Former WWE wrestler Jon Heidenreich was recently interviewed by The Hannibal TV. He talked about his experience of being a former teammate of Goldberg’s, and if he thinks the wrestler will continue to stay involved in the business. Here are the highlights:
His memories of playing on the same NFL team as Goldberg:
“He was a D-Lineman, and I was offense, so we used to headbutt going against each other in drills. He was a tough guy, a really good football player. He bounced around several NFL teams, he had a lot of injuries, on his shoulder, and injury problems that slowed him down. He was tough. Tough as they come, and a really good guy.”
His thoughts on Goldberg’s return to wrestling:
“I think it’s great. He’s always been super nice, down to earth guy. And I think he’s good for wrestling. His character…he’s always represented himself in wrestling well. I’ve never seen or heard anything negative from him. And I love him as a personal friend. It’s good to see him do so well.”
If he thinks Goldberg will stick around WWE:
“They say he wants to wrestle, he has a young son you know. That’s a big deal. I think he will. He’s in tremendous shape and he hasn’t had too many injury problems. So yeah, I could see him staying for a few more years.”
Heidenreich also talked about his time in the CFL, his NFL struggles and more. To check out the full interview, click here.
