Despite advancing in age, Goldberg has received several WWE titled chances in recent years. Da Man's attitude both in and out of the WWE ring has often made his colleagues or WWE Universe fans turn up their noses, but his enormous impact on this business, past and present, is undeniable.
The former WCW star played his last match at Crown Jewel, Saudi Arabia, where he had one of the best performances of his entire career. Goldberg in fact beat former WWE Champion Bobby Lashley leaving fans and insiders stunned, after churning out a performance that we hardly see an athlete over 50 do.
During his professional career, the 55-year-old from Tulsa scored 313 wins out of 365 matches, taking away the satisfaction of remaining undefeated for 456 consecutive days. In that time frame, he won 155 matches in a row, although WCW has 173 matches.
Goldberg surprised the WWE Universe
In his latest interview with the microphones of the documentary "Goldberg at 54", entirely dedicated to the life and above all to the career of McMahon's WWE Hall of Famer, Da Man wanted to state: "I genuinely appreciate every single human being that I have met as a fan in my career because it means that I have really done something good in my path.
People see me as a mythological character. When I'm in the ring, every time I walk into a show, full of people, no matter how old I am. Only the desire you have is authentic, your diligence at work. I never imagined not having this opportunity.
I never imagined it would be taken away from me the desire to go out there and do what I do since I am at the top. So things change people and everything changes from person to person and situations change too. I may be 54, but I still intend to move on, as I still continue to learn about this business and I will always continue to do so, as long as I have something to offer, you know, until then I will be a part of this."
The scene sent shock waves throughout the audience. Since then, he's been portrayed as one of the most dominant competitors to ever step into a squared circle. The former WCW World Heavyweight Champion uses the spear as his finisher, and so does the Tribal Chief.
Fans have been waiting for them to use their versions of the punishing maneuver against each other in a singles showdown since 2016.
