As if the long-awaited mega rematch between Goldberg and Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 33 wasn’t already big enough, the stakes have been heightened following Goldberg’s triumph at WWE Fastlane.
Now, The Beast Incarnate is out for not only redemption on Sunday, April 2, but also Goldberg’s newly won Universal Championship.
Despite his world-beater bona fides, The Conqueror has never defeated his decorated opponent. Indeed, Goldberg has had Lesnar’s number since the first time they locked horns, at WrestleMania XX. After more than a decade away from WWE, Goldberg returned last fall and destroyed Lesnar in shocking fashion at Survivor Series, thrashing The Conqueror in one minute and 26 seconds.
Lesnar’s advocate, Paul Heyman, chalked up the loss to The Beast taking Goldberg too lightly and nothing more. Yet at Royal Rumble, Goldberg enjoyed the upper hand again, eliminating Lesnar from the event’s eponymous 30-Superstar brawl.
While offering his “congratulations” to the newly crowned Universal Champion, The Beast Incarnate sent a painful message to his WrestleMania opponent.
No one else has thrived against Lesnar the way Goldberg has. Lesnar, a four-time WWE Champion, has carved out a career of destruction. Among his many accomplishments since returning to WWE in 2012, Lesnar ended The Undertaker’s once unbreakable WrestleMania Streak, demolished John Cena and bludgeoned Randy Orton to the point of referee stoppage.
Goldberg, however, has proven to be an unbeatable foe, so far.
Will Lesnar’s luck change when he battles Goldberg for Raw’s top championship, at WWE’s biggest event of the year, no less? Or can Goldberg further cement his incredible legacy, putting an exclamation point on his career with another victory against The Beast?
Prediction…yes, I am afraid to say it’s happening round three of a one-on-one fuck-fest is set for WrestleMania, just what we always wanted, after all the matches these two have promised the fans being a compete let down, I see no evidence that this match won’t be the same.
And to be honest I don’t give a shit, the WWE has given nothing for us fans to invest in between these two I honestly don’t care if I win my prediction, so with that said for the sake of a prediction I pick Brock Lesnar – mainly because as Goldberg has won everything else between them Lesnar has to get one win at some point
