Bill Goldberg Says He is Absolutely Miserable

Sometimes you just can’t please everyone. Even with a WWE Universal title and a contract worth more per second of match time than anyone in the company, Bill Goldberg is not happy. As a matter of a fact, he’s miserable.

Goldberg is making headlines over a recent interview he did on Edge and Christian’s podcast, the “E&C Pod of Awesomeness.” Goldberg has been very outspoken since his previous WWE run about how unhappy he was during that one year. Things are different this time around but has that changed Bill’s attitude? No, he is still miserable but for different reasons.

I’ll be honest, I’m miserable. I’m absolutely miserable,” Goldberg recently told Edge and Christian of his current WWE run, per Yahoo! Sports. “Nobody get me wrong when I say I’ve been miserable throughout this, but I am. I’m miserable. I’m bloated 24 hours a day. I’m stressed 24 hours a day. I don’t sleep, but it’s a small price to pay.

So while Bill is making headlines about how miserable he is, the statement has been taken completely out of context by some critics. Essentially, Bill is working much harder to keep himself in shape and it is probably the first time in over a decade he has had to be strictly disciplined. Better booking or not, such a drastic shift at this stage in his life would make anyone miserable.

People are expecting me to be able to do exactly what I did back then,” Goldberg said. “I am nothing but a machine now. I get up in the morning. I eat. I train. I eat. It’s the toughest thing I ever embarked upon, guys. I’m 13 years removed from the business. I can’t name a power wrestler who has come back 13 freaking years afterwards. And then, within 20 pounds of what he was back then.

I really don’t quite understand what he’s saying. Quite honestly he hasn’t done anything yet other than a spear and a jackhammer. It sounds to me like the guy is putting way too much pressure on himself. Then again, I am sure he knew exactly what he was getting into when he signed the contract.

My family’s having fun, man,” Goldberg told E&C. “And, hey, at the end of the day, if I want to smile, I’ll buy a car. That’s how I’m happy. I did, I bought one on the way back from Toronto because I worked my ass off.

At the end of the day Bill said from the beginning that he was doing this for his family. While he is getting paid a boatload of money to do it, you have to admire the sacrifices he has made just to perform in front of his son. Titus O’Neil, your Father of the Year award is in serious jeopardy.

The main thing I am reading into this interview is that Goldberg is probably done for a while after WrestleMania. He is only going to make those sacrifices and train this hard for so long before he wants to go back to enjoying life. Regardless of how you feel about him, you have to admire his dedication to getting the most out of his return.
