WWE Universal Champion, Goldberg, has had one of the more successful comebacks in wrestling history.After 13 years away from the ring, Goldberg has looked almost every bit as dominant as he did when he was running through the WCW. While fans old and new have treated Goldberg as the super hero he set out to be, Da Man recently admitted on the premier episode of E&C's Pod Of Awesomeness that he is absolutely miserable during his current WWE run.
"I'll be honest, I'm miserable. I'm absolutely miserable. But my family's having fun, man. And so, every single thing, every training session, every ART massage that makes me cry, every muay thai session, it's all worth it, man. It's just worth it. And, hey, at the end of the day, if I want to smile, I'll buy a car. That's how I'm happy. I did, I bought one on the way back from [Survivor Series in] Toronto because I worked my ass off."
"Nobody get me wrong when I say I've been miserable throughout this, but I am. I'm miserable. I'm bloated 24 hours a day. I'm stressed 24 hours a day. I don't sleep, but it's a small price to pay."
Goldberg went on to discuss how important it was to him to give fans the Goldberg they remembered from his hey day.
"For me to be 237 [pounds] and have great cardio and then get the phone call that six weeks later, I've got to do what I've got to do. Do you think I continued to do cardio every day?" Goldberg continued, "I had to shut cardio completely down and just eat, and eat, and lift, and eat. And so it's a sacrifice. Do I give people the visual whatever as close as possible of Goldberg or do I give them a new version in which I look like a cruiserweight and it's just different, man."
"Why do you think I wore a coat every time at first when I got back? The answer is I still had to train, man. I was still training." Goldberg added, "I believe it was much more important for me to be aesthetically what I was like in the past as opposed to a dude who could run around for 20 minutes. That ain't me."
These comments only further our expectations that Goldberg will be ending his run with the WWE this Sunday at WrestleMania. If his match with Brock Lesnar happens to be his final in the WWE, we certainly appreciate all the work he's put into giving us one hell of a final run.
