One of the marquee matches of WWE SummerSlam 2021 saw Bobby Lashley defend his WWE Championship against the returning WCW legend Goldberg.
There were a lot of questions surrounding the return of Goldberg, with the WWE Hall of Famer reportedly only having two matches per year on his WWE contract; with Goldberg having already wrestled at the Royal Rumble at the beginning of the year in a losing effort to Drew McIntyre, also for the WWE Championship.
The match concluded due to referee stoppage, as Goldberg was unable to continue due to a knee injury in storyline.
