Goldberg details his heated backstage issues with Triple H during  WWE Run: “I wanted to rip his face off”

Goldberg had an undefeated streak during the Ruthless Aggression Era and was one of the greatest wrestlers of that time. In 2004, Goldberg parted ways with the Stamford-based company due to a disagreement, only to return after 12 years during Monday Night RAW in 2016.

Recently, the master of the ‘Jackhammer’ was interviewed by Tim Green, where he revealed his desire to confront Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque after a heated altercation. Goldberg shared the details of his backstage issues with ‘The Game,’ surprising fans with the truth.

Goldberg explains his alleged heat with Triple H

Not so long ago, Goldberg appeared on ‘Nothing Left Unsaid’ and explained his alleged heat with Triple H. ‘Da Man’ said that he disliked Hunter Hearst Helmsley as he was Vince McMahon’s son-in-law and that this fact had everything to do with it. Goldberg further added during the WCW leading the charge in New York they had a brief interaction and Triple H commented something about him behind his back that enraged him.

The former WWE Universal Champion said, “I know some people that were friends that worked with me were talking to him (Triple H) when he was working at WWE. And, he made a comment while I was at home, and I remember it like it was yesterday, and from that second he said I was tanking it or faking it or something, and I wasn’t there for the demise of WCW. How could I? So from then on, I wanted to rip his face off.”

Goldberg continued, stating that before signing with WWE in 2016, he had a brief confrontation with ‘The Cerebral Assassin,’ Triple H. The situation was awkward, exacerbated by the fact that they were represented by the same agent. Additionally, their paths crossed multiple times during his tenure with the company.

Why did Goldberg leave WWE in 2004?

Goldberg joined WWE following his two-year stint with WCW and was arguably the only superstar comparable to Steve Austin in terms of charisma and popularity during that era. His WWE debut at WrestleMania 19 was warmly received by fans.

However, his tenure with the company was brief, as he departed after feeling that his talent was being underutilized. Goldberg later disclosed that he found the working environment in WWE unfavorable and believed that his full potential was not being realized.

Interestingly, his last match saw him facing ‘The Beast Incarnate’ Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania XX with a special referee ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin. Right after that match, the WCW star left the company and started as a commentator for the mixed martial arts promotion ‘Elite Xtreme Combat’.
