Goldberg returns this Sunday at WWE Survivor Series to take on Brock Lesnar in a rematch of their 2004 encounter at WrestleMania XX, while three Raw vs Smackdown team matches promise to deliver an unpredictable night at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto.
In what has been 12 years in the making, Goldberg makes his WWE in-ring return to take on Lesnar, having beaten The Beast Incarnate in their only previous encounter. Lesnar will have Paul Heyman at ringside, while Goldberg is almost certain to have his family watching on for the first time in his career.
The veterans fighting for the first time after their battle at WrestleMania 20 in 2014 is hands down, the headliner of the pay-per-view (PPV). Questions might be asked as to why the mega rematch isn’t happening in the grandest stage of WWE, the WrestleMania. With WrestleMania 33 taking place in 2017, many would have surely expected the fight to take place in Ontario, Florida.
However, over the decades, we’ve seen that the likes of Survivor Series, SummerSlam and Royal Rumble have almost reached the level of WrestleMania and cannot be ruled as a not-so-great WWE PPV.
