When it comes to being a physical pro wrestler, Bill Goldberg is a guy that was known for working a very physical style.
Some of Goldberg’s trademark moves in wrestling include the Spear that he used as a setup move followed by the Jackhammer slam that won Goldberg many matches and major championships.
A lot of fans also know about what happened at WCW Starrcade 1999. During a match with two-time WWE Hall of Famer Bret “Hitman” Hart, Goldberg kicked him hard in the head, which gave Bret a serious concussion. Bret still worked after it, but the concussion ended up causing his career to end.
To this day, Bret Hart often does interviews ripping on Goldberg for injuring him with that errant kick to the head. Goldberg has apologized for it many times over the last 20+ years, but it appears as though those two men are never going to get past it.
Goldberg debuted in WWE in 2003 at a time when Renee Dupree was one of the youngest guys on the WWE roster. During a recent episode of his Cafe de Rene podcast, Dupree claimed Goldberg was overrated and also dangerous in the ring.
“As far as talent, Goldberg, yeah, because he was so goddamn dangerous in the ring. But he wasn’t there long too. He didn’t even do house shows, man. I think he did one or two house show loops the whole time he was there. If you can get the deal, go for it. Good for you.”
After his one year run in WWE ended in 2004, Goldberg returned to the company in 2016 leading to many more matches in the last six years.
