* CelebrityResemblance: Wrestling/SteveAustin, from a distance; both were bald men with beards in black wrestling trunks. During the height of the Monday Night Wars, Goldberg was often mistaken as Steve Austin and vice-versa, with fans even calling them by the other's name.



* CurbStompBattle: A lot of his wins from The Streak were this; though how many were against jobbers is debatable.

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 [[BrokenStreak 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 retired, and spends time doing television shows centered around motorcycles and automobiles, as well as serving as an MMA commentator.

Added DiffLines:

** The dirtsheet rumors circulating about WWE trying to contact Goldberg about coming back for the Brand Split also don't help matters...although these are only rumors.

* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Zig-zagged. He's nice to fans as long as you don't bother him while he's with his family. But was said to be an asshole backstage, particularly in WWE.

* TenMinuteRetirement: Played with. Goldberg hasn't wrestled since 2004 and seemed uninterested in returning to the ring until an interview in 2015 where he expressed interest in wrestling one final match [[SoMyKidsCanWatch so his son could watch.]] On June 7, 2015 at the ''Legends of Wrestling'' show in New York, while not scheduled to wrestle at the event, Goldberg would come to the aid of Wrestling/RobVanDam after his match with Wrestling/ScottSteiner, and hit both of his finishing moves on Steiner and Doc Gallows. He's also gone back and forth on this claim, and since he and WWE weren't on very good terms, it seemed a bit unlikely that he'll return. Until he was announced as the PreOrderBonus for ''[[Videogame/WWEVideoGames WWE 2K17]]'', the same deal that led to both Wrestling/UltimateWarrior and Wrestling/{{Sting}} to return/debut.

*** Goldberg did not even appear at ''WCW Fall Brawl 1998'', which had as its "main event" the all-time worst [[GimmickMatches War Games]] match in the match's 11-year history. It was Team WCW (Page/[[Wrestling/RoddyPiper "Rowdy" Roddy Piper]][=/=][[Wrestling/UltimateWarrior The]] [[WritingAroundTrademarks (Ultimate)]] [[Wrestling/UltimateWarrior Warrior]]) vs. Team nWo Hollywood ([[Wrestling/HulkHogan "Hollywood" Hulk Hogan]][=/=]Wrestling/BretHart/Stevie Ray [Wrestling/BookerT's brother] vs. Team nWo Wolfpac (Wrestling/KevinNash[=/=]Wrestling/LexLuger[=/=]Wrestling/{{Sting}}) in a match that featured Warrior {{expy|/ProfessionalWrestling}} The Renegade making a surprise appearance imitating the Warrior and everyone in the match having to "play dead" for Warrior's "magic smoke." Page won the match by pinning Stevie Ray, after Hogan and UW had broken out of the cage. This monstrous idiocy DID lead to the great Goldberg-DDP match at ''Havoc'', as the match had a stipulation that whoever got the pinfall victory would earn a shot at the WCW World Heavyweight Championship at ''Havoc'', plus they had to save the show after the disastrous Hogan-Warrior rematch (Hulk wanted UW to job for him in return for him jobbing for UW way back at ''Wrestling/{{WrestleMania}} VI'').

** At the July PPV, ''Bash at the Beach'', the "main event" was Hogan and [[UsefulNotes/NationalBasketballAssociation pro basketball player]] Dennis Rodman defeating Diamond Dallas Page and pro basketball player Karl Malone. Goldberg was second from the top, defeating Wrestling/CurtHennig.
** The August PPV, ''Road Wild'', had Page and ''Series/TheTonightShow'' host ''Jay Leno'' defeating Hogan and WCW boss Wrestling/EricBischoff, who had been mocking Leno on Nitro, as the "main event," with Goldberg second from the top again winning a meaningless battle royal against a bunch of [[Wrestling/NewWorldOrder nWo]] guys. (For contrast, consider that [[Wrestling/{{WWE}} WWF]]'s ''Wrestling/{{SummerSlam}}'' PPV the same month had [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wwe/wwe-h.html WWF Champion]] Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin defeating Wrestling/TheUndertaker in Taker's [[DefeatingTheUndefeatable first 100% clean PPV loss ever]] as its main event.)
