Everything must have a beginning, and this match here is Bill Goldberg’s…unless of course you count dark matches, which we don’t.

Goldberg’s Streak Count: 1

WCW Thunder (January 8, 1998)

In 1997 the WCW had done gangbusters. Nitro was one of the highest rated shows on TV or maybe just on cable. They were so successful and making so much money that they decided to add a another show to their TV schedule in addition to Nitro and Saturday Night and Worldwide and Main Event and whatever else they already had. That show would air on Thursday nights and be known as Thunder. This is that show.

This is the premiere episode so we get a pretty stacked card with something like three different title matches signed plus the Larry Zbyszko vs. Eric Bischoff match from Starrcade ’97 in its entirety, which I sure the fans in the arena are going to love. So let’s take it away!

Goldberg vs. Leroy Howard (WCW Worldwide June 6, 1998)

Posted on

Another episode of Worldwide, another victim to Goldberg’s streak. Leroy Howard (or Lee Roy Howard as his graphic lists him) gets maimed in like 30 seconds. Not even the announcers know how many wins Goldberg has at this point. “I think this might be 92, but it could be more. We have to check with Mike Tenay and find out for sure!”

Goldberg’s Streak Count: 92~98?

Rey Mysterio Jr. (WCW 1999)

On February 21, 1999 as part of SuperBrawl IX Rey Mysterio Jr. and his tag team partner, Konnan, took on the team of Scott Hall and Kevin Nash in a Hair vs. Mask match. As could be expected Rey and Konnan came up short and Rey Mysterio Jr. was forced to unmask, revealing himself to have the face of a seven year old boy. Konnan, already having his head shaved just sort of shrugged his shoulders I suppose.

Of the unmasking, Rey Mysterio later said, “I was strongly against it! I don’t think WCW understood what the mask meant to me, to my fans and to my family. It was a very bad move on their behalf. The fans wanted Rey Mysterio with the mask and losing it hurt me a lot. It was also frustrating that it didn’t come as the climax to a feud with another masked wrestler, but in a throwaway match. The same thing happened to Juventud and Psicosis and psychologically wise it was a bad move by Eric Bischoff. I think the fans understand that I was in a position where I had no option. I either had to lose my mask or lose my job.”
