— Jim Ross recently published an article for FOX Sports in which he was able to get some words from both Bill Goldberg and Vince McMahon on the latter’s return to WWE.

Goldberg: “I’d love to be the Goldberg of old, and not the Goldberg that’s old. I’m 12 years older, and gray, but in those 12 years I that I’ve been away from wrestling I’m much wiser, and I have 12 years of MMA training that I can utilize. My stand up game is immensely better than it ever was in WCW or WWE.”

Goldberg: “I’m a 49-year-old guy who was humbled as I could be in Denver when I heard the reception that the fans gave me. I left them on a sour note 12 years ago and now I have a chance to return and rectify it. It was very cool.”

Vince: “The reaction to Goldberg confirmed our confidence that Bill is still not only relevant in the WWE world, his reaction was met with passionate exuberance even after a decade’s absence. Bill’s son has never seen him perform and Bill’s wife and son were blown away with the reaction in Denver. Survivor Series is going to be on fire!”
