* AmericansHateTingle: Or rather Canadians are still sore about his botched mule kick that ended Wrestling/BretHart's career.
* 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.
* [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome Crowning Moment of Awesome]]: ''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]].
** 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.
* [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic Crowning Music Of Awesome]][=/=]{{Leitmotif}}: "[[http://youtu.be/UNdjG2BX0go Invasion]]", the piece of production music that served as Goldberg's WCW theme; when his theme switched over to a song by Music/{{Megadeth}}, fans considered it a ''step down''. (His WWE theme, [[SuspiciouslySimilarSong while sounding remarkably like "Invasion"]], is considered inferior to the original.)
* FridgeBrilliance: The first time Goldberg took a sledgehammer shot from Triple H, he went down for a 3; but he kicked out the next time it happened. Makes a lot of sense, when you remember the first one happened as he tried to spear Triple H.
* HolyShitQuotient: His Jackhammer on [[Wrestling/TheBigShow The Giant]], as detailed in the Awesome section.
* MemeticBadass: "Goldberg's security is actually not to protect him, but to protect everyone else from him" is just one of many jokes about his unreal power.
* 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 Lioness Asuka during their match on August 22, 1985. Wrestling/DeanMalenko used it on Gedo during their match at the Super J Cup 1994.
