In sports entertainment, Bill Goldberg could be the professional wrestler against whom all others gauge their accomplishments. In just over five years, he became one of the industry’s most bankable stars — and a two-time World Heavyweight champion. However, as he reinvents himself as an actor, Goldberg looks to a former in-ring rival as the blueprint for success.

Like Johnson, Goldberg exploded onto the wrestling scene in the late 90s. As “The Rock” dominated WWE rings, Goldberg owned rival World Championship Wrestling. Boasting a lengthy undefeated streak, he claimed two United States championships, the company’s tag team titles (with the legendary Bret “The Hitman” Hart) and, eventually, the WCW World Heavyweight title.
