Next week, WWE will release a DVD and Blu-ray highlighting the career of Bill Goldberg, Goldberg – The Ultimate Collection. He is perhaps best known for his 173-0 undefeated streak in World Championship Wrestling in 1998. In anticipation of the video release, the official WWE website has published an article looking at the five wrestlers who hold the distinction of pinning Goldberg.
All five individuals were world champions. They are Kevin Nash at the 1998 Starrcade pay-per-view event, Bret Hart on the October 25, 1999 episode of WCW Monday Nitro, Booker T on the July 24, 2000 episode of WCW Monday Nitro, Scott Steiner at the 2000 Fall Brawl pay-per-view event, and Triple H at the 2003 SummerSlam.
There is at least one omission from the article as Totally Buffed (Lex Luger and Buff Bagwell) defeated Goldberg and DeWayne Bruce at the WCW’s 2001 pay-per-view event Sin. Totally Buffed won the match when Luger pinned Goldberg after a Buff Blockbuster from Bagwell with Goldberg on Luger’s shoulders. As a result, Goldberg was forced to retire from World Championship Wrestling.
