THE GOLDBERG ERA BEGINS
The capacity crowd nearly blew the roof off the arena in Washington D.C. when the new World Heavyweight Champion, Goldberg, made his way to the ring. With the gold in hand, Goldberg was there to tell everybody to believe the hype. Before, Goldberg could get very much out, however, Eric Bischoff came down to personally congratulate the new champ. Bischoff then took credit for creating Goldberg. Needless to say, Goldberg didn't take to kindly to Bischoff's comments. The champ let the boss know he was upset by Spearing him to the ground.
The new World Heavyweight Champion didn't have long to celebrate his victory, as he was then slated to defend his title against Chris Jericho. To make matters worse, Eric Bischoff served as the special outside enforcer. With the numbers against him, Goldberg's chances of victory dwindled. But like a true champion, he fought back and defeated Y2J.
RAW cut in live to the red carpet of The Rock's new movie "The Rundown." An emotional Rock thanked his fans for making him the man that he is today.
At Unforgiven, Shane McMahon risked life and limb in an attempt to defeat Kane in their Last Man Standing Match. Unfortunately for Shane, the risks he took landed him in the hospital. RAW cameras caught Shane resting in his hospital bed. From there, he had a message for Kane. But before he could finish it, Kane appeared in Shane's hospital room. The Big Red Monster then tore an already weakened Shane McMahon to pieces.
Also on RAW, an upset Triple H told the fans that they need him more than he needs them in a rather cryptic message.
