It happened again...

 

DOLPH ZIGGLER VS. KOFI KINGSTON

You’re missing one from that list.

They had a singles match on Superstars in September 2012.

Goldberg is still a massive star. I just can’t comprehend him losing AGAIN.

I’m afraid we are going to see a finish similar like this next week:

Goldberg ‘wins’ by DQ

Fiend retains

Goldberg gets his shit in

Fiends gets the last laugh with the Mandible

Damn! Missed that one, thanks. Dolph won it as well which means they’re actually 29-29 against each other rather than Kofi being in the lead.

Poor Nakamura. Moved to the States to doss off and surf and they end up throwing him into a fucking piano, smashing the back of his head in. That looked ridiculously dangerous. I’m flabbergasted no-one thought to gimmick the piano.

I say it every time but Goldberg oozes charisma and shits over the majority (all?) of the roster. Every time he shows up he puts today's talent to shame. I'm not sure how they can recreate what he has or whether I'm just nostalgic...

He's a product of a totally different era and process. Listen to him on the podcast with Austin and he was clearly a driven athlete who knew the WCW stars from training in Georgia but he didn't regard 'the business' with any reverence. He got recommended, then trained his ass off, then got put on TV with journeymen and got directed hard by the higher ups with what he was and wasn't supposed to do. Watch those first few matches before the Streak was a thing, and you can see it even then, he carries himself like a take-no-prisoners ass kicker. It could be the real sports background, or coming up among politically-minded vets focused on making money, or maybe he genuinely had/has something you can't teach. But yeah, the man has it.

I swear half of it is down to Goldberg not really giving a fuck about pro-wrestling.

Practically everyone on the current roster grew up a fan, was almost certainly an Observer subscriber, and is just happy to be there. As such, just being featured on Raw or Smackdown is the greatest moment of their life and they're willing to do whatever is asked of them. Whether it's dropping themselves on their head a thousand times or delivering shitty dialogue that makes them sound possessed by aliens, it's an instant, "OK, boss," no matter what. By contrast, Goldberg is a man who knows his worth, knows how little he needs to do to have a great match, knows how shit these promos read and isn't going to allow himself to look a prick. There's a lot to be said for Goldberg turning around with a smile and Spearing The Fiend on first encounter, whilst Seth Rollins literally sat in the corner screaming in fear. Get some self-respect and tell them this isn't going to work for you, brother!

I know it goes against Real Fan~! mentality but they need to hire more big, athletic guys that have never seen a pro-wrestling match in their life. They're the stars of the future.

EDIT: Meltz is reporting that the planned Wyatt vs. Roman match for Wrestlemania has changed! Could it be?!

Poor Luna. Overlooked in the HoF ballot again.... 

She went in last year, Legacy wing.

Such a stupid, stupid spot, for a match that no one will remember this time next week. There are arguments to be made for the NJPW style being worse for your body than WWE's, but they'd never have him crack his head on a piano.

to quote the great Vince Russo, "...the marks have made it to the ring".

Never leave the MMA section again.

Maybe he means a different Vince Russo? One of them plays the washboard in a band called The Appleseed Collective.
