Unfortunately, that dream match turned into a disaster and Goldberg lost to the Phenom.
Prior to match in Saudi Arabia, Goldberg's last run was two years ago. After a gap of twelve years, Goldberg came back to WWE in 2016, and it was certainly a delightful moment for the fans as the WCW legend returned to the ring. He immediately showed his dominant persona by defeating Brock Lesnar in less than two minutes at Survivor Series that year. The former Atlanta Falcon defensive tackle went on to win the Universal Title at Fastlane, where he pinned Kevin Owens in just twenty one seconds. Subsequently, he dropped the Universal Title to Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 33.
SummerSlam, the biggest show of the summer, is now less than a month away. Since it's the second biggest pay-per-view after WrestleMania, we could see some notable names appear on the card. Considering Goldberg made his most recent WWE return at Super ShowDown, he could be part of this show, as well.
Here are three possible opponents for Goldberg, if he decides to wrestle at SummerSlam.
#3 Bobby Lashley
Bobby Lashley could be an excellent choice to fight Goldberg at SummerSlam. Lashley just had an impressive rivalry with Braun Strowman, as the two men tussled at Extreme Rules. Judging by the scenario this week, their feud probably ended at that show.
Similar to Goldberg, Lashley is known as a powerhouse. Due to his gigantic size, he is certainly one of the most powerful men in WWE. Goldberg had similar strength in his prime and two Superstars could deliver an entertaining match in the squared circle.
Since returning to WWE last year, Lashley is having a fairly ordinary run. A remarkable rivalry with Goldberg could rejuvenate the career of the two-time Intercontinental Champion.
