Re: Bill Goldberg- how will he be remembered?

He wasn't great in the ring, but the Goldberg character was great for a limited amount of time. Think about it, people still see a guy like Ziggler as a future WWE star etc, he's been wrestling now longer than Goldberg. Goldberg got arguably the biggest push in the history of the business because of his unique look, and also the easiest considering he only had to squash people. Eventually booking killed him; Nash claims the fans had turned on Goldberg so he beat Goldberg, and later on Russo thought it would be a brilliant plan to turn him heel. Let's not forget his WCW Title run after beating Hogan sucked, he was never the main event because of Hogan still hogging the spotlight. His WWE run was okay but I understand why he couldn't go through the entire roster again, they wanted to protect certain characters, Goldberg was clearly there for a short run to make money and leave. Despite all the shitty booking he did remain very popular (mainly because he got pushed hard during the wrestling peak), so he'll go down as a great wrestling personality, but I wouldn't call him a legend. Realistically he hardly did anything.
