Every time someone made a debut or a stud athlete got in the ring, you would hear the name Goldberg reverberate throughout the building and Paul, by saying his name, got it to happen.

Paul says you think about all of the titles Goldberg has won and the legends Goldberg beat. You think about all of the people who were beaten and victimized and conquered by Goldberg. Goldberg's career was running parallel to his client's, Brock Lesnar. What keeps Paul up at night is that Goldberg is still one up on Brock Lesnar. That is why he has been authorized to come out tonight and let the entire WWE Universe know that Bill Goldberg is hereby challenged to a fight. One on one. Beast versus the Myth. Icon versus Icon. Anywhere... anyplace. Brock Lesnar versus Goldberg.
