Who else could have sold a streak like him, Vader?
I think Goldbeg's streak was simply an extension of his "look". He just knew how to carry himself. I mean the guys like The Warlord, Sid Vicious, and Vader had "looks" that made them every bit as imposing but none of them had the demeanor. The way they simply walked to the ring could not touch Goldberg's entrance.
I think allot of it had to do with the way WCW packaged him. In these cases the less the guy talked the more imposing he was. Same with Undertaker, once they started havong Goldberg talk the less intimidating he seemed.
I think fans do not realize how important the "show" is, and by that I mean the simple art of the ring entrance. In that respect Goldberg was one of the greatest of all time.
