Goldeberg Vs Brock Lesnar || WWE Universal Championship Title Match || WrestleMania 33 || WWE 2k17

WrestleMania 33 is finally here. Over weeks and months of action on "Monday Night Raw," "SmackDown Live," "205 Live" and a variety of pay-per-views, we've reached the pinnacle of the year in the world of professional wrestling.

For those casual viewers who need to get caught up ahead of diving back into the WWE ahead of WrestleMania, or those just seeking a refresher because of the sheer volume of programming it took to get here, we have everything you need to know leading into some of the biggest matches on the card. We'll be dropping them throughout the week, and we continue our coverage with a look at the presumptive main event of WrestleMania 33 -- the clash of titans that is the Universal championship match between Goldberg and Brock Lesnar

The build

The impetus for this match is a video game. No, seriously. This all started during the promotion of WWE 2K17, for which Lesnar was the cover athlete and Goldberg was a pre-registration bonus character; after Goldberg appeared on ESPN SportsCenter's "Off the Top Rope" in October, plans for a match at Survivor Series came together quickly.

Rule No. 10: Always overload supercards with great matches and unique elements
Sometimes the biggest rule for helping talent get over in professional wrestling is determined by how to stack a major card. It's one rule that hasn't changed in decades.
While the impetus wasn't the most organic start to a rivalry, the execution since that point has been surprisingly well done. That's thanks in large part to Paul Heyman, who has made a career of taking questionable premises and polishing them into gold. He helped light a fire underneath this rivalry in its earliest stages, and by the time Lesnar and Goldberg were separated by a wall of security guards prior to Survivor Series, the crowd became anxious to see what their match could actually be.

In 86 seconds, Goldberg shocked the world with a pair of spears, a jackhammer and a three-count victory in the main event of Survivor Series. He made Lesnar look like a fool again with a quick elimination in the Royal Rumble match in January. Lesnar finally got the upper hand just a few weeks ago on Raw with an F5, and through it all Heyman has been the glue holding what should be a ridiculous and unbelievable conflict solidly together. At Fastlane, thanks to a distraction from Chris Jericho, Goldberg beat Kevin Owens to win the Universal championship.

If, 17 years ago, someone had told you that after stinking out Madison Square Garden just before both of them were leaving the WWE that Lesnar and Goldberg would be fighting over a world title in the (presumptive) main event of WrestleMania, you'd have thought they'd gone off the deep end. But here we are.

Key stat

The prediction

This is likely the hardest match to predict on the entire card. Logic would seemingly dictate that Lesnar gets his revenge and dispatches Goldberg, sending him off into the sunset. Lesnar is in great shape and can go, but Goldberg is a completely unknown entity with two matches that have required little in the way of endurance and an appearance in the Royal Rumble match. He certainly hasn't been appearing on Live Events, and without that kind of conditioning, it would be one final shock to see Goldberg carry on a match for anything more than a few minutes.

To be honest, even at the peak of his powers Goldberg expended so much energy on the way to the ring and in doing his two big power moves, that he rarely had time for much else. If this match indeed goes on in the final spot, the traditional main event, it will be fascinating to see how it all plays out.

For my money, let's keep it simple. Lesnar wins, it's at least fairly quick if not over in the blink of an eye, and that's that.
