Vince McMahon’s opinion of WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg reportedly disclosed

According to AEW personality Jim Ross, Goldberg had apparently been in touch with WWE and Vince McMahon before his run in WCW started.

Da Man had an exceptionally star-studded career in the Stamford-based promotion. He once held the title of WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and the Universal Champion twice in his sporadic runs with the company.

Despite the 55 year old’s success, McMahon was not impressed enough to sign him. According to AEW veteran Jim Ross, Goldberg was not signed by Vince McMahon despite the former approaching WWE first. Ross let this slip while speaking on a recent episode of the Grillin JR podcast

“I think he liked him, you now Bill [Goldberg] had a lot of the same baggage, if you want to use that term, that sounds so negative. But guys that don’t grow up in the business… he did not watch wrestling.
