That’s a lot. There have been so many matches throughout the history of WWE that standing out is a difficult task. While there are several matches that are great enough to stand above the rest, there are some matches that are much more infamous than famous. Now we know a rather important detail about a match that took place nearly nineteen years ago.

Back at WrestleMania 20, Goldberg faced Brock Lesnar in a special showdown match. Both men were leaving the company though, resulting in fans taunting both of them throughout. The two also spent several minutes of the match not making contact or using only basic moves. Jim Ross discussed the match during a recent episode of his Grilling JR podcast, revealing that both of them were paid $250,000 for the match, which ran about 13 minutes. Goldberg and Lesnar would both return to WWE in later years, with Lesnar defeating Goldberg in a rematch at WrestleMania 33.
They do have a history. Check out some of their matches against each other in WWE:
Opinion: That is a heck of a payday for two people who didn’t exactly put in their best effort for the match. For half a million dollars between them, you would think that one of them might have been trying a bit harder. The original Goldberg vs. Lesnar match is an all time example of a total misfire that can be blamed on more than one factor. Thankfully they redeemed themselves later, as that original match would have been one of the worst things to ever have on otherwise legendary resumes.
