The encounter between Goldberg and Brock Lesnar was decided much prior to Wrestlemania. But, it was converted into a championship match after Goldberg won the Universal championship from Kevin Owens at Fastlane. It means that the third and final clash between them will be the main event of the biggest event of the year.
Ever since this match was announced, there have been some rumors speculating the duration of the match. There are some serious concerns over Goldberg’s inability to perform in a lengthy match considering his age. In recent times, there’s been some major fan backlash over WWE putting the title on his shoulder. The fans do not even want to see the rematch between these two behemoths.
A report from Wrestling Observer Newsletter has thrown some lights over the outcome of the match. It said that the contest could last around just ten minutes going in contrast to the lengthy Wrestlemania main events, over the years.
It will further help to get over Brock Lesnar by pinning Goldberg. The Myth has been booked as an unstoppable force ever since returning to the WWE so that Lesnar can regain his previous ‘beast incarnate’ image once Wrestlemania is done.
WWE is also booking Lesnar to give him a major push during the post-Wrestlemania season. In the recent live events, he had dominated the Big Show for multiple occasions. Also, on the MSG house show, he decimated the former Universal champion, Kevin Owens.
So, it is almost guaranteed that he will win the prime championship on the flagship show at Wrestlemania by putting on a dominant performance. A report from 434.com confirmed that Goldberg’s contract with WWE will expire on April 2nd i.e. on the day of Wrestlemania upon which he will leave the company. The plans of letting Brock Lesnar winning the gold will be kept intact unless Goldberg signs a new deal with the company.
