Bobby Lashley: WWE Crown Jewel Match With Goldberg Is A Passing Of The Torch
Lashley and Goldberg do battle at WWE Crown Jewel 2021
Bobby Lashley says his match with Goldberg at WWE Crown Jewel 2021 will represent a 'passing of the guard' in which The All Mighty becomes the established warrior who comes back to challenge the Champions.
Lashley and Goldberg are set to do battle in a No Holds Barred Match in Saudi Arabia on Thursday, and Lashley says the bout will see him take over Goldberg's mantle within the company.
Speaking on Busted Open Radio, Lashley said: "I think I have the advantage. Across the board, I don’t see where he has the advantage in any kind of match.
"Goldberg is Goldberg and will always be Goldberg. He comes out there and destroys people, but I almost see this match as the passing of the guard. Eventually, I’m going to be slowed down and tired to an extent. I think I’m that guy who comes back to disrupt peoples shine when they are doing big things. I’ll come back and challenge the champ because I’ve established myself.
"Through this matchup with Goldberg, it’s to establish myself on another level as that guy. Across that board, of course he has the opportunity to pull something out and catch a win over me but I think ultimately, it’s my time and he’s passing that Goldberg torch over to me where it’s now the Lashley torch and it’s Lashley that comes back to take out the champion in years to come."
