The match lasted just a few seconds as WWE United States Champion Chris Jericho appeared on the stage to distract his former best friend, which allowed Goldberg to nail a spear and the Jackhammer for the quick win.
This is Goldberg's first run with the WWE Universal Title. Owens won the title back on August 29th, 2016 in a Fatal 4 Way after the title was vacated by Finn Balor due to injury.
Goldberg will now defend his title against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 33 next month in Orlando.
