WWE RAW ran very late this week, and due to those timing issues they were unable to show everything they intended. There was hope that Goldberg would be able to help fix things, but that didn’t happen either.
Drew McIntyre didn’t have a chance to cut the promo that brought out Goldberg. Instead, Goldberg came out on his own. McIntyre was supposed to say degrading things about legends, but that didn’t happen.
According to Fightful, some backstage were hopeful that Goldberg would go out and fix things. He didn’t help the situation as the lines he recited were the ones given to him. That didn’t clear anything up at all.
Those that we spoke to backstage say that they were hopeful that Goldberg would ad-lib during the promo to make up for things, but understand that he was just delivering the lines as instructed.
Drew McIntyre and Goldberg will hopefully have a better chance to tell their story in the weeks to come. WWE certainly didn’t give them much time this week to explain why Goldberg came out, and Goldberg didn’t take the opportunity to clear things up either.
