YES.. true statement.
Goldberg was, "jack hammering", (finishing manuever), the Giant, a.k.a the Big Show.
Ryback couldn't even lift Lord Tensai...
Golberg's intensity coming out the gate was a lot more too. Ryback's first BIG match, he did he got screwed over. He fought CM PUNK for the title last month @ Hell in the Cell, ATL:GA.
Ironic that I bring up GA, and being from the PCH state, huh?
Goldberg's first BIG BIG match, heayweight title implications of course, he fought Hollywood Hulk Hogan, in the GA dome. Lets just say the ex. atl falcon, and UGA bulldog, won the strap from the best wrestler to date.

I will agree with you that Goldberg was a better investment at the time, but things have changed.
Goldberg (as u said) was a georgia golden boy, with TNT being housed in atlanta so the build up was obvious. Now that WWE owns the scene and they need to learn from their mistakes of not devoloping stories/talent, I think Ryback ends up being better long term.
They have put Ryback in the main conversation quickly, which is what they did with Cena at look how that has carried them. I see Ryback turning heel when he loses this weekend, and having a run like Punk (only as the us/intercontinental champ for over 2 years)

Ryback in 4 years will be outta the business..
well, possibly in TNA.
He's good, but his gimmick won't be long lived, don't know how it would be.

It's quite possible another roid monger may be shipped away or hurt, but.......cena era is coming to an end, so a face is needed....wwe could do the same with goldberg in the day of drawing a gimmick...

sorry, but the Cena era is NOT coming to an end.
Like i said a million times, he's the Hulk Hogan w/ jean shorts a.k.a jorts..
When Ryback came out, what did they chant?
Goldberg beat Hogan, I doubt Ryback could beat John Cena. Nobody would write that script. Ryback's a goldberg imitation, bottom line.
