Backstage News on a Goldberg vs. Lesnar Rematch

Nov 21, 2016 - by Steve Gerweck

Dave Meltzer reported on Wrestling Observer Radio that Goldberg will definitely work with Brock Lesnar again in a rematch from last night’s Survivor Series pay-per-view, where Goldberg defeated Lesnar in an 86 second match.

Meltzer noted that the deal was put together within the past week, and it was something that Lesnar and others pushed for. It was noted that Lesnar saw money in a Goldberg program and didn’t want to end it with one match, and Vince McMahon apparently saw that as well.

As for why the WWE match was so short, Meltzer noted that it wasn’t because of Goldberg being hurt. He said the match was changed to get Goldberg over once he agreed to stay, and the decision was made to do a short match like his short WCW matches that got him over in the first place.”
