Default Goldberg = Most overrated superstar of all time.

From 1997-2001, Goldberg pretty much destroyed all of his opposition in the WCW. He was signed to the WCW in 1997, and made his debut on WCW TV Programming in 1998. Immediately in 1998 Goldberg was pushed to main event status and accumulated 173 consecutive victories along with multiple title reigns. His title reigns weren't too lengthy, but 173 victories in a row? I understand that Goldberg was one of the most popular wrestlers in wcw, but IMO. Sting and Hogan were more popular , So 173 wins in a row is utterly ridiculous. Vince Russo destroyed WCW with many stupid storylines, because Goldberg was good as a face but he didn't deserve half of those victories. He was signed in 1997, and within two years he receives probably the the biggest push in the history of wrestling.


How many great matches has he had? Not too many. Over half of his matches didn't even last 5 fucking minutes. Now don't get me wrong, Goldberg had great intensity, but what about his mic skills? Nothing special at all. Id say mediocore at best.

I seriously can't think of anyone else more overrated than Bill Goldberg

There are many more overrated wrestlers than Goldberg.

Goldbergs problem was he didn't have a passion for wrestling.

Overrated? I don't know how many people actually rate him as a wrestler. Despite being a huge star, he was mainly reliant on dominant booking to remain interesting.

Default Re: Goldberg = Most overrated wrestler of all time.

your honestly the first person ive ever met that thought goldberg was overrated you want to talk about not deserving things? lol theres tons of wrestlers that got things handed to them that may have seemed like they didnt deserve or earned it point is some people are gonna get pushed a lot more than others hell undertaker was really pushed when he came to wrestling but everyone adores him and ill give goldberg credit his in ring performances were well.For one thing i can say he actually made wrestling seem real and not some staged play and really the quick wins fit with his "hyped up fast paced" persona so while i respect you opinion id have to disagree

He drew money and that's all that matters.

Nobody has ever put him in the company of the brets & benoits so quit complaining.

Yes, he is one of the most overrated wrestlers ever. People have rose colored glasses when it comes to analyzing his career.

Goldberg wasn't overrated, in fact the guy was extremely over until Russo decided to turn him heel, which pretty much killed his steam. The guy was huge, it's not every day you see guys pull knee bar submissions, Jack hammer the Giant, gorilla press slam Scott Steiner, and do stuff like spear people through barricades.

Default Re: Goldberg = Most overrated wrestler of all time.

Goldberg was awesome. Sure, he wasn't the most technically sound nor did he have a passion for wrestling but he had an aura about him that made the fans interested in his character, thus making him one of the hottest commodities in WCW.

Goldberg's character was simply an ass-kicking machine. He didn't need to cut a promo nor did he need to wrestle over 5 minutes. His matches were short, sweet, and to the point which helped him gain fans in the long run.

Hey people, when Goldberg came to wwe? did he really help ratings? Absolutely not. He's wasn't that huge of a draw.
