WWE Championship
Bobby Lashley vs. Goldberg

Goldberg’s body looked closer to what he looked like when he was in WCW or at least how he looked when he went to WWE in 2003 but it looked like he was grimacing a bit when he entered the ring so he may have been hurting before this match.

Lashley then picked up and rammed Goldberg into the ring post two consecutive times.

Back in the ring, Goldberg struggled to stand up and so the referee called off the match.

Lashley attacked Goldberg’s leg with a steel chair so it looks like they will do this match again, perhaps in October at Crown Jewel. Gage Goldberg ran in to help his dad by Lashley put him in the full nelson. MVP grabbed the mic and said Lashley had no way of knowing that it was Gage Goldberg who jumped on him.
