Goldberg made an unexpected return to WWE on the latest edition of RAW and confronted Bobby Lashley following his victory over Keith Lee. The WWE Hall of Famer seemingly challenged Lashley for the WWE Championship by saying that he’s next. The match is rumored to take place at SummerSlam next month.
Storyline-wise though, it hasn’t been made official yet and Bobby Lashley doesn’t want to put his title on the line against Goldberg. He made it known on Twitter by sending a crude message to Goldberg, telling him that he doesn’t belong in the same world as The Almighty and he even referred to the legend as an ‘old man.’
Despite backlash from fans, Golberg, who is a part-time wrestler, will have another opportunity at the WWE Championship this year although he didn’t earn it. According to reports, WWE isn’t focused on the negative reactions from fans as the company feels that Goldberg is great for the demographic and he boosts viewership.
Since SummerSlam is the company’s second-biggest pay-per-view of the year, they need major names to sell the event, and Goldberg fits that category properly. WWE also brought in John Cena to face Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship at the event.
