I'm going to be greatly pissed off if Goldberg wins the title. But the only way I can see Owens retaining is by looking weak and being overshadowed by Lesnar helping him retain.

Had to laugh at Owens bringing up on Twitter that the match poster shows Goldberg with a jet black photoshopped beard to get shut of the grey LOL

If by some miracle Goldberg could get his cardio up to last fifteen minutes every so often, these two could have a decent fued over many months, rather than just being filler for a few weeks.

I would have agreed with you about Goldberg beating Owens but then I read Jim Ross' latest blog where he actually endorses WWE's decision to put the belt on Goldberg to defend against Lesnar.
His reasoning is Goldberg vs Brock is money for sure but it has a limited shelf life, it's very much now or never for this feud. So WWE need to put everything they can in to it, Wrestlemania rubber match set for the belt and the previous quick win for Goldberg and the short exchanges since that between the two builds the anticipation and intensity. It's fair to say that this booking decision comes at the expense of the full time guys but it will draw and put more eyes on Wrestlemania which gives the other guys on the under-card the chance to shine on a bigger platform.

The one thing that's certain though is if Goldberg gets this title run and Mania main event he needs to be able to work a longer match. As I've said before I've noticed Goldberg looking stiff and visibly winded very quickly during the brief amounts of physicality he's been involved in so far, he also seems to sweat like crazy which all points to a lack of stamina. Goldberg for a man of fifty years old is in phenomenal shape, his physique is close to mirroring how he looked during his prime years so it's clear he's busted his ass training in the gym, but clearly as Admin says he needs to work hard on his cardio as short squash matches in such a high profile matches against top talent is really unacceptable and short changing the fans.

I can not possibly see how Goldberg/Lesnar 3 will draw a single set of eyeballs because of the title. Wrestlemania is going to draw because of the brand. If this were one of the B shows or even Survivor Series I could understand why promoting this match as a title match would make sense, but this is WRESTLEMANIA. It literally sells itself. To say that the undercard guys should appreciate the shine that they will get by being on the card with two guys that could possibly have the second worst Mania match in history is absolute rubbish (imo). I find it completely appalling that the title is going to be yanked from KO to promote this abomination.

As for Goldberg's...even in his prime stamina was an issue. This match is going to be awful (possibly).

I'm ok with them booking Goldberg vs Lesnar for the title provided there is a bigger picture in mind, in other words the victor will then put over a full time talent for the title following Wrestlemania. As stated though I would expect Goldberg to get his conditioning up so he can work at least 10-15 minutes against Owens and Brock.

At Wrestlemania I'm expecting Brock to win, realistically he can't absorb another loss to Goldberg without it damaging his beast aura, plus with Goldberg quite possibly retiring right after Wrestlemania or at best probably within the next 12-18 months there is little sense in damaging Lesnar just to put Goldberg over so strong.

So anyway imagine this scenario, Lesnar wins, the next night on Raw there is a show of respect between Goldberg and Brock and Goldberg gets ready to leave saying goodbye to the fans, enter Samoa Joe, he attacks Goldberg taking him out effectively writing Goldberg off TV for a while, he then challenges Lesnar and defeats him for the title firmly establishing Joe as a destroyer in WWE.

Whilst I like that theory, I can't see them having Lesnar drop the title quickly. I think he'll hold it for a good 3 months or so at worst. The one good thing is they have options for Lesnar this impending title reign which can keep things fresh.

They got Strowman, Joe, a returning Balor, they've got Sheamus & Cesaro semi built up too, and they've got Kevin Owens there aswell, so plenty of options going forward.

Gotta admit it was a bit of a mark out moment to see Gillberg return LOL

I imagine Goldberg next week will respond in some part saying something like Gillberg isn't me, blah blah blah.

Still looks way too obvious a title change will be taking place.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Triple H get involved in this storyline to help Owens retain, much like he helped him take the title in the first place.

That would make sense as an option. As long as KO keeps the title i'm fine.....

Owens owned him on the mic. Not to the level he does in their Twitter exchanges, but it was still good.

Goldberg is long overdue a decent wrestling contest, but I don't hold out hope.

To be honest if this turns out to be another blink and you'll miss it Goldberg squash I can see the fans starting to turn on Bill. The quick win over Brock was fine as it was the start of a build to something and it provided shock value and put Goldberg over as a beast, but if it goes down much the same way against Owens I think fans will wise up to the fact that this lazy booking is being done to protect Goldberg because he's either not able or willing to work longer matches.

Not suggesting Goldberg and Owens put on a 30 minute clinic but surely a 10-15 minute match isn't asking too much. Owens can carry the match with Goldberg just running through his basic spots.

It's more or less certain Goldberg is winning, my gut feeling is that Chris Jericho will attack Owens or distract him leading to a quick victory for Goldberg, at least in that instance it will protect Owens a little.

Or if Jericho really does have Owens back and helps him retain and the whole turning on him at the friendship festival was a ruse. 

I doubt thats going to happen but if it does I wonder how the fans will react, while I would find it funny being a Jericholic I wonder what the smarks and arena crowd would make of it.
