Unfortunately, the match was a major disappointment for everybody. The pace of the match was poor, while both superstars botched a handful of moves. Not only that, but Goldberg accidentally suffered a concussion after running headfirst into one of the ring posts.
It was reported after the match that Goldberg and Undertaker engaged in a backstage confrontation, with both superstars "accusing the other of being unsafe." WWE officials reportedly had to step in and put a halt to the argument.
Goldberg appeared on Booker T's The Hall Of Fame podcast (h/t WrestlingInc.com), and talked about the difficulties leading up to his match against Undertaker - and why the bout disappointed.
The 2018 Hall of Fame inductee said he went up against The Deadman because he considered it "an opportunity of a lifetime." When it came to preparing for the match, Goldberg said that he tried dropping weight, and that he "didn't concentrate on getting big at all."
Goldberg also admitted that the timing was off between he and Undertaker throughout the match. In one instance, Goldberg accidentally dropped Undertaker on top of himself when trying to execute a Tombstone Piledriver. Goldberg said that never encountered a superstar that he "couldn't pick up" in the ring.
As for those who thought the referee should have called the match? Goldberg said he was asked "15 times" how he was feeling, and that he "felt different every single time," the official asked him. The match eventually ended with a victory for Undertaker via pinfall, and the two superstars were able to move on from the frustrating match.
What This Means
In short time, we'll all forget about the Goldberg and Undertaker match. The former redeemed himself by taking down Dolph Ziggler at Sunday's SummerSlam pay-per-view in Toronto. Goldberg wouldn't say on the podcast if he was done wrestling or not, although it's been reported that Paul Heyman is content on keeping him around for a while longer, so we probably haven't seen the last of the wrestling legend.
