Bobby Lashley is experiencing something of a second youth in WWE. During his career, the 46-year-old from Junction City has won the WWE Championship twice, the ECW World Championship twice, the Intercontinental title twice, and the United States Championship three times, as well as garnering countless awards on the independent circuit.
Between 2008 and 2016 he also fought in mixed martial arts, winning the Shark Fights heavyweight title in 2011. 'The All Mighty' is currently at the peak of its popularity, having snatched the US title from the hands of Theory.
Despite being 46, his physical shape is still excellent and Bobby has no intention of stopping there. In a recent interview with 'The Tennessean', Lashley said he literally shifted gears during the pandemic. WWE experienced a tough 16 months between 2020 and 2021, not being able to host fans in the arenas and introducing the 'ThunderDome'
Bobby Lashley's career's grown tremendously
“I - along with Sheamus and Drew McIntyre - stepped forward during that time and proved to be performers you could rely on. We have developed our characters and have never shied away from difficulties.
Now we are helping the younger superstars in their growth path, we want them to become the stars of the future” - said Bobby Lashley. The thought of retirement does not scare Lashley: “I think I will have no problem figuring out when the time will be right to say enough, but that day is not that close yet.
I feel good enough that I can hope to continue performing until I'm 50. If my body continues to support me in this way, there is no reason why I should stop soon. If I no longer be able to keep up with certain rhythms or my appearance is affected by the weight of age, I will take note and step aside.
I am 100% at this stage and believe I can compete with any member of the WWE roster”. Former WWE Champion Bobby Lashley spoke about black representation. “We were able to give our audience a different look at Black talent.
Because before it was always like you had to be militant or you had to be dancing or you had to be this or that, and I was, like, ‘Nah man... We can show kids, such as my son, and kids that are growing up, that these are three Black athletes that are very talented, that can do anything else, but at the same time they’re not a thug, they’re not tap-dancing, they’re not doing any of this.' ”
