Goldberg won 173 matches in a row before he was finally defeated. This impressive winning streak was thanks to WCW having a slew of enhancement talents for Goldberg, but it wasn’t planned.

While speaking to The Broken Skull Sessions, Goldberg explained how his streak in WCW was “organic.” They didn’t have any plan for how long it would last. They definitely didn’t know how much of an impact it would have on the entire business.

“The streak was organic. My timing was organic. No one had a plan. They just kinda shot from the hip and fed me people at a time when saciating people’s desires was the cool thing to do. I think they just gave the people what they wanted because they saw how it kinda — there was a glimmer of it in the beginning and people kinda were frenzied because it wasn’t normal by the time they thought they figured out what was going on it was over and it was short and powerful and they wanted more.”

Goldberg said he wanted people to equate what he was doing to feeding people to the lions. That was the impression he gave out without any issues for a long time. His streak didn’t last forever, but fans will never forget it either.
