The WWE Universal Title changed hands on Sunday night when Goldberg defeated Kevin Owens to become the new champion at WWE Fastlane. Goldberg made short work of Kevin Owens after Chris Jericho came out to distract the champion, and all it took was a spear and a Jackhammer to put Owens away.
Goldberg will now be taking the big red belt to WrestleMania 33 in Orlando where he will defend it against Brock Lesnar on April 2nd. When he carries the belt into Mania he’ll have his own custom plates on the strap and WWE has released a new video which shows the plates being switched out.
It’s cool to see new plates on the belt, but it’s also bittersweet watching KO’s plates get removed. Depending on how you feel about the title change that took place Sunday night, the video below is either going to make you very happy, or very sad.
Kassius Ohno recently made his triumphant return to NXT and he recently spoke to WWE.com about what he hopes to accomplish now that he’s back. Everyone knows that the NXT Champion usually becomes the face of the brand while they hold the title and Ohno’s current goal is to win the belt.
“My focus is zeroed in on the NXT Championship. I have accomplished everything I’ve ever wanted, everywhere I’ve ever been. Championships, tournaments, you name it. The NXT Championship is something that I don’t just want, it’s what I need. I plan to become the face and ambassador of NXT. I want to bring the absolute best in-ring action all over the world.”
