Ask WNZ: Gold For Goldberg?

With the match official, it’s worth asking: will Goldberg leave Fastlane as the Universal Champion?

Dorathy Gass:

If the spoilers are true, then yes. Is it the way I’d book the match? Probably not. I’ve already written about this, but to be honest, I don’t think the Goldberg versus Lesnar program needs the Universal title – but – the JeriKO feud may. I also think that Kevin Owens has done a phenomenal job as champion as of late and deserves to walk into Wrestelmania 33 holding that gold. But, that’s just my opinion.

So, yes, Goldberg will probably win, but if I had my way, he wouldn’t!

John Deegan:

On one hand, I think he can and will. And part of me thinks it would be awesome.

But, then logic kicks in, and I think this could be a bad idea. Like, a really bad idea.

Why bad? Well, let’s see. Goldberg is a part-timer. Lesnar? Yeah, he’s a part-timer too. So, how on Earth is it really appealing to see one part-time guy challenge another part-time guy, to see who would hold the title and show up only on select shows? It isn’t. That, and Goldberg/Lesnar is a draw (in theory) regardless of titles. So, adding a belt isn’t needed.

For me, they let Goldberg win. But, at WM33, we get a Money In The Bank Ladder match, or some other match with a stipulation that allows someone to challenge the winner then and there. And so, while Goldberg or Lesnar could win the match and be champ, neither would leave Orlando as champion.

Joseph Lisnow:

It seems likely Goldberg will gain the title. Goldberg vs. Brock Lesnar and Kevin Owens vs. Chris Jericho seem like almost locks for WrestleMania. My issue, is the Goldberg-Lesanr feud doesn’t need the title. Here are two part-time wrestlers who as over as possible. Owens has done a wonderful job being champion after WWE needed to redo plans due to Finn Balor’s injury. He deserves to walk into WrestleMania with the title.

Watching how Owens interacts with fans on TV and social media, he’s probably none too happy about his title reign coming to an ended by Goldberg. I have a feeling Goldberg getting the title will be looked at as one of the major mistakes by WWE during the build for WrestleMania 33.

    The problem I see here is, they are trying to sell Oldberg like Lesnar, as even more of a beast, but Oldberg has always sucked, he’s more of a midcarder, if that…. my hate vs him dates all the way back to when he had his undefeated streak

    I would rather see lesnar come out and cost goldberg the belt. This would kind of even out the rumble elimination, so their feud will be sort of even heading into mania.

    As for jericho he can still interfere in said match above and all that i said can still happen, thus furthering 2 feuds.

    So u hav lesnar/goldberg in a real rubber match to end their feud. And you have owens/y2j for the universal belt or both titles

    Goldberg should win to keep WWE alive, Kevin Owens and Jericho has already ruined two major titles of Raw.
