Goldberg defeated Kevin Owens
The new WWE Universal Champion will face the ex-UFC star in the main event of WrestleMania 33 at the Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida on April 2.
At 50, Goldberg’s comeback has garnered huge nostalgic buzz for the WWE
The victory also raised Goldberg’s in-ring time to a combined 5:07 in three matches, including his initial return at Survivor Series against Brock Lesnar and follow-up appearance at the Royal Rumble.
Putting the title on the line in Goldberg’s rematch with Lesnar at WrestleMania certainly adds prestige to a marquee match with crossover appeal. But one has to question the worth of the means it took to get there.
Fastlane also suffered from the fallout of what happens when your main event is less than 30 seconds long. A pair of last-minute (and meaningless) matches were added that only bogged down the show, making it feel much more like an episode of Raw.
