“It eats at me” – Former Universal Champion wants to avenge his loss against Roman Reigns
WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg recently discussed his match against Roman Reigns and highlighted that he is looking to exact retribution for his loss against the latter.
The former Universal Champion went one-on-one with The Tribal Chief at Elimination Chamber in February this year. The high-profile bout was initially meant to take place at WrestleMania 36 before the pandemic led to Reigns dropping out of the contest.
During a recent interview with Bleacher Report, Goldberg stated that he would be lying if he didn’t want to deliver another beating to the world champion.
“It doesn’t eat at me by any stretch of the imagination, but it eats at me, 100 percent,” he said jokingly. “Roman and I were on a collision course for a long period of time. It never happened when it would have been the best, but to say anyone that beats me doesn’t deserve to have their a*s kicked afterward, I’d be a liar if I said anything other than that.” (H/T Bleacher Report)

Goldberg has not made an appearance in WWE since his loss against Reigns this past February. However, the 55-year-old star is seemingly hoping for a return to the squared circle.
