• Goldberg Reportedly Pushed For Him To Beat The Fiend To Protect His Character
A new report from Wrestlezone claims that WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg defeating “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt to win the Universal Championship at WWE Super ShowDown 2020 was a last minute decision, and that Goldberg reportedly pushed for the idea of him defeating the unstoppable Fiend to protect his character:
“We were told that Goldberg going over was a last-minute decision, apparently because Goldberg didn’t want to risk damaging his image.
It was noted that Goldberg bargained for creative control and pushed for the title win because ‘The Fiend’ was a monster and the younger fans needed to see him come out victorious, or it would ruin his character.”
