Paul Heyman appeared on tonight’s Monday Night Raw along with his client Brock Lesnar, and threw down a challenge for Goldberg at WrestleMania 33 in Orlando come this March. After losing to Goldberg in very quick fashion at last years Survivor Series and being eliminated by him in under 2 minutes during last nights Royal Rumble match, Lesnar wants to “even the score” with Goldberg at the show of shows.
This will end up being a very odd of case of not just a WrestleMania rematch, but one that is occurring 13 years after the original match. Lesnar and Goldberg faced off at WrestleMania 20 in 2004, which was the last match for both men before they parted ways from the company. The crowd at Madison Square Garden knew this, and made an already not-so-good match even worse by verbally crapping all over it throughout its entire duration. Special guest referee “Stone Cold” Steve Austin even gave a Stone Cold Stunner to the eventual winner, Goldberg, after sharing a celebratory beer with him in the middle of the ring. I have a lot of hope that this match doesn’t turn out the same way…..besides, it’s not like either of them have gotten any younger since then (but don’t let Brock Lesnar hear me saying that…..or Goldberg for that matter….).
