The superstar was in town for the SEMA car show, and it’s no secret the wrestler and his fans are huge car fanatics. He had a meet and greet with major brands where he chatted and took pictures with some of his biggest fans. Of course, it was hard for Goldberg to walk around without running into his admirers!
He knew that a relaxing stay and hotel room would be necessary to get through his busy week and Circa Las Vegas hit all the marks, especially with one of his favorite restaurants just downstairs.
Now, here’s where it gets fun!
WWE Star Bill Goldberg Hangs With King Of Las Vegas Derek Stevens
The WWE star dined at Barry’s Downtown Prime where the owner Chef Barry S. Dakake took him on a personal tour of the kitchen. During the tour, the giant wrestler became sidetracked in the meat locker. Barry found him in the locker and the pair caused quite the scene in a recent Instagram reel. “This is my house,” Chef Barry told the WWE legend to get him to leave the room, but he was too mesmerized by the mouthwatering smell. There was no wrangling Goldberg out of that meat locker!
After dinner, the WWE superstar met up with his buddy and Casino Executive, Richard Wilk. Richard brought Goldberg over to catch up with the CEO/Owner of Circa Las Vegas, Derek Stevens, and his daughter, Director of Player Development, Whitney Godard. The trio chatted for a while before posing for a photo in front of Mega Bar, the longest indoor bar in Nevada!
Goldberg Plants A Big One On Chef Barry S. Dakake At Dinner!
Goldberg showed off his strength by PICKING UP Circa VP David Rosborough on his shoulders. The crowd at Mega Bar went NUTS and blinding flashes went off everywhere. You gotta see this!
It’s Time To Get Body Slammed!
The WWE star wasn’t the only famous face in the house — MMA star Michael Bisping made an appearance — and as you know is a man with many titles including sports analyst, retired mixed martial artist, and UFC commentator. Michael’s 13-year career allowed him to achieve UFC Middleweight Champion and Cage Rage Light Heavyweight Champion status. While his MMA competition career ended in 2017, he didn’t let that slow him down. Since then, he’s starred in several films and shows and he released his book, Quitters Never Win: My Life in UFC, in 2019.
Michael and his wife Rebecca also visited Barry’s Downtown Prime following one of his recent UFC gigs. The couple was there to celebrate Rebecca’s birthday and they knew they were in for a memorable night. The modern restaurant was the perfect setting for their romantic celebration.
Chef Barry personally cooked them an incredible dinner and finished it off with some New York cheesecake and banana cream pie for dessert. Once their sweet tooth was fully satisfied, the pair followed Chef Barry to the best room in the restaurant: the wine cellar. Chef Barry made the night even more magical for Michael and Rebecca and let them choose a bottle to “wine” down with!
Since Chef Barry let Michael in on his night as the owner/chef at an upscale restaurant, Michael took him behind the scenes of what his workdays are like. The two friends were photographed going head-to-head in the wine cellar as if they were in the middle of the ring!
Richard Wilk Is Spotted With NASCAR Legend Richard Childress
At the end of this whirlwind week filled with some amazing athletes, Wilk was spotted with Richard Childress, former race car driver in NASCAR and owner of Richard Childress Racing. Richard Childress was there to meet up with his friend, Barry’s Downtown Prime owner Donald Rihn. The close friends enjoyed their dinner in a very big way at the downtown steakhouse. The table shared the Surf & Turf, which included a 22 oz. lobster and a 12oz rib cap with filet medallions, Maine lobster truffle aioli, and a red wine sauce. Wilk took care of them all and ensured that they had an unforgettable meal.
