Seriously, what about Ryback is so logically different that he's terrible and Bill Goldberg is the fucking man? Many of you are the same people who thought Goldberg was the shit 10+ years ago, and now a guy with some similarities to him has appeared, and people are burying him and claiming he sucks. It's as if he "sucks" because a few people up here said it, and their opinions came to be your opinions, rather than you forming your own opinion.

I see Ryback in the ring, and I see a guy who is filling a very specific role - a big hulking tank like wrestler who is clearly a hevyweight, and a guy who fills the "Shit just got real" gap that WWE had since The Undertaker began working part time a few years ago. His in ring skills are not terrible. He's had a few botches, sure. Do some of you forget Bill Goldberg has more than a few botches as well? Ask Bret Hart.

Now, you can certainly make the argument that Goldberg may be a more talented in ring performer, or maybe you cannot, but I just don't see one or the other as vastly better. Goldberg was booked to the moon. He destroyed everyone, even moreso than Ryback has. He sold like shit often. His matches were short. His mic skills were decent, nothing spectacular.

How is Ryback so terrible and Goldberg so great? Do people have a view of Goldberg from their childhood that didn't really exist? What things made Goldberg that much more "epic" than Ryback? Multiple sentence answers would be preferred.
Your question is irrelevant. Goldberg doesn't have to still be awesome for Ryback to suck. Point is, he was once awesome and Ryback never was nor will be. And Ric "Buddy Rogers Jr." Flair can go to hell too.

But seriously now, Goldberg had this aura and intensity like already mentioned by Headliner.
The most important difference between these two is that Goldberg was so hot, they had no choice than to push him and they couldn't wait to give him the world title on a PPV and booked it on Nitro with only a 3 days announcement. Ryback on the other side was just forced into the main event.
Didn't even know Brittney did a song. I wish I could go back to not knowing Brittney did that song.

Check out the pilot for my webshow WISHFUL THINKING. It is a show about a college student who fucks up his day and a Genie grants him the opportunity to do it all over again and he finds new and creative ways to fuck it up even more.


Watch Episode 2 of WISHFUL THINKING
The Test: Rob gets caught cheating on a test and has a chance to go back and do it again


Watch Episode 3 of WISHFUL THINKING.
The Date: Rob tries not to fuck up a hot date and does it anyways.


Watch Episode 4 of WISHFUL THINKING.
The Poker Game: Rob tries to win some money at Poker and is terrible at it.

Re: Explain how Goldberg is still awesome and Ryback sucks?

Goldberg = more athletic, stronger, intimidating, presence, better entrance, innovative at the time

fuck some of you for bashing Flair. He might took some of Rogers' cocky heel gimmick and name the "nature boy" but Ric Flair did achieve more. Flair was innovative and he lived the gimmick. Still does. WOOOOOOOOOO!

Re: Explain how Goldberg is still awesome and Ryback sucks?

Goldberg was in the attitude era, Ryback is in the pg era aka childish/kids show as people call it. Liking Goldberg more also gets others to think your an old fan of wrestling and know what you talk about.

Comparing wrestlers that were active in the attitude era with pg era wrestlers will always get the same answers. Its just how it works.

I believe Ryback actually fueled the fire himself when being asked about Goldberg comparisons. He basically said he was better than Goldberg in every way. Dick move and now there is backlash from Goldberg fans and people who never cared about Goldberg until then.

Re: Explain how Goldberg is still awesome and Ryback sucks?

I don't love Ryback. Initially I thought he was ugly, he has that ugly outfit on, the R logo is lame, his entrance is awkward. But the thing is that he was over. He took off, broke through. They should've put the belt on him. He has a good catchphrase, a great finishing move, and he is over.

He was the hottest thing they've had since Punk@MITB 2011. So I don't love Ryback but he was the golden goose that was there for the taking before HIAC.

With all that said Ryback is nothing compared to what Goldberg was. Goldberg looked like a superstar, like a million dollars. IMO he had the greatest entrance of any wrestler of all time. If you didn't get pumped up watching him getting escorted by 10 cops to the stage to that music in 98 you don't have much in common with me.
