Former World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) world heavyweight champion Bill Goldberg is also an automobile enthusiast. He is set to make his first appearance at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in West Sussexx, England beside 1995 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Champion Mike Skinner.
Team owner Andrew Franzone will also join Goldberg and Skinner at the iconic festival. Each of the three will be involved in two daily runs up the hill climb which stretches 1.16-mile. The team will feature three trucks at the event.
“I can’t wait for this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed. I am looking forward to having our good friend Bill Goldberg there as the celebrity guest driver. I’m looking forward to spending a great week together.” Skinner said, as reported by paddocktalk.com.
Bill, who is also an actor and a former professional football player aside from being a wrestler will drive the team’s “Celebrity” truck. The friendship of Goldberg and Skinner dates back over 10 years when the 58-year-old racer drove a racecar promoting a television show which was hosted by Goldberg.
Goldberg, who is also a former World Championship Wrestling (WCW) world heavyweight champion, has a special interest in collecting vintage cars. The 49-year-old is undergoing some training with Skinner as well as Racecar solutions before making his debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Meanwhile, Goldberg has been heavily tipped to make his return at the upcoming WrestleMania 32 at the AT&T stadium in Arlington, Texas. The man from Tulsa, Oklahoma is being predicted to interfere in the “Hell in a Cell” match between Shane McMahon and The Undertaker helping the former to score a victory, thus gaining control over Monday Night RAW, as reported by INQUISITR.
Bill was booed heavily the last time he was wrestling in a WWE ring. At WrestleMania XX, the 285 lb wrestler had about with Brock Lesnar with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin as the special guest referee. However, both Goldberg and Lesnar were leaving the company after the match, thus getting booed off by the crowd.
