In just over a month's time, the WWE Universe will witness Brock Lesnar vs Goldberg version 2.0.

The best thing about this match is that for the majority of the fans, they will have no hopes or expectations, especially given their last performance in the ring together back at WrestleMania 20.

The two put on possibly the worst ever 'Mania match, with both of them eventually taking a Stone Cold Stunner from Steve Austin.

It was well documented at the time that both were leaving the company, and maybe that's why the performance was so lackluster, but that simply will not be the case this time around.

They are both back working for WWE and they will both want to make amends for their showing back in 2004.

In fact, whilst talking to Jim Ross on an episode of The Ross Report, Goldberg insisted that this upcoming match at Survivor Series will exceed expectations.

Goldberg was asked about his physical state and whether he can still run the ropes, and although he admitted to not being an expert, he also admitted that the physicality of the bout will exceed expectations.

He said: "As far as taking bumps and giving bumps, I've been taking bumps and I've been giving bumps, but they are of a completely different kind.

"So just because I'm not up on my hitting the ropes skills, don't mean that I don't bring something to the table that will far exceed expectations as far as violence is concerned, so that's what we do, man.

"And I'm just trying to, I've got to reinvent myself and I've got to figure out the right combination to bring into that ring."

Goldberg made his long-awaited return to WWE last week on Monday Night Raw, accepting Paul Heyman's challenge on behalf of Lesnar, and insisting that The Beast is next, and also last.

However, since that episode, Heyman and Lesnar have cut a rather poor promo trying to hype up the match, with the fans in attendance this past week cheering for Lesnar, the supposed heel, and booing Goldberg, the supposed face.

It was clear Heyman was struggling to get the fans to change their minds, and it eventually led to Vince McMahon cutting the segment short.

WWE will be hoping that the promos going forward will go more as planned and will offer a lot more hype towards the Survivor Series encounter.
