Bill Goldberg returned to WWE two weeks ago, and will be wrestling against Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series on November 20th. For his initial return, we had to wait three hours of Raw; tonight in Hartford, he came out at the opener.
Paul Heyman interrupted his promo and teased that Brock Lesnar was in the building as backup. It was a ruse. Instead, Rusev’s music hit and everyone with any familiarity with the product realized he was about to get his booty kicked.
And that’s exactly what happened.
After talking for a minute or so, he struck Goldberg with a right. Goldberg was unfazed, effortlessly hit him with his old finishing move, and then speared Paul Heyman for good measure.
