Former WCW and WWE star Bill Goldberg was recently a guest on The Turnbuckle Weekly with Chuck Carroll on CBS Atlanta. 

Goldberg talked about his new podcast, Who’s Next With Goldberg, and his involvement with The Drive To Feed (www.drivetofeed.com). He said the charity hits close to home for him as two out of every five students get their only substantial meal of the day when they’re at the school his child attends.

But at the heart of the interview was the insight he provided as to why Sting appears to be just dipping his toes in WWE waters and not fully committing to wrestling a match.  Goldberg was in a similar situation last October when WWE released his DVD:

“It’s a guy like Sting. It’s a guy like me that makes decisions not based upon wrestling logic, but based upon individual needs and desires,” he said. “There’s a lot that plays into these things. It’s taken him this long to be a member of the WWE. He’s surely not going to make a hasty decision about anything.”

You can read a few excerpts from the interview, including more of Goldberg’s thoughts on Sting, how he chooses to make appearances, the Tony Stewart racing situation and more below:

Goldberg On Sting wrestling in WWE?

You never know what WWE is doing. You never know what any of these guys are doing. You don’t know if they’re publicizing it to ramp up for an in-ring return or an appearance of if they’re just hinting at it so that they can sell more video games. You just never know.

How Goldberg chooses to make a public appearance at wrestling events:

I obviously look at the roster before I choose to attend one of these, which plays a huge role in whether I do it or not. For the most part it’s a good time.

Tony Stewart situation:

It’s a tragedy on both sides. Nobody knows what happened. Nobody knows what’s in Tony’s mind. Everybody knows his past as far as his aggressive driving and his willingness to trade paint, which is what NASCAR is all about. … I think the only fault of Tony in this situation is being part of the group of guys the last 20 years that have shown their emotion on television and have been allowed to get out of their cars and do whatever it is they have done. They set bad examples for kids like (Kevin) Ward. … I just don’t think it’s within the realm of possibility that Tony Stewart could run somebody down. There’s zero validity to that.
