After their match at SummerSlam, Lashley attacked Goldberg with a steel chair that eventually led to Goldberg’s son, Gage, hitting the ring to make the save for his father only to be choked out by “The Almighty.”
It was previously reported that WWE will hold the finals of the King of the Ring and Queen of the Ring tournament at this PPV event in October.
Goldberg has one more match left on his current WWE deal that expires next year. WWE posted this video on Monday where Goldberg sent a message to Lashley:
"I'm not coming for the WWE Championship. I'm coming for Bobby Lashley's SOUL and I will rip it straight from his chest."@Goldberg has a clear message for The All Mighty #WWEChampion @fightbobby following what happened to his son Gage at #SummerSlam. pic.twitter.com/cszXEDeFTj
