Rabbi Rage (born Jerome Lester Horowitz Goldberg) is an ordained Orthodox Jewish Rabbi and professional wrestler wrestling in the WNWA.
Rabbi Jerome Lester Horowitz Goldberg is second cousin to former WCW/WWE star and world champion Bill Goldberg. Rabbi Goldberg was dismissed from his position with a synagogue in New York City for attacking another Rabbi. The altercation was over a disagreement concerning a dime that had been dropped on the synagogue steps. Rabbi Goldberg found the dime and pocked it. The other Rabbi took offense, saying that the dime should go into the synagogue's coffers. The argument escalated and Rabbi Goldberg ended up kicking the other holy man in the crotch and chopping him several times across the chest. With no outlet for his energies and using his ease in dispatching the other much younger rabbi, admittedly he was a double amputee on crutches, as a sign he embarked on a wrestling career. If little Cousin Billy could do it then so could Rabbi Jerome Lester Horowitz Goldberg. Taking the name Rabbi Rage the Rabbi first appeared in the WNWA in Waxhaw, NC by attacking Lo Hung Schlong during a match with Mike Milligan. The Rabbi mauled Lo Hung Schong as well as Milligan, whom he hit over the head with a bottle of Jewish communion wine (Manischewitz-Concord Grape). Since then he has attacked Lo Hung Schlong both in and out of the ring, including twice at Sclong's apartment and once at Texas Instruments, where Schlong works. The Rabbi has not said why he has singled out Schlong, only that the entire WNWA will feel the rage of Rabbi Jerome Lester Horowitz Goldberg.
At most shows and pay per views, Rage defeated a series of jobbers such as Professor Ben Andrews and Love Muffin Fanuci. On September 4, 2007, Rage received his first title shot against Prince Charming. Rage, with the help of Pike, defeated Charming for the WNWA Texas Heavyweight Championship.
