The WWE for the past several weeks has flirted with the possibility of a mega match between Brock Lesnar and Goldberg. This had come to fruition with Goldberg make his return to the program last week after a nearly 13-year hiatus. In light of that, the WWE has finally set a date for the match.

There had been various reports stating that the two would face off at the pay-per-view event next month. The fact that it’s the main event match is interesting but shows how much the WWE is trying to push it. Although it’s an expected move, it isn’t necessarily the right one given that Goldberg hasn’t wrestled in a match for over a decade so there’s no telling of what kind of match he can put on.
That said, there’s also a chance that these two put on a great performance in the ring that’s worthy of being a main event match and leave the fans wanting more. This is the route the WWE is hoping to go with these two legends. Ultimately, it’s something that we will all have to wait and see.
