BUY IT NOW – $90.00
Even though “Stone Cold” Steve Austin was the one bald-headed, ass-kicking, clad-in-all-black, wrestling icon of the late 90’s that’s better associated with guzzling down beer after beer, it seems like Goldberg was the only one who actually had an advertising deal with a beer company. I can’t recall Keystone Light infiltrating World Championship Wrestling in the same fashion that SURGE soda did, but it looks like the company did a TV spot with Goldberg along with releasing several promotional items as well:
Goldberg having a starring role in a “BITTER BEER FACE!!” ad couldn’t have timestamped this thing more perfectly.
In other material Keystone Light used Goldberg in, they actually photoshopped in a random gold WCW WRESTLING belt around his waist. You’d think that with the full partnership with Goldberg and WCW for these ads, they would’ve used a real title but I guess the Big Gold Belt might be more of a Natural Light kind of championship.
Full gallery of evidence of this Goldberg + Keystone Light partnership can be viewed below. Keep in mind that you get a majority of these items on eBay RIGHT NOW if you really want ’em. Definitely one of the weirder wrestling promotional items you could display in your wrestling room/shrine/cave, if you’re lucky enough to have one. It’s also worth noting the warning listed on every single one of these items:
“For more information on responsible drinking, visit wcw.com.”
I don’t know how pictures of Lance Storm or Mark Madden musings help people lower their alcohol intake, but WCW is there to help!

Austin usually had better taste in beer
Richard Gottfried look at the state of the belt Goldberg is wearing!
It’s no WCW Television Championship belt
The TV advert as well!
“Now that’s what I call a great rack! F’naar, f’naar!”
Did Chesney and Wolfe script that?!
Marc Bazeley Dusty Wolfe?
That poster in WCW down to the bone. Cheaper versions of everything pictured. I hate it but it’s true. Another gem was their deal with Church’s Chicken, as if they were as big as KFC
