For those of you that saw Raw, you got to see one epic stand-off as the night ended with Brock Lesnar, Goldberg and the Undertaker all poised in the ring. Raw ended on that note as they faded out from those three wrestlers. After the show went off the air though, Brock was the first to leave. Goldberg then left and greeted fans at ringside. With the Undertaker alone in the ring, he did his signature pose and then raised one arm in the air as he left to go to the back. That moment when you're second row at […]

As was seen tonight on RAW, Goldberg closed the show to deliver a promo about the Royal Rumble. He would be interrupted by Paul Heyman, who brought down Brock Lesnar for a fight. However, the Undertaker interrupted that and seemed to stand side-by-side with Goldberg as they stared down Lesnar. Before any of that went down though, Goldberg headbutted a locker in the back and was trickling blood from his head for the entire segment.

For those that missed it on this week’s WWE Raw, Sami Zayn beat Seth Rollins to earn a spot in the 30-man Royal Rumble match on Sunday. Per the stipulation set forth by Stephanie McMahon, Rollins lost his spot. He actually lost the match when Triple H’s music played and he didn’t appear. This obviously fuels speculation about a program at Wrestlemania 33 between Hunter and Rollins. The stipulation really doesn’t make much sense when you consider that Rusev and Big Cass just announced themselves as Royal Rumble entrants, joining Brock Lesnar, Bill Goldberg, Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods, Big E, […]
