Goldberg Claims Bobby Lashley Is Not Representing WWE Correctly


The challenger for the WWE Championship at SummerSlam Goldberg has had some critical words for a fellow WWE Superstar that he says isn’t representing the company in the right manner.

Goldberg made his return to WWE on the 19th of July episode of Raw when he confronted WWE Champion Bobby Lashley, telling him that he was next. This was Goldberg’s first appearance in WWE since the 2021 Royal Rumble where he unsuccessfully challenged Drew McIntyre for the same title.

The former WCW Champion was quickly confirmed as Lashley’s challenger for The Biggest Party Of The Summer to take place in Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada as Goldberg attempts to win the one major title in wrestling that has alluded him thus far.

Speaking to WWE India Goldberg had some choice words for Lashley and says The All Mighty one leaves a lot to be desired in terms of representing WWE and the title:

“I don’t come back and choose the people I’m going to go after. If I could have come back and chosen one person to go after, it would have been Bobby Lashley. There is a way you should represent the championship title and I don’t believe he’s been doing it properly. He’s very callous. In this match, my name should not be Goldberg, it should be karma. He deserves a lot of things coming to him and I will hopefully be the guy who delivers that.”

“Bobby Lashley poses a very big threat. There are few people who can match up to him physically and mentally. I still think I’m one of them. At 53 years old, as I told him, it doesn’t matter if I’m 25, 35, 55, or 105, I’m bringing some pain with me. The people he’s run over in the past are nothing like me. I’m gonna bring something to the fight that I don’t think he’s ever seen.”

Goldberg is advertised to appear on the last Raw before SummerSlam on the 16th of August as the red brand emanates from San Antonio, Texas.
