Re: Bill Goldberg: Star or just hype?
Goldberg was a star. you are going to be hard pressed to find other people with that level of charisma and pure athletic ability and a great look to boot. sure, he wasn't exactly a wizard in the ring and yeah, he wasn't that good on the mic but he had the three things casuals will generally look for: Tons of Charisma, a good gimmick, the look to make the gimmick believable and the raw power and athleticism to actually wow people. (i.e. making backflips and throwing around 500 punders).
