Tomorrow will mark a historical main event match in the WWE. The reigning Universal Champion, Kevin Owens will defend his title against the former WCW franchise and a first ballad future Hall of Famer, Goldberg. This will mark his first-ever title match in nearly 13 years. The last time he has been one was at Armageddon 2003 against Kane and Triple H in a triple threat match.
Now, all the betting odds for Fastlane are favoring Goldberg claiming that he is guaranteed to become a champion in the company again. If there’s no recent change in WWE creative planning then there’s no way that Owens is walking out as champion.
Furthermore, reports from wrestlingINC.com suggested that Chris Jericho will make his presence felt during this matchup. It was since the attack from Owens that we have not seen him on Raw. He is said to make his return at the expense of KO’s Universal title. The distraction caused by Jericho should be the reason why Goldberg will get an easy win on tonight’s main event.
But, Owens is still going at his peak when it comes to verbally blasting Goldberg. He appeared in an interview with ESPN.com where he claimed that his opponent is not ready for the championship match. Here were his comments when asked about Goldberg’s chances in the match:
“I’ll answer this as honestly as I can, because that’s always the way I do things, and that answer is ‘No.’ Because, see, ya know, anybody who’s followed Goldberg’s career, or even people who haven’t followed Goldberg’s career and have only been familiar with him for the last two or three months since he’s been back in WWE, guess what? You’ve already seen everything Goldberg can do.
You’ve seen a spear, you’ve seen a jackhammer. That’s pretty much where it ends, but I’ve been here for about two years, and yet, I’ve only scratched the surface of what I can do and the people who have followed me, throughout my entire career, before I got to WWE will tell you that’s a fact. So, I don’t think Goldberg is ready for the kind of the main event that I’m going to bring to him at Fastlane, absolutely not.”
After holding the Universal title for over six long months, it’s finally the time for Owens to drop it to the Myth unless WWE arranges a surprise Brock Lesnar appearance to cost him the match.
