#4 WWE Hall of Famer Steve Austin was mistaken for Goldberg
While their characters were very different, both men had similar appearances. Like Austin, Goldberg had a bald head and a goatee. He also wore black trunks and had a menacing on-screen persona.
Back then, casual wrestling fans could have been forgiven for getting the WWE and WCW stars mixed up. Nowadays, however, it is easy for anyone to tell the difference between the WWE Hall of Famers… or so you would think.
In August 2018, Austin took to Twitter to reveal that he had just been mistaken for Goldberg at Denny’s. Goldberg joked that he should have thanked the person for the compliment.
Responding to Goldberg, Austin said in jest that it was going to take him a couple of days to get over the incident.
Although there was legitimate competition between Austin and Goldberg in the 1990s, the two men are now friends in real life. Goldberg even appeared on Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions show on the WWE Network in 2019.Published 07 Nov 2020, 19:30 IST
