Alot of people will disagree with me here but Goldberg/Warrior in 99-00 would of been money for the casual fans. Not on a massive PPV because the match would of been dogs vomit but at Slamboree or Mayhem or something. Definetly would of been money.
98 would of been good but after the Hogan loss and then feeding Warrior to Goldberg just wouldnt of looked good, waiting a year or two would of been ideal

I read somewhere that Goldberg vs. Warrior was supposed to main event Starrcade 1998, but then the Hogan match happened and Warrior ran off. Vince Russo wanted to book that match when he got to WCW, but by then it would not have been the same draw.
If booked properly in 1998, Warrior having his first WCW match against Goldberg could have drawn huge money. Goldberg remains undefeated, but Warrior looks very strong in his effort, keeping enough credibility so that fans pay more to see him beat Hogan (only to do the inevitable job). Meanwhile, the Goldberg-DDP match could have been a Starrcade main event if we assume that Kevin Nash doesn't book himself in that spot.

There for... something. Something big, something huge. Something that has not happened yet, but it will be epic when it does. And I was there.

I get the sense that Warrior was such a headache that Bischoff wanted to get rid of him ASAP and didn't care if it meant leaving money on the table. and honestly I can't blame him if that's how he felt.
