Brock Lesnar and Goldberg are the two WWE superstars dominating the headlines in recent weeks.
With the two likely to cross paths sooner rather than later in the squared circle, the buildup for the match is starting to pick up some momentum.
It all started on ESPN's Sports Center with Jonathan Coachman interviewing Goldberg and asking him about his future with World Wrestling Entertainment.

Goldberg discussed his plans with WWE and admitted that should he return, the encounter he'd want is with Lesnar, years on from their forgettable match at WrestleMania.
The following week on Monday Night Raw, Lesnar's advocate Paul Heyman made his way down to the ring to issue a challenge to Goldberg, which one week later, he accepted.
This past week on Raw, Goldberg made his dramatic and long-awaited return to WWE, answering Heyman's challenge and telling Lesnar that he's not only 'next', but he's also 'last'.
So it looks like everything is set. Goldberg vs Brock Lesnar is going to happen, and it's likely to happen at next month's pay-per-view Survivor Series.
Despite Goldberg's growing population and the fact he's making a dramatic return to the company, it's almost certain that Lesnar will have his hand raised at the end of the match.
According to Cageside Seats' rumour page, 'almost nothing' could change WWE's mind regarding who wins the bout between Goldberg and Lesnar.
The plan from the start has been for The Beast to beat Goldberg, and it seems like those plans will never change.
