Goldberg Biography

William Scott "Bill" Goldberg is an American actor, former football player and retired wrestler. His football profile was limited to a few years of NFL career. During the rehab following his NFL injury, Goldberg began power lifting and mixed martial arts training. To him wrestling was as an alternative to his fledgling football career and so he began training at the WCW Power Plant. On the September 22 edition of WCW Monday Nitro, Goldberg defeated Hugh Morrus in his debut match. Soon afterward, he began to dish out quick lessons to his fellow WCW wrestlers in the range of 1–2 minutes. Goldberg's succession of wins saw him quickly advance up the card, and he was pushed as a singles wrestler. Goldberg signed a one year contract with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) in March 2003, debuting in WWE on the March 31 edition of Raw, the night after WrestleMania XIX. . Immediately, he began a feud with The Rock by spearing him. He defeated The Rock in his debut match at Backlash. The match was won by Goldberg following three spears and a Jackhammer.   Goldberg is a two-time world champion: a one-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion and one-time World Heavyweight Champion, with both reigns represented by the Big Gold Belt. He is recognized by WWE as the first undefeated world champion in the history of professional wrestling and the first man to hold a version of the Big Gold Belt in both WCW and WWE. He is also a two-time WCW United States Heavyweight Champion and one-time WCW World Tag Team Champion. After retiring from wrestling, he began working as a commentator for the mixed martial arts promotion EliteXC until its closure.
