in an episode entitled “The Scrunchie Rule,” on Wednesday, March 21 at 8 p.m. EST / 7 p.m. CST.
