Bobby Lashley faced Theory in a match for the US title at SummerSlam, the biggest pay-per-view of the summer. The match didn't last even five minutes and ended with Lashley keeping his belt. 'The All Mighty' is experiencing a kind of second youth and has no intention of stopping there.
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. He has also held the Intercontinental title twice and the United States Championship three times, once the TNA X Division Championship and once the TNA King of the Mountain Championship.
Earlier this year, Bobby suffered a shoulder injury that nearly prevented him from competing at WrestleMania 38. A guest on the latest edition of 'The Masked Man Show', Lashley revealed that Vince McMahon wanted him to have surgery before the 'Showcase of the Immortals'

“I injured my shoulder a couple of months before WrestleMania 38, I couldn't even raise my arm. I tried to resist in silence, I didn't want to worry the people around me” - said Bobby Lashley.
“I took three weeks off to recover for WrestleMania. I called Vince McMahon and he advised me to have an operation. That kind of surgery would have forced me to stop for about four months. I told him I wasn't going to do it because after three weeks at home I was starting to go crazy.
Also, I didn't want to skip WrestleMania. I started training, preparing, recovering and returning in time for the most important event of the year. There is no downtime in this business. Every other sport has an off-season, while we don't enjoy this luxury” - added Lashley.
'The All Mighty' is still in great shape: "I just turned 46, but I feel better than ever. I'm a cyborg or something like that, I'm from another planet”. Wrestling veteran Bill Apter was full of praise for Bobby Lashley.
"I knew [Bobby] Lashley from way back in TNA and the Indies," said Apter. "Boy, he's matured into such, he looks like a wrestling champion. You see this guy in a suit and tie, and to me, he should be the Universal [Champion].
He looks like how a professional athlete and wrestler should look like." While Lashley currently works as a lone soldier, Montez Ford expressed his desire to join forces with The All Mighty.
