Goldberg

Undefeated streak (1997–1998)


  • Goldberg's win-loss record at WCW events from 1997 to 1998 differed from that which was perpetrated by the company, with the official figure exaggerating the number of matches in which he won to 173.
  •  Nick Schwartz of Fox Sports wrote: "No one really knows what Goldberg's actual record was... but it's generally accepted that 173–0 is an inflated number".
  •  Some of Goldberg's industry peers have stated that the figure was exaggerated.
  •  His then-WCW colleague Chris Jericho stated: "One week he'd be 42–0 and seven days later he'd be 58–0. 
  •  Manager Jimmy Hart, who also worked with Goldberg in WCW, regarded the level of embellishment as "kind of funny".
  • while professional wrestler The Miz said: "The number would just go on and on and on, to where it was like, 'Wait a second. 
  • How did he get this many wins in such a short time'?" This exaggeration damaged the streak's credibility among the WCW audience: upon noticing that the figure had been falsified, fans began to withdraw homemade signs trumpeting Goldberg's record.

All Japan Pro Wrestling (2002–2003)

  • Goldberg had suffered an arm injury during the Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race at the Long Beach Grand Prix in April 2002. 
  • In August 2002, he returned to the ring in Japan. He initially joined All Japan Pro Wrestling (AJPW), defeating Satoshi Kojima and Taiyō Kea.
  •  He went on to defeat Rick Steiner in a match for the W-1 promotion and teamed with Keiji Mutoh to defeat KroniK.
  •  His success in Japan led to the WWF – now renamed World Wrestling Entertainment – to begin contract negotiations with him.

World Wrestling Entertainment (2003–2004)

  • After leaving Japan, Goldberg signed a one-year contract with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) in March 2003, debuting on the March 31 episode of Raw (the night after WrestleMania XIX) and starting a feud with The Rock by performing a spear on him.
  •  Their rivalry intensified when The Rock held a segment entitled The Rock Concert, where he taunted Goldberg along with Gillberg, but Goldberg defeated him in his debut match at Backlash on April 27, following three spears and a Jackhammer.
  • Goldberg went undefeated over the subsequent half-year, defeating 3-Minute Warning in his first match on Raw. 
  • Goldberg defeated Christian the following week on Raw in a steel cage match
  •  on February 15, Goldberg reemerged from the crowd and cost Lesnar the title.
  • Lesnar then demanded a match with Goldberg at WrestleMania XX on March 14, with Austin serving as special guest referee.
  • Fans knew this would be the final WWE match for both Goldberg and Lesnar and thus gave largely negative reactions throughout the performance.
  •  Goldberg won the match, causing Lesnar to show Austin a middle finger, but he instead received a Stone Cold Stunner in return, and as Goldberg celebrated his victory with Austin, he also received a Stone Cold Stunner.
