It was only a matter of time before we heard from Eric Bischoff about the Goldberg v. Lesnar match at Survivor Series. And that time came on the latest episode of his Bischoff on Wrestling podcast, where he had this to say about it:
"It was great. It was a great reaction because I didn’t expect it. It was a surprise. You and I talked last week on 120 Sports and we talked about what our expectations for that match were going in to it. I told you on that segment that I thought I would give it, on my personal scale of 1-10, an 8. I told you why because I thought out of the five elements that are absolutely critical to any storyline being successful. That being Story, Anticipation, Reality, Surprise and Action (SARSA). They had four out of those five story elements really well nailed going in to the PPV. The fifth one was the element of surprise. While they hadn’t checked that box going in to the match they certainly double checked it in the match with the 86 second surprise ending where Goldberg gets the win. I don’t think anybody, ANYBODY, could have predicted that. I don’t think Bill would have predicted it. I don’t think Bill hoped for it in his wildest fantasy. By checking all five of those SARSA boxes I think they delivered a home run and I think it’s going to generate some big business for them."
