Whispers of Goldberg’s return have been looming around the WWE universe ever since he appeared to have a connection with WWE 2k17. Just like when Sting made his return, it has now been revealed that Goldberg will return, to once again, face Brock Lesnar. Let’s re-examine Goldberg and see why this is exciting, and educate some of the youth. Why is WWE bringing back Goldberg:
Goldberg was WCW’s desperate answer for WWF’s toughest SOB on the planet, Stone Cold Steve Austin.
Listed at 6’4 and 266 lbs, Goldberg was comparable to any heavy weight in the industry. Memories of the beast who was almost unbeatable animal attract many old and new WWE fans for the spectacle of Brock Lesnar vs Goldberg. Brock has been booked as this unbeatable heavy weight who has not just beaten his opponents, but demoralized them. After WWE allowed Lesnar to bury John Cena, the company hasn’t been able to find a comparable heavy weight opponent to take down the mayor of Suplex City. Roman can’t get over, the Internet Wrestling Community has been sick of Cena for years, and the rest of the roster is just… too small in size when compared to Brock. Sure, the IWC loves technical wrestling. But WWE hasn’t made its millions on just one portion of fans. Lesnar is a destructive force, and he is about to face what appears to be another heavy weight who is capable of landing powerful moves and attracting the masses.
WWE needs a heavy weight with a name, and there is no name out there who is ready to fight that fits the profile better than Goldberg. You can their last match below:
I can’t say for certain if Goldberg vs Lesnar will even be a good match or not. But I can say that I will be thankful for my WWE Network subscription. Do you hate or love this match up? Let me know via twitter: @TPRx11
