WWE RAW Results (8/2) – Chicago IL – We are live from the sold out Allstate Arena in Chicago, IL, as Bobby Lashley makes his way to the ring accompanied by MVP.
Porter wants to know where everyone has been. He says everybody is excited to see Goldberg but before he comes out here, Bobby wants him to address a few things.
Goldberg shows up, uninvited to challenge Bobby for his WWE Championship. Bobby has not dignified that challenge with a response. Without question, Goldberg is an icon. He is still capable of anihilating any man on any night. That is the problem. Goldberg did not challenge ‘any man’, he challenged the All Mighty. Goldberg is a gladiator and he is used to going into the coliseum and crushing that gladiator. Bobby is an unstoppable monster.
Porter says he is trying to stop a tragedy from happening. The crowd chants for Goldberg. Porter says if Lashley accepts Goldberg’s challenge it won’t end well. It could be the last match of his career. Porter asks Bill if he wants to be remembered as a champion or a casualty?
Goldberg’s music plays and he makes his way to the ring.
Goldberg tells Lashley he wants to get something straight. If anybody should be worried about losing something, it is YOU losing the WWE Championship. After listening to your intro, you are nothing but scared. You look scared, as he looks at Lashley. Goldberg says Lashley is a high level athlete and a gladiator, but high level athlete, you question yourself. A gladiator who shows weakness. The first time you saw me come down to the ring, you thought I was the victim walking into your coliseum. This is not your coliseum, this is Chicago. They can smell fear a mile away. You either crapped your pants or you are scared out of your mind. It doesn’t matter if I am 35, 45, or 105, Goldberg will always be Goldberg. Goldberg lives by the spear and you, champ, will die by the spear. That is why you are next.
Goldberg walks to the back and Porter points out Goldberg’s son to Lashley. Lashley walks up to Goldberg’s son. Porter tells him that Lashley is going to end his father’s career. It will be his last match. Goldberg walks out and he spears Porter while Lashley poses on the turnbuckles.

In the Arena:
Charlotte says a few days ago, she woke up to a headline about Simone Biles withdrawing from the Olympics. Why wouldn’t the greatest gymnast go for gold and she found out it was for mental health. Two weeks ago, at Money in the Bank, I beat Rhea Ripley for the title. The next night, Nikki cashed in her briefcase and she stole Charlotte’s Raw women’s championship. Charlotte says she has been in this business a very long time. The next morning, I wondered what the hell happened. I was at my breaking point. Charlotte says she is the most decorated woman in this business. I believe that all of you think cashing in is the most cowardly way to win a title in this business.
It isn’t competition, it is theft. I have been cashed in, not once, not twice, I have been cashed in on three times. It seems like cashing in on Charlotte Flair is the only way to make your name. I asked for a one on one match against Nikki to show my superiority to all of you who believe in Nikki. I beat her and then Nikki had the audacity to ask for a rematch. Your champion shook my hand and I punched her in the face. She is not confident, she is gullible. You don’t want a hero, you want a martyr. Nikki will sacrifice herself tonight in a No Holds Barred Match. Anything goes tonight.
Nikki A.S.H. hits Charlotte in the back with a chair and Charlotte goes to the floor.
