Re: Who should have ended Goldberg's Streak?

I think Jericho ending it would have been gold but WCW seemingly refused to push smaller guys for various reasons. The man that ended the streak was never going over clean. It would have made no sense for Goldberg to lose clean and pass the torch to somebody else so early in his career. Losing clean would have made him look too weak imo. It was going to be a heel or tweener that beat him in a dirty finish and they should have picked an ultra talented and relatively young guy that could be elevated by it like Jericho.

Jericho's WCW character had a feud with Goldberg and it was highly entertaining despite Goldberg's lack of interests in it at the time. Jericho's character had his own mock security etc. and he was also a total scam artist. He could have screwed Goldberg out of his streak which would have elevated Jericho big time and helped WCW in the process since they needed more young stars. Only way it would have blown up in WCW's face is if Jericho still decides to jump ship in 1999 like Benoit did after he won the WCW title in 2000. Then they would have elevated a guy just to have him leave for WWE afterwords.

Sting would have been the best choice.

Hogan ending the streak would've definitely been a better storyline than the one they did go with.

Re: Who should have ended Goldberg's Streak?

I personally think Warrior should have been the one that ended the streak.

First off, WCW needed a great agent like Pattersson to have constructed a good match between Hogan and Warrior with Warrior comming out on top, and then proceeds on going to challenge Goldberg for the title.

Warrior defeats Goldberg barely, andin their re-match Goldbergs pins Warrior, giving GOldberg extra boost to his career.

Warriro was still a big draw at the time, Goldberg was the hottest thing in WCW, so it is a unique match that could have taken place

Problem there is that...well its Warrior. He barley could work a match in the wwf and in wcw they knew he was done. He couldnt even run the ropes without getting winded. Also, how do you know he wouldve stuck around to put Goldberg over? He couldve got his pin and left.

Re: Who should have ended Goldberg's Streak?

I always felt like it would be a fantastic technician; Bret Hart, Chris Benoit. or a guy who had a really solid arsenal and quick strike ability: Chris Jericho. or DDP. I felt like Hogan was GOING to be the guy.

WOULD YOU PLEASE. SHUT. THE HELL. UP?

What do you mena get his pin an leave? I never heard Warrior had a problem with doing jobs, looking at shoots invovling Hellwig, he saw wrestling as a business, a way do make money.

Hence why I said that a good booker/agent was needed for a match involving these guys, since they were not superior workers none of them. But if done right, it could have been a great match. As for Warrior getting winded, to me that is jsut claims of other jealous wrestlers. Srue he might have gotten winded, but hey, I seriously doubt that he got winded in every single match, I think that most big guys gets winded every now and then.

I still think that Warrior vs Goldberg if it was done right, could have been huge

Re: Who should have ended Goldberg's Streak?

It should have been a heel that hadn't yet broken through to the main events. Eddie and Jericho come to mind but WCW never had any intentions of pushing them.
