• Real Reason Why Brock Lesnar vs. Bobby Lashley Isn’t Happening At SummerSlam 2021
As we noted earlier, WWE Hall Of Famer Goldberg will be returning on next week’s RAW to challenge Bobby Lashley to a match at SummerSlam 2021.
According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE isn’t bringing Brock Lesnar back for a match against Lashley because they want to do a Brock Lesnar – Roman Reigns program again, and don’t want Lesnar to look weak after suffering a loss to Lashley (which would be two big losses in a row for him, with his last loss being to Drew McIntyre):
“The Lesnar match was talked about a lot but constantly denied. The feeling was that Lesnar isn’t coming back for a number of shows right now, so he’d have to lose.
And those in the Reigns camp see Reigns vs. Lesnar with the Heyman history as a big program not to be weakened by Lesnar doing a job or doing a non-finish with Lashley right now.”
