WWE NEWS: Six Sins Of WWE Megastar Bill Goldberg — Huge Details

From a backstage fight with Jericho, to ending Bret Hart’s career, to lying about his 173-0 streak, here are Goldberg’s six sins!

Almost two decades since his debut, Goldberg is still the biggest babyface in sports entertainment today. Even with his limited in-ring skills, he remains an icon to little kids around the world and is a huge ratings draw to this very day.

Despite his illustrious career, his path to the top hasn’t been as stain-free as one may believe. There are blemishes in Goldberg’s past that we will bring to you in this exclusive feature. Sadly, one of the nicest men inside and outside the ring has a rather colourful history.

Presenting the seven sins of the legend himself, Bill Goldberg!

#6 Wrath: Real life fight with Chris Jericho

Chris Jericho, former World Television Champion in WCW, used to constantly call out Goldberg, the World Champion, in an attempt to wrestle a match against him.

However, in WCW there was a distinct line between the Cruiserweights and the Heavyweights, and it was stipulated that Jericho would lose to Goldberg in a squash match in all of 30 seconds. Angered by this, Jericho would quit WCW and move to WWE where he would go on to have a Hall of Fame worthy career.

Soon enough, WCW would fold and Goldberg would head to WWE as well.

Once in WWE, Jericho would hear rumours of how Goldberg was constantly talking behind his back. We already know that Jericho is never afraid to pick a fight (he got in Brock Lesnar’s face too after Summerslam this year), and he, therefore ended up confronting Goldberg about the same.

In the altercation that ensued, Jericho would grab Goldberg in a headlock and completely embarrass him. According to Jericho, “bullies like Goldberg” had never had anyone retaliate against them, so it took him by surprise.

Shame on Goldberg!

#5 Sloth: Ending Bret Hart’s career

While Bret Hart was the personification of technical proficiency, Goldberg was on the absolute other end of the spectrum. Bret Hart had a long and storied career, entertaining WWE and WCW fans through many rivalries. Ultimately a kick from Goldberg would bring his career to a complete halt.

Starrcade 99 was the scene of the sin. At the event, which was like Wrestlemania for WCW, Goldberg and Bret Hart, former tag team champions, would face off against one another.

During the match, Hart sustained this career ending injury when Goldberg kicked him in the head and had further injuries when his head hit the ground since Goldberg wasn’t able to take a figure four leglock properly.

A tragic end to a brilliant career.

Bret Hart has often lamented that it’s sad that someone as good hearted as Goldberg was responsible for hurting him. Bret himself takes great pride about injuring no one all through his Hall-Of-Fame career.

If Goldberg had honed his craft and improved his in-ring skills, this mishap could have probably been avoided.
