This was the best match of the night that was worthy of the legends in attendance. It was a true throwback match harkening to the days of Hulk Hogan vs. Big John Studd.
McIntyre was about to say something when Goldberg’s music played and he came out.
Goldberg told him there couldn’t be a better representative as a WWE Champion, but he said McIntyre doesn’t have respect.
He said he heard what he said, but it wasn’t what he was thinking. Goldberg claimed that he thinks he’s better than every one of them in their primes and don’t pose a threat to him.
Goldberg said he was wrong and that’s where he stepped in. He said he’s not demanding anything or posing a threat, and he issued a challenge for the WWE Championship at the Royal Rumble.
McIntyre said he is full of respect, and said that fighting Goldberg would be like fighting his own dad since he’s not what he was and Goldberg knocked him down as the show ended.
This was a far better show than we expected and we hope this means we can expect better programming here on out.
Still, Goldberg at the end just didn’t work for WWE Raw Results. Wonder if Goldberg will win this in a squash match like he did when he beat the Fiend? At least he’s the prideful heel this time.
