Only days away from WrestleMania 33, Goldberg has spoken about his WWE return.

Goldberg has been in matches totaling less than two minutes since making his WWE comeback, but it would appear that he’s not to excited by the whole thing.

This Sunday night at WrestleMania 33, Goldberg will defend his WWE Universal Championship against Brock Lesnar. The match is being sold as the main event of the night, and there’s more than a reasonable chance that it will be the final match on the biggest show of WWE’s year.

Goldberg will have been paid a whole lot of money to be a part-time member of the WWE roster once again, but according to the man himself, the whole experience has left him feeling “absolutely miserable”.

Goldberg was speaking on the debut episode of Edge and Christian’s “E & C Pod of Awesomeness“: (h/t Uproxx for the transcription)

"I’ll be honest, I’m miserable. I’m absolutely miserable. But my family’s having fun, man. And so, every single thing, every training session, every ART massage that makes me cry, every muay thai session, it’s all worth it, man. It’s just worth it. And, hey, at the end of the day, if I want to smile, I’ll buy a car. That’s how I’m happy. I did, I bought one on the way back from [Survivor Series in] Toronto because I worked my ass off."

Goldberg has always stated that he made his WWE comeback last year because his wife and son had never seen him perform in a professional wrestling ring. It would appear that he may be ever so slightly regretting doing that now, but he seems to have a good way of getting over the misery.

Next: Best match from every WrestleMania in history

That tells you the former WCW Champion is finding his own way to keep himself happy, despite the fact he doesn’t seem enamored with WWE and its schedule. Goldberg is a notable car nut, so it seems to make perfect sense that he’d buy himself a new set of wheels after a tough night in the ring (even if that tough night only lasted around 90 seconds).

Only days away from WrestleMania, and potentially the biggest match of Goldberg’s career, it’s interesting to see he may be regretting making his return to the ring. He has already had the chance to show his wife and son what he can do, so if the rumors are to be believed and his contract runs out after WrestleMania, then he can walk away and be a little happier once again.
