This awesome graphic tee features a portrait of Bill Goldberg, one of the biggest names in professional wrestling from the 1990s. Goldberg spent most of his wrestling career with WCW, or World Championship Wrestling. He was undefeated in singles competitions from 1997-1998, which prompted his rise to fame. Goldberg was the face of WCW until the promotion was bought by WWE in the early 2000s, and he was WCW's highest paid wrestler, earning around $2.5 million a year.

Although Goldberg is held in high esteem alongside other wrestling legends like Stone Cold Steve Austin and Hulk Hogan, he didn't start off as a wrestler. Goldberg was originally a football player and he was drafted into the NFL in 1990. However, he suffered an injury which ultimately lead to his early retirement from the sport. While in rehab from his NFL injury, Goldberg got into MMA and power lifting. He was spotted at the gym by wrestlers Lex Luger and Sting who convinced him to give pro wrestling a try. While in the ring, Goldberg embodied a hyper-masculine persona which has been praised for counteracting the "nice Jewish boy" stereotype. He's gone on the record saying that he hoped to be someone that kids could look up to as a Jewish sports hero.
