The appointment with SummerSlam, the most important show of the whole summer, is now very close, which this year will take place in Las Vegas in front of a delirious audience. WWE has returned to hosting fans in arenas only a few weeks ago, with the hope that the return to normal will not suffer further setbacks.
The recent increase in infections in the State of Nevada had raised fears for the holding of the 'Biggest Party of the Summer', but fortunately, no restrictions were imposed by the authorities for mass events. It would be useless to deny that much of the attention will be on Goldberg and John Cena, who will compete respectively with Bobby Lashley and Roman Reigns for belts (WWE and Universal).
In a recent interview with Sebastian Hackl for 'WWE Deutschland', Sasha Banks talked about various topical issues, focusing in particular on the big match between 'The All Mighty' and Goldberg. When she was asked to make a prediction about the winner, Banks gave a rather surprising answer.
Sasha Banks on Bobby Lashley
“I would love to team up with Bobby Lashley someday, he's a born winner” - Sasha Banks began. “How will the fight with Goldberg end? Bill's matches are always very short and quick, so I expect Bobby Lashley won't take too long to knock him out.
I do not rule out that Lashley wins the contest in five seconds” - said Banks. Within days of their meeting, the WWE champion made some interesting comments about his opponent. “Goldberg has gotten to the point where he's really pissing me off.
I'll never let him break the seniority record or anything like that. Maybe he doesn't quite understand who he will be dealing with at SummerSlam, but I'm here to explain it to him. He has to be prepared if he wants to look good against a superstar like me, but I don't think he's ready for that at all.
He risks getting hurt,” Lashley warned. If successful, Bill would become the oldest wrestler to ever hold the WWE Championship. At first, some of you might be wondering why this could be considered a controversial ending.
But at the moment, the reaction might not be great. Since it has been 17 months where we had no crowds in WWE, it's easy to forget how fans can turn on a superstar sometimes. Goldberg is undoubtedly more popular with the casual fans than many give him credit for, but that doesn't mean he can't get booed at SummerSlam 2021. However, just like Super ShowDown 2020, a clean victory for him could be controversial.
