The whole month leading up to this moment seemed simple …
Lesnar had to lose the title to someone because him & Goldberg were set to leave after their match at Mania. But Lesnar still had the belt a month before he’s gone.
Who is a worthy adversary to defeat Lesnar but not make him look weak leading into Mania against Goldberg while still remaining a credible champion? Who does the WWE decide to go with the belt leading into Mania?
One of the most well rounded, incredibly talented men to ever step into a ring or ever hold a microphone. One of the very few men who could captivate you in a ring or on a mic while making it seem effortless, almost natural even. A man who had suffered so intensely but came back to reclaim his legacy & to create this moment … .
