WWE Raw Results returned to a recap of last week’s WWE Championship match between Drew McIntyre and Keith Lee, followed by Goldberg’s challenge that came out of nowhere and was supposed to get us excited.
Drew McIntyre responded to Goldberg’s challenge by starting out how it was a dream scenario to wrestle in front of the Legends but he was rudely interrupted before he could thank them.
He said he didn’t expect Goldberg to come out, and admitted that he’s one of his all time favorites and said when he met him in person that he let him down.
He added that Goldberg not only let him down, but his entire legacy and told Goldberg he put words in his mouth and said he has nothing but respect for others.
He pointed out that the WWE Championship has alluded Goldberg during his career and he didn’t intend to accept but he changed his mind when Goldberg laid his hands on him.
He told Goldberg he’s next at the Royal Rumble.
It switched to Riddle backstage as he explained that he can’t wait for his match tonight, and that it’s going to be absolutely awesome when he faces Bobby Lashley.
He compared it to the perfect pizza that has everything, and Lucha House Party looked confused and asked him if he’s hungry.
Riddle admitted he is, but used the pizza as a metaphor for beating Lashley.
They told him they hope he wins and to watch his back, but Riddle pointed out that’s physically impossible.
