Original Plan For Goldberg At WrestleMania, Edge vs Randy Orton Spot Garnering Backstage Heat



Goldberg was originally scheduled to face Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 36 this past weekend, but when the former World Champion dropped out of the match on health grounds, WWE scrambled to find a replacement for the Universal Championship match just days before it was pre-recorded.

Braun Strowman was the man who was chosen to be substituted in and interestingly was able to win his first World Championship following three running power slams. While this was a huge moment for The Monster Among Men, WrestleTalk is reporting that this wasn’t the original plan for Goldberg at the Showcase of the Immortals.

“WWE’s initial plan when they figured Roman wouldn’t be on the show was to have Goldberg retain. WWE wanted Goldberg to put over Roman Reigns, with this being the only reason he defeated The Fiend for the Universal Championship at Super ShowDown.”

Of course, there were other rumors that suggested that Goldberg was too expensive for WWE to bring back following WrestleMania, so they were left in a position where they were forced to put the Championship on Strowman, since Reigns was originally supposed to be victorious.

One match that was seemingly unaffected by the current COVID-19 pandemic was the Last Man Standing match between Randy Orton and Edge, which appeared to go ahead without any issues and allowed Edge to get the justice he deserved following the attack at the hands of Orton back in January.

One spot that Dave Meltzer brought up in the recent episode of The Wrestling Observer was the choking spot that the two men performed using the gym equipment which reportedly troubled a number of people within WWE. This was reportedly reminiscent of the way Chris Benoit committed suicide back in 2007 and since the former WWE star was recently in the news following the Dark Side of The Ring documentary, this was believed to be in poor taste.
