WWE legend Goldberg wasn’t impressed by Rihanna’s Super Bowl halftime performance.

The popular pop singer rocked out in Glendale during halftime of the Chiefs/Eagles Super Bowl, and reactions were very split. I’ve been very vocal about the fact I didn’t like it. Others did. That’s okay. Well, Goldberg took things to a new level.

He absolutely unloaded on her show and claimed to be “disgusted by it.”

“I thought Rihanna was frickin horrible … I mean, I was disgusted by it. That’s all. Let’s just say that. I thought it was horrible … I thought it was disgusting. I thought it was horrible,” the wrestling legend said on the “CarCast” podcast, according to TMZ.

His main issue? Goldberg seemed to indicate Rihanna grabbing her crotch was just a bridge too far.

Goldberg has harsh criticism for Rihanna.

In terms of blunt comments, it really doesn’t get more direct than these comments from Goldberg. He was NOT happy with what he saw.

You can hear it in his voice that he didn’t appreciate the halftime show at all. That’s a dude who DID NOT like what he saw on his TV.

Now, was Rihanna’s show actually that bad? That’s up for everyone to decide for themselves, but I’m not sure how anyone could have really enjoyed it.

What was the singing to simply gyrating with the oompa loompas? It definitely seemed like there was a lot more of the latter than the former.

Chris Stapleton absolutely rocked the national anthem. He was already in the stadium. Why not have him stick around and just do the halftime show? At least then fans might have received a proper show.

Are the critics just old guys yelling at clouds? Maybe, but we’re definitely not alone. A large chunk of the fans just didn’t seem to love it.

  1. You will never see another halftime show that doesn’t include a black person. The NFL panders big time to the 13%. The douchebag sportswriter from USA Today bragged that it was the blackest Super Bowl ever and was ecstatic about it. The new America. Get used to it. White people have totally capitulated to the black racists.
