In just a few hours, the long-awaited Crown Jewel show will be held in Saudi Arabia, a great event that the company will hold abroad after a long time. Among the most anticipated matches, there is undoubtedly the match between the All Mighty Bobby Lashley and the WWE legend and long-awaited in Arabian land Bill Goldberg.
After the clash between the two at SummerSlam with the former WWE Champion who also asphalt 'the son of Goldberg Gage, the wrestler attacked and reacted verbally and now wants to take his revenge at Crown Jewel. In a recent interview, Goldberg claimed that he not only wants to beat his rival but wants to avenge his son and really hurt Bobby Lashley.
Bobby Lashley talks about Crown Jewel
WWE will travel to Saudi Arabia for the first time in over a year, with Crown Jewel set to transpire on Thursday. The card has been set, but a few changes could yet take place from now until showtime in Riyadh.
Bobby Lashley spoke to Busted Open Radio where he discussed the match against Goldberg, a No Holds Barred Match. Here are his words: "I think I have the advantage for this type of match. Goldberg is Goldberg and he will always be a great wrestler, he is always someone who comes out to destroy people but I think this match will be the changing of the guard.
In the end, maybe I'll be tired of something but I'll be ready to destroy it and do great things." Then Lashley continued: "Through the match with Goldberg I can give a further level increase to my studio status, he wants to win but this is my historical period and I'm ready to beat him and take him out for good." This match is one of the most anticipated challenges at Crown Jewel but not only as there will be fights like the one in the cage between Seth Rollins and Edge and others like the WWE Championship match between the champion Big E and the challenger, The Scottish Psychopath Drew McIntyre.
The Main Event is arguably the most anticipated WWE Universal Championship match up for grabs between Brock Lesnar and WWE Champion and Tribal Chief Roman Reigns. WWE has a notorious history of making bizarre booking decisions in Saudi Arabia.
One of them saw Shane McMahon becoming the 'Best in the World' at Crown Jewel 2018 despite not being a part of the initial tournament. With another two tournaments happening this year, what if WWE pulls this move off again? Happy Corbin might attack Finn Balor before the King of the Ring Final in an attempt to reclaim his crown. It would give him immense heel heat, especially if he defeats Xavier Woods at the event.
