- First, as he was on his way through the hallways, he walked past a good portion of the RAW roster, all of whom were cheering and/or vigorously applauding him as he went by.
- Then there were the fans. The Denver crowd, which had been hot all night, worked itself into an absolutely insane frenzy when he got into the ring. Chants of "welcome back," "holy shit," "this is awesome," and "yes" echoed throughout the arena. The outpouring of love from the fans was enough to move Goldberg to tears, and he thanked the fans for their neverending support, even now, twelve years after his last wrestling match.
- There was also Goldberg's connection with the kids. Before and after his promo, he walked around, shaking hands and hugging all of the children who were ringside. And one of the reasons he gave for coming back was because he missed giving the kids a superhero to cheer for.
- But perhaps the most heartwarming moment of all was when Goldberg pointed out that, for the first time in his career, his wife and his son were present at ringside for his appearance. Once he finished delivering his (awesome) promo, he went to ringside and hoisted his son up on his shoulder.
Heartwarming / Goldberg
His return to RAW on 10/17/16 was one continuous CMOH and a CMOA.
