His marguee match against Goldberg is arguably the biggest match of his career and Lashley himself thinks so. Speaking to TV Insider, he revealed that a match of this caliber is what his career needed. He also confessed that he respected Goldberg but was going to be kick his ass for as long as he wanted.
Bobby Lashley shares his thoughts on SummerSlam match with Goldberg
“You feel the excitement when Goldberg walks to the ring. I was there. After I beat Keith Lee on Raw, Goldberg’s music came on and the whole place erupted. There is no question about his star power. It was something that was needed in my career to have this kind of match. When Goldberg comes, he looks toward those big matches.
“I have a lot of respect for Goldberg for what he has done in his career. It really doesn’t matter if Goldberg is in shape or ready or can do a longer match. That is irrelevant. It was like the last pay-per-view I was in. It didn’t matter if Kofi was in shape or ready to have a long match, It was just me beating him up for however long I wanted to beat him up. It’s the same thing here. He can take a break and relax because the outcome will be the same. Me kicking his ass for as long I want to kick his ass. If it’s 10, 15, 20, 30 minutes, I can throw him around for as long as I need to do it.”
Lashley also spoke about his dream match with Brock Lesnar. He revealed that he had no idea what was going on but expressed optimism over it happening one day.
“I don’t know what is going on with Brock, but we have several different pay-per-views throughout the year. SummerSlam is not the biggest one. It is one of the biggest ones. There are still options to maybe see some of these big matches everyone wants.”
SummerSlam 2021 will take place on August 21, 2021, at Allegiant Stadium in the Las Vegas suburb of Paradise, Nevada. It will be the 34th event under the SummerSlam chronology.
