WWE's 15 best World Heavyweight Champions

#15 Goldberg

Days as champion: 84
Key wins: Triple H

Remembered as one of the most dominant Superstars in history, Goldberg became the first former WCW World Champion to win WWE’s World Heavyweight Championship

Goldberg set his sights on Triple H and the World Title at SummerSlam 2003 in the Elimination Chamber. He eliminated three competitors, but The Game stole the victory thanks to help from his Evolution cronies. Goldberg finally earned a one-on-one match against Triple H at Unforgiven under the condition he would retire if he lost. The imposing Superstar overpowered The King of Kings, though, en route to capturing his only title in WWE. 

The desperate Game responded by placing a $100,000 bounty on the champ. Still, Goldberg defeated The Cerebral Assassin at Survivor Series in a glorified Handicap Match, as Ric Flair and Batista stood in the Evolution leader’s corner, despite entering with a bum foot.

For having to fight off attacks from the entire Raw roster, Goldberg’s 84-day was certainly credible.
