Ever since it was announced that the Mayor of Suplex City was going to be the cover star of WWE 2K17 and Bill Goldberg was revealed as a pre-order bonus, there have been rumblings as to whether we could see the two behemoths tangle once again inside a WWE ring.
As alluring as it might be to pit two of the most intimidating forces in the history of professional wrestling in the virtual world, more than subtle hints have been dropped by the men in question themselves that they wouldn’t mind strangling each other in the squared circle if the opportunity presented itself.
Interestingly enough, a major development regarding this story broke out yesterday that Bill Goldberg’s WWE return is set in stone and a potential Goldberg vs Lesnar match is imminent and could happen as soon as Survivor Series to be held on 20th November.
Now this won’t be the first time we will see these two individuals slugging it out but this time, this could definitely be something special provided WWE plays their cards right. Here are 3 reasons why I think Goldberg vs Lesnar II will not be a bust.
#3 A greater incentive to deliver
The first encounter between the two was a debacle and for a good reason. Fans were largely disinterested and incensed after news leaked days prior to the pay per view that both the competitors were on their way out. Their anger was compounded by the fact that both Goldberg and Lesnar didn’t even pretend to care nor did they put in a speck of effort.
This time, however, it could be a little different. Goldberg has mentioned time and time again that one of his biggest incentives to lace up a pair of boots is to show his son what he ‘used to do’.
If not for anything else, Goldberg will try more than his best to put on a show for his little one. Both individuals have been largely vocal about wanting to clash against each other inside a squared circle and there’s no reason for a lack of desire.
Besides, as long as Brock Lesnar gets paid handsomely he will do just about anything possible inside the 20 X 20 ring and do it believably which leaves the fans wanting more.
