Goldberg Announced As First WWE Hall Of Fame 2018 Inductee

Share

"We are honored to have Goldberg take his rightful place in the WWE Hall of Fame".

Goldberg, 51, began his professional wrestling career with WCW in 1996. He began his career with an unbelievable 173-match undefeated streak and served as one of the promotion's most recognizable stars during its ratings battle with WWE, since dubbed the "Monday Night Wars". After some high profile feuds with The Rock and Triple H upon joining the company in 2003, Goldberg left the company on a sour note at the same time Brock Lesnar did, culminating in a memorable-for-all-the-wrong-reasons shitshow match at WrestleMania XX. Goldberg's return completely changed his relationship with WWE, and he commented on both sides having a change of heart. After competing in the 2017 Royal Rumble, Goldberg destroyed Kevin Owens in 21 seconds to become the new Universal Champion at Fastlane in March.

Fans didn't have long to wait until they saw their former hero back in the ring, for Goldberg appeared on Raw later that month to set up a Survivor Series showdown with old rival Brock Lesnar.

Goldberg defeated Hollywood Hogan for the WCW world heavyweight championship during an episode of Nitro on July 6, 1998, in front of 40,000 at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.

During his gap in professional wrestling, Goldbeg stayed in the public eye as an actor, television host and mixed martial arts commentator.

WrestleMania season is upon us, and that means that several Hall of Fame announcements will be made over the next few weeks. He also continued acting, a pursuit he had started while with WCW in the 90s, with guest appearances on several TV shows and roles in a number of movies and voice roles in several video games.
