Brock Lesnar And Goldberg To Appear In WWE Royal Rumble, Rematch Likely For WrestleMania 33
November 22, 2016 - WWE
Brock Lesnar and Goldberg will enter a WWE Royal Rumble and are approaching to face any other in a Survivor Series rematch during WrestleMania 33.
After Goldberg suggested on this week’s part of Raw that he’d be entering a 30-man Royal Rumble, Pro Wrestling Sheet reports that “The Beast” will follow in his footsteps:
Multiple sources endorse that Brock Lesnar has been requisitioned for a Alamodome on Jan 29th for a Rumble.
According to F4WOnline.com (h/t WrestlingInc), Lesnar’s further a Rumble compare is, not surprisingly, directly associated to Goldberg’s coming in a bout:
Bill Goldberg got a “real large income deal” for this past Sunday’s Survivor Series compare opposite Brock Lesnar. As for Goldberg’s new understanding with WWE, Meltzer pronounced that Goldberg is peaceful to combat for that volume as mostly as Vince McMahon wants him to, so it’s adult to Vince on how many times he wants to use him. So Goldberg’s appearances going brazen seem to be open-ended as prolonged as WWE is peaceful to accommodate his price.
Meltzer combined that WWE is looking during a Goldberg vs. Lesnar rematch during WrestleMania. He speculated that Lesnar competence meddle in The Royal Rumble match, causing Goldberg to be eliminated.
The 2017 WWE Royal Rumble is returning to a Alamodome for a initial time in 20 years, and a final time a PPV was hold during a San Antonio Stadium, more than 60,000 fans attended a show. WWE is positively anticipating to tip that this year, that is expected because both Lesnar and Goldberg are being brought in to assistance a initial PPV of a new year container a star energy punch.
But maybe only as critical is WWE’s enterprise to build to Goldberg vs. Lesnar III and a devise to use a Royal Rumble compare to do that.
Though one could disagree that WWE would be improved served carrying Lesnar and Goldberg face up-and-coming stars (like, let’s say, Lesnar vs. Samoa Joe and Goldberg vs. Roman Reigns) during ‘Mania, it’s tough to suppose a ancestral Goldberg/Lesnar argument finish with Goldberg’s shockingly unilateral feat during Survivor Series.
While carrying Lesnar kick Goldberg during WrestleMania 33 would still meant he’d be down 2-1 in their series, WWE’s proof seems to be that Lesnar needs to order his punish on Goldberg and that a grand theatre of WrestleMania is a ideal height to do only that.
Given WWE Network’s unsatisfactory subscriber count, it appears as if a artistic group is relying once again on determined part-time attractions to spin things around, and if Lesnar vs. Goldberg brought in some-more viewers during Survivor Series, a wish is that they can do it a second time for WrestleMania 33.
