Goldberg challenging Bobby Lashley for the WWE Title official for SummerSlam

Goldberg challenging Lashley for the WWE Title official for SummerSlam

During last night’s WWE Raw, Goldberg returned to confront Lashley in the ring.  However, it wasn’t until later in the show, Lashley accepted Goldberg challenge.

Below is an excerpt from Roy Nemer’s Raw recap on how everything went down:

WWE Raw kicks off with Bobby Lashley and MVP walking down to the ring. MVP cuts a promo about how Goldberg had come out and issued a challenge against Lashley. But he was out here right now to prevent a tragedy and he asks Goldberg if he would change his mind.

Out comes Goldberg to the ring with his son in attendance. Goldberg says that MVP and Lashley are scared and that the fans in Chicago know it. Goldberg says he’ll win the WWE title at SummerSlam and walks to the back. MVP leaves the ring and goes towards Goldberg’s son. He gets in his face. Goldberg comes back out, he spears MVP and leaves.

WWE SummerSlam takes place on Saturday, August 21 from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada.  It will stream live on Peacock in the United States, and WWE Network everywhere else, beginning at 8:00 pm ET.
