Bill Goldberg says he would do a match against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 29 then backtracks ... kind of

Twitter, once again, proves to be a source of news that probably isn't really news.

Just a short while ago, a followers of Jim Ross suggested that WWE should try to book a rematch between Bill Goldberg and Brock Lesnar for WrestleMania 29 next year. Ross, of course, responded that something like that would be highly unlikely to ever take place, which is true.

Then Goldberg decided to fuel the flames by tweeting back to Ross with three simple words that started a brief firestorm.

"I'd do it," he tweeted.

Naturally, Twitter lit up and every pro wrestling fan everywhere got all eager to jump in and talk about the possibilities, which are at least somewhat feasible seeing as Lesnar is likely on his way back to WWE for WrestleMania next year.

Because he seemingly didn't realize the power of the Internet, Goldberg quickly backtracked, in a way, with his next tweet.

"Guess I should think before I speak next time."

Oh, you knew what you were doing, Bill. You had to because you're a pro wrestler who knows the game, just like Lesnar, just like Ross. And just like the rest of us who feed into it because there's definitely a part of us that wants to see if you and Brock can make up for the abomination of a match you had before leaving WWE back in 2004 at WrestleMania 20.

Is there a chance in hell this match happens? No. But would anyone be interested in it if there even was a shot at it? Anyone at all?
