    Bill Goldberg And An Oral History Of WWE Superstars Who Want A WrestleMania Match With Brock Lesnar


    The Rock

    “In Dallas [against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 32]? Possibly. There’s a lot of things that are up in the air. Lot of things are up in the air. We’ll see. I would love that rematch, I would love… whatever it is, you want to create something that’s going to be special, memorable, especially in Dallas at that stadium you have a shot at breaking the attendance record. It’s got to be special.” (The Rock to USA Today)

    “Notice how The Rock picks fights with Bray Wyatt, or fights with Rusev and John Cena? Notice how The Rock doesn’t pick a fight with Brock Lesnar? Is Brock Lesnar ready for The Rock? Is The Rock ready for Brock Lesnar?” (Paul Heyman to The Sun)

    Daniel Bryan

    “My No. 1 dream match is Brock Lesnar. And I want that to be a WrestleMania match. I don’t know if the WWE will ever let that happen, because they might be afraid he might legitimately hurt me pretty bad.” (Bryan to The National)

    “What bigger underdog match is there than Brock Lesnar vs. Daniel Bryan? That’s like David vs. Goliath. And I also think he’s never wrestled or fought anybody like me before. I was working on this new style before they told me I couldn’t wrestle anymore that’s really unlike anything else, just the way that I move. I don’t think Brock would really know how to handle it." (Bryan to Michael Cole on WWE’s YouTube channel)

    Kevin Owens

    “I want Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania. It’s as simple as that.” (Owens to ESPN)

    “Why don’t you take off that Brock Lesnar shirt and get a shirt of somebody who’s actually a professional wrestler?” (Owens at a WWE live event)

    Sami Zayn

    “Obviously Brock has done his damage, I’m sure I can get a good shot or two, and I believe it’s all about putting on a compelling match, and I believe that would happen with the two of us.” (Zayn to Wrestling Compadres Slamcast)

    Shinsuke Nakamura

    “If I get a chance, I would be up for that.”

    “My body would need to be ready because he is tough. Ouch.”
    (Nakamura to Channel Guide Magazine)

    Bobby Lashley

    “You know, I hear that all the time, and J.R., you know as well as I do, it’s not in my hands. If you ask me, I would say absolutely, but it’s the powers that be. I think that there’s enough fans who would love to see it. They’ve been saying it from day one. And you know what the funny thing about it is? I’ve never met Brock in person. Never crossed paths with Brock anywhere. So we don’t even know each other at all, whatsoever."

    “And I’ve always been compared to Brock, and they say ‘Are you and Brock gonna fight? Are you and Brock gonna wrestle? I don’t know if the fighting is still an opportunity with me being in Bellator and him kind of being with the UFC; or I don’t know what the situation is right now. So I don’t know if the fight thing is possible, but to see me as Brock’s destroying everyone and save the day, or vice versa, whatever the case is, have us stand face to face? I think the crowd would go insane. And there’s a tremendous amount of money in it. If it were to happen, then I’m open for it.”
    (Lashley to Jim Ross during The Ross Report)

    Samoa Joe


    “For selfish reasons, I’d like to see Brock stand tall until I get my hands on him…I’d like to see Brock pull through so I can get my shot at him.” (Samoa Joe to Forbes)

    (When asked where he’d like to face Brock Lesnar) “WrestleMania 33. Where else would we fight?”

    Goldberg

    “I don’t owe Brock Lesnar a rematch. I was able to prosper and have my hand raised at the first meeting and I think if I ever came back, that’d be the match.” (Goldberg to ESPN)

    “Brock knows how I feel about him, Brock understands what it’s like to be in the ring with me—although it was not the best match in the world by any stretch because you guys knew we were leaving. But Brock knows the power, Brock’s felt the power, Brock knows that I don’t play around, I’m just like he is. And that’s what’s missing, is somebody to give him the fight just like he gives to everybody else."

    “Brock knows what would happen, Brock knows where I live.”
    (Goldberg at 2K Sports Promotional Event)

    “If Bill Goldberg has the balls to step back into the ring with me—where you at? Where are you? Let’s go.” (Lesnar to WhatCulture)

  2. LOL, that is a great thread title. :brock4:

    I wouldn't mind seeing Bork against any of those dudes, except Goldberg. But, since that's already happening and Bork will win this time, then what the hell, let's just roll with it.

    Also, Bork vs DB, Joe, KO, Sami and Nakamura would be great.

  3. I wanna see Brock vs Kevin and I am hoping it happens before Brock decides to be done. Maybe seeing this at WrestleMania would be good. I think the Goldberg match will happen before then but who knows.

  4. Bork vs Goldberg will probably happen at Survivor Series or at the Rumble. Doubt they'll do it at Mania.

    I think KO vs Lesnar is going to happen at some point. So, if KO gets booked to face Lesnar at Mania and maybe even defeat him, that would be great.

  5. Really though... I want to see Brock get the title and face Cena and Cena wins at WrestleMania to break Ric's record. Beating Brock will make it much sweeter.
     
  6. They're not going to revisit the Brock/Cena feud, I feel.

    Plus, Cena's going to tie Ric Flair's record regardless... By defeating Styles, most likely.
     
  7. Ehh I suppose. I guess here it to hoping we see KO vs Brock at WM :ko::brock6:

  8. KO/Lesnar is the match I really want to see not for the match itself but the weeks of Banter between Owens and Heyman. When I think about it I personally can't see Owens as a legit threat to Lesnar but who is? Either way the match would be a really good hard hitting brawl between two beasts.

    The only other match I would really want from this is Joe/Lesnar...good God what a match that would be.

  9. I would love to see Brock vs KO, Samoa Joe, or the Rock so we can have that rematch
     
  10. Owens needs to be the guy to get the final rub from Brock. Maybe for the gold. With this Universal title run he needs to be booked as one of the strongest champs ever, and then it's on. Believable that with his size, and his athleticism for his size, he could win (sadly unlike D-Bry).
     
  11. KO is the best choice let him beat Brock Lesnar with the "Kill Steen Kill" attitude
