    First off I wanna say Riddle is an extremely talented wrestler and no doubt has bright future ahead of him. But what Riddle is doing with this Goldberg feud is just so completely obvious and misguided, that it just makes it kind of cringy and lose any credibility he's trying to gain. He's trying to take one of the biggest legends in the game in attempt to gain more credibility and rise up in the ranks, kinda like the old Ric Flair saying "You gotta beat the man, to be the man!". But the problem isn't that he's doing that, as tons of wrestlers have done that in the past to great success, it's the way he's going about it. "Attacking" Goldberg with snark comments and insults via twitter, just makes him come off more like egotistical, self-absorbed keyboard warrior instead of an actual threat or challenge to Goldberg that he is trying to be.

    I know that social media is the future and how so many wrestlers promote themselves, but I guess I'm bit old school and don't think it should be used that way. Especially if your last post was completely out-of-character and non-kayfabe, it makes it really hard to suspend disbelief and only comes across as immature, childish, and with no weight. Just like all those IMHO stupid Rousey posts where she was calling out other wrestlers by their real names, the validity of their moves, and commenting just how she is more of a "real" athlete compared to them. It likes they are literally actively trying to make the fans feel stupid for watching wrestling and trying ruin any remaining credibility the industry still has.

      I agree 1000000% with everything you say in this video. Riddle knows nothing, Goldberg is legend and the way to book him is to break his opponents in 30-60 seconds max. It's believable, it's what made him Goldberg. We want the music, the security escort, the pyro, the fire breathing (getting chills just talking about it), the spear and jackhammer... Then we want to know Who's Next!

            Goldberg is amazing, and a cool guy in general, I just wish Matt riddle would of came out and tried to beat up goldberg, he talks alot of shit and knows deep down he can never beat goldberg, even if goldberg is 70 yrs old, matt riddle will get speared by oldberg, sry bill dont come find me and kill me, your the best performer ever, nobody can ACTUALLY BEAT YOU

                I’m sorry but a handful of well-worked matches over a 20 year career does not impress me. I don’t care how much money Goldberg made WCW, clearly it wasn’t enough to keep it in business, he’s not really a (consistently) good wrestler. The whole superhero gimmick sucks. I would love to see Matt Riddle fight him.

                  Simon has the worst taste in wrestling. He loves the family entertainment shows rather that decent wrestling.

                    I totally agree, Simon! Goldberg is, and will always be my favorite wrestler! Thanks for the videos; you do an excellent job with them!

                              I agree with you Simon, Goldberg is a beast and is one of my favorite wrestlers of all time. I loved how he would come in and just destroy people.

                                Goldberg has 500 times the drawing power than Matt Riddle. Also I love watching that Brock Lesnar squash at Survivor series, I'll take a huge moment over a "6 star" indie league spotfest any day.

                                  Goldberg is one of a kind. I don’t get the hate, I’m excited for SummerSlam!

                                            Hes shooting on the last true generation of great performers, yeah Goldberg only looks strong in 5 min matches. But look at Roman Reigns he has like 3 moves also and his matches go on waayy too long but he wrestled cancer so we have to love him now I guess

People may have liked the 2 minutes of explosiveness from Goldberg but I always looked at the 2 minutes as an excuse to cover up the 3 moves he knows.

                                                                  • Big Dee

I like workers but I like the huge muscular guys with charisma and can tell a story ala hulk Hogan. Yes hulk couldn't wrestle tell me his match with the rock wasn't amazing. Wasn't a huge Goldberg fan when I was a kid dgaf I don't care to know who Matt riddle is and another thing the roster is not as deep with talent as ever. These are a bunch of lame choads who can't tell a story to save their life

Yeah NWO got me hooked but after sting and Hogan feuded the NWO wasn't a very good program afterwards. Goldberg on the other hand was the new reason for me to watch. I would literally watch all of nitro just so I didn't miss goldberg. I'd only tune in to raw on nitro's commercial breaks then switch back when nitro returned. Goldberg was a destroyer. A larger than life fantasy character brought to life yet grounded in reality. I still rewatch all of his streak matches. Vs the giant and vs Hollywood Hogan still give me goosebumps. WWE hasn't popped like that in years. It wasn't his technical prowess or mic skills that made him the next big thing, it was his intensity and brute power.

                                                                                Now I enjoy Riddle and his matches. He's a great talent with a legit fighting background but he isn't on the main roster because they have no way to write him in and make their stars still look like stars while losing to Riddle. Goldberg had his size and intensity that literally wrote him into the main event. You couldn't look at that guy and ever expect him to lose. Even if Goldberg beat you, you could always argue that you put up more of a fight than previous guys. Riddle isn't that kind of guy. If you pit him against Roman reigns, they'll put reigns over. Pit him against Rollins, Rollins will endure and win. Pit him against an aged undertaker and taker will prevail. His laid back personality and smarky tweets are going to turn him into yet another wasted opportunity.

                                                                                Not for nothing but I think AEW could and would turn him into a main event caliber fighter that could pose a threat to the roster as opposed to him staying in wwe and being another midcard casualty. Riddle needs a legit chance to shine on mainstream tv and some character work and he could really skyrocket to the top.

                                                                                • bahamianshaolin

                                                                                        Didnt even know who Matt Riddle was until this video.

                                                                                        • Jayce

                                                                                          I think Matt Riddle may have unintentionally unravelled one of the problems with modern wrestling: it seems everyone who aspires to be a wrestler today aspires to be a spot monkey, or as Nash would say, a vanilla midget. I loved Chris Benoit in his day, but I wouldn't want to watch five slightly different versions of Chris Benoit on the same card. The wrestler who thrives on intensity and charisma is sort of becoming a lost art, and instead pops are generated by constant acrobatics. If I wanted to watch people perform a visibly choreographed acrobatics routine, I'd go watch Cirque du Soleil.

                                                                                          So yeah, by this point I'd much, much rather watch a Bill Goldberg match than the next boring spot monkey. Bill was a total badass, he had incredible intensity, amazing charisma, and he looked like he could genuinely wreck anyone on the roster. Meanwhile, I've seen enough skinny dudes pull off a Canadian destroyers to last five lifetimes.

                                                                                            I thought it was bad that he beat Lesnar in 2016. If you want to make it remotely logical don't have old rusty Goldberg beat Lesnar; a guy that was at the level to fight some one in the UFC. Could Goldberg fight in the UFC at the time of the match? Probably not. Lesnar could. So the idea that Goldberg would beat him at all was pretty dumb. Just in concept.
