If you want to know Goldberg's future wrestling plans, or perhaps his commentary on the demise of WCW, now you can ask him personally.

And help three worthy charities - each picked by Goldberg - in the process.

The former WCW World Champion will sign autographs July 14th at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas, headlining the annual Tri-Star Productions Collectors Showcase. Prior to his appearance, Tri-Star has teamed with eBay to offer a unique experience: Lunch with Goldberg.

The winning bidder (and a guest) will have lunch with Goldberg prior to his signing session. And all money raised from the auction will be split between the Texas Children's Hospital in Houston (the largest pediatric hospital in the country), ARF (Tony LaRussa's Animal Rescue Foundation) and Save-A-Pet (a no-kill animal shelter in Grayslake, Ill.) .

This is Goldberg's first public autograph session in close to three years. Also appearing at the show are Heisman Trophy winners Eddie George, Ricky Williams and Desmond Howard; Pro Football Hall of Famers Dave Casper and Dan Hampton; Baseball Hall of Famer Lou Brock; Houston Astros players Lance Berkman, Roy Oswalt and Carlos Hernandez; members of the Houston Texans and more.

"It is a thrill to be part of an autograph lineup that includes Hall of Famers and so many current football and baseball stars," Goldberg said. "Tri-Star has a great reputation and it is an honor for me to be involved with such a select group of past and present sports superstars.

"I look forward to having lunch with the auction winner. With proceeds going to three extremely worthwhile causes - Texas Children's Hospital in Houston, ARF and Save-A-Pet - the winner of this auction will know that his or her contribution will be well utilized. Bring on the bids and, to the winner, You're Next!"

It takes a special type of man to do something like this.

Thank you,Bill Goldberg.

Can someone ask this overrated nutjob why he seems to like punching cars? And ask him if he believes he was ever a long-term draw? (He wasn't)

this is also the same man that thought it was smart to punch through some glass and see how much damage he could do to his arm...

i don't like him because of the tiny bird legs he had...so at least i'm on him for something that matters ^_^

Here's the difference: Droz ain't Bret Hart, and D'Lo ain't Goldberg.

I'm not trying to take anything away from the Droz incident. My point is that the players involved in Hart/Goldberg had a much higher profile than Droz/D'Lo.

Think about it this way: How many double homicides happen every year? And how much attention do they receive from the media compared to the Simpson trial?

Here's an equation. D-Lo (no "w") = internet darling. Bill Goldberg = internet pariah.

Internet darling = can do no wrong, while internet pariah = everything he does is wrong.

Thus, D-Lo = can do no wrong, while Bill Goldberg = everything he does is wrong.

That's just the way it works on the dang ol' internet.

I actually have no problem with Goldberg, and think that not bringing him in for the Invasion at least was a huge mistake, I'm just wondering why we need to post his press releases.

Actually, the difference between the incidents involving D'Lo and Goldberg is that D'Lo is a safe worker with a great rep among his peers who had a horribly unfortunate accident in the ring. Goldberg's kick to Hart is just one of many reasons his peers dreaded working with his sloppy (and therefore dangerous) ass. He never bothered to learn how to wrestle safely, though people depended on just that every time they stepped into the ring with him.

Papercuts: I think there are a couple of other reasons why D-Lo was "forgiven" as opposed to Goldberg:

- D-Lo seemed extremely apologetic about the incident. Goldberg on the other hand has never seemed to show any remorse for what he did, and in interviews almost seems contemptuous of wrestlers he injured for not being tough enough to handle his sloppily delivered moveset.

- D-Lo was punished for what he did. He was removed from the main roster and sent into developmental obscurity. Goldberg on the other hand never seemingly suffered and repurcussions from this or any other of his foolish injurious actions.

- Droz has at least publicly forgiven D-Lo for what he did. Bret Hart has never given that kind of forgiveness to Goldberg that I've seen, for pretty good reasons as said above.

I think that to bring this down to something as simple and cliched as "the net geeks like one guy but not the other" is really ignoring some essential parts of the situation in order to fit into a larger philosophy of "net geeks suck"



Anyone remember the joy of seeing him bash the Undertaker's motorcycle with his sledgemhammer and doing no damage and being all like, "Mjolnir will not break thine cycle? I say thee NAY!" and dumping it off the stage. - Enojado Viento says the funniest thing I've ever read on Wienerville.

False.

He was on television on a regular basis for some time after the accident. He went on to form Low Down with Chazz, where they were the two guys that were friends from back in the day that formed a tag-team. That was late 2000. Early 2001, they were saddled with Tiger Ali Singh and started dressing like arabs. It was shortly after the Royal Rumble 2001 (well after Droz' injury) that Singh was injured and D-Lo and Chazz were then taken off T.V. til their manager could heal. In the interm, Chaz was let go and, IIRC, Singh was as well. With nothing left for him to do, they sent him to the devleopmentals to polish up his abilities. It was a case of "We've got nothing to do with D-Lo, send him to OVW or wherever until we can think of something."

What does this have to do with people online liking D-Lo and not liking Bill Goldberg?

And I think you're reading into my statements (again). While I'm no fan of the overly jaded internet fan, not --everything-- I say has to do with the fact that I don't like them, nor is it a tacit implication that YOU, spf2119 ARE ONE OF THEM. In fact, the earlier statement I made in the thread is more about the culture of the IWC than anything else. I was casting no judgment anywhere.

I swear, the more charity Goldberg does, the more I despise him. I know that's not right, I know he's quite possibly a good guy, but he always strikes me as trying to get brownie points and attone for being involved with that nasty wrestling business.

But hey, sick childrens' is cool with me and it keeps his pompous ass off my WWE television, so bully for him.

And I thought the theory du jour was that Bret faked (or exagerrated) the injury to get away from a dying WCW.



I don't really understand what Debaser said but I agree with him.

There's more to it than that, man... as WyldeWolf pointed out, D'Lo's situation was a horrible accident that was, essentially, both of their faults. Goldberg stiffed Hart with a move that had no reason to connect that hard.

This is a guy who BRAGGED about being sloppy enough to legitimately hurt his opponents. He thought it was COOL that he broke a man's ribs after a too-stiff spear. Hell, that's part of the reason WHY he's not Mr. Popular in the first place.

If D'Lo had acted the same way? He'd be hated on just as much, probably more because he nearly KILLED a man. You're oversimplifying, big-time.

Yeah Goldberg's sloppy work is my biggest complaint. But the "I'm not a pussy watch me break this real glass." was really stupid. How many months did that cost him? Sure it was WCW and they would have fucked it up some other way but it really hurt the company so that GB could prove he is a man.
Isn't that why Benoit eventually wound up with the World Title? Hell, I can't remember why WCW did all the stupid things they did.

One of the problems I always had was when he became a Mark for himself with the calling out of Austin and challenging HHH at a trade fair. He may have been trying to make himself look like a big man, but he ended up looking like a complete goof.

I don't like Goldberg because he sucks in the ring, no-sells everything, and sucks on the mic. Other than that, he's an awesome sports entertainer. Seriously folks, what could he bring the WWE? Who could feud with this guy? He's awful and he hurts people. I don't need Kurt Angle on the shelf because Goldberg hasn't learned the fine-art of the kick.

As for Bill Goldberg, the man, he's weak too. Here's a guy who rips the wrestling business, talks about how it's a joke, and yet it's the only reason he has a forum to do so. He's a hypocrite, period. I will say the fact that he can't grasp the fact that he can't beat up a car is amusing though.

Also, how do you become a mark for yourself? I would like to think everyone is a mark for themselves. I mean, I don't boo me, I like me, I happen to think I'm awesome. If you're not a mark for yourself, you got problems.

Watch the tapes of that horrible angle D'Lo was stuck in, acting like a stereotypical Arabian guy along with Tiger Ali Singh and Chaz...

And you try and tell me with a straight face that the angle wasn't punishment. I can't imagine anybody thought that D'Lo would get over with that gimmick, or that anyone thought it wasn't extremely offensive. Hell, I was offended by it, and I'm a 20-year-old white guy.
