    I like his moves and his two finishers. I like The JackHammer and the Spear. He has the best Spear ever. He took out Bret Hart by giving him a concussion. He kicked him in the head hard. I used to chant Gold-Berg when he was still wrestling. He was undefeated in WCW but Kevin Nash ended it. I would love for Goldberg to wrestle in TNA. Maybe he will in the future. I can`t wait to see that happen.moreless
