Goldberg Reveals How He Wanted His WCW Streak To End, More


Goldberg went on a tear during his days in WCW, going on a 173-0 winning streak before being  defeated by Kevin Nash at Starrcade 1998. The match came to an end when Scott Hall, who was posing as a security guard at the pay-per-view event, wound up tasering him.

During a recent interview with CBS Sports’ Shakiel Mahjouri, Goldberg commented on how he wanted the match to end using a different type of taser that looked more realistic.

You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On how he would have liked the streak to end: “I mean, it’s kind of common knowledge at this point, but I wanted a different type of taser. I wanted it to be more realistic. I actually wanted the one that they shoot in you, and they light you up with, yeah … I thought that was — you know, you had to you had to come with something out of the ordinary to take a dude like me down. And I think that would have been pretty cool. But eh, you know.

“And like I said, I’m not a booker by any stretch of the imagination. I don’t have the imagination to do it. But uh, I don’t know. Run me over with a truck or something.”

On the appeal of the stream and if it was embellished: “No I mean literally I don’t think they — I don’t know at what point they they truly grabbed a hold of the streak and had a finality to it. But I think it was something that, they fed off the fans week after week. And I think they gave the fans what they wanted.

“As far as inflation is concerned, I think I wrestled Jerry Flynn like five or six times during this. But you know, I can’t tell you as to whether it was truly inflated or not. It probably was, but it’s the world of wrestling … I just showed up and did what they told me to do, man.”
