    Could have Goldberg beat Lesnar so then a regular wrestler can beat him. But the fact remains Goldberg has been out for well over a decade or something. Probably they would rather do a draw or a no-contest.

    Yeah, can see this. He looked incredibly rusty during that in-ring exchange with Rusev.

    One thing I will say, is that Goldberg looks in great shape. He can definitely, physically at least, prove more substantial than some of Lesnar's previous opponents. But we've seen Lesnar win, time and time again, and we've seen him destroy competition, from Orton and Ambrose, to Rollins, Reigns and Cena.

    The drama is in what happens when a defeated Lesnar unleashes his wrath the RAW after Survivor Series.

    Hasn't been mentioned much, but Zayn winning the IC title in his hometown could be a massive moment, and potentially one of the year.

    A very good RAW pre-Survivor Series, I thought.

    The Goldberg and Lesnar segment was full of tension, culminating in a topless face off and Goldberg came over strongly, looking like a genuine threat to the Beast Incarnate. As ever, Heyman was just on fire - and the whole promo was great, really. It was wise to delay the physical confrontation, and wise to book Lesnar a bit cowardly after he lost to Goldberg at WM20 in 2004.

    The opening segment saw a series of matches booked, including Roman Reigns and Kevin Owens vs. Cesaro and Sheamus, The New Day vs. Seth Rollins, Chris Jericho and Braun Strowman, along with Charlotte and Sasha Banks vs. Nia Jax and Alicia Fox.

    The opening bout, the former, was a solid match that played up the dissension among teammates, which was all this was really supposed to be. After, Sami Zayn squared off with Bo Dallas in singles competition and put over the importance of the IC title.

    Chris Jericho, Braun Strowman and Seth Rollins defeated The New Day, but it makes zero sense for a near record-breaking tag team to be beaten by a mismatch trio of superstars thrown together at the last minute, even if Strowman was highlighted and showcased nicely.

    Brian Kendrick defeated Sin Cara, and it made sense from Creative to put Sin Cara in this spot given his history with SmackDown Live's Kalisto. The bout itself was good, but the pre-match backstage segment was laughably bad, and it was good the match was swift. The cruiserweight division is in dire need of saving, in truth. Elsewhere, Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson, Enzo Amore and Big Cass defeated The Shining Stars and The Golden Truth. But only the latter two teams are credible.

    The brawl which culminated the show was good, but logic was thrown out of the window: Bray Wyatt wearing a SmackDown t-shirt? Rollins walking to the ring with Jericho and Owens? Shane O'Mac clearing the ring?

    There's no chance this is Goldberg's last match. I don't see him winning vs Lesnar though.

    Goldberg looks in exact sort of shape he did when he last wrestled which is a testament to the way he has looked after his body.

    The segment with Lesnar was perfect send off to the PPV. No physicality and Goldberg nearly went over the ropes in despatching a security guard over the rope! But it's to be expected.

    As for Sunday, I'd be inclined to give Goldberg a victory. Maybe Shane will interfere but expecting a clean win as there is ample time for WWE to create a compelling angle for Lesnar v Shane (which I doubt they will).

    Dream Feuds/Matches:

    Undertaker vs John Cena/ Roman Reigns/ Seth Rollins/ Jeff Hardy
    Seth Rollins vs Triple H
    Triple H vs Randy Orton (once again)

    Also I think Elimination Chamber should definitely come back as it was amazing. So many good matches. By far I think Triple H is the best in the Chamber.. Hes a beast..
    Triple H vs Brock Lesnar vs Goldberg vs John Cena vs Seth Rollins vs Roman Reigns would be a crazy match.
    Dean Ambose vs Kevin Owens vs Randy Orton vs Bray Wyatt vs Braun Strowman vs Batista would be great too.

    10 Man Battle Royal Dream Match:

    Roman Reigns, Undertaker, Brock Lesnar, Goldberg, Seth Rollins, Jeff Hardy, Batista, Randy Orton, Triple H, Dean Ambrose.

    What would yours be?

    According to F4WOnline.com, WWE plans to pit Universal Champion Kevin Owens against United States Champion Roman Reigns following Survivor Series, possibly at the show's Roadblock pay-per-view in December.

    The other two members, Seth Rollins and Chris Jericho, are reportedly headed for a match at the same event.

    Where does that leave Strowman?

    By the way, my Survivor Series predictions:

    - Brock Lesnar def. Goldberg.
    - Team SmackDown (AJ Styles, Dean Ambrose, Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt and Shane McMahon) def. Team RAW (Kevin Owens, Chris Jericho, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman) in a 5–on–5 Survivor Series Elimination match.
    - Team RAW (Charlotte, Bayley, Nia Jax, Alicia Fox and Sasha Banks) def. Team SmackDown (Nikki Bella, Becky Lynch, Alexa Bliss, Naomi and Carmella) in a 5–on–5 Survivor Series Elimination match.
    -Team SmackDown (Heath Slater and Rhyno, The Usos, American Alpha, Breezango and The Hype Bros) def. Team RAW (The New Day, Sheamus and Cesaro, The Club, Enzo and Big Cass and the Shining Stars) in a 10-on-10 Survivor Series Elimination match.
    - The Miz def. Sami Zayn for the Intercontinental Championship.
    - Brian Kendrick def. Kalisto for the Cruiserweight Championship.

    That's the whole point of shoe-horning Shane O'Mac into the Survivor Series team apparently. Wouldn't be surprised if there was an angle tonight which saw Shane cost Lesnar a victory, or vice versa.

    Surprised to see Shinsuke drop the belt to Joe at NXT TakeOver. Thought the latter was primed for a main roster call-up.

    A 5-year-old could've guessed that half a year ago. Another 'dirtsheet' exclusive made up from thin air.

    It's the current internet fad to say Brock and Shane is going to happen, probably due to Shane's record with fighting big guys and not being able to think of other guys who could believably fight Brock.

    If it is true, then Lesnar needs to lose first, and Goldberg plus shenanigans gives that opportunity.
