Fans are well aware that Goldberg’s contract states he would partake in only two matches per ear till 2022. His first match of the year was against then-WWE Champion Drew McIntyre at Royal Rumble which he lost.

Now, the upcoming SummerSlam match would be his second and final match for 2021. There is no news on whether the match would be one-on-one or triple-threat or any other because there are a lot of potential candidates on RAW.

However, despite the match being his final WWE match for this year, the 54-year-old veteran is not taking things lightly. In a recent Instagram video, Goldberg was seen practicing football.

In the video, Goldberg was tackling a practice model on the field. He wrote, “Putting in work reliving the good old football days…. Far from good form but the violence is there…”

For those who don’t know, before Goldberg made his name as a pro wrestler, he was an up-and-coming football player. He played defensive tackle for Georgia Bulldogs and The Los Angeles Rams.

In 1992 through the 1994 seasons, he played with The Rams, CFL Sacramento Gold Miners, and Atlanta Falcons. In 1995 he was selected by the Carolina Panthers but was cut off soon. His NFL Football career ended after he “tore his lower abdomen off his pelvis.”

Bobby Lashley is furious after Goldberg returned

Coming back to the WWE Championship scene in WWE, ‘The Almighty One‘ was furious after Goldberg returned. If it was not for MVP, Lashley would have lashed out at the Hall of Famer.

After WWE RAW was over, Lashley took it to Twitter and let out his anger. He was especially offended at Goldberg coming up to his face and laughing at him.

Although he seems to have rejected Goldberg’s challenge initially, The Almighty one has to face Goldberg next. We have to wait till next Monday to see what is next for the WWE Titles.
