It is well known that Bill Goldberg strongly disliked Gillberg when Duane Gill debuted the character in 1998. Over 20 years later, Gill believes the WWE Hall of Famer is preventing him from earning extra money.

Earlier this month, the former Light Heavyweight Champion said on Cafe de Rene that the WCW icon does not want to face him. He also joked that he will “bust up” the man he impersonates if they ever cross paths.

In a new interview on the Cheap Heat Productions Podcast, Gill disclosed the alleged reason why fans cannot purchase Gillberg merchandise:

“I loved the Gillberg gimmick. Goldberg has, I can’t say 100 percent, but from the people I know, they say that Goldberg has a thumb on me. I can’t have a doll, I can’t have a shirt, I can’t be on a video game. I can’t do nothing.” [31:02 – 31:20]

Gill initially debuted the Gillberg gimmick on the independent scene. When he returned to WWE, he jokingly mocked the former WCW star’s mannerisms in catering one day. The company’s higher-ups found out about his impersonation and decided to present the comedy character on television.
