Quote From Jim Ross Website

I don't perceive that the two, Lesnar vs Goldberg interactions have been 'squashes' but merely a unique way to set up their blow off match which I assume will be at Wrestlemania. I do not see this process making Brock look 'weak' as some do.


I only hope their now two disgustingly short interactions for highly paid part time contracts is to put us into a false sense of security before a 10-15 minute Wrestlemania classic.......

They aren't earning their crust, guys who work their bollox off all year for much less pay are bound to be pissed off and fans are ratty more than the first time around.

Why not book Brock to attack Goldberg and get him eliminated? He looked a weak UFC drug banned part timer to be booked to accept being eliminated by Brock and just walk away.

The short interactions builds anticipation for their Wrestlemania match, it's smart booking really. Also it doesn't really make Brock look weak, he's still remained dominant in general it's just they've gone the route of Goldberg having his number and getting lucky hitting Lesnar where it hurts quick and coming out on top.

The expected plan is for Goldberg to defeat Kevin Owens at Fastlane for the belt then face Lesnar in a title match at WM. My only concern really is if Goldberg can work more than a brief match where he just runs through a couple of his trademark spots, in the Royal Rumble while Goldberg was able to do what he needed to do fairly successfully he did look a bit stiff in his his movements and a couple of his exchanges a little awkward.

Dirt sheets reporting their Mania match is expected to be as short as their other interactions so far.

That's gotta be a troll surely??? If they don't even do five minutes when most fans will expect around 15 minutes then it will be booed out of the building very loudly.

Questions once again will also be asked about if they are earning their pay.

The shock value of the 90 second match is gone. Goldberg can't wrestle. Brock hasn't put on an actual match in years. What am I supposed to be looking forward to?

I saw a report saying that the reason they have kept Goldberg's physical work basic and as minimal as possible is because if he does any more than that he looks visibly winded, if he is so limited that all he can do is short squash matches and a couple of trademark spots then he should be kept as far away from the WWE title as possible. I'm a Goldberg fan but it's insulting to the full time roster if they are having to put over a guy who can't hold up his end in the ring anymore so they just have to sell and look at the lights for him in a quick match. It's almost as bad as when Bret Hart returned and was incapable of taking bumps but they still put him in matches where his opponents could only use painfully simple and weak looking offence and just sell the few moves Bret could still do.

In this situation I can understand WWE bringing the talent back for maybe one match for a nostalgic pop against someone who the loss won't hurt(like they originally did with Bret against Vince but then they decided to milk his return more at the expense of the younger full-time talent), its ridiculous and a insult if Kevin Owens has to lay down for Goldberg in a two minute squash to hand Goldberg the title for Wrestlemania.

If they are going to keep it to a very short match, why are they putting the title on the line too? Let's be honest there is zero chance of Goldberg not beating Owens....unless they swerve us all and have Lesnar cost Goldberg, which would be a nice swerve.

I would hope it's Jericho with the helping hand on the finish. If Lesnar costs Goldberg the match he essentially takes away a potential title shot for himself since their match is already made.

Imagine Jericho...after all these years...costing Bill Goldberg a championship. Then we get to have the best friend fight at Mania for the title...the match we deserve.

Exactly. Oldberg has always been on average a 2 or 3 star match kind of guy and Brock hasn't had a match of note for years now.

Quote From Jim Ross Website

Smart money seems to be leaning on the Wrestlemania main event being Goldberg defending the Universal Title against Brock Lesnar. You can do the math on this one. I like the booking if it goes down this way as it adds a viable wrinkle to the expected main event that was born under surprising and unlikely circumstances in November.  

The argument that WWE is building around two, older talents is feasible but no promotion can "save" an epic match that already has a short shelf life. Get it while one can is my way of thinking.  Plus, the more eyeballs on Wrestlemania the better it is for ALL talents to turn in memorable performances in their respective matches so that they can vie for the main event spot next year in NOLA.

Because the Lesnar-Goldberg storyline likely has a sooner than one would like to admit shelf life, I agree in getting all one can out of  these two now, as in 2017. Seriously doubt that there will ever be another opportunity to promote Lesnar vs Goldgerg which obviously has cache now.

If this actually happens I expect and hope that the live crowd absolutely pisses all over it from start to finish to let Vince know.

Then when it's put on WWE Network after it ends or later down the line released on DVD we can all laugh at how much editing has taken place to make it sound nowhere near as bad as it was.

86 Seconds was the right finish. That should have been the end to the storyline. I would have had a LOT more fun in seeing Goldberg and Lesnar in a match together if they were teamed together to face Jeri-KO. And no before you go saying: "That's not a very good match either!" No, it's not, I agree, but it would still be better than Goldberg vs Lesnar and Jericho vs Owens without the title on the line.

Jericho should be the one to get the title at Fastlane, and Jericho can either successfully defend the title at Mania and then drop it shortly thereafter (say to Finn Balor or someone like that) before he starts touring with Fozzy again, or drop it back to Owens to make him a 2-time champion and all that much more of a heat magnet.
