He said he doesn’t believe the hype surrounding Goldberg, and he never did. He has a game plan for Goldberg, and he’s going to prove everyone wrong again. He doesn’t have to beat Goldberg at Fastlane, he just has to outlast him. He waited his entire life to be the champion, and he’s not giving it up. He’s going to prove to Goldberg and everyone that superheroes don’t exist. “And as far as Chris Jericho goes … ” Owens then dropped the microphone and walked out.
