Many fans falsely claim that Booker T defeated Goldberg “clean” here (just because the match had the stipulation of “Anything Goes”). But it was anything but a clean victory as Jeff Jarrett attacked Goldberg with a steel chair and then Ernest Miller attacked him as well. Only that way Booker T was able to win this match.
