Goldberg returns this Sunday at WWE Survivor Series to take on Brock Lesnar in a rematch of their 2004 encounter at WrestleMania XX, while three Raw vs Smackdown team matches promise to deliver an unpredictable night at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto.
In what has been 12 years in the making, Goldberg makes his WWE in-ring return to take on Lesnar, having beaten The Beast Incarnate in their only previous encounter. Lesnar will have Paul Heyman at ringside, while Goldberg is almost certain to have his family watching on for the first time in his career.
Elsewhere, Team Raw and Team Smackdown collide it what could prove three iconic matches in the form of a men’s, women’s and tag team encounters.
Kevin Owens, Chris Jericho, Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman and Seth Rollins will represent Raw when they take on AJ Styles, Dean Ambrose, Bray Wyatt, Randy Orton and Shane McMahon, who will also have James Ellsworth in their corner. However, Smackdown will have the added burden hanging over their heads of The Undertaker’s return this week. Will The Deadman play a part in the bout?
In the women’s team match, Charlotte Flair is joined by Bayley, Nia Jax, Alicia Fox, and Sasha Banks to take on the Smackdown line-up of Nikki Bella, Becky Lynch, Alexa Bliss, Carmella, and Naomi.
As well as the mammoth tag-team elimination match, The Miz takes on Sami Zayn in the latest defence of his Intercontinental Championship that could see the title switch from Smackdown to Raw if Zayn pulls off the victory, while Brian Kendrick defends the Cruiserweight title against Kalisto that could see the entire cruiserweight roster transfer to Smackdown.
