After the match, Strowman cuts a promo on Foley for not giving him competition, and he says he’s coming to find Foley.

Owens says it would be the biggest main event in WrestleMania history, but that he’s not sure he can fight his best friend. Goldberg’s music hits and the former WCW Champion makes his way to the ring. Goldberg tells them to either get out of his way and let him speak, or fight him two-on-one right now.

Goldberg gets in Owens’ face and mentions that he doesn’t have an opponent for Fastlane yet. Goldberg challenges Owens to a match at Fastlane for his Universal Title, then Jericho interrupts. Jericho says Goldberg can’t come down and make his own matches, and people who do that get put on “the list.” Goldberg takes Jericho’s list and writes his name on it himself. Jericho says he never liked Goldberg, then accepts Goldberg’s challenge on Owens’ behalf — which Owens isn’t happy about. Goldberg says Owens and his Universal Title are next. Goldberg heads to the back while Owens yells at Jericho for accepting the challenge for him.

– We go backstage where Owens cuts a promo on Jericho for getting him in a match against Goldberg. Jericho says he’s always helped Owens win before, and he will this time too, but Owens still isn’t pleased.
