From the Observer site:

"More on the Jim Ross OTR interview from yesterday. He said the new presentation of Goldberg would be a guy as an "animal" who fights a lot and talks little. "

Wow, it took them this long to actually think to book him in the same way that he originally got over in WCW?




January 4th 1999 - The day WCW injected itself with 10 gallons of Liquid Anthrax...AKA...The day Hogan "Defeated" Nash to win the WCW title in front of 40,000.

No kidding. Hasn't everyone and their mothers been saying that THIS is how Goldberg SHOULD be booked?

The problem is, though, is it too late?




What is Mattitude?
Utilizing the belief system and work ethic (Mattributes) of THE Matt Hardy to create a better life for yourself by fulfilling your goals and dreams. Mattitude is a quality that can help anyone -- regardless of background or past -- to achieve success. You just have to make it a lifestyle, a mindset, a religion. Mattitude, is something that can not be taught or learned. Mattitude is something that burns within. In the ring, Mattitude is the intangible, the x-factor, that gives me an advantage over everyone else.

This will certainly be closer to what we all want, but I suspect they'll miss the boat anyway (unlike Brock).

Goldberg should be someone who kicks ass and says nothing, perhaps with a dark, mysterious side to him. I'm sure Vince will turn him into a Kamala/Warlord/George Steele animal who's about as interesting as dirt.

It's not too late for Goldberg. In-ring charisma can make up for a lot of things.

You're reading it wrong. JR is talking about having Goldberg wrestle like an ANIMAL. They're obviously sponsoring the sequel to the mega-blockbuster hit starring Rob Schneider, and Goldberg's the co-star.

Look for Goldberg's new finisher, the "strangling throat bite", this coming RAW, as he kills and eats Christopher Nowinski.

You know I've never heard anyone make that joke before. You're the first. I've never heard anyone reference that outside program before. Because that's what she says on the show, right? Hmmm? 'You are the weakest link. Goodbye!' And ye...ye..yet you've taken it and....and used it out of context to insult me in this everyday situation. What a clever, smart girl you must be. To come up with a joke like that all by yourself. Mmmmm...that's so fresh too. Any Titanic jokes you want to throw at me as long as we're hitting these phenomena at the height of their popularity. Mmmm? Cuz i'm here God you're so funny!

Steve Austin was once the ringmaster, asking fans to touch their tv screens while the camera gets a close-up of his hand so they can touch greatness.

The Rock was once strappy buck Rocky Miavia, who wore a tassel dishiki to the ring and was rumored to be an island prince.

Hulk Hogan was once Sterling Golden. That name alone is outrageously queer.

Triple H was once a "Greenwich snob" who wrestled hog farmers and garbage men.

Kevin Nash was once OZ. As in "the Wizard of..." (He was also once mobile in the ring, but that's another story).

And Mr. America was once a 150 pound accountant.

So the moral of the story is: it's never too late.

Wait, are you saying those were all...BAD gimmicks? Blasphemy! I touched the Ringmaster's hand, and it was pretty great, I thought.

Have you seen his new gimmick the last few months? The more things change...

I actually loved that little touch. The "Ringmaster" name was pathetic, but the rest of the character itself wasn't really too bad. He was Ted DiBiase's hand-picked Million Dollar Champion, and a classic arrogant heel. If he'd just been "Steve Austin" with that same gimmick, he may've gone far and wrestling today might be completely different...

Give them three weeks and they'll put Goldberg in a yarmulka and have him pelting opponents with jars of geffilte fish...

I guess I'm in the minority of the IWC. That I totally hated Goldberg's booking in WCW. Sure it helped him but at the same time help destroy everyone else in the company... If somebody needs 90% of the roster fed to him to get over, he's not worth it.

Anyone notice him saying "I'm back" during his post-coital...I mean post-match celebration? I have a sneaking suspicion that he was the one lobbying for this character shift. I still would have gone with the gay cowboy though. Think of the merchandising potential.

If WWE's willing to completely and utterly sacrifice Rodney Mack (who they've tried to get over through hell or high water) for the greater cause of getting Goldberg over, then there may just be some hope yet.

I'm totally with you. I stopped watching WCW when he beat Raven for the US title after Raven had it for a day.

I thought the PPV was okay, some strangness at the end of both title matches, some matches that didn't click. But there was a couple of off the charts matches and the women match I'd put under the good category. -Americans v.
