With such a stacked WrestleMania card, many have wondered which match would be chosen at the main event. Pro Wrestling Observer is now reporting that the last match for WrestleMania 33 is scheduled to be Goldberg defending the Universal Championship against Brock Lesnar. The epic rematch is planned to be the true main event despite the Royal Rumble winner getting the opportunity to main event WrestleMania. It now appears Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton will fall lower on the card due Lesnar and Goldberg's appeal to the casual fan.
While it's positioning on the card may not come as a surprise, many have been speculating about how long of a match these two behemoths will put on, considering neither have had a match lasting longer than three minutes in well over six months.
Yesterday, Shawn Michaels commented on the match duration, saying he hoped it would last 15-17 minutes. Those hoping for a longer battle will be sorely disappointed to find out that the current speculation is that this match will not be long. The quick matches that Goldberg had against Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series and Kevin Owens at Fastlane, as well as the Royal Rumble elimination of Lesnar, is to build Goldberg up as a dominant figure, just to be dethroned by Lesnar.
Based on the current plans, Lesnar is scheduled to defeat Goldberg in quick fashion to conclude WrestleMania 33 as the new WWE Universal Champion. In the WWE's eyes, the quick win will put Lesnar back on equal footing with Goldberg as he goes forward.
Yesterday, video footage was shown of Lesnar destroying Owens at a WWE Live event in the Madison Square Garden. Owens has a rematch clause, which has yet to be used. No word on if Owens will use it on Lesnar following WrestleMania, or if it will be dropped.
