It’s lucky that Braun Strowman wasn’t booked for WrestleMania, and he was available. He was needed when Roman Reigns decided against wrestling for the Universal Title.

Goldberg missed a charge to the post. Strowman tried to powerslam Goldberg and then Goldberg hit three spears for a two count.

Then Goldberg hit a fourth spear and he pointed toward the sky. Goldberg picked Strowman up for a Jackhammer, but Braun countered with three powerslams.

Instead of pinning Goldberg, Strowman picked him up for a fourth running powerslam and got the pin to win the WWE Universal Title.
