I often tussled with that angle too in my head and I came to the conclusion that Goldberg had to be beaten CLEAN. It was just time for the streak to end and it was a waste that some future big player missed the chance to capitalize off that.
I think any heel tactic would have cheapened the streak and Goldberg himself (as Nash's taser thing did), but losing clean would have made the guy who beat him and given the Goldberg character a chance to show some resiliency.
Ultimately though Goldberg was one dimensional and after losing the streak he didn't have anything so I don't know.
Its hard to book a dude amassing over 100 victories straight to lose clean or to lose by cheating.
