During the session, Bret Hart revealed a side of Goldberg that most WWE fans are unaware of. According to Hart, the former tag team partner was a “Gorilla” with the other pro wrestlers. Even if he had some skills that were admirable, he did not have the capacity to keep himself under control.

“[Goldberg] was a gorilla. [Goldberg] was a guy that nobody seemed to have taught how wrestling really works. He seemed to think he could just pick a guy up and just slam him through the mat as hard as you could and that was good wrestling.”

As per Hart, Goldberg didn’t understand the differnce between professional wrestling and a real-life fight. He often forgot that he wasn’t actually supposed to hurt people.

“I always liked Bill as a person. His wrestling, his workrate was 0/10. Like, everything he did hurt – everything! He could tie up with you and hurt you. He’d tie up with himself and hurt himself!”

Others had similar opinions about Goldberg

Interestingly, it was not only Hart who thought this way about Goldberg. There were others whom he severely injured without thinking twice.

WWE can be a scripted sport, but sometimes Superstars end up with serious scars. However, the injuries that Goldberg inflicted on others weren’t mild.

“Bill was one of those types of guys that I don’t think understood ever that it’s supposed to look like it hurt, but it’s not supposed really hurt. And he had so many people praising him because he’d run you over like a car. Like, he’d football tackle you with no pads on. He’s all jacked up and roided up, and he’s about 280 lbs.

“You might as well have a real car just drive over top of you. He’d line up and just run you down, knock you down, and hurt guys. I asked, ‘how does he do that without hurting everybody?’ And everybody he worked with would come to the back holding their ribs. Guys would have tears in their eyes from how much pain they were in, and he was a really reckless and dangerous guy to wrestle.”
