Goldberg: WWE Had 'Some Japanese Girl' Beat My Undefeated Streak

Goldberg has also questioned the prevalence of The Spear as a finishing move.

Was there any ill-will between WWE and Goldberg when the former WCW star came to the company? 

Asked that very question by Tim Green during an appearance on his Nothing Left Unsaid podcast, Goldberg replied: 

"That happened after I got there. A girl beat my undefeated streak. I can't even remember. Ah-soo-ka [Asuka] is her name. Some Japanese girl. They touted her as being the one to have the longest winning streak. It just so happened that it culminated when I got there. Then, it just so happened that every single wrestler uses the spear in their moves. Pretty ironic that happened when I got there". 

Goldberg initially wrestled for WWE between 2003 and 2004, before returning for a part-time run between 2016 and 2022. 

Asuka's winning streak began in September 2015 (during her run in NXT) and culminated with a loss to then-SmackDown Women's Champion Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania 34.

In total, Asuka's undefeated streak lasted 914 days. Goldberg's, meanwhile, was a claimed 173-0 (though that number was inflated).

While the WWE Hall of Famer may be miffed at his (dubious) record being broken, he did take the time to congratulate Asuka as she was in the midst of her undefeated run back in February 2017, writing on Twitter (now X): "Congratulations @WWEAsuka on your 149th win in a row! #whosnext 次はどなたですか".

Kevin Nash recently claimed that WCW chose to end Goldberg's undefeated streak because fans were turning on him.
