P.S. Goro never got defeated by Johnny Cage, using non-canon movie elements makes you look nothing but ignorant and desperate. Mk games are the only canon of the plot, where Cage never beat Goro. You obviously don't know what you're talking about so try again. LOL@ this guy using non-canon movie, cartoon fights...
Well Goro was originally killed by Johnny Cage, Sonya, and Kano working together. It was never officially stated that Cage got the killing blow, but he is considered a better fighter than Sonya and Kano so a lot of fans consider him to be Goro's killer. The fact that the movie had Cage kick Goro's ass strengthen this theory. But there isn't anything that really absolutely proves it.
For Goro vs Wolverine I think Goro puts up a good fight but he will eventual lose to Wolverine due to his claws. But Goro is by no means a brawler like some people suggests. He is an expert grappler and martial artist who can project his chi, and he has defeated Earth's greatest martial artist for 950 years strait.
He's using the movie though, the movies, shows, comics etc aren't canon. The first film did do a good job though at following the game outside of a few "fictional matches" like art for example was a movie made up character, never existed and isn't canon to the MKU via the games.
Cage like @onilordasmodeus said only won due to prep mostly, I mean while I like Cage he pretty much sucker punched Goro then ran away lol baiting him to an edge of a cliff. He never really defeated him in H2H fair Mortal Kombat. In the actual canon story, the only one to do so was Liu Kang.
I agree though, Goro IMO I think if it was pure H2H and pure strength kombat would win but since Wolverine has the adamantium claws on top of being a good fighter will give him the win. But yeah, some people obviously don't follow MK if they think Goro is a mere brawler lol. He's an elite Shokan that's a master of Shokan and human Martial Arts with over 10,000 years experience. Wolverine is also old, but Goro's older as far as age is concerned. Logan is a brawler with some martial arts training due to his time in Japan no doubt.
BTW, @onilord, yeah dude I agree. I'm not sure if Cage would win vs. Goro in a fair fight, that might be interesting we know Motaro would have killed him if not for Raiden.
