The 54-year-old Goldberg returned to WWE programming on Monday Night Raw, appearing for the first time since this January’s Royal Rumble. After Lashley defeated Keith Lee on Raw, Goldberg came out to the ring and had a stare down with Lashley. Goldberg laughed at Lashley and declared that “I’m next.”

The confrontation appears to set the stage for a WWE championship match between Lashley and Goldberg at next month’s SummerSlam pay-per-view. SummerSlam is taking place at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Saturday, Aug. 21. After more than 12 years away from the ring, Goldberg returned to WWE in 2016. He became one of professional wrestling’s biggest stars after debuting for WCW in the late 1990s and was previously with WWE from 2003-2004.
