The title of this article may seem harsh, but it is how I feel. I don’t care for Bill Goldberg. In fact it would be absolutely impossible for me to care less about him. And I hope I show you in this very article my view on why I have the right to say what I’ve just said. Now, I don’t necessarily want you to agree with me, just to read and attempt to understand the depth of my resentment towards Bill Goldberg. Enjoy!

Honestly I couldn't care less if he went to WWE or TNA. I couldn't care less if he offered me a ticket to see him face Hogan in the Atlanta Dome. In fact I'd take it and rip it up in his face, because I couldn't care less about Bill Goldberg.

Recently there have been talks about Bill Goldberg striking up a deal with the WWE for merchandise, likeness in games etc. Up until the day I heard of these talks, I'd completely forget about Goldberg's existence. Do you really blame me though? He fought in squash matches most of his WCW career and then appeared in WWE as just another guy really. Fortunately, for me at least, the deals have apparently halted for the time being. Goldberg has this to say on his communication with the WWE; "until the WWE realizes that I'm not just another wrestler signing a deal....I don't expect any progress."

He is right though. He is not "just another wrestler signing a deal". He is thee most overrated wrestler of the 90s (and trust me he must of been very overrated because Hogan was around then). I've heard people say Goldberg was WCW's version of Stone Cold Steve Austin, but that's like saying Abyss is TNA's version of John Cena and who in their right mind would say that? Wait a minute..... My point is, Goldberg was popular because he was a footballer that crossed into wrestling and was handed everything on a plate. And now, WWE have bigger things in mind. Like the Sheamus' and Jack Swagger's of the world. WWE is finally moving on from Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, Undertaker, Triple H and are making room for new stars. For too many years have we seen Hogan try to hog WWE's limelight whenever his knees tell him he can walk.

Bill Goldberg claims he is considering a WWE return because he wants to let his son see him back in the business. Or is it because he is wants a nice pay check? Well it must be. If money isn't the issue and he so badly wants his son to see him return that he his willingly to work in a place that he said was miserable then why doesn't he do it for what they offer him. Or does he just want to be remember? Noticed even. I have no problem him returning, really I don't. Guest Host RAW for a week or two even. Get inducted into the supposed WCW themed Hall of Fame. Maybe even have a Wrestlemania match against Taker or however. But the fact he insinuates he is better than guys like Chris Jericho, Edge, Christian, Kofi Kingston etc. The guys that work 250+ days for the fans. The guys that keep this business alive and quite possibly the guys that will be jobbing to Bill Goldberg if he does return to wrestling, which I highly doubt.

So my real problem is that he is demanding more money than the guys that work harder than him. My real problem is that WWE might actually fall to his demands instead of giving that money to their other, far more important talent. That's my problem. Bill Goldberg is my problem.
