Lashley and MVP opened the show and conveyed a disdain for Goldberg. Goldberg walked out to confront both and said that Lashley was afraid of him, but that he “was next” at Summerslam because he was simply … Goldberg.
Summerslam airs live on Peacock on Saturday August 20. Other announced matches on the show include Rhea Ripley vs. Charlotte Flair vs. Nikki A.S.H for the WWE Raw Women’s Championship and Roman Reigns vs. John Cena for the WWE Universal Championship.
