Blink and you’ll miss it. Back in 2016, Goldberg returned to WWE and decided that it was time for one last run. This included defeating Brock Lesnar in a shocking win at “Survivor Series 2016” and then an appearance in the 2017 Royal Rumble. After those performances, next up was a run at another World Title, with Goldberg’s shot coming against Kevin Owens at “Fastlane 2017”.

WWE has posted the full version of Goldberg vs. Owens on its YouTube page. The match, which didn’t even break thirty seconds, saw Goldberg hit a spear and a Jackhammer to win the title, setting up his title match at “Wrestlemania XXXIII” against Brock Lesnar. The match is one of the shortest World Title changes in history and the fastest in Universal Title history.

Opinion: I’m still not happy with the way this went down as the same story could have been told between Goldberg and Lesnar without the title being involved. Either way, Goldberg winning the title here may have been exciting, but it wasn’t the most logical thing in the world.

Want more from da man? Of course you do.
