* LiesDamnedLiesAndStatistics: Nobody could have predicted the Goldberg phenomena. WCW just didn't know how to finesse it. They starting inflating the streak numbers (and piping in chants) to make him seem even more over than he actually was.

* WhamShot: Gotta give WWE credit for a magnificent piece of camera work: Goldberg's rematch against Brock Lesnar at ''Survivor Series 2016'' started with Lesnar powering Goldberg into the corner, only for Goldberg to shove the Beast down and roar at him intimidatingly. The camera provided a close-up of Brock shrugging the threat with his usual sneer, but as he turned to get up the camera cut back to a longer shot just in time to see Goldberg's Spear ''smash'' into Brock like a battering ram, nearly snapping him in half.

** The abdomen tear that he suffered, which he described as "completely off the hip bone", ended his NFL career.

* GameBreakingInjury: Shredded tendons in his forearm [[SoftGlass punching through a limo window]] instead of using the crowbar that was planted [[RealityEnsues to keep this from happening]]. This injury shelved him for several months at what was still a critical stage of the MondayNightWars. It killed his momentum and any chance for WCW to rebuild around him.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Goldberg didn't start using the spear until after his first two dozen or so matches, and some of his early matches were back and forth rather than the squashes he'd become famous for.

** His trademark "stand in the pyro and breathe out the smoke entrance" was absent until mid-'98.

* OldShame:
** Early in his career he was put into a match with WilliamRegal that was supposed to go six minutes, then the longest match of his career, and arguably the absolute worst match of his career. The match exposed Goldberg's shortcomings, and he believes Regal set out to embarrass him out of jealousy and "took liberties" (hit him with real punches and kicks to hurt him). Regal insists that Goldberg froze up at the prospect of having to have a six-minute competitive match, and he had to try and carry Goldberg. When they got to the back EricBischoff was furious and Regal told him, "I can't hit myself."
** Even Goldberg admits that it was pretty stupid to [[SoftGlass punch a limo window with his bare hands]] and that the subsequent injury is probably what derailed his career and killed his momentum, and any chance WCW had of building back up around him.

Goldberg became famous for having the longest winning streak ("The Streak" as it was known) in WCW history, having won 173 consecutive matches, and in the process, winning the [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wcw/wcw-us-h.html WCW United States Heavyweight Championship,]] and later, the [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wcw/wcw-h.html WCW World Heavyweight Championship]] before [[BrokenWinLossStreak the streak came to an end]] at ''Starrcade 1998''; he also became infamous for being the man responsible for retiring Wrestling/BretHart, giving him a concussion with a kick to the head that - coupled with other concussions suffered around the same timeframe - forced The Hitman out of the ring for good. (At least until 2010.) Nowadays, Goldberg has semi-retired, and spends time doing television shows centered around motorcycles and automobiles, as well as serving as an MMA commentator. As of late 2016, he's returned to wrestling with WWE, where he won the WWE Universal Champion.
