Goldberg may be gunning down another title in his legendary career at SummerSlam but he has named one star he’d have no problem sharing the spotlight with as a team.
Although a solo act for most of his WWE Hall Of Fame career, Goldberg does lay claim to holding tag team gold on one occasion. In WCW, he teamed up with Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart to claim the WCW World Tag Team Championship in December 1999 with a win over Creative Control.
Speaking on WWE’s The Bump, Goldberg was asked if he could have a tag team partner from the past or present who would he choose? The former WCW Champion gave what some might find as a surprising answer:
Brody began his wrestling career in the seventies and shared the ring with the likes of Bruno Sammartino, Jerry Lawler, Dusty Rhodes, and Antonio Inoki. He held various tag team titles throughout his career alongside the likes of fellow WWE Hall Of Famers Kerry Von Erich and Stan Hansen.
Bruiser Brody is perhaps sadly best known for the tragic end to his life. At a show in Puerto Rico, Brody was scheduled to face Danny Spivey but was asked to step into the shower area of the locker room by José Gonzalez who had previously wrestled as Invader Number 1. It was while in the shower alone with Gonzalez that Brody was stabbed with fellow wrestler Tony Atlas coming to his aid and helping Brody to get to paramedics who arrived sometime later. Sadly Bruiser Brody passed away from his injuries at the age of 42. Gonzalez stood trial for murder but claimed self-defence and was acquitted by a jury in a hugely controversial decision.
Bruiser Brody was the subject of an episode of the acclaimed documentary series Dark Side Of The Ring where the life, career, and death of Brody were all discussed. Brody was inducted into the Legacy wing of the WWE Hall Of Fame in 2019.
