Latest From FPC on SportsCastr

Rob Van Dam finally answered for his actions at Bound For Glory. He returned with Katie Forbes and was going to explain himself, but said no one would understand since they weren’t as great as RVD. Tommy Dreamer came out to try and set up a match between RVD and Rhino, who was betrayed by RVD. Rob passed, but Rhino wouldn’t let him get away that easy.

ODB returned on the show, and cut a promo about her food truck burning down. Impact donated all of the profits from the show to supporting ODB, which is a nice gesture. Of course a heel had to come out and capitalize on real life heat, and this time it was Knockouts Champ Taya Valkyrie. This lead to a solid main event between the two, with ODB getting the win.

Goldberg on Broken Skull Sessions

The next guest on Stone Cold’s new WWE Network show has been revealed as Bill Goldberg. After the great reception that the first episode got with The Undertaker, a big guest was sure to be in line for episode two. Austin went out and got one of the biggest names in wrestling: Goldberg!

It will make for an interesting listen to be sure. These two were on opposite side of the Monday Night Wars as the biggest stars on their shows. It should be a great episode as the two will have lots to talk about.

Brock Lesnar’s Potential Wrestlemania Opponents?

According to reports (h/t Talksport), there are two potential options for Brock Lesnar’s Wrestlemania opponent. One option is for Lesnar to face Cain Velasquez in a rubber match from Crown Jewel. At that show, Lesnar beat Velasquez in just a few minutes with a Kimura Lock. 

The second option for Brock Lesnar is a match with Tyson Fury. Fury made his wrestling debut at Crown Jewel as well, defeating Braun Strowman by countout. It is being reported that Vince McMahon would have a hard time passing up a Fury-Lesnar match if Fury beats Deonte Wilder to become WBC Heavyweight Champion in February.
