Former WWE/WCW World Heavyweight Champion Goldberg never got to wrestle the one person he always wanted to.
Goldberg has had quite the career in professional wrestling. Make no mistake about it, he was the top star of World Championship Wrestling (WCW) at the peak of the Monday Night Wars.
While under contract with WCW between 1997 and 2001, Goldberg rose to fame in WCW with a lengthy undefeated streak in singles competition from 1997 to 1998, which was considered the longest winning streak in professional wrestling.
While under the WCW banner, he became WCW United States Champion and WCW World Heavyweight Champion.
He was also a one-time WCW World Tag Team Champion (with Bret Hart), making him along with Hart the fifth WCW Triple Crown winner.
He finally went to work for WWE Chairman Vince McMahon between 2003 and 2004 where he became a one-time World Heavyweight Champion in the latter.
After twelve years away from the company, he returned to WWE in 2016 and headlined Survivor Series against Brock Lesnar, and Fastlane against Kevin Owens where he won the WWE Universal Championship.
He lost the title to Lesnar at WrestleMania 34 last year in Orlando, Florida. He was last seen on WWE television the night after Mania on Raw.
Goldberg made an appearance at Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tennessee on Sunday for the NASCAR Cup race.
While he was there, the former WWE Universal Champion spoke to members of the media and during that scrum, he talked about how Steve Austin was a big influence on him.
Here is what he had to say:
"He was such a big influence through my rise through the ranks," Goldberg said, via The Augusta Free Press.
"I didn't copy anyone…but I'd like to have shared the ring with him. He's the one I wanted to have an angle with."
What are your thoughts on Goldberg always wanting to wrestle the former WWE champion and arguably, the biggest star that WWE Chairman Vince McMahon has ever created under the sports entertainment company’s banner?
