Kevin Owens says Goldberg isn’t in the WWE to have quality matches. He also added that he wasn’t interested in Goldberg’s in ring style.
Goldberg shocked the world when he squashed Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series back in 2016. He had caught the imagination of the WWE audience with that one sided domination. However, fans began to sense a pattern when he did the same against Kevin Owens to win the Universal Championship.
It soon became evident that Goldberg’s matches weren’t going to be the Iron Man classic types. It would only last for a few explosive minutes. There are people who enjoy these kind of matches and others who don’t. Owens expressed his openness at working with Goldberg again. He however, admitted that he wasn’t a fan of what Goldberg brought to the ring.
Kevin Owens says Goldberg isn’t in the WWE to have quality matches
‘I’d love to work with him again if he was here to work. I’m not saying this is his fault, but he’s not – his career has never been about long matches or anything like that,” Owens told Metro UK. ‘To me, I don’t see much positive out of wrestling him for two minutes, or 20 seconds or 30 seconds or whatever, you know what I mean?
I’d love to work with him again if we got to do some cool stuff, and some cool promos, exchange back and forth, and then have a quality match, that’d be great. But that’s just not usually what he’s here for.”
Owens admitted that Goldberg’s style was popular and hence successful. However, it wasn’t what engaged him as a fan or a performer.
‘Look, it works,’ he acknowledged. ‘I’m not saying anything against that, it’s just not what I’m interested in. As a fan, I’ve never been interested in that stuff.
‘Even when he was in WCW, I didn’t really like it. That’s just not what I look for in my wrestling.’ .
