Brock Lesnar has been seen in a WWE ring, having put on his signature black pants and yellow boots. it has been reported that brock is set to return to the octagon later this year at ufc 200, for a fight with mark hunt.
It’s fair to say that brock lesnar’s reputation as a “wrestler” precedes him when mention is made of his mixed martial arts foray or possible return. However, during brock Lesnar’s first run in the ufc he was undefeated and became known as one of the most dominant fighters on earth.
Goldberg, on the other hand, became an overnight sensation in professional wrestling when he kicked off his historic 173 match win streak. While Goldberg’s run is often derided because of the opponents he beat up, it cannot be taken away how much excitement Goldberg was able to drum up with his limited move set and limited charisma.
After brock Lesnar defeated undertaker at Wrestlemania 30 he received a call from WWE owner Vince McMahon offering him one last chance at Goldberg before his contract expired. This would be an epic clash between two men who were both undefeated in their respected sports, but only one man could emerge victoriously, who would it be?
Brock Lesnar – The Beast Incarnate
Brock Lesnar is a WWE Superstar. He has been part of the company since he was signed in 2000, but most famously known for his time from 2002 – 2004 where he became heavyweight champion at age 25 and the youngest ever to do so. Many also know him from his most recent run from 2012 until Wrestlemania 31 where he defeated the Undertaker.
Goldberg is Back
Goldberg is a former WCW star who worked from 1997 to 2004, where he became the biggest thing in wrestling during that time after defeating Hollywood Hogan for the title. After his undefeated 173-0 streak ended at Wrestlemania 20 it took him 10 years before returning to a WWE ring.
The biggest match of 2016 is here
Today both men faced each other in one of the most anticipated matches of 2016, and what happened next was unexpected by many while being exactly what everyone wanted to see happen next.
When push comes to shove, Goldberg is arguably the greatest wrestler of all time considering he beat everyone put in front of him without any losses.
Brock’s first run was impressive but many forget how undersized he is for a heavyweight let alone a beast incarnate. Brock may be a great athlete but his wrestling skills are severely lacking compared to some of todays.
Both Brock Lesnar and Bill Goldberg got their shots in while throwing around powerbombs and spears, but when all was said and done, Bill Goldberg picked up the victory over Brock Lesnar.
Who won brock lesnar or goldberg
Some may have been disappointed with this result as it gave no titles or stories to the current WWE landscape, but what it did do was finally give closure to Brock Lesnar’s career in wrestling.
This match didn’t need stories, titles, or rematches. It was a “passing of the torch” moment for Bill Goldberg and Brock Lesnar that gave closure to fans who wanted to see their favorite wrestlers face each other one last time. On top of that WWE is rumored to be planning on bringing back Goldberg (and quite possibly Sting) at next year’s Wrestlemania which has many people excited with speculation on how great these two legends would look like headlining another Wrestlemania card.
So while some might say this match was an epic failure there were more than enough positives out of it that will lead towards future potential rather than leaving us with a sour taste as we head towards the new year.
