WWE's Goldberg Used To Hate Other Wrestlers Using The Spear

"See the master do it"

While the Spear has become a common finishing move in professional wrestling, being used by the likes of Edge, Roman Reigns, Christian, Bobby Lashley and others, the move was initially popularised by Goldberg during Da' Man's run in World Championship Wrestling.

Speaking about his finisher on Dr. Beau Hightower's YouTube channel, Goldberg revealed he used to hate other wrestlers using the Spear but now he likes it.

"About 15 to 20 superstars at WWE use it, and I used to hate it, but now I like it. I like it because you see them do it, and then you see the master do it. And there's a huge difference. And if I like you, I'll let you live through it. If I don't like you, I'll put my head right in the middle of your chest and you'll be in the hospital," Goldberg said.

"So that was the allure of my character. And it was also like throwing Romans to the lions. You had to sit at the edge of your seat because you had no idea what was gonna happen. And you knew it was gonna happen quickly, but you had to focus and you had to be attentive of what was going on because you'd miss it. Paul Wight, the Big Show, and I used to travel around the country doing main event house shows. I'd beat him before the bell rang, and people were on their feet. All they wanted to see was me pick up a 525-pound guy."

Goldberg faced Roman Reigns at Saturday's Elimination Chamber pay-per-view and the WWE Hall Of Famer is now believed to be a free agent following the end of his contract.
