There are certain subjects I write about here that I have more connection to than others, and I’m sure it shines through in the articles I post, when it comes to science, technology, football, and certain other things I’m hooked and I write more from my heart than anything else. (yahoo) One thing that’s been an addiction of mine since about six years old is the pro wrestling business, my fascination with the business has changed and developed over the years, as I’ve grown what’s drawn my interest has shifted from just the characters to a deeper love for business side as well as the characters. (wwenews) There are certain characters and certain things in the business that are seen as the unheard of, the untouchable, and in some cases legendary, among those are the two most unattainable things in the business, both of which go by the same name, The Streak. (bleacherreport) While The Undertaker’s Streak was only 21 wins, that’s over a more than twenty year span, the other vaunted Streak is the one set by Bill Goldberg, reaching 173 wins in the ring before facing his first televised defeat, even in a scripted business these feats required faith in the workers in order to move forward, making them benchmarks that all others strive to match. (wwe)
Bill Goldberg is seen as one of the biggest stars in the industry, some sites have listed Goldberg as one of WWE’s biggest stars although he honestly wasn’t that important during his run in WWE, although he is one of the most profitable stars in the history of WCW. (wikipedia) While many people would never put Goldberg in their rankings of the top in ring workers in the history of the business, he was certainly one of the biggest characters during his WCW run, when he came to WWE whether it be booking or his attitude, things just never quite played out and while he was a main eventer he just wasn’t the same man he was in WCW. (thatguywiththeglasses) For a couple years now there have been rumors of WWE and Goldberg working out a return to the ring, but nothing have ever materialized, the latest issue had Vince McMahon wanting him to return as a heel while Goldberg felt it would be better to return as a babyface. (wrestlingnewsworld) After the flop of Vince’s insistence that Batista return as a babyface, it’s possible he’s softened his stance on Goldberg as news has come out from Goldberg himself that he’s talking about a potential return to the ring again. (inquisitr) While a return, if done properly, would be a welcome thing with Goldberg, personally I won’t believe it until I see it, or at least until it’s certified by Richard Gray, since he seems to have his finger on the pulse of the business.
