Lashley named some Hall of Famers and future Hall of Famers. He started the list off with The Undertaker, who retired last year at Survivor Series.

“Of course, you cannot take out The Undertaker. Never had an opportunity to work The Undertaker and I think he’s incredible. Everybody knows The Undertaker is an icon match.”

The Rock. Just pure entertainment. I think that would be an awesome opportunity. Eddie Guerrero. When I first started, Eddie Guerrero was mentoring some of us coming up. Just amazing. I just loved to watch him work.”

The Rock has not officially retired from the business. Eddie is a legend in the ring and became a member of the WWE Hall of Fame after he passed away in 2005.

Then Lashley named a fan favorite. He said, “Brock [Lesnar]. Everybody, since the day that I stepped into wrestling, people have been comparing us and wanting us to wrestle. So I think that’s something for the fans.”

He ended the list with the host himself as “he said he had one more match left in him.” The interview with Lashley goes live after SummerSlam on Sunday.

Lashley has had a dominant run as the WWE Champion on RAW. However, following Money in the Bank, Hall of Famer Goldberg showed up to challenge him.

Lashley accepted the challenge after a while and the match was on the cards. Goldberg would probably not win as this is his second and last match for the year according to his two-match-per-year contract.
