If you wondered how long WWE would give the Goldberg vs. Bobby Lashley title match at SummerSlam tonight (Sat., Aug. 21, 2021) at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada, you have your answer.
Way longer than expected!
Goldberg returned weeks ago to simply demand a title shot, and it was granted for reasons we still aren’t entirely sure of. There wasn’t much in the way of a build. They just vowed to beat each other up, and Goldberg brought his kid around so he could watch him in person.
He watched his dad lose.
Lashley had MVP there to assist him — in hilarious fashion, considering Goldberg was late selling a shot to his leg — and that gave him the advantage he needed. He worked the knee over time and time again, and Goldberg couldn’t even stand on it so the referee decided to call it.
Lashley remains your WWE champion.
After, Lashley took a chair to Goldberg repeatedly, as the crowd cheered him on, strangely enough. Goldberg’s son, Gage, hit the ring to try to protect his father, and he ended up in the Hurt Lock. This mercifully ended there, when MVP got on the mic and claimed Bobby couldn’t know he was attacked from behind by Goldberg’s son.
“I’m going to kill you,” Goldberg shouted to Lashley as the champion walked to the back.
