I was never a Goldberg fan until he entered WWE & beat Triple H for the belt. This set, match wise, is probably WWE's best release in quite sometime over one wrestler. It has every match you could want from one wrestler, i'll diffently pick this up on relase day.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very AWESOME, but!... there are big flaws..., October 10, 2013
I've been a wrestling fan for a very long time. I dont often post reviews, but I do only when I feel I must. This is one of those times, especially since this involves one of the best athletes to ever step foot into that ring. GOLDBERG! We all remember that chant that went along with his entrance, almost like summoning a gladiator to the arena as he made his way from the back to the stage, only to stand in the fire every time and scare the living piss out of each opponent.
WWE did what you could say, an okay job with this. But only okay.

The matches they selected are pretty decent, however there were plenty of Nitro taping's where he had much better matches than what you see on this disc, however, I think they saved that for the "Best of Nitro" disc. It includes his first and second matches ever in the WCW and has a few pretty awesome matches such as Sting, DDP (Which were the best ever) and a few good matches he had in WWE (The Elimination Chamber match was probably the only highlight during that stint). I'm glad they chose NOT to have the stupid Vince Russo angle in this disc, and kept it about his best matches (or at least what WWE considers his best)

There is a commentator ranting about certain areas of his career on this, as well as it showing some pretty good highlight reels during those dubs, that have not been seen in years! Just wish those matches were on here!!!

~~~~~~But here are my true issues with this release~~~~~~

First, I'd like to let everyone know that I waited years for something Goldberg related to come out after he left WWE. When I first heard this was coming out, I let all my wrestling buddies know! Now, I'm not so sure any of that was a good idea. Worth the wait? Just read and find out for yourself.

1. The cover. Terrible cover choice. For one, its a WWE photo when it should have been a WCW picture they used instead. I think the best photo they could have used is him standing in the sparks at the stage during his entrance with the WCW Heavyweight belt on. (which always looked best on him!) Instead they just took a random generic photo of him standing in the corner of the ring about to spear the living hell out of HHH? I think.

It only gets worse from here, so be prepared. If you have not bought this yet, and you were around back in the day to watch this stuff on TV, then you will be very disappointed by the next few things I say.

2. They used the Jim Johnston version of his music from his WWE days, in ALL of the WCW footage. Its all be HEAVILY edited to exclude the original theme "Invasion" by Christian Poulet. Its a huge upset because there is something about that original theme that was just much better than Jim's version. Dont get me wrong, Jim Johnston has made some of the best themes of all time, and his rendition of "Invasion" was good for what it was, but it was NOT the theme the fans remember best. But it doesn't stop there with the heavy editing. Because of the new dub on the audio track that the editors had to do, they took out all the original camera audio as well. The camera's that would be up close in Bill's face would pick up all his explosive screams as he did his punch kick combos in succession with the pyro. So now, all you see is him "screaming" but you dont hear anything. Just that annoying Jim version of "Invasion". My best guess is that WWE does not own the rights to the original "Invasion" and didn't want to pay up a very small licensing fee to use it in this release. Its a shame because licensing fees are usually not that expensive, especially for a $2billion dollar company. The fans (*myself and many others) would have appreciated this, but they instead coped out, like usual.

3. Michael Buffer has been removed from all entrance announcements. This was a signature WCW thing that they did with big matches. I have no idea why they did this. He has a great relationship with WWE and has even worked for them. Yet they removed ALL of his dubs. WTH WWE?!

4. Pyro used to be super loud and full of bass, now it sounds like a silly firecracker. I remember watching the DDP vs. Goldberg match at Halloween Havoc 1998 on ppv. I even have seen the same video on YouTube, so I know I'm not getting old or crazy. But I remember almost all of his entrances with the sparks had a deep **BOOM** that went along with them as they turned on. Yet again, WWE felt the need to edit the hell out of this as well! This is just ridiculous and really angers the piss out of me. There was no reason to do this and it takes away from that experience of watching Goldberg do his thing on that stage. So now all you will hear when you watch this is a tiny little *spak* sound as they turn on. The rest of the pyro is also very loud and boomy, but they just turned that down by about 98% I dont get it, and it really was not necessary. Nobody is going to go blowing their sound system over this, in fact, thats the part when I would have turned it WAY up!

5. The most important reason I gave this 3 stars here on Amazon is one thing. They didn't actually get Goldberg to do any type of interview for this. They didnt even use archival footage from the WCW days. I just bought the HHH "Thy Kingdom Come" last week and they just sit him down on a sofa, probably at his house and literally squeeze info out of him. But they couldn't get Goldberg for 1 hour to do a little interview for this release. They guy is pretty made as far as money goes, and he surely loves his fans. He more than likely would have done this for little pay, or even free! That would have sent this over the top and the rest of the fatal flaws in this disc probably wouldn't have mattered that much. But again, they chose the cheap and easy way out of this release. Shame... a real shame.

Goldberg was the best thing that happened to WCW, and he even managed to kick ass in a super competitive WWE. The fans still chant his name to this day. Yet WWE took the cheap and easy route and made this nearly painful to watch, for someone that was, and still is as big as Goldberg. They dont cheap out on their 'superstars' such as Rock, Stone Cold, and HHH. But they cheap out real quick when its a WCW guy. Even to as far as make his entrance less cool. Shame on you WWE. This will be my last purchase from them for quite some time for sure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tons of matches, February 18, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This DVD has a lot of Goldberg's matches, many of which were considered some of his best in his time with WCW and WWE and versus a lot of the top names the industry has ever created. There are other reviewers that have listed the matches so I will leave you to read those on your own.

Does it have every one of his matches that could be considered good? No. If they made a DVD on "The Streak" it could be a 3-4 disc special alone...but it has a lot of the ones I remember and care to watch again.

For me, having not had cable/dish during his WWE run, I will appreciate seeing his WWE matches, most of them for the first time. Watching the old WCW matches was a fun and nostalgic trip down memory lane back to the days of wrestling we will probably never see again.

Overall, the biggest selling point of this DVD is that is is a 5 star purchase if you are a Goldberg fan, based on how little there is in terms of DVDs featuring him at all anymore, let alone a collection of arguably his best matches. Given that WCW has been defunct for ages now and Goldberg was never really one of WWE's true stars, for them to do this at all is a treat for anyone who loved watching Goldberg during his WCW heyday.

Though I would have loved to have seen Goldberg talk about and reminisce a bit about his experiences back then and his run in WCW, he has been adamant about staying away from WWE and thus it doesn't surprise me they were unable to get him to sit down for something like this. Perhaps if that day ever comes and he returns to the WWE under some kind of contract, we may get another DVD with these features intact. For now, this DVD is a satisfying if imperfect collection that is basically the only one of it's kind out there right now.

Great video of my favorite wrestling star.
Like to see more of him in movies because I have a hunch that he's got some real acting talent. After all, that is one of the things that wrestling stars are really about beside the tremendous physical demands.

4.0 out of 5 stars WHO'S NEXT!, October 28, 2013
By 
D.P. (California) - See all my reviews
(VINE VOICE)   
World Championship Wrestling had different elements of their presentation that appealed to different viewers from the Nitro Girls performing to the fast paced crusierweight action to the dominance of the New World Order amongst other things as well but there was one name that started in late 1997 going all the way to early 2001 that would become the most dominate name in that company with other names & phrases being attached to him such as "The Man" & "The Streak" only for him to be resurrected in WWE for a controversial year that to this day draws mixed reactions & still has his name chanted or mentioned to this day whenever anyone begins a noticeable undefeated streak of their own...that name is Goldberg & this is a match anthology that spans his over 3 year career in WCW along with one year in WWE. Now it should be noted that Goldberg didn't participate in this presentation (which is a story in itself for another time) so you don't hear from him or any of his past opponents or peers (and seeing how many of them have buried him in one way or another, that's a good thing) so it's pretty much a no frills match set.

Matches Include:
vs. Hugh Morrus - This was the beginning of "The Streak" from the end result of the match, the impressive debut performance including showcasing his power against Hugh Morris who isn't a small man himself, and the mysterious aura surrounding him to not speaking to Gene Okerland afterwords & even "Professor" Mike Tenay having no information on Goldberg's past during commentary.
"WCW Monday Nitro" Sept. '97
[Very Best Of WCW Monday Nitro Vol. 2]

vs. The Barbarian - Goldberg's second match started out with stalemates early before Goldberg was able to take control with the body scissors takeover & second top clothesline & a powerful dropkick while also taking some punishment such as the second rope superplex but was just like the previous week where he left another impression against another big man.
"WCW Monday Nitro" Sept. '97

vs. Steve McMichael - Both men had so much heat towards each other over the events from the past two PPV's that they met in the isleway with Goldberg carrying Mongo to the ring & continued brawling both in & out of the ring with Goldberg catching Mongo coming off the top to take control with a scissored leg stretch & spear takedown before setting up a table on the outside that Mongo did go through & effected him for the rest of the match. This wasn't much past Goldberg's first major PPV & victory over a credible name in a former U.S. Champion & Horsemen member.
WCW Starrcade '97

vs. WCW United States Champion Raven - Raven took a different approach here than usual as he went right after Goldberg attempting to block him into a corner & even throwing a dropkick before Goldberg quickly recovered tossing Raven into the outside guardrail various times before Raven attempted to use a chair & The Flock but that wouldn't stop Goldberg causing Raven to try to run away only for the fans to throw him back resulting in what went down as "75-0."
"WCW Monday Nitro" Apr. '98
[Very Best Of WCW Monday Nitro Vol. 2]

WCW United States Championship Match vs. Scott Hall - Hogan laid down the gauntlet here in that Goldberg had to Hall to get his title shot against Hogan later in the night. Hall was easily shoved down in the early moments & kept having his offense countered for Goldberg to keep taking him down only to finally get an advantage with Goldberg due to a mistimed move with Hall delivering blows to the back of the head & backdrop suplex but Goldberg was able to shrug off Hall's punches, kept taking him down with armdrags, and even blocked the Outsiders Edge on his way to jackhammering & spearing his way to his World Title shot later that night.
"WCW Monday Nitro" July '98
[Legends Of Wrestling: Heatseekers]

vs. WCW Champion Hollywood Hogan - Goldberg started out with a side headlock followed by powering Hogan down with moves like a shoulder block & test of strength causing Hogan to resort to tactics like using his weightbelt & a low blow then showcasing his own strength with a clothesline that took Goldberg down before taking the match to the outside using the guardrail & steel chair but Goldberg wouldn't be denied as he kept rolling out of the way when Hogan went to drop his elbows & even kicked out of his trademark moves resulting in some assistance coming out for Hogan but ultimately backfiring on him. This was the match that many consider the apex of WCW in the "Monday Night Wars" as this was the match that definitely cemented Goldberg as not only the new top man in the company & his spot as a memorable name in wrestling.
"WCW Monday Nitro" July '98
[Very Best Of WCW Monday Nitro; History Of The World Heavyweight Championship; Monday Night War]

WCW Championship Match vs. Curt Hennig - This was the first match where it wasn't just business but also personal as Curt Hennig had been calling out Goldberg for months which was showcased as he was able to run through Hennig & tossed him around in the opening seconds along with showcasing his power pressing Hennig into a powerslam causing Hennig to attempt the strategy of working over his legs giving him control including applying the Hennig-plex before he did something that you've rarely seen from Hennig's opponents.
WCW/nWo Bash At The Beach '98

WCW Championship Match vs. Sting - Dallas Page was on commentary as he was set to face the champion at Halloween Havoc as both men started off intense with Goldberg delivering a snap slam & Sting responding with a tree of woe & suplex right off the bat before they traded momentum with Sting doing a dropkick but Goldberg got right back up followed by a tombstone piledriver that he openly showed effects from causing Sting to go on the heavy offense with repeated Stinger splashes & eventually applying the Scorpion Deathlock. This was a quality "dream match" between both men with the only thing negative to say is what happened towards the end.
"WCW Monday Nitro" Sept. '98
[Blu-Ray version of Very Best Of WCW Monday Nitro Vol. 2]

WCW Championship Match vs. Diamond Dallas Page - This match started off very aggressive with Goldberg shoving Page into the corner with Page responding with an armdrag before both men locked up with such intensity that they ended up pushing each other to the outside as they traded momentum back & forth in the ring from DDP's leg sweep takedowns to Goldberg applying the cross armbreaker with DDP responding in a jaw breaker while Goldberg came back shoving him to the floor during an attempt at the Diamond Cutter. DDP attempted to ground him with a front facelock only for Goldberg to use his power for various slams with DDP responding with a head scissors takedown & flying clothesline while also avoiding the spear causing Goldberg to hurt his shoulder but still fought with one arm including a slam & the spear as they continued to trade counters from the Jackhammer into the Diamond Cutter & a suplex into the Jackhammer. This was possibly Goldberg's best match in WCW strictly from an in-ring wrestling standpoint as DDP brought out a more physical side of Goldberg in the ring than anyone before him to the point where this match was named Match Of The Year by WCW Magazine that year.
WCW/nWo Halloween Havoc '98
[Rise & Fall Of WCW]

WCW Championship Match vs. Giant - This was a very quick encounter that served the purpose of him taking the best that Giant could throw at him before showcasing his dominance against a man bigger than himself going into his Starrcade match as the aftermath was more relevant here in not only the showdown with Nash but also someone else who made it clear that they wanted Goldberg.
"WCW Monday Nitro" Nov. '98

WCW Championship/No Disqualification Match vs. Kevin Nash - Goldberg's streak was at 173-0 going into this match with both men taking & countering each others offense causing them to go outside of their comfort zones like going for submissions with Goldberg's anklelock & Nash's cross armbreaker before the hits got more impactful like a punch that knocked Nash down, Nash powering Goldberg down with a clothesline, Goldberg with a spinning neckbreaker & later spinning dropkick along with a snap slam, and even Nash using the low blow. For two guys who have been know to be very limited in the ring, they gave a good "big man" power match with the only negative being the chaotic ending...which is typical of the nWo.
Starrcade '98
[nWo: The Revolution; Starrcade: The Essential Collection; nWo: Back In Black]

vs. Ric Flair - Hollywood Hogan & Kevin Nash was on commentary for this match as Flair kept trying to get some offense in against Goldberg to no avail as he was literally "running into a brick wall" & constantly being overpowered resulting in Flair resorting to using dirty tactics often from going to the eyes to going low & using the ring environment around him to his advantage. This was a different type of match for Goldberg as he faced Flair who resorted to his ways of being "dirtiest player in the game" that he never encountered before.
"WCW Monday Nitro" Mar. '99

vs. WCW Champion Ric Flair vs. Hollywood Hogan vs. Diamond Dallas Page - This was the main event of the first "new" Nitro that was complete with a fresh new look & WCW logo while Kevin Nash was also on commentary for this match as it was under Fatal Four Way rules where all four men were legal at the same time under no disqualification & no count out rules resulting in different scenarios throughout the match such as each man interacting with the other 3 participants at one point, two separate matches going on at one time with one inside the ring & the other outside of the ring from the isleway to the announce table, and the constant attempts to breaking & steal pins. This was a fun match.
"WCW Monday Nitro" Apr. '99

vs. Kevin Nash - The rematch from Starrcade here with starting out in control with his knee drives & boot in the corner before Ms. Elizabeth caused a distraction allowing Nash to use dirty tactics as well as whipping him in the corners & dropping weight across his neck but Goldberg was able to to take Nash down with a shoulderblock followed by more power moves such as the takeover suplex before a mistiming by Goldberg allowed Nash to get assistance from Lex Luger & a steel chair causing Goldberg to use "low" tactics of his own going against both men. This wasn't the quality of the Starrcade match more than it was about Goldberg's revenge against the men who helped screw him out of his championship.
WCW Spring Stampede '99

vs. Diamond Dallas Page - A rematch from their Halloween Havoc match a year earlier except under different circumstances as DDP was no longer a fan favorite & used cheating tactics more often as seen by the referee finding various weapons on DDP before the match began as Goldberg kept overpowering DDP down & out of the ring briefly brawling on the outside before he was able to shrug off the Diamond Cutter into a snap powerslam causing DDP to resort to dirty tactics on Goldberg's throat & eyes while also using an object behind the referee's back attempting to keep him grounded with moves like the DDT & Goldberg's own spear. They had a completely different match than their Havoc match but still good for the story they were telling.
WCW Fall Brawl Sept. '99

vs. WCW United States Champion Sid Vicious - Sid Vicious was undefeated in WCW since his return months earlier just like how Goldberg was in WCW, minus his Starrcade loss, leading to this battle of who would be the "Millennium Man" of WCW with the fight starting earlier in the night with Goldberg busting Sid open backstage while Scott Hall & Kevin Nash would jump Goldberg in the isleway during his entrance. Both men started brawling on the outside with Sid once again being busted open due to Goldberg using the steps & punches directly to the head with Sid fighting back taking Goldberg down with a big boot & keeping him down with the camel clutch only for Goldberg to power out & continue to pound on the cut as Sid started to show the effects of the blood loss by constantly getting knocked down only to get right back up & fight back before it got to the point where he couldn't even stand. This was one of those matches that played out well with the story they were telling in regards to Sid fighting until he couldn't anymore but it also made this match disappointing quality wise because it was build up as two monsters clashing which he didn't really get.
WCW Halloween Havoc '99

vs. Sting - Just a couple of notes here but Sting was originally suppose to defend his WCW Championship against Hulk Hogan earlier in the night only for Hogan to lay down & lose without a fight causing Sting to issue an open challenge for later which Goldberg accepted due to his controversial win earlier in the night & despite the confusion by the announcers throughout his entire match, this was a non-title match in regards to either man's title. Goldberg came out beating on Sting with punches while tossing him into the guardrail & bouncing his head on the announce table before Sting was able to take advantage of Goldberg missing the spear with various splashes in the corner & off the top rope along with hitting Goldberg with his own spear. This match wasn't much as it was less than 5 minutes but good for what it was.
WCW Halloween Havoc '99

"I Quit" Match vs. Sid Vicious - Both men started out trading fist taking the brawl to the outside before Sid was able to get an advantage in the ring working over Goldberg's throat with rope choke & chokeslams before Goldberg was able to counter with the cross armbreaker & short clotheslines while pounding him in the corner & going for the cobra clutch submission. While this was more of an actual match than their previous encounter, it was too short & ended before it really had the chance to get started.
WCW Mayhem '99

No Disqualification Match vs. Scott Steiner - Steiner came into this match wearing a face mask due to an injury weeks earlier with Goldberg starting off showcasing his power taking down Steiner with shoulderblocks & gorilla press into a powerslam before Steiner took back control with his own powerful clothesline taking Goldberg down as both men traded momentum with both men delievering suplexes with Goldberg delievering ground & pound strikes while Steiner delivered a cutter of his own. Goldberg continued to showcase his power such as Goldberg powering out of a piledriver into an over the shoulder powerslam while Steiner resorted to other tactics taking advantage of the No DQ stipulation using the steel chair & ringside steps & table to his advantage along with his trademark pipe along with Madajah & Vince Russo getting involved with his baseball bat. This started out as WCW's version of "King Kong vs. Godzilla" in it being two powerhouses facing off one on one but turned into "Goldberg vs. The World" as he had to not only fight off Steiner but also outside distractions & every weapon they could get their hands on.
WCW Fall Brawl '00

vs. Kronik - Goldberg had a bounty put on his head with Kronik coming collect in his match where Goldberg had to defeat both members of the team to win the match while Goldberg came into the match only being medically cleared moments earlier due to a head injury he suffered earlier in the week. Kronik resorted to double teaming both in & out of the ring focusing on the head with moves like the DDT & chokeslam while Goldberg attempted to divide & conquer knocking one to the outside while taking care of the other using his spear & objects brought into the ring like a table in a match that was pretty short & sweet.
WCW Halloween Havoc '00

No Disqualification Match w/Dewayne Bruce vs. Totally Buff - It was around this time that Goldberg had to top his previous undefeated streak to gain a World Title match or else he would be fired after his first loss leading up to this match where Lex Luger was determined to end the streak & had Buff Bagwell as his partner against Goldberg & the main who trained him at the WCW Power Plant (and more infamous for Batista's comments about him) in Dewayne "Sarge" Bruce (a.k.a. Sgt. Buddy Lee Parker) who was coming into the match with his arm in a cast. This was your basic tag team match as Goldberg was very dominate leading to Totally Buff singling out Bruce & heavily working over Sarge with double teaming & keeping him down while also trying to take advantage of the No DQ stipulation with a chair along with something else that Goldberg didn't see coming...literally.
WCW Sin '01

vs. The Rock - Goldberg's WWE in-ring debut here started with dueling chants from the crowd as Rock kept getting knocked out of the ring before both Rock & Goldberg tried to show up each other here as Goldberg gave a Rock Bottom while Rock delivered a spear. Rock also resorted to dirty tactics to gain control & took advantage of Goldberg's spear being miscalculated resulting in him fight with only one arm while the crowd began to turn on him as time went on. This was as good as Rock was his usual entertaining self while you got as much as you could from Goldberg.
Backlash '03
[Top 50 Finishing Moves]

Steel Cage Match vs. Christian - Christian came into this match with the chair that had previously been used by The Rock against Goldberg & used it in an attempt to keep him down while Goldberg used the cage to punish him throughout the match to the point where Christian was busted open. This match only served the purpose to show the aggressive side of Goldberg as a result of everything Christian had put him through for weeks.
"RAW" May '03

vs. Chris Jericho - The confrontations between them had only occurred over the previous weeks but the tension between these two dated back to WCW 5 years earlier as Jericho kept trying to hit & move against Goldberg only to keep getting caught & overpowered to the point where Jericho attempted to use the referee as a shield before he was able to take advantage of the Goldberg's mistiming attacking the hurt shoulder with wrestling moves like armbar takedowns or using the environment around him along with other tactics such as various dropkicks from different positions & a Lionsault that landed him on Goldberg's head to the point where it hurt himself to deliver the spear later on. Jericho did all he could here with Goldberg's limited ability to the point where the crowd saw it & kept cheering him despite all of the heel tactics that he did throughout the match.
Badd Blood '03

Elimination Chamber Match vs. World Champion Triple H vs. Shawn Michaels vs. Kevin Nash vs. Randy Orton vs. Chris Jericho - This was suppose to be Goldberg vs. Triple H however Triple H suffered a groaning injury so it was turned into a Chamber match. This was a match that had multiple stories being told such as Randy Orton protecting Triple H's championship, Kevin Nash going for revenge against Chris Jericho for his recent haircut, Shawn Michaels ultimately showing his best friend Nash that it's every man for himself, Nash doing heavy damage before walking out of what would be his last WWE match, and Goldberg being a dominate monster such as taking Chris Jericho through one of the pods. This was one of those matches where you have to understand the story they're telling as Goldberg just wasn't getting over as hoped in WWE (weather that's WWE's creative or Goldberg's own fault is another debate for another time) so this was booked to have Goldberg return to his old WCW dominate monster character to get him over...again, a match where you have to understand what they're doing to value it.
SummerSlam '03
[Satan's Prison: Elimination Chamber Anthology]

vs. World Champion Triple H - "Title vs. Career" was the tagline here in that Goldberg had to win the World Championship or else he would retire while Triple H lost his champions' advantage as he could lose the title by disqualification or countout. Goldberg started out in control with high impact offense such as a press slam & high backbody drop & twisting front facelock before Triple H was able to block the spear with a high knee & focused on taking out Goldberg's legs with a chop block & figure four as both men traded momentum & continued to use whatever they could to their advantage such as Goldberg using the steel steps to make him bleed while Triple H used dirty tactics like a low blow & his trademark sledgehammer resulting in what was a competitive match between both men.
Unforgiven '03

vs. Mark Henry - This was a rare time in WWE that Goldberg met someone who could match & maybe even surpass him when it comes to strength alone as Henry was very dominate here overpowering him with slams & body presses as Goldberg couldn't knock him down or slam him & even blocked an attempt at the jackhammer causing Goldberg to attempt to use a different strategy taking down Henry & going for a submission before finally being able to match power for power but the bigger story here wasn't the fact that Goldberg was finally able to use the spear but who was the unexpected person to be on the receiving end of it.
"RAW" Oct. '03

vs. Batista - This was pretty short & sweet as it was all about Batista softening up Goldberg for Triple H at Survivor Series as he heavily worked over the ankle he injured weeks earlier using whatever parts of the ring as Goldberg already came to the ring limping but took such as beating that he had to use the ring ropes to hold himself up.
"RAW" Nov. '03

World Championship Match vs. Triple H - Goldberg came into this match with his lower leg & ankle heavily taped as a result of the bounty put out on him but was able to catch Triple H with a spear & knocked Ric Flair out of the ring before the match started as he continued to bring the fight throwing Triple H into the steps multiple times & dropping him on the barricade before he started to feel the effects of his injured ankle leaving an opening for Triple H to take advantage such as a chairshot to the ankle along with various strikes & stretches while Flair would attack whenever the referee wasn't looking taking away Goldberg's power advantage as he couldn't handle the pressure on his ankle as Triple H would continue to use whatever he could such as weapons & his own Evolution teammates only for Goldberg to use it all against him. This wasn't as competitive as their previous Unforgiven match but told a better story here as far as focusing on Goldberg's ankle.
Survivor Series '03

w/Special Referee Steve Austin vs. Brock Lesnar - This was one of the most unique matches in not only WrestleMania history but in the history of the company as I believe this is the first time that both wrestlers were leaving the company after the match. With the news leaking just a few weeks prior, the NYC crowd let them have it non-stop with the chants of "You Sold Out" while also singing "Hey, Hey, Hey...GOODBYE!" along with Austin getting the most cheers to the point where he had to smurk at that. Both men kept having stalemates & stalling for around the first 5 minutes which only had the crowd chanting even more like "This Match Sucks!" Both men were able to hit their trademark finishers only to kick out & question Austin about the count before the eventual finish but this would have gone down as one of the most disappointing matches in history as it didn't live up to the hype & neither man really giving a strong showing on the way out.
As a side note, they didn't show the aftermath between not only Austin & Lesnar but Austin & Goldberg as well.
WrestleMania XX
[Brock Lesnar: Here Comes The Pain - Collectors Edition]

(Blu-Ray) nWo Battle Royal vs. Kevin Nash vs. Sting vs. Konnan vs. Lex Luger vs. Curt Hennig vs. Giant vs. Scott Hall vs. Scott Norton - Members of both nWo factions (Hollywood & Wolfpack) were set to face off against each other here but Goldberg entered himself into the match as well with elimination not only happening by going over the top rope but pinfall or submission as well with Goldberg's having very smart strategy for his first ever battle royal by picking his spots to get involved in the action while also staying in corners & letting others come to him as this match wasn't much past the star power involved & the stories of Kevin Nash being focused directly on Scott Hall while Goldberg was targeting Giant.
WCW Road Wild '98

(Blu-Ray) vs. Bam Bam Bigelow - This grudge match was built up for over 3 months and started off heavy as Goldberg scooped slammed Bigelow early. Bigelow tried to work over Goldberg's lower body by doing elbow drops to the groin & working over his knees with a modified step over toehold using his weight to his advantage. Bigelow also took to the air with his diving headbutt only to be caught the second time as Goldberg shoved him off when attempting to do a moonsault leading to Goldberg's spear TWICE & jackhammer for the victory. This match showcased by Bam Bam Bigelow was definitely one of the best big men in the business because he got more of a match out of Goldberg here than most others were able to do before him.
SuperBrawl IX

(Blu-Ray) vs. Sting - This was one of those "put a storyline over matches" as it was setup to be a rematch from Halloween Havoc weeks earlier but the real focus here was the appearance of Lex Luger & Elizabeth in an attempt to "try to make things right" with Sting as this match lasted a little more than 5 minutes but the entrances were longer than the match itself.
"WCW Nitro" Nov. '99

(Blu-Ray) No Disqualification Match vs. WCW Champion Bret Hart - Goldberg had the advantage early overpowering Bret time & time again such as reversing his side headlock take down into a gorilla press slam & blocking the irish whip into a clothesline causing Bret to resort to other tactics outside of his traditional wrestling such as sending Goldberg into the railing on the outside only for Goldberg to give it right back sending Bret into the announce table & guardrail as they traded momentum with Goldberg continuing to use his power for moves like a suplex takeover while Bret took advantage of a mistimed spear to work over the legs with the figure four both in the ring & around the ringpost with the action getting so intense that referees were getting knocked out within minutes causing a special referee to come out & make the final call that just left everyone very confused. This match is notorious as the one that ended Bret's career due to the unprotected mule kick to his head causing the concussion he was never able to completely recover from along with the confusing finish that would eventually lead to the infamous rematch the next night resulting in "the band getting back together" but if you can get get past all of that, it was a good match between two men with very conflicting wrestling styles.
Starrcade '99

(Blu-Ray) World Championship Match vs. Shawn Michaels - Goldberg didn't come into this match 100% as he was attacked earlier by Mark Henry but took the early advantage constantly shoving Shawn down resulting in him using a tactic to try to get a mental edge over Goldberg as they went back & forth with Goldberg using his power for impact with various press slams & strikes while HBK used his finesse trying to take the legs out from Goldberg & later going aerial but the bigger story here was about Triple H's bounty on Goldberg being cashed in.
"RAW" Oct. '03

The biggest knock on Goldberg as far as what we saw in front of the camera was that he's always been the modern day Ultimate Warrior in that he's a one dimensional power wrestler who would rarely go out of the wrestling style while it's also no big secret that he was heavily protected in WCW by "The Streak" & wrestlers working around him to make him look & stay "protected" while he didn't have that luxury in WWE so if your expecting more than that then your looking at the wrong guy. Now saying that, there are a few faults on this DVD set as some of the match selections could have easily been replaced by another match that would have still gotten the same point but better quality (Barbarian & Batista & the Sting match from Nitro on the Blu-Ray in exchange for the Sting match between the two at Slamboree earlier that year & I would have put the infamous William Regal match or the triple threat with Kane & Triple H on the Blu-Ray as well) but one big positive is the crap (and I'm putting that lightly) from the Vince Russo era of WCW involving Goldberg was kept to a minimum. In the end, if you were a big fan of WCW during the Monday Night Wars or just a fan of Goldberg period then it's a no brainer to get this set.
