Been there, done that, and got the T-shirt, son, and you're just doing reruns.

Default Re: Bill Goldberg- how will he be remembered?

I swear, when I see threads like this and people vote WCW's all time greatest, it really makes me question whether these people even watched wrestling back then or before. Because if you did, you clearly wouldn't call Goldberg WCW's GOAT.

In terms of character, I voted very big star. WCW gave him 1 of the best pushes a guy could ask for. But, he was horrendous wrestler and I question how someone can be a GOAT or legend when they have had no more than a handful of above average matches in their career. And it isn't about him ending Bret's career, it's about the fact that he only looked special in squash matches.

For the record, Brock's push was done a lot better, not to mention Brock was a helluva lot better as an athlete and wrestler. And WCW GOAT? Hello, have you people not heard of Sting and Ric Flair, hell, even Hogan.

I think he was Warrior-esque

Both men were huge stars for a few years but didn't really have the longevity of a lot of other top stars.

He will always be one of my favorites though. He was just so believable, explosive, intense etc. I don't care that he wasn't a huge wrestling fan all his life or that he was more into the money etc. Bottom line is he was very good at what he did and that's all that matters.
