During his long WWE career, Bobby Lashley held the WWE Championship once, the ECW World Championship twice, the Intercontinental title twice, and the United States Championship twice. On October 21, at Crown Jewel, members of the Hurt Business lost an untitled match against The Usos, while Lashley was defeated quite sharply by Bill Goldberg in one of the most spectacular matches of the evening.
The former WWE Champion will represent Team Raw at the Survivor Series in the traditional 5vs5 battle against Team SmackDown. WWE is trying hard to put a complicated period behind it, exacerbated by the vehement rise of All Elite Wrestling.
Tony Khan's company has taken the lead in the 18-to-49-year-old demographic, as well as hiring two authentic phenomena such as CM Punk and Bryan Danielson. In a recent interview with DAZN, 'The All Mighty' said it's a great time to be a wrestling fan.
The latest news on Bobby Lashley
“I think this is a good time to be a wrestling fan, as the industry is experiencing a flourishing period despite the aftermath of the pandemic. Everyone always says competition is good for business, but I don't think WWE has real competition.
The rivalry between WWE and AEW is more a media invention than a concrete fact. However, fans like to hear that kind of thing,” Bobby Lashley said. 2021 was a bumper year for Bobby as he managed to win the WWE Championship for the first time in his career.
“The past two months have been a flurry of emotions for me. Goldberg and I started an electrifying match in Saudi Arabia and before that at SummerSlam. The same goes for my storyline with Big E. Anyone who steps in the ring with me will benefit their career.
Many of the guys I've worked with in the last year have exploded shortly thereafter. Above all, Apollo Crews and Matt Riddle come to mind." On the latest Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T was asked which star he would've loved to manage.
The WWE legend joked about having a better "suit game" than MVP -- the current manager of Bobby Lashley -- as well as stating that he and Lashley had history. "If I had to manage one person, it would be Bobby (Lashley).
It would be Bobby. Not want to step on the toes of MVP or anything like that. Bobby - I think I have certain special qualities that I could bring to the game, especially the suit game - my suit game is much more on top than MVP but I ain't trying to throw no shade on MVP."
