In fact, the WWE Hall of Famer is often regarded to be the inventor of the iconic Spear move. After the closure of World Championship Wrestling, he signed with WWE in 2003 but departed from the company next year.

Goldberg returned to WWE in 2016 and has been making sporadic appearances since then. He was the Superstar who had pinned The Fiend Bray Wyatt. Over the course of his run with the company, in addition to being a Hall of Famer. he has won the World Heavyweight Championship once and the Universal Championship twice.

One of the events where Goldberg has consistently appeared are the ones that take place in Saudi Arabia. He faced the Universal Champion Roman Reigns in the opening match of the event. He gave a tough fight to the Tribal Chief, but in the end Reigns emerged victorious – in what could be the Hall of Famer’s final match.

There is no doubt that he has been one of the biggest Superstars. Clearly, he himself thinks so and has gone as far as comparing himself to Mike Tyson. While talking to Dr. Beau Hightower he mentioned, “I was the Mike Tyson of wrestling. My goal was to be something completely different. Black tights, black shoes, I didn’t fricking talk for six months. I just squished motherf***ckers.”
