On a recent edition of his podcast, Ric Flair made a bold statement concerning the shocking main event between Brock Lesner and Goldberg. Flair felt that having Goldberg win the Royal Rumble and headline WrestleMania wouldn’t be such a bad idea after all.
When news came out that it was actually Lesnar who pushed to have Goldberg defeat him in such a convincing fashion, it changed the way many viewed the former WWE and UFC champion.
“Brock did him the biggest favor I have seen in this business in a long time. I mean, really, think about it. He just beat Brock Lesnar in a minute and 26 seconds, and convincingly. I mean, and they both look great, Bill looked to be in great shape.
My only concern was my worry of him being ready; not to faults of his own, but be ready to be bounced around by Brock, but he didn’t have to experience it, so I’m happy for both of them.”
16 time world champion, Flair certainly knows what it means to be at the top of the business. He also discussed how the match’s outcome could affect each of their futures.
“It’s hard to figure out what goes through Brock’s mind, but it was great for Goldberg, and our favorite saying is “what’s good for business.” They will have a great rematch there; and I’ve talked to Bill and he wants to work some more.
They both are making a lot of money, especially Brock.”
Both Goldberg and Lesnar have been confirmed participants in the 2017 Royal Rumble match.
