Survivor Series played host to the hotly anticipated rematch between Goldberg and Brock Lesnar.

A match that was years in the making following their rather forgettable match at WrestleMania 20, and it was over inside two minutes.

Despite everyone believing Lesnar would be the one going over at the pay-per-view, in just 86 seconds, Goldberg dismantled The Beast Incarnate and picked up the clean victory.

Two spears and one jackhammer was what it took, and it gave Goldberg a 2-0 lead over Lesnar with a third match reportedly set to take place at WrestleMania 33.

Following the match, Goldberg announced he'd be entering the Royal Rumble, whilst it's believed Lesnar will be next seen in January as part of the 30-man over the top rope match.

However, Goldberg vs Lesnar won't be forgotten about quickly, and it was such a special match that the commentators were even told to call it differently.

Michael Cole, who is an experienced WWE commentator, led the match, and it was clear that he was calling it a lot differently compared to other matches on the card.

In the buildup to the match, WWE were labelling it as a 'mega-match' and as 'Fantasy Warfare', and that is why WWE asked the commentators to call it differently.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the commentators were told to call the match like it was a real fight. The aim was to make it feel like a UFC fight and to make it feel as real as possible.

The different style commentary also helped aid the surprise ending, which came just 86 seconds into the match. That was also decided on to give it a real fight feel as short bouts occur in UFC all the time.

Although the commentators didn't exactly get long to do their job during the match, it certainly felt different to your normal WWE match.
