Ryback Says He Wants To End The Undertaker’s Undefeated Streak and Take On Goldberg

Two things Ryback has in mind is ending The Undertaker’s famed undefeated streak at WrestleMania and taking on former World Heavyweight Champion Goldberg.

Speaking to TribLIVE (to promote Monday’s Raw at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania), the WWE Superstar considers it a “good thing” that the topic of a showdown with Goldberg is constantly discussed by wrestling fans.

“For me, I grew up watching the guy. He came in an era and dominated. I still remember to this day being in high school and him taking on Hogan. It was during my summer baseball tournament in Mesa, Ariz. All the guys went out and I stayed back. ‘Ah, I gotta stay back because I got stuff to do.’ I stayed in my hotel room to watch Nitro and watched Goldberg take on Hogan when he defeated him for the world heavyweight championship in Atlanta. The reaction that man got out of all those people, it takes a special person to do that,” said Ryback.

“I’d love to take on Bill Goldberg. I think it’s a match that’s going to make me a lot of money. It’s going to make him a lot of money. It’s a match the WWE Universe want to see. I said recently that if people keep chanting his name at me, they’re going to make me a ton of money. WWE’s going to want to bring in Bill Goldberg to face Ryback.”

Despite his interest in facing Goldberg, Ryback does not consider it his “dream match.” Rather, it is facing The Undertaker at WrestleMania and ending the streak.

“No, one of my main goals is ending The Undertaker’s WrestleMania streak. It’s something everyone has their opinion on. Some people say it’s something that should never end. I say why not? I say I’m good enough to end it, and I’m very confident in myself. I know there are a lot of people that will say otherwise, but I could care less what they say. I’m the one who wakes up every day and knows how hard I’ve worked for this. It’s something, if I don’t believe I can do it, nobody else is going to believe it,” said the former Skip Sheffield.

“I talked to him (The Undertaker) last year at WrestleMania. He made a comment to me. We were down by the ring somewhere and he said ‘I hear you’re doing some interviews and saying you want The Undertaker.’ I said ‘You’re damn right I do.’ That’s all it was. Whether it happens this year or the year after, I don’t know.

“Whatever the WWE asks of me, I will do because they are my employer. I give them everything I have because I have a love and passion for this and there is no ego involved. The Undertaker is definitely another one for WrestleMania. There is no bigger for me. The streak has become its own attraction. If that’s a possibility, I’m there.”

Ryback also reveals what he would be doing if he wasn’t wrestling, his reaction to discovering he would be working alongside Paul Heyman, and what he plans to do to become WWE’s premiere Superstar. The full interview is available here.

    Dumass will never end undertaker streak the wwe fans will riot if ryback was to win

  • Erin Black

    I don’t see WWE writing a script where Undertaker loses to such a douchetard character as”The” Ryback …. Just my .02 worth

  • Fletchunter

    Ryback is not that good of a wrestler or entertainer..he was ok before he went heel, but now he has lost a lot of fans and just plain suxs now!

  • Pat

    Sorry but Ryback wont beat the deadman at a WM match, I doubt they would even give Ryback a match with him. Goldberg probably has no interest fighting Ryback and I could assure you Goldberg wont job to Ryback if they did fight. One thing that could happen is Brock might get pissed off at Heyman and attack Ryback and turn face and that could be a good match for WM 30. It is a shame that WWE had to bury Ryback so bad otherwise he might be a much bigger threat now.

    nice joke Sheffield

    I don’t think ryback deserves a shot at the undertaker for the streak!! He’s never won a title in wwe…. I think it should be Brock lesner or the rock who challenges him
