WWE has lined up some exciting matches for Survivor Series 2016, including a fight between Brock Lesnar and Bill Goldberg as the latter returns to the ring after a 12-year hiatus. The two superstars last fought in 2004 at WrestleMania 20, where the former WCW and WWE heavyweight champion defeated the Beast Incarnate.
Goldberg and Brock Lesnar are prepared to blow the roof off the Air Canada Centre. There is some trepidation that their Survivor Series rematch may be a repeat of their WrestleMania XX fiasco, but circumstances couldn’t be any different, and their stars couldn’t be any brighter.
Survivor Series 2016, however, may be another story. Let’s admit it — expectations are lower, now that Goldberg is a month shy of 50 and Lesnar is a part-time performer. Few people are expecting a classic hoss match at Survivor Series. It’s going to be about a second chance for both men to get it right, and it’s going to be about nostalgia, with a big name from WCW and WWE’s past returning to face one of WWE’s biggest attractions of the present.
