Goldberg Reveals Brock Lesnar Pitched To Lose In 90 Seconds At WWE Survivor Series
Goldberg memorably squashed Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series 2016
Goldberg’s later run in WWE may have been divisive and at times controversial, but the beginnings of his run with Brock Lesnar in 2016 were very well received, including Goldberg’s shock demolition of Lesnar at Survivor Series.
Goldberg crushed Lesnar in under two minutes, and during an appearance on Talk is Jericho, Goldberg revealed it was Lesnar himself who pitched the squash:
"I never would have said this before, and I don't think you would have said this before, but Brock Lesnar is an absolute mastermind. He really is,” said Goldberg. “That is something that I never saw coming. Never, especially from a guy that talked bulls*** about the business prior to getting into it, that he would never get into the fake wrestling thing considering he was a real wrestler. Lo and behold, he looks at the opportunity, takes advantage of it, and s***, he's got a rocket ship up his butt and to the moon.
“It was an honour for me to still be looked upon as somebody who was a worthy competitor and worthy challenge for him. Brock is the one that came up with the 90-second deal. You know me, I'm not going to walk in and say, 'Ah, I've been waiting 12 years, I'm gonna beat Brock in 90 seconds. Pay me and I'm gone.' It doesn't work like that. I learned a lot from Brock and I learned a lot about who he is and about how creative he is and about how unselfish he is. Those are things that people would definitely be surprised about when talking about Brock Lesnar.”
