Bobby Lashley has finally accepted Bill Goldberg’s SummerSlam challenge for Lashley’s WWE championship at the Aug. 21 pay-per-view event.
It was the biggest news out of Monday’s night’s edition of WWE Raw, reports cbssports at Allstate Arena in Chicago.
Lashley opened the show by again refusing to grant Goldberg his match, drawing the WWE and WCW legend to the ring to question Lashley’s manhood.
After Goldberg delivered a spear to MVP, Lashley finally gave in and vowed to end Goldberg when the two meet at the summer’s biggest event.
Bobby Lashley and MVP opened the show with an in-ring promo, explaining that they respected Goldberg as an icon in the wrestling business but that Lashley was more than the men Goldberg had faced in the past.
The refusal to answer Goldberg’s challenge was, MVP said, an attempt to avoid a casualty. This brought Goldberg to the ring, where he said Lashley should be afraid of losing his WWE championship — and that Lashley looked scared.
Goldberg again laid out the challenge to Lashley, vowing to take the title at SummerSlam.
After Goldberg left the ring, MVP got in the face of Goldberg’s son at ringside, saying Lashley would end his father’s career. This drew Goldberg back to lay out MVP with a spear.
Later in the show, Lashley said he hopes Goldberg will bring his son to SummerSlam so that he can watch Lashley annihilate him.
