That sounds serious. There are always going to be injuries in wrestling and some of them come out of nowhere. At the same time, there are some injuries which are going to be built up over time. Neither of these are exactly optimal and unfortunately you don’t know when one of them is coming. That was the case again, and now we know just how bad a WWE legend is hurt.

Earlier this month at Summerslam, Goldberg unsuccessfully challenged Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship. Goldberg lost the match via referee stoppage when he suffered a knee injury. In a new video on WWE’s YouTube channel, Goldberg said that he had suffered ligament damage and would require surgery, but he was still coming for Lashley. The rematch has been rumored for Crown Jewel in October.

Goldberg is quite the force when he is healthy. Check out the video, and what he is capable of doing:

Opinion: I’m not sure how legitimate the injury is, but it is the kind of thing that could be used to keep Goldberg out of action until the rematch in about two months. That being said, I don’t know if there is all that much interest in having these two face off again. The first match wasn’t all that great in the first place and the threat of Goldberg actually winning the title again is right there again.
