Goldberg’s WCW undefeated streak is often subjected to criticism, but it played a crucial role in the WWE Hall of Famer’s journey to the top. He went a ridiculous 173-0 in his streak, however it had to end at some point. Recently, while addressing criticisms from fans who believe WCW should have preserved Goldberg’s streak, Kevin Nash shared his thoughts on the subject.

During the latest episode of his podcast, “Kliq This,” two-time WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash delved into the controversial decision to end Goldberg’s undefeated streak in WCW. He explained that despite Goldberg’s immense popularity, there was a shift in audience sentiment, particularly in regions like the northeast where Goldberg began facing boos instead of cheers.

“Like if we’d go to the northeast they were booing Bill,” Nash said.

“It wasn’t like all of a sudden, it was like, ‘We have to beat Bill.’ It was like, ‘Bill’s starting to be the Yankees.’ Bill’s starting to beat the Yankees … nobody wanted the Patriots to beat the [1972] Dolphins f***in’ record.”


In case you need a refresher, Nash ended Goldberg’s legendary undefeated streak in the main event of WCW Starrcade 1998, however the match didn’t end without stirring some serious controversy. Unlike conventional clean pins, this victory was brought about by outside interference, as Goldberg fell victim to a cattle prod.

Nash’s victory over Goldberg raised questions about the legitimacy of the outcome and also sparked speculation about backstage dynamics. The decision to end Goldberg’s streak in this fashion is debated to this day, as evidenced by Nash still dropping new details about it on his podcast.
