** This got turned UpToEleven the moment he squashed big time IWC favorite Kevin Owens for the Universal Championship at Fastlane 2017. With his victory receiving a very mixed reception from what had been, up until that point, a very pro-Goldberg fanbase. Much of this stems from the perceived mindset that Goldberg ''didn't need'' the Universal Championship to begin with. And having a younger talent like Owens drop it to a part timer (and one who is well past his prime to be brutally honest) like Goldberg made no sense in the long run.



** He was originally beloved during his triumphant return to WWE in 2016, with his subsequent [[CurbStompBattle thrashings]] against Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series 2016, and Royal Rumble 2017 endearing him to the crowd more than ever before. Than came Fastlane 2017, where he delivered the same treatment to major EnsembleDarkhorse Kevin Owens. From that moment onwards whatever fan support he'd garnered all but vanished. As his victory over Owens drew a very noticeable mixed reaction from the live crowd. It got so bad that fans actually cheered for ''Brock Lesnar'' (the same man they wanted to see Goldberg demolish just a few months ago) over him at Wrestlemania 33.

* InternetBackdraft: He became the subject of a massive one following his curb stomp victory over IWC darling Wrestling/KevinOwens, for the WWE Universal Championship at Fastlane 2017.



** Their match at [=WrestleMania=] 33 [[EvenBetterSequel was even better]]. It went for about five minutes this time, and the match was filled with nonstop action.

** The fans dissension towards him was all but cemented the following Raw after Wrestlemania. Where Brock Lesnar received a hero's ovation for vanquishing him the previous night. And when Paul Heyman announced in a heel promo that they shouldn't expect to see Goldberg anytime soon, this was received with ''cheers'' instead of the expected boos.

* 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.

* 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.

* FunnyMoments: Headbutted a door on the 23rd of January 2017 RAW on his way out of the locker room in an attempt to look more badass, but ended up busting his head open and dazing himself. Even funnier if you knew that Wrestling/CMPunk quit WWE in that exact same office. Maybe it's cursed?

* BrokenBase: [[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.]]
