Goldberg says it’s hard for WWE to build Mega Superstars in this generation and only a few have forced their way up and earned their spot.
The Undertaker recently claimed that the WWE product had gone soft. This led to mixed reactions. Some agreed with the Deadman and others disagreed claiming that this was on the WWE, not the current stars. WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg is part of the former.
During a recent chat with Corey Graves on After The Bell, Goldberg argued that it was hard for WWE to make superstars in the current generation. He added that only a handful managed to reach the top without relying on the public.

“Yes, I believe comparatively [to my era that] the business is soft. But the business is in 2021, so things have to change and things have to be different,” Goldberg said. “[We had] Mega superstars that were bigger than life, but it’s hard in this generation, seemingly, to build those people. There are a couple of people who have made it beyond relying upon the public to do that, and they forced their way up and they’ve earned their spot. Drew McIntyre is one of them.”
Like the Undertaker, it is likely that Goldberg will have his share of agreement and disagreement. However, it is hard to put the blame entirely on the talent when the WWE run a very tight ship compared to what they did a couple of decades back.
Having said that, the WWE is sorely lacking on larger than life superstars who have your attention at first glance. As talent as they are, the company is selling stories and the wrestlers have to make sure that the audience buys it and that’s hard to do without capturing the imagination of the fans.
