In Goldberg’s video, the 54-year-old veteran is practicing with a dummy on a Football field. He tackled the dummy to the ground and said he was “Far from good form but the violence is there…” You can learn more about the video here.

Now, Bobby Lashley has come up with his own video and he also went back to his past. ‘The Almighty One‘ was not happy when Goldberg returned on Monday this week, laughed on his face, and said he was next in line.

In his video, Lashley practiced straight punches with his trainer. The video is reminiscing of Lashley’s own MMA past. He captioned, “If intimidation is your game plan, I hope you have a better one. … Goldberg. This is a fight, not football. #youarenext @train2perfection time for some jumper cables! #shotsfired #theAllMightyera #summerslam2021”

Despite initially denying Goldberg’s demand for a match, it seems Lashley has accepted his challenge. See the video below –

What to expect from Bobby Lashley vs Goldberg at SummerSlam 2021?

We know that Goldberg can only have two matches per year. This contract runs till 2022. The Hall of Famer had his first match against Drew McIntyre at Royal Rumble earlier this year.

Hence, this would be Goldberg’s second and final match this year. So, we don’t expect him to win the WWE title as it will require him to appear in more matches to defend the title.

However, the match can be turned into a triple-threat or fatal-four-way to increase other’s chances. There are a lot of contenders in RAW. So we never know what’s next.

On the other hand, Bobby Lashley is on a dominant run on RAW. He decimated Kofi Kingston at WWE SummerSlam, and he would be happy to give Goldberg a similar fate.
