Bill Goldberg was a guy most casual wrestling fans had never heard of when he made his World Championship Wrestling debut on Monday Nitro. It seemed, at first, as if Goldberg was merely going to quickly lose to heel Hugh Morris, but we soon learned that the former
football player was not going to be a jobber in WCW. Goldberg got the win over Morris after he hit what would become called the “Jackhammer,” and that victory began one of the most famous streaks in the history of North American pro wrestling. WCW got one thing right in pushing Goldberg as the company's top babyface.
