Bill Goldberg spoke to ESPN.com about squashing Brock Lesnar at Sunday's Survivor Series, being an entrant in the 2017 Royal Rumble match and his future with WWE. Below are the highlights:
"I think at this time in my career, the best way to take [Lesnar] down was shock and awe, to do something that nobody would expect against a monster like that. At the end of the day, you have smart marks all over the world thinking that they know the outcome of a match. I don't believe any of them thought that was going to be it."
"To be able to be booked [to win] against a guy like Brock Lesnar is a dream come true. You're looking in a lot of ways at a mirror image of yourself. I think we bring something to the table that is completely different than any other two people in the sport of professional wrestling. And I am proud of that, and I think that we've got that market pretty much cornered. I don't know if that was the case prior to me coming in and being his opponent, but I do believe that that's a special space and I think we can pretty much call our own right now."
His future in WWE:
"I'm only as good as my next appearance and my next match. I'm concentrating on the Royal Rumble and that's it. I don't have any plans of doing anything afterwards. My focus is on the 29 other men that I'm going to have to crucify to win that damn match."
