Wrestlemaina 33: Goldberg’s Match Against Brock Lesnar Should Not Be For The WWE Universal Title

We are on the road to Wrestlemania, with a pit stop at Elimination Chamber for Smackdown and Fastlane for Raw before hand. Over the last few weeks, as this road has begun, there has been a lot of rumors as to what we might see at the grandest stage for professional wrestling and one of them caught my eye. According to several sites, it seems that Vince McMahon wants to put the WWE Universal title on Goldberg and have his match against Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 33 be for the WWE Universal title.

I am aware that it is only a rumor and it should not be taken seriously, but I find it quite ridiculous if WWE decides to put the title on a part timer like Goldberg. It’s ridiculous because you have a Raw roster that has a ton of wrestlers who deserve the title way more than Goldberg. Some of them include Seth Rollins, Finn Balor (when he returns from injury), Cesaro, and others. I feel putting the title on a part timer like Goldberg or Lesnar will simply devalue the title as it won’t be defended at live events.

If this rumor holds to be true and Goldberg happens to walk into Wrestlemania 33 with the title, you might not see that belt defended for a quite some time afterward. This is because Goldberg or Lesnar are not full-timers and may not appear on the pay-per-views after Wrestlemaina like Extreme Rules, Money in the Bank, or Battleground. In all honesty, I bet the title wouldn’t be defended again until Summerslam, which is not fair to the title. Unlike the WWE World Championship that is on Smackdown, the WWE Universal title has not had a lot of time to gain credibility.

I will never understand Vince McMahon’s feeling about not building up new talent and relying on the older talents. I am aware that Lesnar is one of the top attractions in WWE, but he doesn’t need the belt. I recall the last time he won the belt after he beat Cena for it and it was a terrible reign.He defended it at Night of Champions, Royal Rumble, and Wrestlemania 31.

I don’t know how else to put it, but don’t put the belt on Lesnar or Goldberg going into Wrestlemania. The WWE has a lot of talented wrestlers who should get the opportunity.

Let us know in the comments below if you would like to see Goldberg or Lesnar hold the WWE Universal title going into and coming out of Wrestlemania?
