Goldberg proved that the company was capable of introducing a new star and finding top-level success.


WCW saw Goldberg becoming the face of the company in 1998 and helping draw more money within a year of his debut. The undefeated streak made Goldberg an attraction unlike anyone else in the industry, but there were many weak moments that limited his long-term success. WCW fell apart during Goldberg’s run partially due to ineffective booking moments. The following memories show when WCW dropped the ball with Goldberg or did right by him.


10. Ending the Streak with Scott Hall's Caddle Prod

Goldberg was unhappy about Kevin Nash ending the undefeated streak due to the poor booking around it. Nash had a lot of momentum as a fan favorite following the success of the Wolfpac leading the face version of the New World Order.


Scott Hall interfered in the match to stun Goldberg with a cattle prod on behalf of Nash to cause the end of the streak. The controversial finish was meant to protect Goldberg, but it just made him look silly and WCW fell lower in the pecking order afterward.
