WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash has opened up about the decision for him to be the one to end WCW star Goldberg’s legendary streak.
Goldberg built up a career in WCW storming over opponents, and building an undefeated streak the like of which was unheard of in wrestling. The former NFL star ran roughshod over the competition, ultimately becoming WCW World Heavyweight Champion when he defeated Hollywood Hogan on Nitro in July 1998.
But as with all things in wrestling, all good things must come to an end and for Goldberg, it did against Kevin Nash just five months later at Starrcade.
Speaking on his Kliq This podcast, Kevin Nash discussed being the one to end his streak and dispelled the myth that he was the one to book his own major victory:
“Well, I don’t know. I mean, I don’t know why it was me. I mean, you would think at one point it was because I was booking, but that’s been proven false.”
“I think it’s the fact that he knew that at 63 years old as I am right now that I would look exactly like Ed Harris on Westworld. But God I’ve got some f*cking lines on my face. No, I just put it this way If Bill didn’t want me to powerbomb him he would have just f*cking dead-sacked my ass.”
“That son of a b*tch if you’ve ever seen me – ever watch that powerbomb he took that thing like a pro man. Yeah, I mean, he did. So at this point in my life, I have nothing but love for Bill.”
