Thought of the Day: The Goldberg Debut

Yet another idea that hasn’t been used in like 15 years.Goldberg debuted on Nitro seemingly as a jobber.  Tenay, the WCW announcer who seemingly knew everything, had no idea who Goldberg was or knew anything about him.  Ignoring the winning streak and all that jazz, that’s a pretty smart way to debut someone.  Don’t give them a character, don’t give them anything unique, don’t tell us anything about them, but have the guy win and fill in the background later.  It’s better than a ballroom dancer, no?

    Not really. He was the chosen one and the announcers knew who he was.

    Yep, and he also was attacking R-Truth, not showing up to job to someone.
