Goldberg! Enter the ring and speak to Drew. “There can’t be someone better to represent WWE. You have speed, athleticism, power. But the only thing you don’t have is respect. I heard what you said. But it’s not what you were thinking. I know when you see these legends, You think they are broke, and that at your best you are better than them. You think that neither is a threat to you. But my friend, there you are wrong, and that’s where I come in. It’s about respect. So don’t think I come here asking for anything. Do not think that I am coming to threaten you. No sir, I have come to challenge you to combat in Royal Rumble “, Goldberg launches.

McIntyre replies that fighting him would be like fighting his own father and laughs. Goldberg laughs and shoves him down, just to close the broadcast.
