    I don't think it'll be horrible. It's not 50-something vs. 50-something like Undertaker in Saudi Arabia.

    I bet it'll be short, and if anybody can flop around like a fish, it's Dolph.

    I guess. I just dont know what the point is. Zigglers 1/2 comedian these days, building towards nothing. Goldberg on his best day sucked. What does anyone need this match for?

    I'm kind of optimistic on the fact that you could use it to build Dolph back up a bit. Like, the guy can work - that's never been in question. Let him show off that skill against a guy that doesn't really have that reputation, but that'll still drew a crowd as a novelty. (Of course, for this to work, they have to give them at least 10 minutes, and Dolph either has to go over, or, not look like a chump. Unclear if that'll happen.)

    Is Goldberg capable of having an entertaining 10-minute match? Was he capable of it even in his prime?
    Obviously Michaels and Miz will get their moments in this one, too. I see Dolph as the pinata, where he eats a superkick from HBK, a Skull Crushing Finale from Miz, and then the spear/jackhammer from Goldberg to end it.

    This is better than all the interviews they put on TV. The name blows but these guys rule

    Can't wait to see his return. If they keep it a surprise, the roof will explode at Full Sail or one of the Takeovers in the smart cities.

    Thing is, they almost have to bring him back as a face, at least initially, even though he may have been one of, if not the best, heels on the entire WWE payroll.

    If I was them I’d consider keeping the title on Cole until Ciampa is ready to take it back.

    His match with DDP went about 15 minutes and was very entertaining, but that’s about it.

    His WM match with Lesnar was entertaining, but went just 5 minutes.

    Thing is, he used to be able to do a couple other moves to mix in. Problem is, he’s not good at selling, so it’s not like a technical heel could do a bunch of moves around his 2 moves of doom.
