Good thing Goldberg is reining in his three-a-day workouts right now, because WWE has him on a pretty hectic public relations schedule this week as he promotes his match against Brock Lesnar this Sunday, Nov. 20, at Survivor Series.
In an interview he gave to NBC Sports on Tuesday, the 49 year old ran through the intense training plan he’s implemented as a way to try and get ready to face the Beast Incarnate in Toronto, and once again spoke of the “conundrum” of deciding how much is too much.
What he’s done so far doesn’t sound like it’s left him in a great place:
You want to use your time wisely, but there’s only so much that you can shove in at one time and it becomes counterproductive. You become hurt and you’re exhausted. I’ve felt that over the past couple weeks.
You know five days removed from going up against one of the baddest dudes on the planet, I don’t want to be feeling like that. I’m terrified.
In fact, Goldberg says he left Monday’s Raw a little banged up. He’s still sounding confident about being able to deliver on Sunday, though:
My body feels horrible. I tweaked my shoulder last night [on Raw], but that doesn’t mean in five days that I’m not going to come out kicking ass and taking names like I always do.
But maybe not about extending this run past Survivor Series. Asked if Brock really is “last”, as he claimed in his memorable Denver return promo, Goldberg said:
I’m sure acting like it. At the end of the day, it’s all that I’m concerned about. I take one day as it is.
