All the talk about the dream match main eventing Wrestlemania and it comes down to the Rock vs. Goldberg. You know the company is in bad shape when the 2 guys they want to main event their top PPV aren't even on TV and like Rock/Hogan it won't be for the title. They might as well add Austin vs. Hogan. We can bring back the big names for the PPV.
The question is who wins this big match. I go with Goldberg, he'd need to win in his first WWE PPV match.
Without this match, you are stuck with a combo of Angle/Lesnar/Triple H/Steiner in the main event.
I just had this conversation with my friend the other day. I'd say they have to go with Goldberg, just because it's stupid to bring him in to lose. (especially if it's a rumored short-term deal) However, I really think they should pull the trigger on Austin/Goldberg if they're going to bring him in. Who knows if they'll ever get the chance to pull off that match again.
Professional wrestling isn't a hobby. It's a lifestyle.
Rock wins. I assume that somebody (Austin) will interfere, so that Goldberg can move quickly to another "money drawing" feud.
I can't tell you the disgust I have when I think about Goldberg facing Rock in the main event of WM over the guys who are carrying the company through bad economic times right now (and that includes HHH). I know that the WWE needs to fill up Safeco field, but I loath that they will do it with the guy who seemingly has no respect for the business.

Speaking of Austin merch, Drew Barrymore's wearing an Austin t-shirt in one scene of Charlie's Angels. It's the shirt where he has snakes for arms, the one that he wore to the ring for Mania 15. I forget which scene of the movie it's in.
