Kevin Nash has opened up on a significant point in the match where he ended the undefeated streak of Goldberg.
Goldberg’s stock quickly rose in WCW as he ploughed through opponents hitting spears and jackhammers all round as his streak of victories continued to grow. This lasted all the way through until his shot at WCW Champion Hollywood Hogan in July 1998, where he picked up the title belt to the delight of the crowd.
The streak finally came to an end before the end of 1998, when Goldberg last to Kevin Nash at Starrcade 1998.
Speaking on his Kliq This podcast, Kevin Nash has talked about the match and how he’s still not entirely certain why he was chosen to pick up such a significant victory.
Well, I don’t know. I mean, I don’t know why it was me. I mean, you would think at one point it was because I was booking, but that’s been proven false.
I think it’s the fact that he knew that at 63 years old as I am right now that I would look exactly like Ed Harris on Westworld. But God I’ve got some f*cking lines on my face. No, I just put it this way If Bill didn’t want me to powerbomb him he would have just f*cking dead-sacked my ass.
That son of a b*tch if you’ve ever seen me – ever watch that powerbomb he took that thing like a pro man. Yeah, I mean, he did. So at this point in my life, I have nothing but love for Bill.
Goldberg recently discussed the heat Bret Hart has with him, and how the whole situation “sucks”.
