Last night, Bill Goldberg did the unthinkable, and beat Brock Lesnar.
The reason that this was so significant, is because Lesnar has been marketed as THE BEAST since he came back to WWE in 2012, and even conquered The Undertaker’s historic undefeated Wrestlemania streak.
To have Goldberg come back after a 12 year absence and beat Lesnar in under two minutes speaks volumes about what WWE could be doing with Goldberg – yet also makes you wonder what they’re going to do with Lesnar now.
Needless to say, Twitter was ablaze last night (still is) with wrestlers (current and former) all offering their opinions:
Stunned. Absolutely stunned.#SurviorSeries

The shock is wearing off. The anger is kicking in. All that hype. The Lesnar streak. Utter nonsense. #SurvivorSeries
