Almost all the reactions are negative. The ones which are positive are a general comment and nothing specific to Goldberg. It’s safe to say nobody is appreciating this news!

Goldberg is up for the WWE Championship for the second time in 2021

The veteran Superstar had previously stated that his WWE contract calls for two matches a year. He already had a shot at the WWE Championship title against Drew McIntyre at Royal Rumble 2021 where he failed. If he does go up against Bobby Lashley at SummerSlam, it’ll be the second time.

There’s a high chance Lashley will come out on top at this match.

Possible reasons WWE booked this match

One of the reasons WWE booked this match is because it failed to reach a contract agreement with Brock Lesnar. Additionally, it was important to book the WWE Champion against someone for SummerSlam. It can’t be Drew McIntyre since the stipulation for their last match was if Lashley wins, McIntyre cannot challenge for the title as long as The Almighty is champion.

Secondly, since Lashley and Goldberg are being rumoured for SummerSlam, this means Kofi Kingston won’t come out on top at Money in the Bank against Lashley. In fact, it’s clear that Kingston was a placeholder to keep Lashley on TV while WWE searches for Lashley’s next huge rival. The company will probably need to book The New Day for tag team feuds. And for that, Kingston needs to not be in a feud with Lashley.

Finally, Lashley vs Goldberg could again be a match to give the WWE Champion an opponent for a major PPV, probably the biggest one of 2021. The dream match Lashley vs Lesnar will take a while, and until then, the fans need to keep witnessing the WWE Champion on screen with other opponents.
