Re: Bill Goldberg- how will he be remembered?
I fucking LOVED Goldberg, it was hard not to. Here you had a guy standing at 6 ft 2, weighed 250+ pounds, fucking built like a machine, was powerful, freakishly strong and very agile. He was doing high kicks, back flips, throwing people around like rag dolls and the fans, including myself ate it up!
Thing I liked about Goldberg was he wasn't built like some superstars are nowadays where they no sell everything, he was taking his fair share, he was being pinned, he was being suplexed, taken out etc. and I think that is why he got the reactions he did, coming back from it, building up to that moment where he would hit you with the spear, the taunt before he laid that Jackhammer on you, just awesome.
The guy oozed charisma, drew and didn't even fucking speak, it's unheard of. The crowd were starting to get on him though round about the time Nash beat him, I mean you should see the reaction from the crowd when he lost in that shitty way he did, they were cheering that Nash had won the belt.
For me? The guy is a legend. He made an impact. He wasn't the best in the ring, no, but neither was Hogan, neither was The Rock. Goldberg had a silent charisma, awesome power moves, a deadly finishing combo, beat most of the biggest names in the sport and was all round fucking entertaining.
