Goldberg is undoubtedly one of the most devastating wrestlers of all time. He started his career in WWE in the year 2003. The Hall of Famer has also been a part of WCW Monday Nitro since 1997. However, he didn’t appear in the WWE ring between 2004 and 2016.

How many wins did Goldberg actually have?

Before stepping foot in WWE, Goldberg was WCW Champion. “Da Man” had an incredible run as the WCW Champion by defeating the legendary Hulk Hogan for the championship in front of 60,000 people. He has an unprecedented record of 173 victories to 0 defeats as the WCW titleholder. He destroyed everyone in his WCW career who stood in his way. Only a few men in the WCW Nitro, such as Scott Steiner, Booker T, Bret Hart, and Kevin Nash, are the one who could crown over the giant man Goldberg.

In his WWE career, to this day, The Hall of Famer has won overall 37 matches. These wins include six games of tag-team partnership with other wrestlers such as Shawn Michaels, Booker T, Randy Orton, and Rob Van Dam.

Who defeated Goldberg’s streak?

Goldberg’s undefeated WCW title holder streak run ended at the hands of Diesel, aka Kevin Nash. In the main event of Starrcade 1998, Kevin Nash and Goldberg collided in a No Disqualification Match for the WCW World Heavyweight title. Diesel played dirty by getting help from Disco Inferno, Bam Bam Bigelow, and Scott Hall.

Scott Hall shocked Goldberg with a taser gun. Kevin Nash took the opportunity to hit a Jackknife Powerbomb, which was enough to end Goldberg’s undefeated streak. Perhaps it was the only “credible” way for Goldberg to be defeated by Nash.
