There was months of build-up, loads of money, and emphatic anticipation for Goldberg vs Brock Lesnar, but... it was over in two minutes. I'm sure a lot us can actually relate to that scenario, however, it doesn't make it any less disappointing.
The return of the 49-year-old former world champ seemed like desperation from WWE, bringing in a seasoned veteran who hasn't wrestled in 12 years to get a big draw to a pay-per-view.
Bill Goldberg came back to the squared circle still looking jacked, which led many to believe that his match with The Beast Incarnate would be a destructive war. It was going to be the coming together of the immovable object and an unstoppable force, a tornado meeting a volcano. But it was nothing of the sort.
Lesnar tried to burst out of the blocks early, forcing Goldberg into a corner. However, Suplex City was invaded when his opponent shoved him to the ground and then landed two spears and a massive Jackhammer. All that was left was for the ref to count one, two, three.
If you think that Trumps victory over Hillary was the biggest upset this year, you need to watch Brock Lesnar vs Goldberg

Goldberg forgot to turn unlimited finishers off. #SurvivorSeries #BrockvsGoldberg

Not for nothing, but in all of my #WCW matches against @Goldberg I put up a better fight than @BrockLesnar did. Just sayin..

Goldberg's son was on his feet in the ring longer than Lesnar was #SurvivorSeries @joe_alfeo @_TunnelSnake_

When you play Here Comes The Pain and your opponent sneakily gives themselves three finishers before the match. #Goldbergvsbrock

The good news is that, because such a big match ended this quickly, there's probably more to come from Goldberg in WWE over the next year or so.
This will either be the beginning of a great feud between two powerhouses, culminating at Wrestlemania 33, or the gateway to another massive rivalry for Goldberg.
