Goldberg Responds To Ryback Saying He’s A Better Wrestler and Athlete Than Him

Bill Goldberg addressed Ryback’s critical remarks in WWE Magazine regarding comparisons between the two wrestlers via Twitter Sunday.

In the interview, Ryback proclaimed to be a better wrestler and athlete than Goldberg ever was. Goldberg, who played in the National Football League, particularly took issue with the WWE Superstar proclaiming himself as the better athlete.

“Better athlete? Come on dude wake up…..,” Goldberg tweeted.

In a remark re-tweeted by Goldberg, former WCW colleague Scotty Riggs stated, “Take it as a complement that the kid is unsuccessfully trying to outshine you!!”

Former WCW announcer Mark Madden also noted earlier, “Ryback thinks he’s superior to @Goldberg? Ryback is a Xerox of a Xerox. Goldberg was an organic phenomenon. We’ll see how Ryback winds up.”

Goldberg wrote “Case closed!” in response to the following remark: “Ryback is a better athlete than @Goldberg? I don’t remember seeing Ryback play in the NFL. #ShowSomeRespect.”

During the WWE Magazine interview, Ryback said comparisons between the two don’t bother him, but that “people are misinformed.”

“People see a big guy with a shaved head who’s intense, and they draw those comparisons,” Ryback stated. “I will say this: Goldberg did this for the money. He was never a fan of wrestling. I do this because I have a passion for it, and that’s the biggest difference between Goldberg and me. I’m not here to make five million dollars and then walk away. I’m here for life. And, I firmly believe that I’m much better than he was in the ring. He was great, and I was a fan of his when I was younger. But, I feel I’m a better athlete and wrestler than Goldberg ever was, and people are going to see that over time.”

    Goldberg will always be better than Ryback! Goldberg has beaten Main Event guys like Sting, Hogan, Nash!!! Ryback only beats Two Jobbers in handicap matches lol Goldberg jackhammerd Big Guys like The Giant, Kevin Nash & Even Mark Henry while Ryback can’t even lift Tensai lol We all know Goldberg would destroy Ryback easily!

  • Mark

    RKO, your post is the definition of ‘mark’.
    “OMFG Ultimate Warrior is da best wrestler everz because he beat HULK HOGAN!!”

    -It’s a work, bro. Also, Ryback is right at the start of his wrestling career and already you’re genuinely comparing his opponents to Goldberg’s? Seriously?!

    Get a clue, kid.

    as i said a couple of weeks ago. Goldberg got a bad rep for reasons that dont show the full story. I remember goldberg looking pretty good in the ring. he was, and is, a big fan of mma and you could tell that he really knew how to put on a few good submissions and throw some good kicks. I’m sorry, but I finally saw Ryback (in this gimmick) for the first time recently, and I couldnt believe how bad he looks and is. If he really faces Punk at HIAC, I dont know how anybody can continue to watch the product at that point. Again though, I have to admit that Punk-Vince fight last week was awesome

    its too early to make comparasions. nuff said

  • Ariez77

    Shut the fuck up Goldberg no one cares about ur sorry ass Gillbergs beter than you, you 2 move hack! Ithink its funny how the people that like Goldberg are the same ones who say Cena sucks cause he only has a handful of moves. Goldberg is to wrestling what Batita is to MMA

    Ryback has been wrestling for almost 10 years… he’s not new or at the start. He’s been wrestling longer than Goldberg did. Stupid fucktards saying ‘He couldn’t lift Tensai’ BLAH BLAH BLAH. We all know that Tensai either sandbagged or just couldn’t get himself up. He’s already lifted Tensai before you fucking morons.

  • GN-0015

    All these comparisons are quite unfair to Ryback. He came some 10+ years later than Goldberg, being a bald muscled up guy and squashing people around which is pretty much the same as Goldberg did. And people instantly comparing him to Goldberg.

    This type of booking has been repeated so many times by the WWE. Kozlov, Brodus Clay, even the returning Wade Barrett all squashed people and got some kind of a “streak” but none of them got compared to Goldberg because they aren’t bald.

    Also, saying you played in the NFL Bill, yeah, that’s great, but there’s a list as long as football field with guys that have played 14 games….much less for Atlanta when they sucked royal ass….

  • Coolquip

    who the fuck are these Ryback marks supporting this roided up rip off?

  • Coolquip


    How’s a DT determine of a team sucks? #fatassesshouldnttalkfootball

  • Richie

    Goldberg was more hype than anything! His streak in WCW was all a work that hyped him up to be way bigger than he actually was! When it comes to WRESTLING…Goldberg couldn’t hold a candle to guys like Sting!

    Ryback on the other hand…his career is finally just taking off, we have yet to see him used to his full potential, so we can’t really compare him to anyone yet!

    And as far as Ryback not being able to lift Tensai…that was all on Tensai, he sandbagged Ryback!

    4 everyone supporting Ryback it’s cool, just know Goldberg was just better than him. Plus, 4 people crying about the “it’s not his fault he’s being compared 2 Goldberg”, he’s also acknowledging the comparison and adding fuel 2 the fire. It’s also known that Vince wants Ryback as his personal Goldberg, that’s one of the biggest reasons 4 the comparisons. And he does look somewhat like Goldberg, just about 4″ shorter and not as intimidating. Just youtube Goldberg’s spear and you’ll know y people still love the guy. Ryback is young and getting a second chance since his Skip Sheffield character was pretty lame(he was lucky 2 b injured and given a chance with his FCW character). He has huge potential but if he wants 2 not b compared then he should not talk about Goldberg, a freak of nature, who looked natural, not juiced, unlike other guys his size with that strength. GOLDBERG!!!!!!!!!!

  • Akshay

    Ryback can never be better than GOLDBERG .

  • wrestlinfan

    ummmm, i don’t remember seeing goldberg play in the nfl either, he was in it, but i don’t remember it. that does not mean anything about being an athlete, you know who else was in the nfl, the fridge william perry. case closed.

  • JG40

    @coolquip He didn’t make them any better. He was the same way in wrestling as he was in football. In football he was a member of a supporting cast. In wrestling, the same, he was simply over pushed, he couldn’t cut promo’s, was careless and injured others.

    Also, he NEVER had a true winning streak. If I remember right, he was one of the guys Roddy Piper beat in his little self worked gauntlet match a short time
    before “Goldberg” appeared.

  • CM Rock

    On a related note- Gillberg’s better than Hornswoggle. Nuff Said!!!!!!!!

  • Chris

    I think Goldberg helped Ryback make his point about Goldberg not having love and respect for wrestling by saying that he was a real athlete because he played football. Look at mongo. He sucked as a wrestler. Not saying rybacks better. I’ve never seen him wrestle but if he’s got love for what he does I respect him more

  • Chelsii.

    ^ How have you not seen him wrestle? How often do you watch it, once a decade?

  • Chris

    I don’t watch wrestling that often. I used to be a huge fan but not so much anymore. I go to this site more than I watch
