WWE legend Goldberg's best momentsGoldberg had a big night on Sunday at Fastlane, but you can relive his even bigger nights on the WWE Network.
Year is twenty seventeen and Bill Goldberg is the biggest pro wrestler in the world. Somebody called the Backstreet Boys, we're having a come back party at Fastlane on Sunday night. Goldberg won the WWE Universal Championship, the first time he's won a wrestling title in fourteen years. Next month, he'll headline Wrestlemania thirty three in a big match against Brock Lesnar. So what better time to look back at the best moments of Goldberg's career? Goldberg is a pure simple. Watching him smash people is really, really fun. Many [UNKNOWN] on his WWE run that at Summer Slam 2003's elimination chamber match, he gave one of his smashes performances ever. Goldberg was the second last to enter the eliminations star match. When he did, it was like watching a demolition derby. When pro wrestlers come up with their finishing move, they often think could I do this to any body size? As it turns out, Goldberg can do pretty much anything to anyone. Case in point, he lifted the 500 pound Big Show high into the air to deliver his signature Jackhammer move. [APPLAUSE] Last October, Goldberg made his long way to return to Monday Night Raw, and what a return it was. Not only does that mean that you're next, but most importantly, it means, Brock Lesnar, you're last! [APPLAUSE] [APPLAUSE] [MUSIC] Pretty badass mike drop for a 49 year old. He was only meant to wrestle one match against Brock. But he was such a hit that WWE signed him on for a few more. Now he's WWE champ, and on his way to one of his biggest matches ever. Okay, it is kind of cheating, because it's not technically a moment. But if you ask older fans about their memories of Goldberg, his entrance will always come up. The camera will follow him as he walks around his dressing room to the curtain. He'd be flanked by a team of security guards. The crowd would be chanting his name. When he enters the arena, he's engulfed in sparks. He inhales the fumes from the pyro and breathes it out like a dragon. On July 6, 1998, Goldberg went from promising up and comer to legit pro wrestling superstar. A record 5 million homes across the US tuned in to watch the undefeated Goldberg defeat Hulk Hogan to win the WCW Championship. It was one of the biggest moments of pro wrestling's biggest era. Goldberg first stood at the peak of pro wrestling in 1998. In 2017, he's back on top. Goldberg, Goldberg.
