WWE has announced that Bobby Lashley and Goldberg will meet for a face-to-face in the ring in the latest episode of Raw before SummerSlam. The most important pay-per-view of the summer will be staged in Las Vegas on August 21, despite the fact that the state of Nevada has had to deal with a sudden increase in infections in recent weeks.
'The All Mighty' recently appeared on the 'Broken Skull Sessions' podcast hosted by Stone Cold Steve Austin, where he was asked to list his five dream matches in WWE. The Stamford-based federation has returned to hosting fans in the arenas after about a year and a half of absence due to the outbreak of the pandemic.
Bobby Lashley will challenge Goldberg at SummerSlam
"I've never had the opportunity to work with The Undertaker, I think it would have been an incredible experience. The Deadman is the opponent that everyone would like to face at least once in their life" - confided Bobby Lashley.
"Then there is The Rock, which has always given me a lot of fun both in and out of the ring. I can't overlook Eddie Guerrero, who played the role of mentor to the younger ones when they entered the main roster. He was just great.
I loved seeing him work, I will never forget him. It is impossible for me not to mention Brock Lesnar. Since the day I joined this company, everyone has made the comparison between me and Brock and have pushed for us to fight against each other.
Lastly, I choose Stone Cold Steve Austin since he himself said that he could play one last match," he added. Despite their rivalry, Bobby has always had a deep respect for Goldberg. “As I have said several times already, I will destroy it mercilessly at SummerSlam.
At the same time, I have a lot of respect for what it was. I watched him with great admiration. Taking into account everything we have been through in the last year and a half, the anticipation for SummerSlam is truly skyrocketing.
I will have the opportunity to beat one of the stars I admired the most when I was a boy." During a recent interaction with Stone Cold Steve Austin on Broken Skull Sessions, Bobby Lashley revealed that The Phenom told him to move away from his amateur wrestling style by standing up more in the ring to make him seem bigger to the audience.
"As I started moving into it a little bit more and trying different kinds of characters, some of the things I did in amateur (wrestling) kind of made me smaller. And 'Taker told me once when we were doing house shows, I instantly wanted to get in that wrestling role. And 'Taker was like, 'Stand up."
