I was surprised Owens got protected as he did to the point he can blame his loss on Jericho showing up. Glad but surprised. Looking forward to him and Jericho finishing off their story well with what could be the MOTN.


Is it really the money match? Will anyone actually attend or pay for mania because of Goldberg v lesnar? WWE might think they will but I don't think it's actually generating any buzz.

I've still yet to see a match that has any buzz leading into Mania.

Wider audience might for Goldberg. "I remember that guy!" People only attend Wrestlemania because it's Wrestlemania, tickets go on sale way before any matches are announced

That Exit Wounds WCPW event in Newcastle that they're streaming on YouTube for free is just starting for those interested. Features Cody Rhodes, Drew Galloway and Will Ospreay. Sorry I can't link it at the moment, but it's on What Culture Wrestling's channel.

There are currently more dislikes (13,000) than Likes (9000) on the Goldberg/Lesnar match on YouTube.

I do hope nobody ordered the show on Sky Box Office for the main. :slol:

I guess there's two ways to look at that. He knows he's innocent and has a dark sense of humour about it...or he's doing a Jimmy Saville and is practically flaunting it in everyone's face.

I'd say Lesnar vs Goldberg is a terrible main that will generate next to no additional money. But WWE fans will buy the event anyway, so if some people sign up to the network because of Goldberg (and if they have already used their free trial, and don't watch it at a friend's instead) WWE might make an extra bit of money.

To be honest I think the brand split has diluted everyone to the point there is no "big match" you can have as main event. So it'll be Lesnar/Goldberg because we'll (hopefully) never see it again.

The brand split has been awful for the tag titles on both shows and the women's division on Raw.

I think New Day should break up at 'Mania, have Xavier or Big E turn on the other 2, they've run their course and with Cass and Enzo doing there thing 1 comedy tag team is enough.
I have a feeling Goldberg could get booed out of the building tonight after that gooseberry fool show at Fastlane.

I can see this Lesnar/Goldberg match being something like Spear, Jackhammer, Kick-Out, F5, Kick-Out, F5, Kick-Out, F5, Kick-Out, F5, win.

The Universal Championship now probably only going to be defended twice over the course of the next 3 months...so much for the 30 day rule (which they used recently to strip Naomi of the title).

Wow wwe have really cocked up. The crowd are very into Owens and Jericho. Great reactions to the opening segment The main event of mania should have been Owens v Jericho title v title. Not putting the universal title on Goldberg. Goldberg v lesnar didn't need the title.

If you read her Instagram she sometimes seems quite sad. Braun Strowman meanwhile is a classic Southern boy.

I thought the build up and card for last year's WrestleMania was bad, but this year's is even worse. Genuinely couldn't give a strawberry float about any of it, didn't even bother watching Fast Lane.

I can see a title change happening on the Raw after 'Mania this year, they've come to realise that show is bigger than a lot of their PPVs. I can't see Lesnar having another long, hardly ever there, title run, and if WWE are mental and go for a big unexpected shock and have Goldberg win, he'd have to lose it the next night because he's hardly sticking around. Maybe hold back on Balor returning to beat Lesnar or have new heel bastard Roman Reigns beat Goldberg.

KO wins the US title at mania and then decides to invoke his rematch against lesnar at the next ppv.
