Bobby Lashley is an eight-time world champion, having won the WWE Championship twice, the ECW World Championship twice, and the TNA World Heavyweight Championship four times. He also held the Intercontinental title twice, the United States Championship three times, the TNA X Division Championship once, and the TNA King of the Mountain Championship once.
'The All Mighty' is experiencing a kind of second youth and plans to keep fighting for a long time to come. During a recent interview with ESPN, he was asked to give his opinion on the sensational retirement of Vince McMahon.
Last month, Vince announced his goodbye giving way to his daughter Stephanie and Nick Khan. At the same time, Triple H was put in charge of the creative team.
Bobby Lashley speaks about Vince McMahon
"Vince McMahon has announced his retirement, but I doubt he will disappear completely" - Bobby Lashley began with great sincerity.
“He Won't let him be his creature so easily, he loves this business too much. He'll still be around, I'm sure. He is just giving other people the opportunity to gain experience" - he added. Lashley is very grateful to Vince: “He is why I'm here today.
I have the utmost respect for Vince and I wish him the best. I hope to keep in touch with him even after his retirement”. Earlier this year, Bobby suffered a shoulder injury that nearly prevented him from competing at Wrestlemania 38.
“I injured my shoulder a couple of months before WrestleMania 38, I couldn't even raise my arm. I tried to hold on in silence, I didn't want to make the people around me worry. I took three weeks off to recover... 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. I started training, preparing, recovering and returned in time for WrestleMania”.
Brian James and Vince Russo have given their take on whether Bobby Lashley would have drawn money during WWE’s Attitude Era. “That’s hard because I know Bobby [Lashley] a little because I worked with him in TNA,” Russo said.
“The Attitude Era took a special personality. When I worked with Bobby, Bobby was a great guy and I loved working with him and everything, but very reserved, very quiet, very I want to say limited a little, very humble”.
