Goldberg Blasts WWE For Having “Some Japanese Girl” Beat His Streak

Goldberg has more problems with WWE.

In September 1997 Goldberg burst onto the scene with a victory over Hugh Morrus on WCW Nitro. What began as a way to showcase the ability of a rising star changed quickly when Goldberg’s winning streak became a major storyline and talking point on television. In fact, Goldberg wouldn’t taste defeat until December 1998 after notching up a record of 173-0.

While it’s well-known the record was padded out to appear more impressive, it helped Goldberg become one of the biggest stars in the world. As such, he was in high-demand when WCW was purchased by WWE in 2001.

The star eventually signed with WWE in 2003 but stayed with the company for just one year. The relationship between the two parties broke down in stunning fashion, and Goldberg wouldn’t return until 2016.

Appearing on Nothing Left Unsaid with Tim Green, Goldberg was asked whether there was any ill-feeling towards him in WWE because of his run with WCW. In response, the veteran hit out at the company, claiming he was slighted because he didn’t get on with Triple H.

“A girl beat my winning streak… beat my undefeated streak. Yeah, I can’t even remember… ‘A-soo-ka’ is her name. Some Japanese girl. And they touted her as being the one to have the longest winning streak.

And it just so happened that that culminated when I got there. And then, it just so happened that every single wrestler uses the spear in their moves. Pretty ironic that happened when I got there, right?

The fact that I didn’t get along with Paul Levesque (Triple H), which is Vince’s son-in-law, I think had everything to do with it.”

Asuka’s winning streak lasted 914 days, beginning when she signed with WWE in 2015 and ending at WrestleMania 34.

Goldberg Claims He Was Screwed Out Of A Retirement Match

Speaking back in December, Goldberg claimed he was screwed out of a retirement match by Vince McMahon. The WWE Hall of Famer said he only agreed to face Roman Reigns at Elimination Chamber in 2022 because McMahon said he would get a retirement match in return, however, the then-WWE Chairman “never held up his bargain.”

The star hasn’t wrestled since being defeated by Reigns in Saudi Arabia.
