Goldberg’s name is synonymous with the Spear. Throughout his entire undefeated streak and beyond, the two-time WWE Universal Champion would tear through everyone he faced with a Spear, and Graham “GSM” Matthews of Bleacher Report asked the WCW legend about his favourite Spear of all time.
“From the angle to his sell, it’s all about how the people sell it. I can hurt people every single time with it and it doesn’t look nearly as bad as when they oversell it like a Rock or a Dolph or a Brad Armstrong. Guys have gone above and beyond to make it look devastating. There’s a lot of them that I enjoyed doing. The one against Sting when I leapfrogged and turned and Speared him.”
While the Sting Spear was up there, Goldberg mentioned the one “perfect” Spear.
“There’s a lot of good ones, but I think that one with Christian was pretty much perfect.”
Well, it may be Goldberg’s favourite, but WWE only lists Christian as #2 on the list of the Hall of Famer’s most devastating Spears.
Meanwhile, it looks like we’re heading for a Spear vs Spear match between Goldberg and Roman Reigns, which the Hall of Famer says “needs” to happen.
“If the Roman Reigns match isn’t the match at the top of my priority list, then I wouldn’t be Goldberg. That’s a match that needs to happen. It’s a match that’s needed to happen for a very long period of time. I wish I would’ve been able to have that match ten years ago.”
