"Triple Crown Champ Toshiaki Kawada was very angry today when he heard that Bill Goldberg pulled out of his match against Kawada on HUSTLE-3 at Yokohama Arena on 5/8 and Kawada basically called Goldberg a coward for doing that. Kawada said that he will be working the match injured, so why couldn't Goldberg, but Kawada said that he thought that Goldberg was actually a man, which he doesn't really believe anymore. Kawada then basically buried his new opponent Mick Foley by saying that only fans of hardcore wrestling in Japan know who he is and he isn't worthy of a shot at the Triple Crown. Kawada said that Takada Monster Army Generalissimo Nobuhiko Takada should come out and apologize to the fans before the HUSTLE-3 show for Goldberg not being there and for having Foley being a substitute."

What's your thoughts on it?? Why Goldberg pulled out of this match at the last moment?

He got his hand infected little more than a week before the show. It was a serious situation, so much so that Goldberg had to miss a huge payday because of it. The match was planned to end in a double count out, as both guys were protected by their companies. Kawada used this to sell a possible future match up, as Goldberg was still due to certain dates for HUSTLE. However, he never wrestled for them again. So all in all, it was a classic example of using a shoot situation into work.
