Bobby Lashley took the US title deservedly snatching it from Theory in the pay-per-view Money in the Bank. The latter then left everyone speechless by winning the Money in the Bank ladder match at the end of the evening. 'The All Mighty' will be called to defend his belt against Theory at SummerSlam, the biggest PPV of the summer.
There are all the conditions for witnessing a memorable battle. According to some experts, Austin was to take advantage of the match between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar to surprise the winner and become world champion. However, he will have to pay close attention to Lashley, who is experiencing a sort of second youth.
During his long career, the 46-year-old from Junction City has won the WWE Championship twice, the ECW World Championship twice, and the TNA World Heavyweight Championship four times. During an interview with Sportskeeda, Bobby revealed the secrets of his longevity.
Bobby Lashley is in great shape
“I just turned 46, but I feel fitter than ever. I am not a real person. I'm a cyborg or something, I'm from another planet,” Bobby Lashley joked. The US champion leaves nothing to chance: “Consistency is the key for me.
I'm the kind of athlete who gets up every day at 5 am to do his exercises. I eat well and take care of my body. I also spend a lot of time on recovery. I've always worked hard, I've never let myself go. I want to keep performing as long as possible.
I feel good enough that I can hope to keep fighting until I'm 50. If my body continues to support me in this way, there is no reason why I should stop anytime soon. If I no longer be able to handle certain rhythms or my appearance is affected by the weight of age, I will take note and step aside.
I'm at 100% right now and I believe I can compete with any member of the current roster”. In a recent interview with Lucha Libre Online, Lashley said that what he and The Beast Brock Lesnar achieved was only a "little teaser" for things to come.
The United States Champion believes he and Lesnar could have another major feud soon. “We didn’t got it all. We got a little teaser. I think there’s some unfinished business. Brock has been consistent like this for the last 20 years," said Bobby Lashley. Bobby won the United States Championship at MITB.
