Former Universal Champion Goldberg wants to face 16-time world champion John Cena in WWE.

Goldberg made his return to WWE programming last month and challenged WWE Champion, Bobby Lashley. The two are now set to have a blockbuster title clash this Saturday at WWE SummerSlam 2021.

Ahead of his WWE Championship match, Goldberg appeared on WWE's The Bump. On being asked about who he's supporting in the Universal Championship match at SummerSlam between John Cena and Roman Reigns, the WWE Hall of Famer claimed he's supporting neither of them. Goldberg went on to call both Roman Reigns and John Cena his "future victims".

I'm team neither one of them. Neither one has stared across the ring and seen me as an opponent. So, I look at both of them the same. They're just victims, they're just future victims to me. I'm a great fan of both of them for what they've done individually," said Goldberg.

Goldberg spoke about how he wants to face Roman Reigns and added that he would also love to get his hands around John Cena's throat.

"I think maybe even more so I would love to get my hands around Cena's throat," said Goldberg.

John Cena vs. Goldberg is a dream match that WWE could realistically book. However, the time window for that match is closing quickly as both the stars are part-timers and in the twilight zone of their WWE careers.
