It’s been twelve years in the making. Brock Lesnar and Bill Goldberg stood in the same WWE ring, days ahead of their highly anticipated ‘Survivor Series’ match. It was a vicious war of words that resulted with…Brock backing down? Click to watch.
The entire WWE Universe was on its feet during the Nov. 14 episode of RAW, when Bill, 51, stood on one side of the ring and Brock, 39, (along with his advocate, Paul Heyman, 51) stood on the other. Unfortunately, a line of security guards separated the two men, hopefully to keep these two Superstars from coming to blows before their WrestleMania 20 rematch at Survivor Series on Nov. 20.
“These brave men, sir, for your protection, Mr. Goldberg,” Paul said, before rattling the names of The Undertaker, 51, and John Cena, 39, two men that Brock has easily defeated. Goldberg wasn’t impressed, as he said his name “wasn’t on [that] list.”
From there, things got personal. “I heard last week what you said about my family,” Bill said, referencing Brock telling Bill’s son and wife not to watch Survivor Series so they’re spared the gruesome sight of “The Beast” demolishing their husband and father. Uh-oh. That seemed to give Paul an opening, as he continued to agitate the man who ruled World Championship Wrestling.
“Let me spell this out for you. You shall be beaten, victimized and conquered by Brock Lesnar, to such an extent,” Paul said, “that you sir, will be unrecognizable that your son will call Brock Lesnar ‘Daddy.'”
That was the final straw. Goldberg then went through the security staff, one-by-one, until there was no one standing between him and “The Beast.” The WWE Universe exploded when they though they’d see these two finally lock up and fight, but Brock did something he doesn’t normally do – he backed away from a fight.
Seems fans will have to wait until Survivor Series. That’s when they’ll see the conclusion of this feud that seemed to start over a video game. Ever since Goldberg was named as an exclusive feature of WWE 2k17, a game that has Brock on the cover, these two have bickered and taken shots at each other. It finally came down to Brock challenging Bill and for Goldberg to return to the WWE to accept the match. Now, everyone’s eagerly waiting to see if Brock will even the score between him and Bill, or if Goldberg will go 2-0 over “The Beast.”
Who do you think will win the match at Survivor Series, HollywoodLifers? Brock or Bill?
