Goldberg says that Kevin Owens is all talk.
He says he's in a good mood.
He says that he's six days away from being champ.
He promises us: "Spear. Jackhammer. 1-2-3. Goldberg becomes champion."
The Goldberg chants start up again.
He is sweating A LOT, you guys.
He is also promising a lot of people that he's going to win.
Like, he lists them all and everything.
He's about to leave, then Kevin Owens' music hits, and he comes out, dressed in a suit again.
He stays up at the top of the ramp.
KO says that he's in a good mood, too, because he gets to tell Goldberg to his face how he's going to beat him.
He talks about how he promised himself that he was going to grab this companry by the throat.
He lists all the guys he beat along the way to get to today, and then he says that Goldberg is next.
Goldberg says that the speech pissed him off, and he says "Why wait till Sunday?"
KO says that Green Bay doesn't deserve to see him fight.
He says that Sunday, the Goldberg chant dies.

Well, at least we got Goldberg out of the way early so we can move on to more important things.
The New Day doing stuff.
The New Day have new shirts where they appear as popsicles.
They are terrible.
The shirts, not the New Day, although at this point, I'm not even sure I can defend them any more.
They say they're facing the Shining Stars, then announce that's a mistake, the Shining Stars are facing Big Show later.
Turns out they're actually facing Rusev & Jinder Mahal.
They know this because there's an envelope or whatever.

The audience is SILENT, by the way, and with good cause.
It is terribly unfunny.
I was so discouraged by the awfulness of that Oscars joke, I didn't even pay attention to the first minutes of this meaningless match, but apparently this happened:
The "hard body" of @JinderMahal just got SPLASHED by @WWEBigE! #RAW #NewDayRocks pic.twitter.com/zTQlVT2RHu— WWE Universe (@WWEUniverse) February 28, 2017

Back from the break, and the heels are in control.
Woods is being worked over and worn down, by the bigger men.
Oh yeah, didn't I mention, it's Woods and Big E. Kofi's on the outside.
Woods keeps getting beat down, and I can't believe I'm still awake.
Woods hits an Enzuigiri on Rusev and both E and Mahal are tagged in.
Mahal gets Belly to Bellied a bunch of times, then Big E splashes him, and Woods is tagged in.
He hits a flying cross body on Mahal but the pinfall is broken up by Rusev.
Kofi starts talking to Lana and Rusev stops doing wrestling things to yell at him.
Woods takes advantage with an O'Connor roll and a Bridge.

WINNERS: The New Day
But are they winners? Are they?
I mean, they're involved in this bullshit, so no, not really.
Backstage with Enzo & Cass
Enzo is being incredibly annoying.
So what else is new?
Backstage with Cesaro & Sheamus
They're talking about how they just need to bide their time until they get another shot at the tag titles.
Samoa Joe shows up and vaguely talks trash to Cesaro.
Sheamus wants to fight him, Cesaro says he'll handle it.
PLEASE CAN WE SEE THAT MATCH NOW THANK YOU.
Backstage with Stephanie McMahon & Mick Foley
Stephanie says she needs to apologize to Mick.
Not for threatening to have him killed last week.
For forgetting that he's a feeble, weak, broken shell of a man, and he never should have been given this job.
She leaves and Mick doesn't say anything.
