WWE icon Bret Hart has launched a savage attack on Universal Champion Goldberg by branding him the "most dangerous and unprofessional wrestler to EVER work in the business."
The 62-year-old Hitman left Vince McMahon's company in 1997 to join rival promotion WCW for a mega-money deal.
However, the Canadian’s in-ring career was cut short due an injury sustained in a match against Goldberg at Starrcade in 1999.
Hart was nailed with a full-pelt mule kick to the head that left him with a severe concussion and prematurely ended his illustrious reign inside the squared-circle.
The Best There Ever Was has since harboured an intense hatred for Goldberg, claiming last year that the 53-year-old didn't deserve to be part of WWE's Hall of Fame.
Speaking to Stone Cold Steve Austin on the Broken Skull Sessions, Hart revealed he wanted to be remembered for protecting the wrestlers he was in the ring with.
For Bill Goldberg to be in the Hall of Fame… he hurt everybody that he worked with. You might as well wrestle a real gorilla.
He said: “I always knew what I was doing. I would hurt myself before I ever hurt another wrestler. And I just wish some of the wrestlers I worked with, especially at the end [of my career] like Goldberg.
“He was one of the most unprofessional wrestlers to ever work in the business. For Bill Goldberg to be in the Hall of Fame… he hurt everybody that he worked with.
“You might as well wrestle a real gorilla. He was the most dangerous guy to work with. He hurt everybody that he worked with; I remember Curt Henning being in pain all the time from the matches they had.
“And even when I worked with Bill, I always think the last words I said to him before we went out and had that match where he injured me and ended my career, I said “Bill, whatever you do out there, don’t hurt me. We can do whatever you want, we can do anything. Just do not go nuts.”
While Hart's WCW contract was terminated a year after the infamous kick when he announced his retirement, Goldberg remained one of the company's biggest attractions.
He then enjoyed a short stint in WWE from 2003 to 2004 after Vince McMahon famously bought his competition.
Goldberg since wrestles sporadically since returning in 2016, and is currently set to defend his Universal title against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 36.
