Why Raw in Minneapolis is Crucial for the Lesnar vs Goldberg Feud
This weeks edition of Monday Night emulates live from the Target Center, in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The vocal point for the show shall be the return of Brock Lesnar to WWE TV. Lesnar was last seen at Summerslam, where he defeated Randy Orton by TKO. In addition to this, Minneapolis is the hometown of Brock Lesnar, therefore the beast incarnate shall come out to an expected huge pop. There is no doubt that WWE shall look to build the tension between Brock Lesnar and Goldberg, who returned to the company last week after a 12 year absence. Here is why this week’s edition of Monday Night Raw is crucial for the Lesnar vs Goldberg Feud.
The Return of Brock Lesnar
It is no secret that Brock Lesnar shall be present on this week’s edition of Monday Night Raw, simply because it would be most fitting. The Beast was last on WWE TV at Summerslam, where he defeated Randy Orton. The mayor of Suplex City shall be making his return to WWE TV, in front of his of hometown of Minneapolis, Minnesota, otherwise known as the real Suplex City! In addition to this there is no question that Lesnar shall come out to an incredible pop, due to the location of the show being his hometown. At some point during the show there should be a segment featuring Brock Lesnar and his advocate Paul Heyman. It is a not rocket science that WWE shall need to ensure Heyman does all the talking, because that’s what is best for this feud and for business overall. The added hostility of the Minneapolis crowd and the words of fire from Paul Heyman shall have the potential to create tension like no other.
Why This Episode of Raw is important
Essentially, every episode of Monday Night Raw is important, however I personally believe that this is the most vital in the run-up to Survivor Series. This is because it is all but confirmed that Brock Lesnar and Bill Goldberg shall square off once more, there is also the added implication of the location of this week’s Raw. Consider the fact that Lesnar shall be returning to WWE TV in front of his hometown, can only add fuel to the fire. WWE simply cannot miss the boat here, all the elements to ignite a colossal feud are there. While there may be 4 weeks to go until Survivor Series, this episode of Raw could potentially have a long-lasting effect on the feud. Furthermore if Goldberg was to make an appearance there could be leeway for an interesting encounter, 12 years in the making.
After a 12 year absence, Goldberg’s WWE return has truly created a buzz that has not been felt for a long time. After being announced as the pre-order bonus for WWE 2K16, fans were in no doubt that the former WCW star would return to WWE. Brock Lesnar is without doubt the most fitting opponent for Goldberg and Survivor Series is a fitting venue, thus creating a well hyped and anticipated match. Aside from the fact that this is Bill Goldberg’s final professional match, WWE can still create something special for the fans. Not to mention the fact they shall need to ensure their Survivor Series encounter is better than their previous match, at Wrestlemania 20! It should be given that WWE needs to build the feud on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw.
