Bobby Lashley reached the pinnacle of the pro wrestling industry this week after defeating The Miz via submission and capturing the WWE Championship.
Bobby has competed in wrestling promotions such as WWE/IMPACT/AAA and has also competed in MMA sports with Bellator.
Lashley is the real deal and one quick look at his resume and accomplishments will tell how long he has been on his grind to reach this point in his career
1x WWE Champion (Current)
2x ECW World Champion
2x WWE Intercontinental Champion
2x WWE United States Champion
3x National Amateur Wrestling Champion
2x Armed Forces Champion
2002 Silver Medalist at the Military World Championship
Bobby Lashley made his WWE televised debut on the September 23rd SmackDown episode in 2005 and has waited his whole life for this moment to sit on top of the WWE mountain.
Shane McMahon is a huge supporter and fan of Lashley and had been pitching a WWE Championship run for Lashley to his father Vince McMahon for some time now. Anyone who thinks Shane doesn’t have any juice backstage and with storylines has no idea what they are talking about.
As we previously reported Bobby Lashley will be walking into WrestleMania 37 as WWE Champion (read below) and WWE officials are discussing match ups for the new champion. Opponents being discussed are as follows
• Drew McIntyre – Lashley vs McIntyre is currently a priority for WWE as Vince McMahon did not like the way WrestleMania 37 was being built and decided to go with a different direction with Lashley as WWE Champion. McMahon views Bobby Lashley vs Drew McIntyre as a true heavyweight mega match and one that would be fitting for WrestleMania 37.
• Brock Lesnar – WWE has been actively keeping Lesnar close to the company and working on new deals for the “Beast Incarnate”. Even though Lesnar has not been seen on WWE Television the two sides have been in constant communication with Paul Heyman acting as a conduit to keep the relationship flowing. Brock Lesnar vs Bobby Lashley is another heavyweight match high up on Vince McMahon’s list and if stars align we could witness this heavyweight battle in the near future.
• Brock Lesnar & Drew McIntyre – a mega heavyweight triple threat match for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 37 has also been discussed Bobby vs Lesnar vs McIntyre would be a true war between these juggernauts.
