====SECTION 1: HISTORY OF BILL GOLDBERG=====
============================================
"Who's Next?"

Like many wrestlers, Goldberg never thought of this career.
He prefered football and went on to become a player in the NFL. 
Everything changed when Goldberg was injured and could no longer play.

With his football career behind him, Goldberg started to learn martial
arts and went to WCW's wrestling school. In 1997, Goldberg debuted and
his gained popularity quickly. Goldberg went on to become WCW Heavyweight
Champion and had a huge undefeated streak. Due to an injury, Goldberg did 
not return to WCW in time before it was bought by the WWE.

Goldberg did not join WWE quickly. Instead, he went to wrestle in Japan 
with the AJPW. Goldberg was well recieved and went on to have a few great 
matches with the likes of Taiyo Kea, Rick Steiner, and he teamed up with 
Keiji Mutoh against Kronix. (Sadly, there was no Goldberg/Mutoh dream match). 
During this time, the WWE was having negotiations with Goldberg.

In a surprise move, Goldberg appeared in the WWE right after wrestlemania 19. His 
popularity quickly rose again and he became WWE champion after defeating Triple H.
His title reign would be short and the title was returned to Triple H. Right after
that, Goldberg became furious at the WWE by the way he was being used by them. Goldberg 
returned to Japan again for a few matches left in his contract afterwards. He would
then start a fued with Brock Lesnar once he returned. His final match in the WWe would be
against Lesnar at Wrestlemania XX. Goldberg has signed on to return to fight in Japan. 
Chances are that he will no longer return to the WWE.

=======================
==SECTION 4: STRATEGY==
=======================

GENERAL STRATEGY
Goldberg is a powerful wrestler and a tough opponent as well.
Don't use your strikes a lot and just grapple as much as you can. He can end 
a match in a few minutes, so try to quickly weaken your opponent with throws. 
Goldberg's main weaknessis submission holds. Fighters like Inoki can have a 
large advantage because of this, so try to take care often.

STRIKES
Goldberg's strikes aren't as powerful like their real-life counterparts...
(I didn't want to bring up a Bret Hart reference, but...)

Use strikes when an opponent keeps on trying to get close to you. His Spear 
is your main strike weapon. Connecting the spear isn't hard, so use it 
as often as you like.Remember that Goldberg has two Spears, so use them to 
trick your opponents. 

Example:
Run and Shoulder Tackle, then when your opponent gets up, Spear them with X+A.

GRAPPLES
Most of Goldberg's grapples are graded A or B, so use these often as possible. 
Once available, don't hesitate to use the Stretch Buster, as it is fast and 
powerful. The stretch buster is capable of tiring out an opponent and leaving 
him open for the Jackhammer. Since he has the "One-Hit Finisher",the Jackhammer 
can critical and be very powerful.

COMBOS

     1)Flying Shoulder Attack -> Spear(X+A)
     2)Any Corner Grapple -> Diving Elbow Drop
