Jackhammered into Darkness: The Rise and Fall of Wrestling's Goldberg

In 1997, the World Wrestling Federation and World Championship Wrestling were at war for television ratings. Both companies were part of the famous Monday Night Wars.

While the WWF was struggling, WCW was earning major ratings winnings. The companies did whatever it took to win the ratings week after week.

That year, WCW was still going strong and defeating the WWF. WCW's success could be based on the New World Order and their cruiserweight division.

That same year marked the debut of a man who kept on helping WCW win the ratings war. The man's name: William Scott Goldberg—aka Goldberg.

Goldberg helped WCW keep on defeating the WWF week after week in the ratings. He became the crowd favorite by 1998, but the success would not last long.

The man's career started off great, but it would soon go downhill fast. He transitioned over the to the WWF, now known as the WWE, in 2003, but it didn't work.

From ending a man's career to entering Madison Square Garden to a hostile crowd, Goldberg has been through a lot.

Prepare to read the story of Goldberg—a man whose career had a bright future, but spiraled into darkness.
