WWE RAW Results (8/23) - San Diego, CA

Tonight’s show begins with some general highlights from last Saturday’s WWE SummerSlam.

We are live from the Pechanga Arena in San Diego, CA, as Bobby Lashley and MVP make their way to the ring. We get more highlights from Saturday.

Porter says he wants to address what happened on Sunday [sic] at SummerSlam.  When Goldberg showed up a few weeks ago on Raw, they were shocked that he would show up and challenge Bobby Lashley for his title.  We all know about Goldberg’s extraordinary history in this industry but we also know his not so extraordinary recent history.  Goldberg is a hall of famer and a powerhouse so he is a worthy challenger.  We did not know he would show up with his son Gage.  Porter says he does not know if Goldberg needed a confidence boost or a distraction.  Goldberg showed up at SummerSlam and he looked amazing.  There were a few moments when Lashley was backed up.  Porter says that Goldberg got a few two counts.  Goldberg only succeeded in getting Lashley angry.  The angrier that Lashley gets, the stronger he gets.  

Lashley beat the holy hell out of Goldberg.  Goldberg’s career, only a few men have beaten him but only Bobby Lashley has stopped him.  Goldberg did not have a leg to stand on.  Goldberg quit and that makes him a coward.  The end result was that Lashley was declared as ‘still’ the WWE Champion.  Someone jumps the barricade and attacks Lashley from behind like a coward.  Lashley did what he would do to anyone who would jump into the ring.  He would do it to anyone.  That won’t happen tonight and we are in San Diego and you are a bunch of cowards.  

If anyone thinks that Bobby Lashley owes Bill Goldberg or his son an apology… Lashley tells them they can go to hell.

New United States Champion Damian Priest shows up. 

Priest asks if they are calling Goldberg a coward because he got injured and couldn’t finish the match.  You are calling the crowd a bunch of cowards because they won’t jump you from behind?  Does that man you a big man.  Priest says he ain’t jumping Lashley from behind and he isn’t half his size.  Priest says he is challenging Lashley to a match tonight. Priest says if Lashley doesn’t accept the challenge, he is the coward.

Lashley rocks Priest with a right hand and unloads. Lashley takes his suit jacket off but Priest levels him. Priest keeps fighting and sends a seething Lashley to the floor to regroup. MVP says if Priest wants it, he’s going to get it but first Lashley has to go get his gear on, then come back and take care of Priest. Lashley storms off to the back as Priest watches from the ring. We go to commercial.
