At SummerSlam 2021, Bobby Lashley defeated Goldberg via referee stoppage to retain the WWE Championship.

Goldberg’s son Gage jumped on Lashley during this match and got taken out by The All Mighty.

During an interview on the Steve & Captain Evil podcast, Goldberg revealed that he saw his son smiling in the ring after the attack from Lashley, which led to him choking his son by pulling the T-Shirt to make him stop smiling.

Here’s what the WCW Legend said:

“I used to eat guys like Bobby Lashley when I was big. Now, I just let my son eat those people.

The funny thing is… Bobby came in, I had a feud with somebody else at the time, but we were backstage and he comes in, and he gets along great with Gage. He asked if I would throw Gage into the fray. I was like, ‘I don’t know, let me ask Gage’.

Long story short, San Antonio, Gage’s football team was in the front row, Bobby was messing with me, and he gets in Gage’s face. Fast forward to Vegas, we had a pay-per-view, I’m getting beat up by Bobby Lashley and Gage jumps out of the stands, jumps in the middle of the ring, this was planned, and jumps on Bobby’s back, and Bobby proceeds to choke him out. He has to act like he’s choked out.

I’m over in the corner, hurt, but I’m watching my son to make sure he’s doing everything correctly. He’s smiling!

I started laughing, being proud of my son, I’m choking Gage, I’m behind him, I’m consoling him, but I’m literally choking him with his own shirt so he stops laughing.

I was very proud of him. You have to take the fakeness serious.”
