GOLDBERG SAYS WWE WAS STUPID TO TAKE THE BELT OFF HIM; COMMENTS ON INJURY, MANIA XX, AUSTIN, NWA:TNA & MUCH MORE
by Mike Johnson @ 12:00:00 AM on 4/9/2004

BK Steven sent along a link to the transcript from Bill Goldberg's chat on AOL earlier this week.

Highlights of the chat included:

Unhappiness with his character in WWE: A lot of promises were not fulfilled and there were twists and turns for everybody that were counterproductive.

Things he didn't expect during his WWE run: I didn't envision it to be counter productive and having the belt throughout my time there.

Being upset at Armageddon and Dropping the Belt: Nothing necessarily at Armageddon. It just came to a head and they were stupid to take the belt off of me.

Working for NWA:TNA: I don't really don't know the product so I can't really answer that.  I would like to kill a couple of guys over there so yes, that would be an option.

Returning to WWE to face Steve Austin: I would love nothing more then to wrestle Austin at Wrestlemania XXI. As I said before, I would consider going back if the circumstances were a lot different. I only left for those circumstances. My knee is also not good, and I want to take some time to get it operated on and get it taken care of. If I do another movie, that is what a stunt man is for.

Future Plans: No question that I will do more acting. I am considering it. I am re-signing a Japanese contract to wrestle overseas.

Brock Lesnar's Decision to leave WWE: I believe if anybody has a dream, before they die they should have the option to pursue it. He is entitled to that decision. More power to him to make himself happy.

Scott Hall: He is a troubled soul. I wish him all the best!

Issues with Chris Jericho: We don't see eye to forehead.

Wrestlemania XX: [The match with Brock Lesnar] could have been a wonderful match in history but the fans in the arena wouldn't let that happen. They just wanted to heckle us both for leaving. We didn't want to be there at that time, but give me a break. I wouldn't have been there if it wasn't for the fans.

His WWE Debut: Rushed, very rushed. I didn't think the match had the proper preparation, nor the did the angle have the proper preparation. Although it was an honor to be there and an honor to wrestle the Rock, it could have gone better.

Creative Control in WWE: I think people know me much better than to think I had control over any of that. I wouldn't change my entrance, my music, any of that. If it isn't broken, don't fix it. Believe me, if I had creative control things would have been A LOT Different. If they paid me to be creative what you saw is what I wouldn't have created. That's a fact, jack!

Goldberg also touched on a number of different topics including charity work, Steve Austin, his movie, The Rock, Eric Bischoff and more.

BRET HART PAYS HOMAGE TO CHRIS BENOIT AND WWE
by Adam Lebow @ 12:21:00 PM on 4/10/2004
In Bret Hart's weekly column in the Calgary Sun, he talks about the first time he met Chris Benoit, which is the first time Chris got to meet his hero, The Dynamite Kid. Hart talks briefly about a conversation he had with Benoit a few days ago when Chris finally returned a message from Bret left the night after Mania to congratulate him. Bret really came off as a big Benoit fan and then went on to plug the WWE Event coming to Calgary. "I hope when the WWE returns to Calgary April 19 fans will all turn out to honour Benoit, the new world champion and a true Canadian hero. "
