Someone said something i really agreed with in a comment in a story on a wrestling site and that was that Eric Bischoff was a great ideas guy but couldn't do storylines so he needed someone who could turn the ideas into storylines but Vince Russo was a fan of breaking kayfabe and making things a lot more real which is why WCW was so horrible in 1999 and most of 2000 as they simply couldn't mesh well.
On topic though and i have no idea why WCW saw money in Goldberg/Sid because it was always going to be horrible as neither man could work in the ring, Sid Vicious played a great crazy heel but was average on the mic whilst Goldberg was horrible and there were better options for both men available. Sid Vicious was at his best when working with someone who was believable in against big men but could work in the ring like Sting or Shawn Michaels whilst Goldberg needed to have matches limited to ten minutes maximum because he couldn't work for longer as shown in WWE.
And trhat is the reason why some people don't get to book matches. Because some people just want "good wrestling matches", and that is why we sometimes get Lance Storm vs Al Snow matches, which by wrestling standards could be very good matches, but would not draw shit.
Goldberg did draw, same with Sid to a certain extent, and fans like the perception of two monsters fighting each others, despite the match might suck.
Btw that match did not suck.
