WWE: Chris Jericho reveals why he and Goldberg hated each other

Published Add your comment

Chris Jericho isn't exactly scared to share an opinion or story from his past.

The Ayatollah of Rock n' Rolla appeared on Ric Flair's CBS podcast this week and had a great chat with the legend himself. 

During the two's chat, Flair asked Jericho about what happened that led to him leaving WCW for the WWE and Y2J went off into a crazy story about how he and Goldberg truly hated each other outside of the squared circle.

As Jericho told it, he was an up and comer who was pushed into a feud with the WCW Champion, where he would do a comedy heel bit that saw him "beat" Goldberg's streak by defeating a little person dressed up like his foe before then calling the Champ out on nights that Jericho knew he wasn't in the building - then having a 'match' with the absent Goldberg, thus winning by count out and being 2-0 on the unbeaten beast.

However, this angered Goldberg, with Jericho essentially making fun of him and his character - who was the unstoppable spearing machine.

WCW apparently tried to book matches on Nitro that would see Goldberg beat Y2J in a minute and Jericho refused it, even hiding on some occasions, saying that the payoff should be at a PPV because the fans were into it. 

In the end, Hulk Hogan agreed with Jericho's thinking and the match was booked for the next pay-per-view - which Goldberg would have won, had he bothered to turn up for it. Seriously, the Champion decided to go hunting instead.
