The X-Factor: Making the case for Goldberg vs. Reigns
Submitted by Victor Mariscal on 03/02/2020 at 03:52 PM

Here I was thinking that the people would actually run with this one. They don’t call it a “dream match” for nothing.

Much like I stood up for the Bellas recently, here’s me making the case for the bout that the smart fans are already dismissing out of hand.

First, the obvious. Roman Reigns did not lose the Universal title. Next, the Chamber match to decide the #1 contender is off. The winner was obvious so that time can go to another match.

To those saying that The Fiend’s been damaged by this, you’re 4 months late to the party. He doesn’t even need a title to matter, and be honest. It wouldn’t have mattered who beats him. It could’ve been Adam Cole and you’d still whine. The inherent problem with the The Fiend - and Goldberg can relate - is that building someone up to be invincible is counter-productive.

He beat Brock Lesnar in under two minutes. What did you think would happen?

Speaking of, the complaining about Lesnar revolves around him being a part-timer. Wyatt doesn’t wrestle much, only on PPV in fact.

Like me, some fans adopt the “wait and see” approach. The haters assumed Reigns vs. Lesnar in Levi’s Stadium was gonna bomb. It didn’t. There was a feeling that The Beast vs. Da Man would tank in Orlando. It was five minutes, but it was a pitched battle that was exactly what it needed to be.

It wouldn’t matter if WWE gave you exactly what you want. In New Jersey last year, Seth, Kofi, and Becky all left with gold. The fans still whined. If the smart fans had their say, the Universal champ, Roman and John Cena wouldn’t even be on the card this year.

Goldberg and Cena showed up and drew big ratings. They sold tickets. Reigns moves merchandise, and there’s his goodwill work involving cancer awareness. Need I go on?

Don’t mess with the X.
