Bobby Lashley Continues to Want WWE Match with Brock Lesnar

Posted By James Walsh on 09/14/20

Bobby Lashley recently did an interview with TV Insider to discuss a wide range of topics. Here are the highlights:

There is a lot of speculation about Brock Lesnar now that he is reportedly not under a WWE contract right now. Fans have been clamoring to see you step in the ring with him. Do you still see it happening down the line?

Its the craziest thing with Brock. When I got into wrestling, Brock got out. I got out, and he got back in. I got back in, and he got out. Nobody is ducking anyone. It just so happens to work out that way. Brock has big opportunities and a lot of people he can have big marquee matchups against. He can take on Jon Jones within the MMA world. There is a line there that you have to stand behind. As much as the fans want to see this match happen, I got to take into consideration Brock has to do his business the way he wants to. We neve had that opportunity to get in and have that match. Hopefully, the stars align for both of us. Maybe it will happen when we are 60. Ill tell you every day I post a picture of anything on social media, people will say they want me and Brock. We have to give it to him.

What youre doing on Raw is a natural fit for you, but I also look at it as a culmination of your evolution. Youve grown your in-ring game and onscreen personality. What do you make of this current run?

When I first came back I would get, Why is Bobby singing on TV?, or, Why is he with Lana? It was all so people could get to know me a little bit more. A lot of people hated my work with Lana, but a lot of people watched it. I think Lana and I had the same problem going into things. We knew this was going to be one of these controversial storylines, and a lot of people are going to talk about it. And when they talk about it our stock is going to go up on TV. When they say there is no such thing as bad press, there is a little bit to that.

Right now, everything that Ive done since coming back to WWE has led me to what Im doing right now. I think right now everything is bright for me. I feel good about every aspect of my game. I can be the guy. There are kids growing up now like I was and need someone to look up to. Im that guy. I can do it all.
