    No, I did it with a forked fucking stick that's normally used to look for water.

Actually, that's a pretty abnormal use for a fucking stick. Maybe you meant a water-lookin' stick.

Anyway. I had no problems with the way Goldberg sold the Jericho Spear (which would be move #854, I believe); hell, I was pretty busy being pleased that he did pull that kind of shit on him. I love cheeky rudo psychology like that. I don't think I was really expecting Goldberg to sell it like he was dead; for one thing, it would be completely out of character for anything to lay Goldberg out cold for a long time, and for another thing, I don't think he could act well enough to convince us it was lethal anyway. 'Roll over', 'play dead' -- those are hard, man. I mean, you need to take classes to pull those off. (Notice how the Rock always feels the need to show off his ability to do so.)

I am not a Goldberg fan in the least but I think the way he sold the spear was fine. Goldberg doesn't have to sell the spear to the degree others sell it for him. The reason is cause Goldberg uses the spear more often and sometimes as a finisher. Y2J doesn't use the spear all to often and he seemed to do it just to spite Goldy. If Rhyno had been the one to spear (or Gore) him I would hope Goldberg would sell it more since that is a move Rhyno uses more often.

Anybody can sell a chair to the knee, but only Nash can sell the "Finger Poke Of Death".

I agree with NOTORIOUS FAB, of course it didnt hurt and i think hes awesome. Me, being a DT, like Goldberg, and wanting to someday mabey be a wrestler, i think goldberg sold it fine. And hes a machine, no one should boo him. Hes an ass kicker and people should know it. And in the case of his "boys" ya, its a sign of disrespect, but who cares? he says it cuz he can back it up. Thats my number 1 rule, dont talk shit if u cant back it up, and Goldberg can definantly back it up.

Besides, if Goldberg answered "No, Sir!" and "Yes, Sir" it would look sort of silly.

"Who ate my sandwich???"

I was actually there live when it happened (yes, my one claim to fame in life... sigh...) and it was the funniest thing. When Goldberg speared him, it was utter silence for a good minute at the arena. Nobody knew what the hell was going on... of course, Bret got a great pop when he showed off the steel plate, but it was just an odd bit of booking.

Then, when Bret ``quit'' WCW , half the crowd couldn't tell who he was talking to because Bischoff had recently stopped dyeing his hair, and looked like a different person. Just an odd segment overall... but cool in its own way. Don't know if it came across the same on TV.

Check out the latest Inside The Ropes at and if you want to keep reading it, let the board know! Cheap pop (Thumbs up)

First, I'd disagree slightly that the recent Rumble winners have been telegraphed.
