Goldberg Comments On WWE Parodying Him During His Iconic WCW Run, The Rock’s Affect On His Career

Bill Goldberg was not a big fan of Gillberg.

The WWE Hall of Fame legend spoke during the second season of the WWE Network documentary series “Ruthless Aggression” about the Duane Gill character who portrayed a parody character of himself, as well as the impact that The Rock had on his career in WWE.

Featured below are some of the highlights.

On his thoughts on the Gillberg gimmick in WWE during his iconic run in WCW: “I hated the Gillberg thing in the beginning. I just absolutely hated it. I wanted to rip the guy’s face off. I wanted to really kill him. But that means it worked.”

On The Rock being a large part of his success in WWE: “Coming from WCW to WWE and making that splash, it had to be with the right person. He [The Rock] was instrumental in my success immediately in the WWE.”
