He said no? There have been all kinds of stars throughout WWE’s history, some of which have become iconic names in the sport. It means a lot for a lower level star to work with them, but at the same time, there are instances of one of the bigger names slowing things down for a smaller name. Now one of the real parody stars is claiming that the real version did just that.

In an interview with Cheap Heat Productions, former WWE star Gillberg claimed that people have told him that WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg “has a thumb” on him. As a result, Gillberg cannot have an action figure or a shirt or be included in a video game. Gillberg did make it clear that he was NOT 100% sure this was the case, but the people who had spoken to him believed it to be. Gillberg parodied Goldberg on and off in WWE for years before retiring in 2022.

He had his moments. Check out Gillberg’s time in WWE:

Opinion: I can see both sides of this. On one hand, Gillberg worked hard to get the joke over and turned it into quite the big phase of his career. At the same time, Gillberg only exists as a character because of Goldberg, who probably isn’t happy with having to hear about a parody version of himself. I don’t see how it is taking any money out of Goldberg’s pocket, but I can understand why it is a little annoying.
