I was considering that. If Ryback existed back then, would people be chanting "Ryyyyback" at Goldberg now? It's a valid question, and one hard to be sure of since we cannot swap them from one time to another. But I certainly can easily see Goldberg not being over with the IWC at all
in 2013, acting the same exact way he did in the late 90's in 2013.
I'm not sure that Goldberg's intensity is that much better than Ryback's. His was good, but Ryback's is good too. The WWE has done a better job of making him look "beatable" than WCW did Goldberg is a difference between them.
