Goldberg had a rocket strapped to his back in WCW which shot him to the top of the roster. His undefeated streak was legendary, but also not planned.
While speaking to Steve Austin on the Broken Skull Sessions, Goldberg revealed how Hulk Hogan handled the night that he lost the WCW World Title to him. It’s unclear if certain people were upset at Goldberg’s sudden push. Apparently, Hogan just wanted to call it in the ring.
“I go into the room beforehand and I had to go through Hall first and he and I have never gotten along. I wanted to eat him more than anybody in the business. Then I had to go with Hogan and I’m scared sh*tless. I don’t know what’s going on. I just do whatever people tell me to do anyway and here I got Hogan.”
“I go in and say, ‘What are we doing?’ And he goes, ‘We’ll call it in the ring’ — you’re kidding me right?! So then we go [in the match] and lock up and [he’s got] Icy Hot all over him everywhere — hell yeah — I couldn’t see the whole freaking match. It is what it is, I deserved it — it’s all good.”
It’s unclear whether Hulk Hogan meant to spread Icy Hot all over Goldberg’s face, but it happened. They also apparently called the famous match on the spot.
