Taz opens today’s show speaking about Goldberg’s segment on last night’s episode of Monday Night RAW. He loved that Goldberg held onto his Universal Title for dear life, even as he was on the verge of being F5’d by Brock Lesnar. After Lesnar exited the ring, WWE got an awesome shot of Goldberg crawling to pick up his Title as well.
Taz thinks that Goldberg got more over last night than during his entire run so far when he was presented as just a straight up bad ass. The way he treated his Title belt last night builds character and goes a long way in making a Title feel special. Goldberg treated that Title like it was his baby, and he didn’t want to let it go. Taz thinks that Paul Heyman probably had a lot to do with this segment because he knows how much Title belts mean to Heyman.
Heading into Fastlane, Taz said that he felt the Universal Title would be nothing more than a prop on Goldberg’s shoulder for his WrestleMania match against Lesnar. Today, Taz stands corrected after seeing how Goldberg was booked last night, and after seeing how much the Championship clearly means to Goldberg.
