Social media holds an important place in the lives of the WWE Universe. Now the rivalries are not just restricted to the in-ring promos but extend to the digital platform too. Back in 2020, Roman Reigns roasted the WWE legend – Goldberg on Twitter which left the fans praising The Big Dog.
Roman Reigns and Goldberg have shared the ring multiple times but things reached new heights when the two engaged in a battle of words on Twitter. One Twitter asked Roman about the stuff that he kept below his fist during his entrance. The WWE Champion noticed the same and went ahead to explain the same to his fan.
Nothing to explain Nick. It’s a little piece of pad. So I don’t break my hand on steel grate. I gota perform like 48 weeks a year man. So that would be stupid. It would be like,🤔 head butting a door before my match level of stupid. Anyway, have a good day Nick. 🤙🏽 https://t.co/OgHEoUuDIt— Roman Reigns (@WWERomanReigns) January 18, 2020
However, Reigns did not stop his comment here and went ahead to take a jab at Goldberg and wrote, “That would be stupid. It would be like, head butting a door before my match level of stupid.” His fans lost their minds with the extreme roast that their star just did. Here are some fan reactions:

Headbutting the door is the iconic Goldberg backstage ritual that Goldberg practices on his locker room door. Roman Reigns’ tweet caught Goldberg’s eye and he defended himself and wrote, “I’ll stick with my old school ways ….seems to have worked 99% of the time.” He additionally claimed that the move brought him an extremely different intensity level.
Roman Reigns vs Goldberg – An unfinished rivalry
Roman Reigns vs Goldberg had been a very anticipated feud among wrestling enthusiasts. Fans had been waiting for the match for a long time and eventually, it was in 2020 that WWE decided to quench their thirst. The two stars had planned to face each other at WrestleMania 36. But Reigns had to pull off from the event due to the COVID-19 pandemic and Braun Strowman replaced him.
WWE still tried its best to fulfill the fan’s hopes and Roman Reigns and Goldberg faced each other again at the WWE Elimination Chamber in 2022. Despite the fans expecting the feud to be high profile, Goldberg lost the match. Following Goldberg’s defeat, the fans had been very eager to see the two stars meet again but in vain.
Being such a big name in the world of professional wrestling, everyone hoped that Goldberg would receive a well-deserving farewell match. However, Goldberg had been out of sight by then. As per Frightful Select, the WWE legend’s WWE contract expired in 2022. Goldberg’s Elimination Chamber appearance was his last match inside the squared circle.
