Goldberg has accepted the Paul Heyman’s challenge to come out of retirement to face Brock Lesnar in one final battle.
All will be revealed on tonight’s edition of Monday Night Raw – live on Sky Sports 5 at 1am – as the Goldberg delivers a response to Lesnar.
Kevin Owens, Seth Rollins, and Chris Jericho will contest a triple threat. Jericho and Owens or "Jeri-KO" (as they are jointly known) may team up to decline Rollins before he challenges Owens for WWE Universal Title inside Hell in a Cell on Sunday night.
However, after a last week incident – Owen’s interference led to Jericho losing to Rollins, fans are confused if the pals will be able to team up or not.
Additionally, Sheamus and Cesaro will challenge Raw Tag Team Champions, The New Day, in a non-title match, a matter of days before they fight for the belts at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view.
Sami Zayn will also aim to admit to ending Raw monster Strowman’s winning line, while Charlotte and Sasha Banks will prepare for the first-ever Women’s Hell in a Cell encounter this weekend.
WWE continues to present Lesnar as one more myth than as a man, a destructive being like no other. Revitalizing his rivalry with Goldberg will carry on that.
Media buzz is perhaps popping around Goldberg now, however, this story will end up being more about Brock, adding one more chapter to his unique story. Lesnar and Goldberg clashed at WrestleMania XX before both left WWE.
Lesnar barreled back into Vince McMahon’s carnival of violence back in 2012. Goldberg didn’t make a comeback until this year, when on 17th October, the former WCW champ appeared on Raw to agree Lesnar’s challenge.
The encounter is now expected to take place on November 20 at the Survivor Series pay-per-view.
Goldberg vs. Lesnar is yet another massive match & headlining contest for The Beast Incarnate. It doesn’t matter that he is not a part of Raw’s everyday plots. When he steps back onto WWE stage, he will be everyone’s center of attraction.
As Goldberg, Lesnar is a top predator on WWE food chain. WWE’s choice to have return match of Goldberg against Lesnar perpetuates the idea that The Beast Incarnate is an immortal, who tangles with only immortals.
When issuing the challenge to Goldberg, Paul Heyman, Lesnar’s manager sold the fight as something has been eating his client. He told his fans that the fact is Goldberg beat him in 2004. He added, “The one thing that unhinges my beast.”
