Bobby Lashley on Finally Getting In the Ring With Brock Lesnar
“The first thing I said was, I said, ‘get me out of the match,'” he admitted.
“I said, ‘it’s a fatal 4-way, I and MVP can do something beforehand, get me out of the match’. Initially, people were like, ‘what? Are you scared of him?’ No, I’m not scared of him, it’s a match where exactly what happened, happened.
“He beats somebody else and got the title,” Lashley said. “So essentially he can say he beat me, Seth, Big E & Kevin right? I mean, the match is five people and I was like, ‘that’s not the way this is going down, get me out of the match’.
And they were like, ‘Nah, Nah, you got to stay in the match,’ and I was like, ‘alright’”. Bobby Lashley stated that a lot of people did not like Brock Lesnar being added to the match. However, he made the most of this by actually dominating Brock every time they got in the ring together.
He even speared Brock Lesnar through the barricade once during an encounter. “There was kind of a lot of people that were like, not happy about it,” he said. “But I looked it as, ‘At first, get me out of the match, but if I’m staying in the match, then interactions we have with Brock, I have to make a statement”.
Many wrestling fans actually wanted to see Brock Lesnar take on Bobby Lashley inside the WWE for a really long time. It never happened and Bobby’s best achievement during his previous run in the WWE was a reign as the ECW Champion.
The reason why people wanted to see Brock take on Bobby was because Brock and Bobby are former Amateur wrestlers. They are extremely technical so people believe that it will be a very exciting match.
