Goldberg finally breaks silence on alleged sabotage of ‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt

Goldberg has finally broken his silence on the alleged change in the ending of his match against “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt at WWE Super Showdown 2020.

The WWE Hall of Famer defeated The Fiend on the show in Saudi Arabia to win the Universal Championship for the second time in his career. He also became the first WWE star to pin The Fiend.

After the match, there was a massive backlash from fans, who were completely against the idea of ​​a part-timer beating what was the hottest thing in WWE at that time. Things got worse as there were allegations made against Goldberg for forcefully changing the ending of the match and not putting Wyatt over it.

In a recent interview with SHAK wrestling, Goldberg finally responded to these allegations. He stated that he was indeed going to lose the match initially, but the finish was somehow altered. He further gave three reasons why he was not the one who changed the ending of the game.

“Let’s put it this way. I’ve never said anything that wasn’t true in the wrestling world. I’m a talent and I do what the boss tells me to do. I flew to the ‘Saudi Arabia knowing I was going to lose. Then somehow it changed and the finish was different. And it sure wasn’t me. Because it’s an extremely selfish gesture. , number one, to do Number two, then really it wouldn’t be about the company, it would be about And number three, who am I as a part time guy to come in and demand anything Really, I mean I’m not,” Goldberg said.

“I’d love to talk on the phone with Bray” – Goldberg on the allegations

Goldberg further explained how grateful he is to Vince McMahon for giving him all these opportunities over the years. He also revealed an incident in WCW when he disagreed with Chris Jericho over the decision to book his character doing comedy.

In closing, the Hall of Famer mentioned that he would like to see Bray Wyatt face to face and make sure the former WWE star doesn’t believe the allegations that he changed the ending of the match.

“Vince has given me opportunities that, you know, maybe I didn’t deserve in the past. And I owe pretty much everything to this man. First and foremost, I never said no to whoever. Maybe in WCW, I didn’t I disagree with Jericho on or something like that, if I remember correctly. Because I didn’t think he was time for the character to be involved in a comedy but not in a million years in this situation Fiend in Arabia I would like to speak on the phone with Bray and tell him I would like to see him face to face and I make sure there’s not one percent of his being that believes I changed that game,” Goldberg concluded.

Either way, there’s no denying that losing the match at WWE Super Showdown 2020 was a major bump for The Fiend that he probably never recovered from. The fan-favorite supernatural character losing to a part-timer has been heavily criticized by fans.

The whole angle was made so that Goldberg could face Roman Reigns in a “first match” at WrestleMania 36 and leave him the Universal title. Unfortunately, that match never happened as Reigns pulled out of the show and the Hall of Famer instead dropped the title to Braun Strowman during the show.
