Goldberg To Be Inducted Into The WWE Hall Of Fame
Hall of Fame, you're next! When Bill Goldberg sets his eyes on something he tears through it, so we can't wait for the Hall of Fame ceremony on Wrestlemania weekend this year when former WCW legend is inducted.
Every year the WWE induct a number of legends from the world of professional wrestling into the prestigious Hall of Fame in a ceremony that makes up the glitziest part of the biggest weekend of the year in the lead up to Wrestlemania.
This afternoon ESPN revealed that Goldberg is the first man on the list for 2018 and will be inducted in New Orleans on Friday 6th April, just two nights before 'Mania.'
Speaking about the news the 51 year old said, "At the end of the day, any business, any venture that you embark upon, you want some type of acknowledgement.
"You always try to make it to a top. There's no reason to do anything unless you want to be the best."
The man with one of the longest winning streaks in professional wrestling, beaten by Asuka late last year, revealed that he initially didn't feel like he deserved the honour, adding: "The mindset that I have is that I'm as self-deprecating as the next 10 people combined.
"It's nice to kind of sit back and stop the teardown of yourself, open up your arms and your heart and say, 'Hey man, maybe I do deserve something like this.' To get that type of accolade [from the WWE] is really, really cool, and I'm honored and privileged to again set an example for my son -- it makes me very happy."

Paul Levesque, WWE Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events & Creative said, "Goldberg's unique athleticism, persona and intensity captured the imagination of sports entertainment fans around the world throughout his illustrious career. We are honored to have Goldberg take his rightful place in the WWE Hall of Fame."
He initially made a name for himself in WCW powering through everyone in his infamous unbeaten streak, which ended on 173, and won WCW World title on one occasion.
After WWE bought its competition he eventually moved to Vince McMahon's company where he also captured the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. He left the business in 2004 and returned 12 years later.
He feuded with Brock Lesnar before eventually beating Kevin Owens for the WWE Universal championship that he lost at Wrestlemania 33 to Lesnar in one of the matches of the year.
