Soon afterward, Scott's succession of wins saw him quickly advance up the card, and he was pushed as a singles wrestler. The newcomer captivated fans with his monstrous yet silent charisma, brute strength, and agility that saw him perform high kicks and even the occasional backflip. Goldberg made his pay-per-view debut at Starrcade defeating Steve McMichael.[1][2] In early 1998, Scott defeated Brad Armstrong at SuperBrawl VIII and Perry Saturn at Spring Stampede in squash matches.[1][2] Around this time, WCW began counting Scott's consecutive wins on television as he continued to climb up the ranks. Goldberg's win over Saturn was his 74th consecutive without a loss.

A week later, Co-Raw General Manager, Stone Cold Steve Austin, interrogated several Raw superstars to find out who was driving the car. One of the interrogatees was Lance Storm, who admitted that he was the assailant. Austin forced Storm into a match with Scott, who defeated Storm. After the match, Scott forced Storm to admit that Jericho was the superstar who conspired Storm into running him over. On May 26, Goldberg was once again a guest on the Highlight Reel. Jericho expressed jealousy towards Scott's success in WCW and felt that since joining WWE, he had achieved everything he had ever wanted in his career and all that was left was to defeat Goldberg and challenged him to a match. At Bad Blood, Scott settled the score with Jericho and defeated him.[1]

After scaring off Evolution however, he turned on Scott and chokeslammed him. The following week, Kane attacked Scott again while he was defending his championship against Triple H in a rematch from Survivor Series and later that night, expressed his desire to face Scott for the title. Raw General Manager Eric Bischoff announced that Scott would be defending his championship against both Kane and Triple H in a triple threat match at Armageddon.
