WWE WrestleMania 33: 3 Last-Minute Predictions

3 of 4


2. Brock Lesnar vs. Goldberg Goes About Three Minutes

Brock Lesnar vs. Goldberg being short is an expectation. They only went 86 seconds at Survivor Series 2016, and the match with Kevin Owens at WWE Fastlane lasted just 21 seconds. So it gives the perception of this WrestleMania 33 match being short, which is understandable.

Will Lesnar vs. Goldberg be as short as Survivor Series? Probably not. Going 86 seconds at the Grandest Stage of Them All would historically short for a WrestleMania match, especially if it’s the main event. It will go longer, but maybe around three minutes, so just under 100 extra seconds will be added on.

Along with the extra seconds, this should see the Beast Incarnate win the WWE Universal Championship. It makes sense from the storyline perspective, as it would be the first time Lesnar, the one who’s contracted with the WWE for another year, finally getting the upper hand on the one person who has always gotten past him. This isn’t the ultimate underdog story, nor has it been portrayed as that, but should still be a satisfying moment for Lesnar’s career.

Expect this to be longer than the Survivor Series match, but not that much longer. If you leave for the restroom, you may still miss it!
