Goldberg has accomplished so much in his professional wrestling career, and as a result the WWE has decided to induct him into the 2018 Hall Of Fame class before WrestleMania 34 later this year.

The former WCW World Heavyweight Champion returned to WWE in November of 2016 to challenge Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series. He made quick work of "The Beast" and defeated him in just over a minute.

Soon after he declared for the 2017 Royal Rumble match where he eliminated Lesnar quickly before being eliminated himself by The Undertaker.

Goldberg then won the Universal Championship from Kevin Owens at Fastlane and would go on to defend that strap against Lesnar at WrestleMania 33.

Lesnar finally topped Goldberg at "The Show Of Shows" and took home the Universal Crown in the process, thus marking the end of Goldberg's return to the WWE.

Now several months later he will be honored just before WrestleMania 34.

He recently spoke to WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T on his podcast, Heated Conversations, to get his thoughts on the Hall Of Fame nod and his last WWE run.

Goldberg explained how he felt held back a bit by WWE during his last run with the company, hating that he only got to use his two moves of the Jackhammer and Spear (quotes via WrestleZone):

"If you are given an opportunity you have to take it. I was limited with my repertoire because of… everything. Because of storyline or whatever it may be.

"I would have loved to have given more. The Goldberg and the “two move” crap, I am so sick of hearing that!"

He also revealed that several parts of his body became black weeks after his match with Lesnar at WrestleMania:

"Being older, how did I feel afterwards? I think my groin turned black. The back of my right leg turned black I think like two weeks after Mania. I think my body was in shock.

"I was ready to go that night and I was waiting for Brock to hit me with like ten more suplexes. I was amped. If there was ever a time I realized a good formula it was that night. I was so relaxed."
