5 reasons Goldberg winning the Rumble would be bad for business

Goldberg beating Lesnar was a mistake, him winning the Royal Rumble would be an even bigger mistake!

The man, and everyone else, are better off without him winning the Royal Rumble

The fans think it will happen, the dirt sheets are speculating and the odds look favourable, apparently Goldberg is going to win this year’s Royal Rumble, unfortunately.

After making a shocking WWE return after 12 years in the wilderness, Goldberg has somehow rocketed straight to the top of the mountain and no one can seemingly stop him.

The former WCW Champion looks set to have a date with the main event of Wrestlemania 33, how he gets there is up to Vince, but I sure as hell hope he doesn't get there through winning the Rumble. I can't begin to explain to you how bad it would be if Goldberg won the Royal Rumble, but I'm going to at least try.

Here are 5 reasons why Goldberg winning the Rumble would be bad for business.


#5 He and Lesnar have unfinished business

While Goldberg left for 12 years, Lesnar dominated the UFC and WWE

There's nothing wrestling fans hate more than an unfinished storyline. We know Goldberg is overall 2-0 up on Brock Lesnar, we also know that that's not how things end in the WWE. There's no way the WWE will deprive one of their most prized assets a chance at reversing his lopsided win-loss record.

We all know the two will continue their feud soon, so why not have it done OUTSIDE of the title picture. Use the rumble match as a way to further develop their storyline, without having Goldberg shamefully win it.
