    Nothing wrong with him being driven by money. He knows he's good and makes people pay for it.

    The only thing that tempers my delight in the Next Big Thing returning is his last big match vs Goldberg was an absolute dog because both of them were leaving and they both couldn't give two shits. I felt a little cheated that such a matchup was treated so shabbily by the two of them.

    He needs to regain my trust that he can put on a good match.

    I think all of us were hurt by that shit hole match which could of been a great match.
    But we need to hope that Lesnar is back, there isnt much options out there for him anyways now.

    I never really liked Goldberg to the extent a lot of people did (que the OMGWTFISWRONGWITHYOU posts), tolerated him was a good way to put my opinion of him, so I wasnt expecting much from him Vs Brock... however even going in with low expectations I was dissapointed.

    No.

    He was in an awesomely hyped match against Hogan for the title, which, in WCW's infinite wisdom, they gave away for free to win one night of the Monday Night Wars.

    His squash matches were fun if you were a casual, but if you were looking for anything deeper, he sucked.

    He couldn't work a match when he came to WWE. His match against Rock went for about two minutes before Goldberg went for the spear and signalled for the Jackhammer and from there it degenerated into a finisher-fest and wouldn't have gone more than 12 minutes.

    and a great match vs saturn, and vs regal

    when he got the chance to work a longer match he generally delivered a good match at worst, but it wasn't his character to do so

    but the omg movez~! workrate~! types that want every match to be a 25 minute submission move epic think he sucked so meh

    I enjoyed his squash matches from what I saw in WCW (barely watched any WCW, whatsoever, just enough to know wrestlers) but I was basing my opinion on Goldberg's inability to wrestle a match when he came to WWE and wasn't being booked as a squash monster but as a genuine star against WWE's stars.

    That match v regal was meant to be a squash, but regal sand bagged him and started trying to chain wrestle to show Goldberg up, as many like regal thought Goldberg was getting pushed far more and harder then he should've been.

    After the match regal got chewed out, but still walked up to Bill shook his hand and told him something like " you proved me wrong"

    He makes the clothesline look more vicious than what JBL did.

    When Goldberg beat Hogan on Nitro that was just great tv.

    Didn't he destroy Raven's Flock once as well?

    I really don't think Goldberg was bad in WWE.

    Sure, the Lesnar match wasn't the greatest (though the crowd made it much more entertaining), but he had good matches with The Rock, Jericho, Shawn Michaels (even though as Jim Cornette says - "He could have a good match with a couch") and even HHH who gave him his customary bury job.

    In fact, in 12 months Triple H won feuds against Booker T, Kevin Nash, Scott Steiner and Goldberg. Talk about twisting the knife into WCW.

    I heard the Documentary with Edge talking about his career was very good.

    Got pretty good reviews all round.

    Anyone seen Raw?

    Bit confusing what they are doing with Bryan, they're acknowledging he's getting cheers from the fans, but keeping him heel.

    Almost a anti-Cena type character perhaps? Keeping his heel/face status the same despite reception from the crowd?

    Probably just flying by the seat of their pants after dramatically misreading audience sentiment toward Bryan. Not the first time they've done it. Not saying it's up there with Tony Schiavone deriding Mick Foley, but it was a pretty erroneous thing to do to an IWC darling / underdog wrestler.

    I haven't seen Raw so this might be completely incorrect but I would guess they'll keep Sheamus on Smackdown for a little while to protect him and be able to edit crowd reaction as necessary.

    Apparently wwe.com prematurely showed Lesner in his new ring gear. Anyone got the pics?

    Edit: This is apparently it.
