Bobby Lashley Vs. Goldberg Official For WWE SummerSlam
"Da Man" challenges for the WWE title
As expected, WWE champion Bobby Lashley will defend his title against Goldberg at SummerSlam on August 21 in Las Vegas.
On Monday's Raw in Chicago, Lashley and MVP opened the show by talking up Lashley's dominance. This brought out Goldberg, who talked about how age didn't matter; if he's 55 or 105, he's still Goldberg, and said he would be facing Lashley at SummerSlam for the title.
After Goldberg left, Lashley and MVP began berating Goldberg's son Gage, who was in the front row. MVP told Gage that Lashley was going to end his father's career, which prompted Goldberg to come running back out to spear MVP.
This will be Goldberg's third-ever match at a SummerSlam. He competed in an Elimination Chamber match in 2003, and defeated Dolph Ziggler in 2019.
The current card for WWE SummerSlam, taking place Saturday, August 21 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, is as follows:
* WWE Universal: Roman Reigns (c) vs. John Cena
* WWE World: Bobby Lashley (c) vs. Goldberg
* Raw Women's: Nikki A.S.H. (c) vs. Charlotte Flair vs. Rhea Ripley
