"I thought Rihanna was frickin' horrible," Goldberg declared on the show, to which D'Andria said he wasn't a fan but wasn't bothered or particularly impressed.

"I was disgusted by it. That's all. Let's just say that. I thought it was horrible," continued Goldberg.

The Motorator said he felt Rihanna's performance lacked flair and was "kind of boring," something that Goldberg agreed with, calling it "the understatement of the year."

D'Andria continued by noting that he is hardly a country fan, but thought Chris Stapleton's heartfelt rendition of the National Anthem was "on point."

Goldberg quipped, "Well, he didn't grab his crotch every 15 seconds."

The wrestler was among the high-profile critics who spoke out about Rihanna's performance, including former President Donald Trump who described it as an "epic fail."

Trump took to his Truth Social platform not long after the singer finished her 13-minute set on a floating stage at the State Farm Stadium in Arizona.

"Rihanna gave, without question, the single worst Halftime Show in Super Bowl history," Trump tweeted, also slamming her stylist. "This after insulting far more than half of our nation, which is already in serious DECLINE, with her foul and insulting language."
