During WWE’s Sunday night event, Goldberg defeated Brock Lesnar in the main event match. After months and months of hype the match lasted about five minutes and was over after Goldberg hit the “Jackhammer”. Taz had some interesting thoughts from his special on Sunday night.
“I’ll tell you what, I thought the Goldberg gimmick was going to be one and done jones. I thought they would just use him to hype up the videogame (WWE 2k17).”
Taz is shocked that Brock Lesnar did not win this match because of the fact that he is a staple in the WWE Universe. Goldberg has not fought in a match in 12 years and comes back to beat the top star.
There are many ways the WWE can take the story because as Taz says, “Goldberg has his number”. The result from this match leaves a lot of questioning as to what the remaining major events will look like for these two wrestlers.
“I thought maybe they were going to go to the Royal Rumble and do a one-on-one match again with Brock and Goldberg. Brock gets his receipt and finally gets the monkey off his back.”
The WWE could look to point out the fact that Brock can’t beat Goldberg and maybe even continue the storyline going into the much larger events of next year. This could be the next John Cena-Rock battle, where the current face of the WWE takes on a former face of the brand.
Taz closed his segment by reiterating, “I truly thought it was just to build up that videogame and then just be done.”
