Re: who should have ended Goldberg's Streak?
Bret Hart. He needed a fresh rub after WCW basically kept him dormant for a year and wasted all the momentum from his switch to WCW. He needed and should have looked and been used as legit threat to anyone. Instead they made him out to be mid carder.
Eventually Bret did get a bit of a rub by beating Goldberg a lot during their eventual feud but Hart ending the streak with that steel vest under his shirt would have been an epic mark out moment - and i was a massive Goldberg fan.
Eh I'm totally against Bret ending the streak. I think Bret coming in fresh off being WWF's champion and doing what Hogan, Sting, Giant etc couldn't do would have made WCW look second rate.
I agree that Bret wasn't used properly but I don't believe he should have ended the streak. I have no doubt that with a performer like Bret you could have booked Bret to simply out wrestle the brawler and Bret had the credibility to beat him but it would have made WCW the minor leagues if they had done that and I always prefer giving rubs to in-house talent first.
