Goldberg and Steve Austin were two of the biggest names in professional wrestling during the Monday Night Wars as they were both top stars in their respective companies. For years Goldberg vs. Steve Austin was thought of as a dream match for fans, but the dream match never became a reality.

During a recent appearance on the Talk Is Jericho podcast Goldberg explained that he wishes the match would’ve happened, but there were safety concerns that prevented him from facing off against Austin in the ring.

“There’s no question that I wish it would’ve happened. That was the match to have. Why it never happened, I think 90% of the reasoning behind that was [Austin’s] neck issues and my finishing moves, right? Whether it be the spear, whether it be the Jackhammer, I don’t think that those are moves that he would’ve wanted to, wanted to do, nor would his boss would’ve wanted him to do. I think it was a safety issue more so than anything.”

Goldberg last competed when he challenged Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship at Elimination Chamber back in February and it was Roman who picked up the victory. The Hall of Famer has confirmed that he is still under contract with WWE, but it’s not clear if the company has plans to bring him back at some point. Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
