Backstage News On Goldberg vs. Brock Lesnar, Why Their Match At Survivor Series Was So Short

Goldberg vs. Brock Lesnar

It took only 1-minute and 24-seconds for Goldberg to dominate his match against Brock Lesnar, defeating “The Beast Incarnate” with two Spears and a Jackhammer and positively stunning fans.

After a 12-year hiatus from competition, Goldberg proved that he hasn’t lost a single step. With his wife and young son watching him compete live for the first time ever, the proud husband and father avenged his family after weeks of insults from Lesnar and his advocate, Paul Heyman.

On the post-Survivor Series edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said there will be a rematch.

Lesnar pushed for the multi-match contract Goldberg apparently signed in the past week, and the quick beating was put together to make the WCW icon look as good as possible for future matches against Lesnar.

Lesnar reportedly wanted more than one date with Goldberg because he sees their rivalry as a big money feud, and Vince McMahon apparently agrees. Once everyone was on the same page with that, and a new deal inked with Goldberg, the decision was made to do the squash match. It was apparently done to mirror the kind of matches which got Goldberg over back in his WCW glory days in order to maximize his appeal for the rematch and not because of any injury he’d suffered, as was rumored.

Still no word on when exactly the Goldberg vs. Lesnar trilogy match will take place. Reports indicate the next wrestling appearance from Goldberg will be his second appearance in the Royal Rumble Match.
