Bischoff looked completely disheartened after knowing about this rematch. Most of WWE pundits and fans expected Goldberg’s return. That’s because in their previous encounter at SummerSlam 2021, Lashley not only dominated an easy win against Goldberg, but after the match, he even attacked his son Gage Goldberg.

Since then, everyone believed that WWE will surely plot a story for Goldberg to take his revenge. And finally, after around two months, the rematch has been scheduled.

The WWE Universe has had mixed emotions for this rematch. Eric Bischoff, the veteran of the sport, was the first one to speak about it. He reacted to Goldberg’s saying that ‘he will even kill Lashley’. Bischoff said, “The minute that happens, you’ve lost the audience. I don’t know how to say this without saying it so I’ll take whatever s**t I take, but they know you’re not going to deliver.”

Bischoff also stated Goldberg’s behaviour like a teenage-boy who want to revenge being beaten up. He said-
