    Undertaker, Kurt Angle, Brock Lesnar, Goldberg, Tatanka, Sid Vicious, Honky Tonk Man, and Umaga all went 1-2 years for theirs.
    One of these names feels very out of place on this list.

    Konnan, Hennig, & Hall led to the nWo being forced to give Goldberg a shot. He also ran the Flock gauntlet several times before and after his US title win.

    Random note: my favorite Jackhammer of all time was on La Parka. He danced and waved as he was being slammed.

    Then IC Champ Michaels technically ended his streak at WM IX (won via count out so HBK kept the title). He lost on Superstars or Worlwide or whatever the b show was at the time. I think it was to Borga and then Yokazuna came out for a post-match beat down.

    Raw did a 2.8, same as last week.
    This is good because no vince was advertised, and it wasn't a 2.5 again, which scared the shit out of vince.
    Because i guess vince doesn't watch sports.

    since when??

    Just saw a commercial for a Trenton house show: "Ryback vs. CM in a Last Man Standing Match for the WWE Championship". Kinda makes tonight's announcement seem redundant? Why make it a title match? I think a non-title before a PPV would make much more sense, then you know the challenger actually *could* win.

    Does the Three Man Band play any instruments?
    IDK but i think they have officially replaced la familia as the worst heel stable ever. seriously why the fuk would they think slater should have a stable?? i actually like jindrak & drew too.

    WWE and Goldberg's website have still say it's 173, but they fail to list about 30-40 matches.

    Chris Jericho says, "Goldberg would have to have been wrestling a Mexico City ten match a week schedule to even come close to the number of matches they were claiming he won. One week he'd be 42-0 and seven days later he'd be 58-0." I think Kevin Sullivan claims something similar, too. Here's a link to everything televised, and it show him as 64-1.

    As far as (and I use this word loosely) the legitimacy of Goldberg's streak, he beat did Raven for the US title and Hogan for the World title. He beat a lot of no-name jobbers & midcard guys like Meng, Glacier (I think he lost 4 times during the streak, 8 times in all), Disco Inferno, Fit Finlay, La Parka, and Hugh Morris but he did have wins over DDP, The Giant, Konnan, Hall, Hennig, and Sting.
    at least the midcarders & jobbers goldberg beat were on the roster, they fed ryback local jobbers that NOBODY had even heard of.

    Mr. Backlund continued wrestling under the new gimmick of an out of touch, yet highly dangerous, maniac out to teach the new generation a lesson.[3] He often appeared in business suits, had a hyperactive personality, and used (or, often, misused) large words to sound important. He also demanded that he be addressed as "Mr. Backlund". He would only sign autographs for wrestling fans if they could recite the names of all of the US Presidents in chronological order

    thats the problem i have with wwe's way of showing that new big guys are strong (see kozlov for another example) they beat each week wrestlers that i have never seen on wwe tv before. spanish announcers sometimes try to make excuses for them being in the ring. or try saying that are local talent trying to break into the E or something. but still those are 2 wreslters that nobody (that only watched the E, or not super wrestling fan) knows about.

    That and it took some proper building before Goldberg was able to be anywhere near the WCW Heavyweight Title picture and before then he had a midcard title run after defeating Raven for the US Title, and feuded with other WCW main eventers before they fed him Hogan

    Pretty much this. Goldberg was as unstoppable as Taker at 'Mania by the time he got to Hogan.

    Goldberg made his televised debut around October of 1997, I think and he won the World Heavyweight Title in July of 1998. Ryback has had less of a build up. I think it's like less than six months and no other title belt challenge like Goldberg had. This is the first title shot of any sort that he's had.

    I was going to bring up that the most high profile win he has is over Miz, he hasn't even beaten half of the midcard heels.

    If you don't look at the names of the guys he beat but just name off the accomplishments of the guys he beat it looks more impressive.

    He beat two former world heavyweight champions, a former WWE Champion, the former tag team champions in a two on one handicap match, the current intercontenetal champion.


    That's probably how the WWE will spin it to pad his resume.

    IF WWE spins it that way they might as well call us retarded for watching their show.
