Last week Drew McIntyre successfully defended the WWE Championship against Keith Lee in the main event on Raw. Immediately after the match Goldberg made his return and he challenged Drew McIntyre to a WWE Championship match at the Royal Rumble PPV.

Drew McIntyre was pulled from WWE Raw this week due to a positive COVID-19 test, but he did appear on the show in a video message where he answered Goldberg’s challenge.

McIntyre said that Goldberg let him down, and Goldberg let down his own legacy as well. Drew said out of respect for Goldberg he doesn’t want to accept his challenge because Goldberg is 20 years older than him. But that changed when Goldberg put his hands on him.

Drew then accepted the challenge for a WWE Championship match at the Royal Rumble, and told Goldberg that he’s next.
