Re: Bill Goldberg- how will he be remembered?
As a one trick pony, but a one trick pony who rode that one trick faster, harder and longer than most people could ever hope to do and became at his peak, as big as anyone in the business ever has, off of something so simple. He wasn't a great wrestler, he wasn't a great mic worker but he had "IT". He had the presentation, the music, the look, the presence, the intensity and the moveset that left an impression on everybody who ever watched him.
And if there's one good thing about Ryback, it's that he's enhanced Goldberg's legacy. Mr. "Yep yep yep, what it do" is failing SO horrendously at replicating Goldberg's act that he's made Goldberg look better than any of his opponent's ever did.

We can't believe that someone with your skin color has the level of education that you have, so your gimmick is just gonna be that we put you on tv and brag that you went to school. Cause that's basically the gimmick that they gave him, how much more racist could his gimmick have been? Am I missing something here? What was the reason that the people were supposed to get behind him, other than the company just saying "phht, well, he's...in school".
