Original Plan For Goldberg’s Undefeated Streak Ending In 1998

Former WCW booker Kevin Sullivan recently disclosed his initial vision for concluding Goldberg’s legendary undefeated streak.

Contrary to the eventual outcome at WCW Starrcade 1998, where Goldberg lost to Kevin Nash with interference from Scott Hall and a cattle prod, Sullivan shared his alternative plan in a WrestleZone interview:

“The day he got beat… my finish was, rather than a cattle prod and 12 people running down. I wanted Bill (Goldberg) to whip Kevin (Nash) into the corner, go for his charge, Kevin move out of the way, Bill (would) hit the post and come back out. Kevin gives him a big boot, gives him the powerbomb, and beats him 1-2-3.”

Sullivan explained his rationale, expressing a desire for Goldberg to lose cleanly after his consistent string of clean victories:

“Why I wanted that was because he had won clean all the time. I wanted him to lose clean.

It’s like when Mike Tyson went over and fought (Buster) Douglas, nobody thought Douglas had a chance. But Mike got knocked out.

It was a clean knockout. It wasn’t a referee’s decision or a split decision by the referee or two judges.”

Goldberg’s undefeated streak reached 173 wins before coming to an end at the hands of Kevin Nash at Starrcade 1998.

Prior to this historic defeat, Goldberg had already claimed the WCW United States Championship and WCW World Heavyweight Championship.
