Announcers are Tony and Scott

Report by Wids

Exclusive footage from last night after Sin, when JJ, Scott Steiner and Animal meet Flair, Luger and Buff backstage. Steiner and Flair hug!

Announcers talk about how Flair fooled everyone with getting Goldberg out and getting the title to stay with Steiner.

Here is the controversial Sid footage. Oh my God, that was gruesome. Kinda like Joe Theisman and LT.

Here comes Totally Buff to Funeral type music. They have suits and pallbearers are bringing out a coffin. On the TurnerTron (can we call it that anymore?) is a picture of Goldberg December 19something to January 14, 2001. Goldberg chant. Luger and Buff are hugging the other pallbearers, who are wearing suits. This whole Flair thing is pretty well done, no one predicted it, and it creates a super heel faction in WCW. Luger on the mic, mock upset. Luger talks about how Goldberg will never be with us ever again. Huge heat for Luger and Buff. Buff takes the mic. They are doing a great job here, mocking Goldberg in serious tones. They hug. Here comes the Chosen One in a suit with a guitar. JJ on the mic, he breaks down. Then he says Goldberg, you never ever… BEAT ME! The Chosen One was never on you list of opponents you beat! He says he was going to start his own streak, so choke on that. Luger brings out Steiner with Midajah, who has a black veil. Steiner runs down Sid and Sid’s injury. Steiner getting some cheers. Steiner talks about beating Goldberg. Steiner says Goldberg wanted a rematch, but he wasn’t man enough to stay on top. Steiner opens the coffin, which has Goldberg’s book, a spear and a jackhammer, and spits on it. Goldberg’s music plays, crowd pops huge, but Ric Flair emerges from the locker room as fade to
