5 Reasons why Goldberg should defeat Brock Lesnar
Last Monday night on WWE RAW, Goldberg made his return to the WWE ring and answered Brock Lesnar’s challenge to a fight. Goldberg entered to a roaring ovation and was clearly overcome with emotion, and of course, he told Denver and the entire WWE Universe that he was accepting the challenge. Brock is not only next, but Brock is last!
While it is being rumoured that Goldberg might be setup to lose at Survivor Series at the hands of Brock Lesnar, let’s take a look at a few reasons why that might not actually be true and why it would make more sense for Goldberg to actually be winning this much-awaited match against the Beast Incarnate.
#5 Wins and losses matter, but not as much as you think
Take this example as an important point in the discussion: Brock Lesnar defeated The Undertaker at WrestleMania XXX to end The Streak.
Everybody and their grandmother expected that when Undertaker eventually lost a match at WrestleMania, it would be to an up-and-coming guy, or any younger star in general, who could use the huge win as a stepping stone to greater things. Instead, WWE gave the win to Lesnar, who certainly didn’t need the boost.
Also, remember that in Brock’s very first match back after 8 years away from the business, John Cena defeated him clean as a freshly laundered sheet. Did that destroy Lesnar’s momentum? Did it make him ineffective for the rest of his time in WWE?
No, it did not. He went on to destroy a bunch of other guys and became arguably the most important guy on the entire roster. Goldberg is coming back to take one last stand.
WWE loves to give crowds a feel-good moment, and the emotional return of Goldberg on last week’s RAW sets him up to emphasize how hard he is training and how much he wants to be a superhero to the kids just one last time. Especially to prove to his son and he can still be the Goldberg that his son never got to witness.
