The hype has been building for months for the Goldberg vs Brock Lesnar match at WWE Survivor Series, and they didn’t disappoint us.
The pay-per-view main event lasted just two minutes, with Lesnar never getting out of the blocks. He pushed Goldberg into the corner, and then spent the rest of the match curled up in a ball of pain, with the Paulrus sniveling for mercy at ringside.
Goldberg delivered not one, not two, but THREE of his patented spears before jackhammering Lesnar so hard, he’s probably crawling into his mother’s lap as we speak.
No one saw this outcome in the cards. It was expected to be a hard-fought match, most likely with Lesnar winning, because the WWE likes to pretend he’s invincible. But they finally came to their senses on this night, and gave their millions of fans exactly what they wanted to see.
Watch this amazing match below:
The last time these two behemoths faced off was WrestleMania XX, in 2004. A lot has changed since then – especially Lesnar’s skill level and appearance. He’s noticeably thicker and slower than the phenomenal specimen he was a decade ago. Goldberg, on the other hand, apparently stepped into a time machine. He was every bit as fired-up and ready to kick ass as he ever was, spurred on by the overwhelming acceptance of the fans, as well as the presence of his family. After the stunning victory, he brought his young son into the ring to share in a moment that last occurred before he was born.
Call it scripted all you like. You wouldn’t be wrong. But this was such a triumphant moment for a legendary superstar, that I see it as a legit Match of the Year contender. (Don’t worry, I’ll be back to gloat on Slammy night.)
