Bill Goldberg is back on top of the WWE mountain.
The longtime pro wrestling superstar continued his comeback tour Sunday night by winning the WWE Universal title in a squash match over Kevin Owens at “WWE Fastlane” in Milwaukee.
It took Goldberg just 23 seconds to win the belt from Owens, who’s been the champion since late August.
Goldberg is expected to defend the title against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 33 on April 2 in Orlando.
The universal title is just the latest in a long line of accolades in the business for the 50-year-old. Goldberg, of course, rose to prominence in the late 1990s as WCW made him the company’s biggest draw. He won his first 155 matches and the WCW world heavyweight title during his run.
Goldberg eventually landed with WWE after Vince McMahon’s company bought WCW. He won the heavyweight title there, too.
Here are the rest of the results from “Fastlane,” WWE’s final pay-per-view show before WrestleMania:
–Akira Tozawa and Rich Swann defeated Brian Kendrick and Noam Dar (preshow)
