*** 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 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'').

* PowerWalk: When he started to become the face of WCW, his entrances to the ring were marked by one. It went something like this:
** After his opponent entered the ring, a camera would catch someone knocking on a dressing room door, where the sound of Goldberg headbutting a locker could be heard.
** Goldberg bursts forth from the room, surrounded by a squad of security guards/cops.
** The camera follows them through the backstage area, as his entrance theme kicks on, and fans begin chanting "Goldberg!"
** The ring announcer begins building up Goldberg by describing all the things he has done to that point, as Goldberg finally emerges at the entrance ramp, surrounded by pyrotechnics.
** The ring announcer finally ends his hype up by announcing "That man is Goldberg!" as he emerges from the fireworks breathing smoke like a dragon before giving a war cry, as even more fireworks go off. Suffice to say, it is awesome.

* BadassGrandpa: Pushing fifty and not only is he still jacked, but still strong enough to hit the Jackhammer on someone as big as Wrestling/{{Rusev|AndLana}}. He later did one better, [[spoiler: absolutely ''flattening'' Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series, in under two minutes]].

* CombatPragmatist: After shoving Wrestling/BrockLesnar down during their match in ''Survivor Series 2016'', the latter took his sweet time getting up [[UnderestimatingBadassery because he didn't see Goldberg as a threat.]] Goldberg responded by delivering a Spear to Lesnar as he's getting up rather than let The Beast catch his breath.

* 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.]] 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}} burying the hatchet with WWE. The dirtsheet rumors circulating about WWE trying to contact Goldberg about coming back also don't help matters...and he returned on the October 17 episode of ''Raw'', to accept a challenge from Lesnar for a rematch at Survivor Series.

* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Goldberg is the "Someone Better" to Wrestling/BrockLesnar. According to Wrestling/PaulHeyman, Lesnar has been kept up at night ''constantly'' by the fact that Goldberg is one-up on Lesnar for the past 12 years. [[spoiler:Goldberg proves to be Lesnar's better once again in ''Survivor Series 2016'' [[CurbStompBattle when he pins Lesnar in 86 seconds]].]]

** This is how [[spoiler:his return match against Wrestling/BrockLesnar went in ''Survivor Series 2016''. The "match" ended in 86 seconds with Goldberg pinning Lesnar after two Spears and a Jackhammer.]]
