It's safe to say the Brock Lesnar and Goldberg buildup has been met with a mixed reception.
The sheer delight at the beginning has since been halted with a moment to forget on this week's episode of Monday Night Raw, so the next few weeks could be crucial for WWE and the booking of the Survivor Series match.
Goldberg's return to World Wrestling Entertainment has been a long time coming, and although it looked like it would never happen, it seems like he's happy to be back.

It's been well documented about the relationship he has with Vince McMahon and WWE, but after doing an interview with ESPN Sports Center, he admitted that a return to the squared circle was likely.
Fast forward a few weeks and he's confirmed in a match for next month's Survivor Series against none other than Brock Lesnar, the man he faced at WrestleMania 20.
Goldberg officially made his return to WWE last week as he answered Paul Heyman's challenge, and although he was met with a great reception last week, things didn't go to plan this past week on Raw.
With Heyman and Lesnar in the ring, it was very clear that the fans were on The Beast's side, continuously chanting 'Suplex City' and 'Goldberg Sucks'.
Of course, Raw was being held in a city that loves Lesnar, so that should have been no surprise to WWE, although given the reports, it's clear that McMahon was shocked himself.
However, for Goldberg, he doesn't mind if the fans boo him, and speaking in a recent interview with Jim Ross, the former WCW Champion just wants the fans to have a good time.
He said on The Ross Report: "At the end of the day, I hope everybody has fun. And if I just so happen to get booed, then, I am surely not going to go out and end my life because of it.
"At the end of the day, it's other people's interpretation upon your act at that moment, so if I get booed, then, I'll take it out on Brock more so than I'm doing already. And I believe that that's what we wanted to do to each other when we were booed the last time we met.
"And I think this time, the gloves, as we say, are off, so this is going to be a war."
