Everyone stopped giving a fuck about the goku vs vegeta fight bullshit after the saiyajin saga.
The buu saga fight was unwated and was an absolute shitfest with terrible fight choreography and the editors wanted it more then the fanbase did.
Fucks sake, Vegeta was supposed to be out showing off his new SSJ2 form and being the hero and sacrificing himself to stop the legendary demon existence known as Buu while Piccolo fell to the Majin stamp and became full evil unleashing power that's laid dormant in him. Becoming a beyond super saiyajin level 2 threat.
The fight between him and Goku was supposed to be an updated fight between him and an evil more powerful piccolo.
And Piccolo liked being evil and was thinking about killing Gohan.
Needed vegeta vs goku 2.0 that no one asked for and toriyama was so over that he made almost the entire damned thing happen offscreen and no one in the fandom gave a fuck about or even brought up again.
I'm not the only one who just fast forwarded through that nonsense to see vegeta take on buu right?
