Bobby Lashley vs. Goldberg has been made official for WWE Crown Jewel.

The match was made official on tonight’s Raw after Lashley issued the challenge to Goldberg, saying he’d accept another match as long as it was a no holds barred match. Goldberg accepted, telling Lashley that he was not only next, but also dead.

Goldberg and Lashley have been feuding since this summer, when Goldberg faced then-WWE Champion Lashley at SummerSlam. The finish had Goldberg unable to continue after suffering a knee injury, with the referee stopping the match. Goldberg’s son Gage came to the ring to help him. Lashley responded by laying out Gage with the hurt lock. Since then, Goldberg has called for revenge against Lashley.

Appearing on tonight’s Raw, Goldberg again said that Lashley would pay for what he did. Lashley invited Gage to Crown Jewel, insisting that what had happened at SummerSlam was a misunderstanding. But if Gage got involved again, what happens to him next would not be an accident.

Crown Jewel will take place on October 21 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
