The scene opens in what looks to be the heart of Texas, there’s a big, white mansion with a black gate. A car pulls up to it; it’s a pretty speedy-looking Chevrolet… The car gets to the gate and then, he reverses back and puts the car half in the ditch, half on the road but out of sight from the house. The man driving the car gets out and look, it’s BILL GOLDBERG… Goldberg closes the door and walks over to the big, black steel security gates. He puts both hands on top of the tall gates and then, he pulls himself up and drops himself over the top and onto the other side of the gate. We follow Goldberg up the path to the house; it must be a 200-yard walk… The garden in front of the house is well kept, lots of trees, pretty flowers, everything is kept in excellent order. Goldberg walks up the front steps to the front entrance, he rings the doorbell and we hear a shuffle of feet…
'Unknown' Woman: Comin’ Stevie… hol’ on!
We hear a few seconds of mad dashing round for around 10 seconds and then, the footsteps come towards the door… The door opens and standing at the door in a black dress with a white apron over the front, is none other than STONE COLD’S WIFE DEBRA! My god, what a surprise for Debra… Bill Goldberg’s standing in her door.
'Austin's Wife' Debra: Dear gawd… what the hell are you doin’ here, Bill? Steve’s gonna’ be back any secon’…
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: That ain’t no way to welcome a guest Debra… Can I come in?
'Austin's Wife' Debra: Err… Bill, I dun’ think that’s gonna’ be a good idea… Steve’s gonna’ be here…
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: Any second… so you just told me.
Goldberg doesn’t take no for an answer and he walks inside the house, Debra closes the front door behind him. Bill stands looking around in the corridor.
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: What are ya cookin’, Debra?
'Austin's Wife' Debra: Some cookies for Steve…
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: You not gonna’ offer me one, huh?
'Austin's Wife' Debra: I made ‘em for Steve… *Debra begins to look a little intimidated by Goldberg’s glare* Aw’right, I’ll get’cha one but that’s all you’re havin’.
Debra heads off to the kitchen to get a cookie; she takes it off a plate… With her back turned, Goldberg walks in behind her. She puts the cookie onto another plate and then, she begins to turn around to take the cookie to Goldberg, who she thinks is still waiting in the corridor. Instead, she turns straight into Bill Goldberg… She’s taken aback in a little shock by his presence. Goldberg stands there, Debra is trapped against the side about 40 centimetres away from Goldberg… Goldberg takes the cookie and begins to eat in front of Debra.
'Austin's Wife' Debra: How is it?
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: I’ve had better.
Goldberg puts the plate down on the side, he then leans in very close to Debra… Debra moves her face back to try and get away from Goldberg. Goldberg begins to whisper something in a threatening voice to Debra.
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: Are you scared, Debra? Answer me… look in my eyes… DO YOU FEAR ME?
Goldberg pulls Debra’s face round to look at Goldberg in his eyes… She doesn’t say anything but she is clearly shaking. Goldberg begins to laugh at her sorry start but he doesn’t move back to make her feel at more ease, he just begins to speak again.
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: Intimidated, ehh? You shouldn’t be… You have nothin’ to fear, Debra. I wouldn’t lay a finger on ya’… I wouldn’t even consider touchin’ you… Nor your damn cookies ever again. But Debra... Look at me Debra.
Debra is trying to hide her eyes from Goldberg’s, Goldberg moves her face to look him in the eyes again.
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: Your husband… HE SHOULD BE SCARED… Ohh yeah, he should be VERY scared! Cos’ this Thursday Night, Lil’ Stevie’s gonna’ meet his destiny… Steve Austin’s goin’ to look at his fate, in the flesh… The Texas Rattlesnake is goin’ to come to realise somethin’… That there’s a tougher… MORE DESTRUCTIVE… sonuvabitch than ‘Stone Cold’… Steve… AUSTIN! Yeah… and you’re lookin’ at that sonuvabitch Debra… You’re lookin’ at BILL… GOLDBERG!
Debra is still shaking, she tries to get away from Bill but Bill holds her against the side… He begins to speak again.
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: Do ya worry about your husband, Debra? Do ya’ fear for his safety? Huh?
'Austin's Wife' Debra: Of course, I do Bill…
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: Then, worry more than ever, Debra… You should be sick with worry! Cos this Thursday Night… you should fear for his safety… you should worry that he won’t return home… YOU SHOULD FEAR FOR STEVE’S LIFE… Cos when I’m done with him, THERE AIN’T GONNA’ BE MUCH LEFT!
'Austin's Wife' Debra: Get away, Bill…
Debra slips under Bill’s arm and moves into the open, she dashes for the phone… But Goldberg grabs the cord for the phone and wrenches it away. Debra looks a little aghast, as Bill speaks again.
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: Debra… there’s no escape from me… Your husband, he’s got a one-way ticket to hell… AND I’M TAKIN’ HIM THERE! Ohh and it’s gonna’ be 1 hell of a ride… Steve’s gonna’ feel unbelievable pain… I’m gonna’ tear him apart… and I’M GONNA SMASH HIM… and toss him around like a ragdoll! I’m gonna’ destroy his puny ass… and MAKE HIM… THE NEXT… VICTIM!
Goldberg walks towards Debra again, she cowers a bit as he gets closer and closer… Goldberg sticks his arm out, Debra dips out of the way but Goldberg is only going to grab the photo behind her. The fear in Debra’s eyes was obvious.
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: Nice picture… Real nice picture. Don’t ya think it’s a damn shame that there’s only gonna’ be 1 of you left come Vendetta? Cos Steve, he ain’t comin’ home Thursday Night… He’s got a date with the nurse… Straight after, I’ve beaten the livin’ hell outta’ him… haha!
'Austin's Wife' Debra: You’re sick in the head, Bill…
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: You’re right, Debra… I am… And that’s just why there ain’t a damn person that’s gonna’ stop me… Raw Impact Wrestling, I’m takin’ it over… I’m gonna’ dominate Are Eyy Dubbya, just like I did in Dubbya Cee Dubbya… I’m just addin’ a few more bitches to my list… I’m taking some more numbers… And your Steve, he’s NUMBER 5… and that means, STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN’S NEXT… YOU’RE NEXT… STEVIE! Haha…
Goldberg drops the photo… He pretends to look a little shocked as the glass on the front of the photo smashes.
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: It must’a slipped Debra… I’m sorry… Real sorry, haha… Word of advice, Debra… Look after your photos… Hold onto them TIGHT! Cos you’re only memory of Steve from Thursday Night… will be those photos! You gonna’ miss him, ehh?
Debra doesn’t even reply, she’s just leaning on the floor crying… Goldberg has made Stone Cold’s wife burst into tears, fearing for her life and her husband’s.
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: Your tears won’t save your husband… Your prayers won’t bring him back on Thursday Night. I’m gonna’ end Stone Cold Steve Austin… I’m gonna’ finish him ONCE AND FOR ALL! No-one can save him now… NOT YOU… NOT THE CORPORATION… NOT EVEN THE RATTLESNAKE HIMSELF… Cos Thursday Night, Austin’s gonna’ be taken outta’ the game! The Bionic Redneck is gonna’ be taken out by DA MAN… DA POWERHOUSE… and yeah, it’s what everyone’s been waitin’ for… The match… Austin versus Goldberg… Cos everyone knows, there ain’t a damn way Austin can beat Bill Goldberg… Austin’s nothin’ but the next notch on my rope… MY NEXT… BITCH! Haha…
Goldberg walks over to Debra, he holds her face… and speaks to her like she is a helpless piece of trash.
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: Can ya take a message, Debra? Can your blonde cope with takin’ a message, huh?
Debra doesn’t say anything, she’s just petrified… Goldberg nods her head for her.
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: Good. You tell Steve this… There’s only gonna’ be 1 winner of ‘The One’ Tournament… There’s only gonna’ be 1 person that survives… AND THAT’S GONNA’ BE ME… BILL GOLDBERG! You tell him that he can forget winning…and just think of SURVIVAL… Cos if I have my way… and I will have my way, Austin won’t survive Thursday Night… HE WON’T SURVIVE… ME!
Goldberg looks at Debra 1 last time…
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: And if your brain can’t cope with that… If you can’t remember what I just said… You remember these 3 words… and you make damn sure Austin knows them… You tell him over and over again, just to make sure… Tell Austin to… BELIEVE THE HYPE. BELIEVE… THE HYPE!!!
Goldberg lets go of Debra’s face and begins to back off… he closes the kitchen door, as the scene fades to static with Debra sitting on the floor. Her make-up has run down her face from the tears she has shed and she is shaking. But can Goldberg intimidate Stone Cold Steve Austin and Shelton Benjamin… Can Bill Goldberg defeat Shelton Benjamin to become ‘The One’ this Thursday Night at Vendetta?
