WrestleMania 33: Bill Goldberg

At the 2016 edition of Survivor Series, Brock Lesnar entered the squared circle intent on defeating Bill Goldberg. These two powerhouses had met twelve years prior at WrestleMania 20, and the match was considered by many to be one of the worst WrestleMania contests of all-time. For Lesnar, it was even more personal, as that night had him suffer a humiliating defeat on his way out of the company. To top it all off, Lesnar also ended up on the receiving end of a Stone Cold Stunner, causing his two year run in WWE to end on a rather sour note.

Eager to write the wrong and score a measure of revenge in the process, Lesnar was full of confidence heading into Survivor Series. In one of the most shocking moments in WWE history, Goldberg defeated the Beast in less than two minutes. With just two spears and a Jackhammer, the former WCW Champion had ended the two and half year streak Lesnar had of not getting pinned inside a WWE ring. This instantly propelled Goldberg to the top of the WWE mountain, and he followed up that performance by quickly eliminating the Beast from the Royal Rumble just a few months later.

Heading into WrestleMania 33, Goldberg was in the middle of his reign as WWE Universal Champion. Challenged by none other than Brock Lesnar, Goldberg agreed to a third and final match between the two for the Show of Shows. That contest was a rather short affair, but in just a few short minutes the two veterans put on an absolute clinic. Both Lesnar and Goldberg hit their signature maneuvers, with Goldberg hitting spear after spear and Lesnar opening the gates to Suplex City. On this night though, Lesnar would get the decisive win, hitting seven consecutive German suplexes and an F5 to win the feud once and for all.
