UFC’s Influence On Goldberg vs Lesnar At Survivor Series, How Were Commentators Told To Call The Bout?

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that the idea for the Goldberg vs Brock Lesnar match at Survivor Series was to present it like a fight.

Meltzer noted in the newsletter that the announcers were told to call the match like a fight unlike the rest of the matches on the card.


Apparently the company feels that today’s wrestling audience is familiar enough with UFC to know that fights can end quickly and explosively. With that in mind they didn’t feel that anyone would feel ripped off or dissatisfied with the finish of the bout.

The current plan as of now is still to build to a rematch between the two at WrestleMania 33 in Orlando, FL.
