Role-Play Number -]
Bill Goldberg took his second name in Raw Impact Wrestling… Mike Sanders was jackhammered by Da Man after a Stone Cold Stunner from Steve Austin took out the ‘above average’ superstar. Goldberg impressed once more and this week, he heads into his biggest challenge so far… a Handicap Match with Shelton Benjamin and his manager Ric Flair. Goldberg’s search for Paul Heyman has come to a halt… Goldberg can’t find Heyman’s whereabouts and his search in Miami drew a blank… So his focus has turned to Heyman’s federation and most importantly, one of his 2 opponents at Vendetta in ‘The One’ Tournament… Shelton Benjamin. Benjamin had the audacity to get in Goldberg’s face on Exile, he even dared to slap Goldberg across the face… Benjamin tried to get inside Goldberg’s head but there’s no-one better at Mind Games, than Bill Goldberg! Goldberg has a score to settle with Shelton Benjamin… and he’s sure as hell gonna’ scare the shit into him before their match at Defiance. Goldberg wants to beat Shelton Benjamin… he’d even love to take out the 16time World Champion Ric Flair. Goldberg is looking to take a couple of scalps going into Vendetta… will Shelton get a small glimpse of what awaits him at vendetta or will the number’s game be too much for Bill Goldberg?!
The scene opens inside a gun store; the man behind the counter is polishing what looks to be some kind of shotgun rifle. The store is mostly wooden and looking quite old-fashioned, it almost seems like a log cabin but we’re in the town centre. The squeaky door at the front is opened and into the room enter Da Man… Da Powerhouse… Bill Goldberg. Goldberg’s dressed in a black T-shirt with “You’re Next” printed on the front and his logo on the back, as well as pair of black tracksuit bottoms with 1 white stripe running down the side. Goldberg walks straight up to the counter, the man puts the gun behind the counter. He has a cocktail stick in his mouth, he drops it into the bin at his feet… Goldberg walks to the counter and leans on it.
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: Maybe you can help me...
'Gun Shop Owner' Pete: What kind of help?
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: Nothin’ special, just want some info…
'Gun Shop Owner' Pete: Shoot.
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: I was thinkin’ of gettin’ a real man’s gun… what would ya recommend?
'Gun Shop Owner' Pete: Man’s gun… hmm… Nothing says “back off” better than a double-barrelled rifle… and we’re talking totally legit man.
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: Double-barrelled rifle, ehh? Interestin’… So… what’s the most pathetic gun you got on offer?
'Gun Shop Owner' Pete: Pfft… no doubt about it… Nothing says “I’m a big pussy” more than a tazer man.
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: Hahaha… Yeah, you’d have to be a real big pussy to use one of those, ehh?
'Gun Shop Owner' Pete: Yeah man.
Goldberg stops leaning over the counter, he turns away and begins to leave the shop.
'Gun Shop Owner' Pete: Hey, ain’t you gonna’ get a gun, man?
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: Ohh no… I got everythin’ I needed already.
Goldberg walks out of the shop and he walks across the road, he sits down on a wall… Goldberg looks around for a second and then, he turns and looks at the camera. Goldberg’s face is serious and he begins to speak…
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: Looks like you’re a real big pussy, ehh Shelton?! A damn tazer… that’s just damn pathetic. I suppose you think it’s ironic, huh? Using the same damn weapon that ended the streak… yeah, it took a gun to take me down… Oh, don’t think I’ve forgotten… Oh no, I remember! See… it takes a real man to come down to the ring and fight… it takes a real man to come out and face Bill Goldberg 1 on 1… knowing exactly what the damn consequence is gonna’ be! Then, there’s pussies like you… like Flair… and like Hall and Nash in Dubbya Cee Dubbya… Too scared to fight man-to-man… Too scared to accept their fate… Too much fear in their hearts to face Bill Goldberg! Yeah… and that’s what it’s all about… FEAR! You fear me, Shelton… You fear me, Ric! You’ve watched the tapes… You’ve witnessed the streak… You’ve seen what I’m capable of… AND YOU’RE SCARED!
Goldberg pulls out a tazer from his pocket, he looks down at it… Goldberg’s face tightens in anger looking at the weapon. He looks up with a real purpose on his face.
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: There ain’t nothin’ gonna’ stop me boys… Not you, Shelton… not you, Ric… Not even a damn tazer’s gonna’ stop Bill Goldberg this time! There ain’t a damn thing that can stop me… I’m the unstoppable force in Are Eyy Dubbya… I’M DA MAN… DA POWERHOUSE… And soon, you pair of pussies… You’re gonna be my next victims!
Goldberg snaps the tazer into 2 bits, he then tosses it behind him, Goldberg turns back to the camera, the rage is still clearly flowing through his body and the anger is written all across his face.
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: I suppose you think we’re now even, ehh? You’re guessin’ it must be OVER! Ohh, you couldn’t be more wrong… WE’RE JUST GETTIN’ STARTED! IT’S JUST THE BEGINNING! Slappin’ me across the face… shootin’ me with a damn tazer… you made 2 very big mistakes… And it will cost you! You will pay with your bodies… your careers… YOUR LIVES… I will destroy everythin’ you ever had… And it’ll all be gone in just a damn second… Don’t blink Shelton, you ain’t got time! Time has already run out… The clock has stopped ticking… It’s time for PAYBACK! It’s time for me to get MY REVENGE! And you’re gonna’ feel pain… like you’ve NEVER felt before
Goldberg’s finger is pointing at the screen as he says it, Goldberg’s stare at the camera finally breaks and the finger is slowly lowered. Goldberg then continues to speak again.
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: Flair… you got quite a damn legacy behind ya… 16 World Titles, real impressive… I got just 1 question for ya Flair, how the hell did ya lose the title 16-times?! You might be a damn good champion… but you ain’t the best… YOU’RE NOT UNSTOPPABLE! Face it Flair, you’re not the best any more… You ain’t got it in ya. But think back Flair, even in your prime… could ya have beaten Bill Goldberg?! Could ya’ have done it?! The answer is simple Flair… NO! You couldn’t beat me then… YOU CAN’T BEAT ME NOW… So I’m gonna’ make it easier on ya at Defiance… Since you can’t seem to bring your career to an end… I guess I’ll have to do it for ya’! Career’s over Flair… Your ass has been booked in for retirement! And yeah… I’m gonna’ enjoy kickin’ your wrinkled-up ass into a damn wheelchair. Hahaha…
Goldberg continues to laugh until the line doesn’t entertain him any more, he regains his composure and begins to talk again.
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: Flair, maybe you could give Shelton some words of wisdom before the match… maybe you could give him some smart advice… DON’T TURN UP! I know you won’t Flair, you may have to cheat… you may be a pussy… but you’re too stupid to not turn up! So… prepare to meet your destiny at Defiance… PREPARE TO MEET YOUR END! 2 on 1… There’s only 1 number’s game involved… Which one of you punks wants to be number 1… and who wants to be number 2? Take your pick boys…
Goldberg rubs his chin. Goldberg then reaches into the pocket of his trousers, he pulls out a magic wand… and a 5-dollar bill.
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: I got a magic trick of my own, Benjamin… and all I need is this 5-dollar bill. You see, this 5-dollar bill… that’s your chances of beatin’ Bill Goldberg… That’s your chances of winnin’ this handicap match… That’s your chances of SURVIVING! Ohh and 1 more thing… that’s your chances BEFORE THE MATCH!
Goldberg places the bill in his hand and waves the wand over the dollar bill.
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: Now, if I wave my magic wand… we’ll see what your damn chances are after the match!
Goldberg then begins to tear the 5-dollar bill into little pieces, he tosses the little bits up into the air so that they cascade down around him…
'Da Powerhouse' Goldberg: You ain’t got a hope in hell, Benjamin… Consider yourself FINISHED… Cos’ YOU’RE NEXT SHELTON BENJAMIN… YOU’RE… NEXT!!!
Goldberg grins and walks away from the wall where he was sitting, as the scene fades to static… Goldberg has sent his final message to Shelton Benjamin and Ric Flair before their Handicap Match. Goldberg wants payback for being attacked, he plans on getting more than just even… Will Goldberg get revenge for his attack on this week’s Defiance?
