Goldberg will challenge “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt for the Universal Championship just two weeks from now at WWE Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia.
The title match can go both ways although The Fiend is the odds-on favorite to emerge victorious over The Myth in The Kingdom.
According to Tom Colohue, the fact that Goldberg was granted his match against Dolph Ziggler to help him restore his legendary status after his horrendous performance against The Undertaker could be a decisive factor for The Myth’s upcoming match against The Fiend.
“Goldberg wanted his match against Dolph Ziggler. He got his match, but I suspect part of getting that match also depended on a little bit of negotiation about how he would then go out for his next match.”
“Goldberg matches don’t last very long..I don’t think it would be two mins, I think it would be more like 5 or maybe 6. Bray Wyatt may take, maybe a couple more spears, and just keep getting up because that seems to be the mo, Goldberg will probably take a little more beating than one Sister Abigail.“
As previously reported, both Goldberg and The Fiend are being considered as potential opponents for the returning John Cena at WrestleMania 36. The Champ could either wrestle a singles match against the veteran legend or dethrone the masked monster to claim his 17th World Title on April 5th.
“It’s going to be quite brief, quite conclusive, and really, this is a very good thing for the Fiend because there aren’t really any more good guys to run over on SmackDown. We’ve talked about this for a while.”
“It’s a good match, it’s a good matchup and it’s someone that Wyatt can very effectively put down and the move on. I really don’t see Goldberg taking the championship. That serves literally no one, but I do see the Fiend winning this one.”
Goldberg will presumably wrestle The Fiend under the red light at Super ShowDown, meaning the chances of The Myth recapturing the Universal Title are extremely slim.
