However, a clip might have provided some insight, as wrestling legend Goldberg might be his replacement opponent on this monumental night.

“Wcw theme Goldberg but why???”

“If Goldberg comes back ima be mad”

“2150: Goldberg returns to the ring!”

While there was no indication of the possible battle of heavyweights on the first Mania night. Fans would be expecting to see it on the second night. Fans would no doubt be ruing the missed opportunity to see ‘The Eater of Worlds’ go face to face with Lashley.

But they could find solace in the fact that they may be on the verge of watching Goldberg rekindle his feud with the former Hurt Business member.

The two have collided previously as well

The two tussled in a 2021 rivalry that saw matches at SummerSlam and Crown Jewel. The tussle was made personal by Lashley’s vicious attack on the legend’s son Gage.

And it has to be said that the former world champion arguably had his best battles in his second stint with WWE against Lashley. The latter even termed it as a passing of the torch moment for him.

If the huge encounter does take place, it will be a massive treat for the fans. And it will be interesting to see whether Bobby Lashley can thwart a stiff challenge in Goldberg. Fans would be hoping that the absence of Bray Wyatt does not prevent Lashley from having his Mania moment.
