Right now it’s quite difficult to look past what’s coming our way in the next month or so on WWE television.
We witnessed the highly-anticipated return of Goldberg last night on Raw, and after a few weeks of build-up, we should be watching a WrestleMania XX rematch at Survivor Series in November when Goldberg meets Brock Lesnar in Toronto.
BIG FEW MONTHS
The reason for having this match at Survivor Series rather than WrestleMania 33 is reportedly because Vince McMahon has plans set in stone for The Beast Incarnate, and said plans could kick off in January.

The WWE recently announced that they would be returning to the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas for the annual Royal Rumble event, and the last time the pay-per-view was held there was 20 years ago, so they’re trying to go all out for it.
This includes bringing back some big names and giving the fans a night to remember.

Along with this, The Inquisitr are reporting that Lesnar will have a huge match at the event, where he could snatch the Universal Championship from Kevin Owens.
If that’s the direction the WWE are going in, we have to assume that Owens retains at Hell in a Cell, and manages to keep hold of the title through the Survivor Series and TLC events as well.
It could also mean that Lesnar wins in the rematch against Goldberg, as it would make no sense to be 2-0 down to him and go on to challenge for the biggest prize on the red brand, especially as he’s dominated everyone else on the roster.
This brings into question as to what they have planned for Lesnar at WrestleMania.
It was suggested that Lesnar could go on to face Shane McMahon following what happened at SummerSlam where he ate an F5 courtesy of The Beast.
If that’s the story they go with, it won't make sense for Lesnar to go into the match as champion, and it’ll be an equally poor decision to drop the championship soon after winning it.
Owens has called out Lesnar as a potential opponent numerous times, and going into a match of this magnitude would do wonders for his career as a star in the main event picture, even if he loses.
Now we have to wait until Survivor Series to get a better indication of whether Lesnar’s next step will be the championship, or whether he’ll turn his attention elsewhere.
