After all, nobody expected him not to plow through everybody he went up against during what we have to believe is the last round of spears and jackhammers in his wrestling career.
The big one will take place on April 2, 2017. It was Bayley's first pay-per-view title defense.
Remember, Wrestlemania isn't about making stars or the culmination of stories or even great matches anymore. Perhaps that paves the way for Bray Wyatt vs.
Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman (Winner: Braun Strowman). He is also a two-time WCW United States Champion and a one-time WCW World Tag Team Champion (w/Bret Hart). The Goldberg and Lesnar match may be a big draw for the casual fans that Vince McMahon likes to tempt back to the product around WrestleMania season, but it certainly didn't need the Universal Championship to elevate it. Goldberg came out the victor.
No one else has thrived against Lesnar the way Goldberg has.
Like many other superstars on the Raw roster, Rusev is stuck in mid-card purgatory. The pay-per-view will be headlined by the iconic Bill Goldberg who will challenge Kevin Owens for the WWE Universal Championship in the main event.
Yes, the main title on the Monday Night Raw brand will be defended by a part-timer against a fellow part-timer at the biggest show of the year. It's inevitable. Goldberg will enter WrestleMania as the Universal champion. The top matches are all but official, and most of the WrestleMania rumors have turned out to be true. Owens wouldn't get in the ring.
- WWE will have an exclusive look at how Seth Rollins' rehab is going. Granted, the latter is a heel but aren't these two supposed to be baby faces? The entire event wasn't bad per say but it could definitely be missed.
There's still plenty of time between now and WrestleMania for things to change.
Kevin Owens retained the Universal Championship at the Royal Rumble against Roman Reigns, and there was an open spot for his next challenger. Whether Jericho played a role in Owens' loss is irrelevant, but it would advance the rivalry.
It is still not confirmed whether or not Owens will get his rematch, but we will find it soon enough. Especially if Jericho, being United States Champion, would be left as the only one of the two with a belt to his name. Nikki has already gotten in Maryse's way at Elimination Chamber in a backstage segment and Cena and Miz have a long history together. The belt hasn't even been around for a year and I expect Charlotte to win it for the sixth time. Ambrose was able to eliminate Corbin via roll-up and it drove Corbin into a frenzy.
Shaq and Big Show off?
"We're excited to bring this event back to Orlando", creepy Florida Governor Rick "Skeletor" Scott said in a press release when this was announced. An incredibly gifted athlete and performer with that iconic Flair style and look, it's really hard to make the case for Bayley or Banks being that much better overall wrestling-wise.
