* SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: Even though it only lasted a minute and [[spoiler:Lesnar got almost no offense in]], the Brock vs. Goldberg match at Survivor Series 2016 was still way better than their match at [=WrestleMania=] XX.



* OlderThanTheyThink: He may have been the one to name the Jackhammer, but he didn't invent it. The earliest example of it could be found in the Athol Foley[[note]]Real name Bernie Wright, uncle of WCW's Alex Wright, and the kayfabe "son" of heel manager JR Foley, real name John Foley, no relation to those [[Wrestling/JimRoss other]] [[Wrestling/MickFoley guys]][[/note]] v. Wendi Richter match from Stampede Wrestling in June 1983. Jaguar Yokota used it on Wrestling/LionessAsuka during their match on August 22, 1985. Wrestling/DeanMalenko used it on Gedo during their match at the Super J Cup 1994.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Goldberg came out for a PPV match against Perry Saturn having apparently not shaved his head for several days. Whether it was testing out a new look or just Goldberg choosing not to shave for whatever reason, he was back on Nitro the next day bald as usual.
* BrokenBase: That one scene on ''Raw'' when Wrestling/{{Goldust}} puts a wig on [=Goldberg=] has been known to cause endless debates on certain wrestling forums.
** [[spoiler: His squashing of Wrestling/BrockLesnar at Survivor Series 2016 where he pinned Lensar in over a minute and a half. For some it was a legitimately shocking moment that finally made Lesnar look vulnerable after months of booking where he was made to look invincible to the point fans were getting sick of it, while making Goldberg look like an absolute beast upon his return (not to mention that with how badly their first encounter went, few people wanted to see another long match from the two and this was the best way to do it). Others though are less than pleased with getting treated to a squash match after the massive amount of hype it garnered leading up to the PPV, and believe that the entire stunt echoes dangerously Wrestling/AntonioInoki's infamous booking style and has unnecesarily damaged Lesnar's aura, specially considering a near 50-year-old man with 12 years worth of ring rust has been the one to end Lesnar's dominant reign instead of a younger up-and-comer.]]

* {{Misblamed}}: Critics have been hard on him in hindsight; pointing to his lack of ring skill and short matches. However, this was largely because he was rushed through the WCW power plant and hot-shotted to a main event level very quickly (He won the world title only ten months after his TV debut). Even Goldberg has admitted that he probably should have been in training longer, but once Bischoff set the plan in motion there was no turning back. Most of the people in the business usually say he was a great guy, but he got pushed beyond his ability and let it go to his head. But most of them blame Bischoff and the WCW brass for his shortcomings, especially since the WCW Power Plant has a reputation for having been a shitty training center.
* SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome:
** ''Started'' his career this way. In his TV debut on the September 22, 1997 Nitro, he defeated [[Wrestling/HughMorrus "The Laughing Man" Hugh Morrus]], becoming the first man to kick out of Morrus' [[FinishingMove No Laughing Matter moonsault]]. This led to a SugarWiki/{{heartwarming moment|s}} a few years later when Morrus, a career lower mid-carder rose up the ranks and won the US title. In an in-ring celebration, Goldberg fondly recalled that his famous streak began with Morrus putting him over.
** Defeating [[Wrestling/HulkHogan Hollywood Hogan]] for the [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wcw/wcw-h.html WCW World Heavyweight Championship]] is considered by many to be the greatest night in the history of Nitro.
