The world of wrestling is huge, with wrestling promotions existing on virtually every continent on the planet. Many of these promotions are independent entities, but there are others that function as big corporations. Two of the biggest promotions to have ever existed were World Championship Wrestling and World Wrestling Entertainment, and they were both each other’s biggest rival, to the point that their ratings competition incited what has come to be known as “The Monday Night War”. The WWE came out of the “war” victorious, purchasing their former rival, and then signing many of their star wrestlers.
One of these stars was Goldberg, whose popularity among the fans was virtually on the same level as other greats like The Rock and Hulk Hogan. Goldberg was known for his intimidating and physical demeanor, and for his jackhammer and spear finishers. This past week, the two-time World Heavyweight Champion entered back into the wrestling limelight when he appeared in a commercial for WWE’s new video game, an appearance that has ignited speculation on whether he will be returning for one more match. In light of this speculation, it seems only fair that people get to know a few interesting things about the future Hall of Famer, so here is a list of 15 things you did not know about Goldberg.
15 He Played In The NFL
14 He Was 173-0 After His WCW Debut
13 He Has His Own Podcast
12 He Has Starred In Multiple Movies
11 He Sparred With Kimbo Slice
10 He Has Three Cats And A Goat
9 He Speared A Guy After Throwing A First Pitch
8 He Wrestled Under A Different Name At The Beginning
7 He Got Into A Fight With Chris Jericho Backstage
6 Sting And Lex Luger Discovered Him In A Gym
5 He Loves Vintage Cars
4 He Almost Had A Degree In Psychology
3 He Ended Bret Hart’s Career
2 He Is A Vegetarian
1 He's Only Been Pinned 5 Times In His Career
Earlier, it was stated that Goldberg had an incredibly long undefeated streak, but what is even more surprising, and even quite astonishing, is the fact that he barely ever lost a match period. Throughout the entirety of his main roster career in both WCW and WWE, Goldberg was only pinned 5 times, a feat that sounds absurd in today's wrestling world, but which is also completely true. Kevin Nash, Scott Steiner, Booker T, Bret Hart and Triple H are the only men to ever beat Goldberg in a match, and they did so with aid from someone else. Had there not been any outside interference whatsoever, it is quite possible that Goldberg could have gone his entire career without a loss.
