Re: Bill Goldberg: Star or just hype?
The problem with Goldberg was he never tried developing a character or depth
Its the same reason monsters never last long. and goldberg was just a face monster
Undertaker did evolve, thats why he endured for 20 years. He continuously developed and refined himself in new ways to adapt and survive in wrestling
Bad booking fucked Goldberg. He should have won the title at Starrcade. losing the title was controversial but he had to lose eventually. The question is, what to do after he lost. Instead he just got buried by the nwo, and instead of getting revenge, he lost all direction. He was the same guy, but lost the mystique of the streak and just never picked up direction again
Its the same reason his WWE run tanked. It was like "ok, this guy just steamrolled through all of Evolution and beat Triple H, now what?" And thats the problem, Goldberg as a character and person gives you almost zero direction to go in long term
