WWE's Goldberg: I Don't Come Back & Choose The People I'm Going To Go After
Goldberg challenges Bobby Lashley at WWE SummerSlam 2021
Goldberg says he doesn't necessarily pick the people he faces when he returns to WWE, but he would have chosen Bobby Lashley if given the opportunity.
Goldberg will challenge Lashley for the WWE Championship at SummerSlam 2021 next weekend, having returned to Monday Night Raw to confront The All Mighty on June 19.
The WWE Hall Of Famer feels Lashley has not represented the Championship appropriately and is glad to be going after the reigning champion.
Speaking to WWE India, Goldberg said: "I don't come back and choose the people I'm going to go after. If I could have come back and chosen one person to go after, it would have been Bobby Lashley.
"There is a way you should represent the championship title and I don't believe he's been doing it properly. He's very callous. In this match, my name should not be Goldberg, it should be karma. He deserves a lot of things coming to him and I will hopefully be the guy who delivers that."
Having lost his last two matches in WWE, against Braun Strowman and Drew McIntrye, Goldberg was asked why the outcome of this bout with Lashley would be different.
Goldberg responded: "My last outings have fallen short of a number of reasons. I plan to change the outcome of this one and have it not be a resurgence of me coming back for one night, doing my thing, and walking off into the sunset, riding off into the sunset.
"I put a lot of time and effort into the preparation they gave me, about double the time they usually do to prepare for a match. I'm excited. Bobby Lashley poses a very big threat. There are few people who can match up to him physically and mentally. I still think I'm one of them.
"At 53 years old, as I told him, it doesn't matter if I'm 25, 35, 55, or 105, I'm bringing some pain with me. The people he's run over in the past are nothing like me. I'm gonna bring something to the fight that I don't think he's ever seen."
