Those who have followed WWE closely over the years might be aware of the fact that Goldberg has been blamed for the ending of Bret Hart’s in-ring career. The two men squared off back on December 19, 1999, at WCW Starrcade with Hart emerging as the winner of the contest. But there was a severe injury Bret suffered in that match which forced him to retire 10 months later.

Former WWE RAW General Manager, who plied his trade as a WCW executive during that period, recently commented on Goldberg being responsible for Bret’s retirement. Speaking on his 83 Weeks podcast, Bischoff stated that the concussion might have occurred due to a bump on the ring post rather than Goldberg’s kick.

“I’m looking at Bret bouncing his head off the concrete or the ring post, whatever it was, and if I had to put my money, I would put it on that concussion occurring on that bump as much or more so than the kick to the head.” 

He further went on to mention that there is no proper evidence as to what caused the concussion but the ring post incident is worth taking into consideration.

“I’m not saying that to be controversial, I’m not saying that out of disrespect to Bret. I’m just pointing out what I think is something that is at least worthy of discussion if we’re going to keep blaming Bill Goldberg for that concussion. Because I’m not sure, if this was played in front of a jury, you could convince a jury that that was true.” 

Bret Hart has been quite voacl over the years about how much he hates Goldberg for ending his career. Though Goldberg has apoligized many times for the same, it has not been accepted by the Hitman.
