Vince McMahon’s Reaction To Goldberg Promo On Raw


When Goldberg appeared on stage for the final segment of Raw on Monday, he was bleeding from his forehead.

Michael Cole, Corey Graves, and Byron Saxton explained it as the result of Goldberg headbutting the door during the backstage part of his entrance. It’s a staple of his “pre-game” ritual, and the announce team played it off as evidence of his intensity. But by the time he was in the ring with a microphone in his hand, it seemed the 50-year-old WWE Superstar may have done more than just bust himself open.

It took Goldberg three takes to get out a standard line about the road to WrestleMania running through the Royal Rumble. After that, he regained his composure and his segment with Paul Heyman, Brock Lesnar and, eventually, The Undertaker went off as planned.

But it was pretty weird for a minute or so, and it makes this sound like a really good decision on Goldberg’s part.

Vince McMahon hated Goldberg’s promo, feeling it was a debacle. Vince didn’t like his mic work during his time in WWE in 2003 and 2004 and that much hasn’t changed.
