Bobby Lashley is having his best moment since returning to WWE in 2018. 'The All Mighty' is set to defend his WWE Championship against Goldberg at SummerSlam, the summer's biggest pay-per-view, which will be staged in Las Vegas on August 21st.
The anticipation for this event has skyrocketed thanks also to the recent return of John Cena, who will meet Roman Reigns for the title of Universal champion. During a lengthy interview with 'Complex', Lashley revealed when he plans to lower the curtain on his illustrious career.
Obviously, this is only a guess, but Bobby has shown that he has very clear ideas in his head and that he wants to achieve his goals at any cost.
Bobby Lashley was released by WWE in 2008
"The wrestling activity gives you the opportunity to shoot a lot, and this is an experience you can't buy anywhere else.
We have the opportunity to travel the world and observe the different insanities that happen in various cities, not just in the United States. Things that happen every single day in airports, hotels and places where we do shows.
There are many kinds of stories that go into our luggage. We often talk about this topic with MVP, as we are both nearing the end of our careers. When I retire in five or ten years, I would like to go back to the ring every now and then like Goldberg does and give a good lesson to some young talent,” declared the WWE champion.
Bobby Lashley does not intend to underestimate Bill's pride: "I immediately perceived in his eyes a different intensity than my previous opponents. I have enormous respect for Goldberg, I grew up watching him fight, but I won't have mercy on him at SummerSlam for that.
I'll do everything I can to knock him out and show off my superiority. Bill is an icon, he's a Hall of Famer, whatever you want, but I won't give him any chance to beat me." Bobby Lashley was released by WWE in 2008, which ended his three-year run with the company.
He wrestled in Mexico's AAA promotion, as well as TNA, while also beginning his MMA career. Lashley returned to TNA/IMPACT Wrestling in 2014, and by the time he left the promotion in 2018, he had four TNA/IMPACT World titles to his name - the second-most in the promotion's history behind Kurt Angle. Bobby Lashley returned to WWE in 2018 and went on to win his first world title earlier this year.
