Goldberg made quick work of Kevin Owens to claim the WWE Universal Championship at WWE Fastlane Monday (Manila time) in Milwaukee.

It only took the WCW legend 22 seconds to upend the champion, hitting him with a Spear and a Jackhammer to score the pinfall.

Owens wasted time on the outside and made Goldberg wait, but when he finally decided to get into the action, his ex-best friend and United States Champion Chris Jericho made a surprise appearance to distract the Prizefighter.

With the win, Goldberg will now go on to WrestleMania to defend his gold in a titanic clash against Brock Lesnar.
