Bobby Lashley vs. WWE Hall of Famer Bill Goldberg in a No Holds Barred match is now official for WWE Crown Jewel.
Here is a recap from our coverage:
Goldberg makes his way to the ring. Bill says Bobby Lashley has the audacity to claim that what he did to his son was a misunderstanding. It wasn’t. It was intentional. Tonight, I am inviting Bobby Lashley into this ring so I can intentionally break his frigging neck.
Bobby Lashley comes out and he says that what happened at SummerSlam was a misunderstanding. You must be out of your mind to think that I am coming to the ring to risk this custom suit to whip your ass again. Because we aren’t dressing like it’s 1998. I know you are angry but you need to stop perpetrating that myth that I attacked your son and you owe me an apology. I am going to give you a match at Crown Jewel, under one condition. That it is No Holds Barred.
Lashley tells Bill he can bring his son along. Bill says No Holds Barred gives him a License to Kill. You think I am crazy and I am. You want an apology? I’ll give you one. I’ll apologize to your kids after I leave your lifeless body in the ring gasping for air. There is one thing for sure Bobby Lashley, you’re next… and you’re dead.
Goldberg’s music starts to play but Bobby interrupts. He tells Goldberg you cannot kill the All Mighty. The fruit doesn’t fall far from the tree. If Gage has the balls enough to do what he did again, it won’t be a misunderstanding. What would you do if someone came into the ring and jumped you on your back.
Cedric Alexander climbs on Goldberg’s back and he snap mares Alexander and then he gives Benjamin a huge spear.
This will be a rematch from SummerSlam back in late August, which saw then-WWE Champion Lashley retain his title over Goldberg. The storyline behind this rematch is that Goldberg wants payback for what Lashley and MVP did to his son Gage at SummerSlam.
