Previously, Goldberg had revealed he only needs to do two matches a year as per his WWE contract. His first match of 2021 was against Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship title at Royal Rumble.

Goldberg wants to face Roman Reigns or John Cena after Bobby Lashley

The conversation came up when Goldberg was asked if he was Team Cena or Team Reigns for the upcoming SummerSlam.

“I am team neither one of them,” said Goldberg.

In fact, he wants to be the opponent standing across from them in the ring. First, he wants to take care of Bobby Lashley. However, following that, he wants to make John Cena or Roman Reigns his next “victims”.

“I am a fan of both of them, for what they’ve done individually. For what Roman has been able to do for the past couple of years. I think it’s fantastic, I think Paul Heyman has a lot to do with that. I would love a piece of Roman Reigns, maybe even more so would I like to get my hands around Cena’s throat.”

Considering he has more than one match left in his contract, he could have a match with both of them. However, it would be tricky to put him in a storyline with Cena and Reigns considering the feud between The Tribal Chief and the sixteen-time World Chamion has a high chance of not ending at SummerSlam 2021.
