Bill Goldberg returned to WWE for the umpteenth time in the episode of Raw following Money in the Bank. Bill has challenged Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship by starting a feud that will culminate in SummerSlam, the most anticipated pay-per-view of the summer, staged in Las Vegas on August 21.
In the episode of the red show airing this week, The All Mighty recorded a promo in which he was confident of demolishing Goldberg in just over a week. Fans have often criticized the WWE leadership for the countless titled chances granted to Bill, who had already appeared this year at the Royal Rumble.
In the aforementioned circumstance, he had surrendered quite sharply to Drew McIntyre by exiting the scene with his tail between his legs. In a recent interview with Gaelyn Mendonca for WWE India, Goldberg was asked who was the toughest opponent he has ever met in the ring.
"Brock Lesnar, I have no doubt," Goldberg replied without hesitation. "I would like to say that Brock's character is extremely similar to mine. What we interpret in front of the cameras is something very close to who we really are.
Confronting Brock Lesnar is a bit like challenging myself. The same can also be true for Bobby Lashley, with the difference that he is much younger," he continued. A few days ago, the statements of René Duprée, who accused Goldberg of being a dangerous wrestler, caused a huge sensation.
"He dislocated my shoulder once. We had to do a fairly simple segment, but he hit me with a French flag and the consequences were terrible. I still remember feeling tremendous pain. There are many other superstars who can confirm this.
For me, WWE must be desperate if they still bet on Goldberg. They don't know how to create new stars or they don't trust the athletes who play on the roster, I can't think of other plausible explanations," he had ruled.
Will Brock Lesnar fight in AEW?
In recent days, AEW, also named All Elite Wrestling, has been in the news for the latest rumors that have approached two former WWE stars such as CM Punk and even Daniel Bryan to the company of Tony Khan.
In the last few hours the rumors have increased and have also seen a rumor that would be incredible: the second most important wrestling company in the world would also be thinking of The Beast Incarnate, one of the most important stars of the WWE of the last twenty years, none other than Brock Lesnar.
Some rumors even say that the wrestler has already signed a contract. It all started when someone sent a message to colleagues from Wrestling Observer Newsletter stating that a historical and very important source in wrestling would tell them that Brock Lesnar had signed a deal with a company outside WWE.
Rumors have increased and it has been argued that this company was indeed the AEW. During the last episode of the Mat Men podcast, colleague Andrew Zarian took stock of the actual situation of The Beast. Here are his words: "I can tell you with absolute certainty that Brock Lesnar did not sign with AEW.
They may have spoken occasionally, but never anything serious. That's all I know and I can tell you what they told me. I also spoke to Dave Meltzer and he also confirmed that it is not true, Brock Lesnar has not signed with All Elite Wrestling."
Brock Lesnar has been absent from WWE rings and wrestling in general since last year when he was defeated at Wrestlemania 36. Latest rumors say that Vince McMahon's company is very interested in the wrestler's return and Zarian continued: "Brock hasn't signed with WWE yet.
I know WWE wants him and honestly if I'm WWE I think: How do you let go. one like him. I think it would be stupid and in fact the fact that WWE doesn't sink the blow for his return has made some wrestling fans think that WWE wants to sell.
Usually when someone wants to sell he has to save money as possible but I think you must also sell with the maximum of your earnings."
