Goldberg was 31 when he was where Ryback is right now. Ryback is also 31. Where's the difference?

Ryback just looks like someone trying to act tough.

That pretty much sums it up for me!

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

look i'll make it simple

i liked goldberg because he just looked cool

tribal tats, giant body, insane strength and a pretty damn cool moveset. and this wasnt a wcw thing, i only saw goldberg a few times on tv and mostly knew him through the videogame

now the problem with ryback is, im not a mark anymore, so i cant judge him on the same standards. but i will say this, ryback just looks goofy looking. the leotard looks awful and face looks retarded

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

Not much I can say here that hasn't already been said. Goldberg had a mystique and just a crazy intensity for someone that says nothing. You see Ryback pandering to the crowd every match.... Goldberg simply had to come down to the ring slowly for the fans to go wild.

The gimmick was innovative and fresh, part of it was that it had people guessing what it would take to actually beat Goldberg... whereas a low blow did Ryback in. Not to mention Goldberg gorilla pressing Scott Steiner and Jack Hammering the Big Show, whereas Ryback botched his move with Tensai - if Goldberg screwed up the jack hammer on the Big Show, it would've definitely hurt his momentum. Goldberg came off as some sort of unreal super hero.

Goldberg may have not had much ring skills early on, but they masked it well, with Ryback, you see some very noticable botches tho. Goldberg had the agility too, the spear was an awesome move back then and he did it with such for it looked like he was going to tear thru some of those guys. The meathook clothesline just seems a lot more bland in comparison, the shell shock is a cool name, but it really just looks like a dramatic samoan drop. A guy that massive should be pulling off cooler moves.

I don't mind Ryback. I remember one night he did a promo and had a ton of food puns in it and it might be the worst promo of all time. I'm glad WWE immediately dropped that because he doesn't do that anymore. It was cringe worthy.

Actually Goldberg should say "thank you" to Ryback. Because of Ryback the fans love, miss and appreciate Goldberg even more. Even if somebody has forget about Goldberg he will be reminded by Ryback and in the end that will be the real legacy of Ryback.

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

Goldberg came out of nowhere and became over without being shoved down our throats. Rybacks first match had superstars in the backstage The spear is way better than the meat hook clothesline. Goldberg usually only used a few moves in matches but his power moves have more impact than most finishers. Look at that Gorilla press spinebuster he did on randy orton in the elimination chamber.

I like Ryback but at least Goldberg won a mid card title and wrestled for over a year and a half to get a title shot. Goldberg also played college and pro football

Plus Ryback failed to lift Tensai and heyman for his finisher

I kind of wish he had kept the awful food pun thing, it was at least worth a laugh

Goldberg was believable because he proved how strong he was. Ryback can't do his finisher right on Tensai so there is no way he can do it to Big Show. Goldberg also didn't need a gimmick besides his undefeated streak or who's next? He lost one of those and still stayed strong The food stuff with Ryback is awful from feed me more to the big hungry. His theme song is even called meat on the table. Ryback is just a big jacked up joke.
