WWE Super Show-Down is almost finished now, with just the main event remaining. The Fiend defends the WWE Universal Championship against Goldberg in our final bout of the day. Bill Goldberg gets a super reaction on his way out. The Fiend Bray Wyatt makes his way out with a red laser light show ala Evil of Los Ingobernables de Japon. LOTS of “GOLDBERG” chants. And they only get louder when he comes out to the ring.
WWE Universal Championship: The Fiend Bray Wyatt (c) vs. Bill Goldberg
Goldberg and Fiend meet in the middle of the ring, staring each other down. Even MORE Goldberg chants. The crowd favorite is clear. SPEAR!!! Fiend kicks out. Fiend applies the Mandible Claw, Goldberg struggles to fight out of it, backs Fiend into the corner… ANOTHER SPEAR! Fiend tries to escape… A THIRD Spear! There’s some boos mixed in with the Goldber chants now. Spear number four… KICKOUT NUMBER FOUR! Now they’re just burying this. Fiend sits up, applies the Mandible Claw again! Goldberg tries to fight out, can’t get the Fiend’s hand out of his mouth… but he refuses to quit. Goldberg headbutts the Fiend, gets him up for the Jackhammer… and…. that is that.
Winner: Bill Goldberg
Goldberg wins the Universal Championship for the second time. Welp. That happened!
The Fiend is back on his feet after Goldberg celebrates. He stares at Goldberg from behind… the lights go out, and he vanishes. And that’s how the show goes off the air, I suppose.
I’m a little disappointed really. Roman/Fiend would’ve been the first WrestleMania main event to be purely full-timers since John Cena vs. The Miz at WrestleMania 27. And mind you, even that match was based largely around the Rock. Still. With Roman/Goldberg, we are officially guaranteed to have ten consecutive WrestleManias to be main evented by a part-timer. I’m not really thrilled about it but hopefully we’ll atleast be putting the full-timers over this time around. Roman should be beating Goldberg and Drew McIntyre should certainly be beating Brock Lesnar.
Maybe one day, WWE will make new stars again. We’ll see how long it takes for the streak to get broken, I suppose. In other news, Goldberg has now become a three time world champion in WWE, and did so in three different decades. And not once did he hold the WWE title. Strange days.
