WWE WrestleMania 39 was set to feature a high-profile match between Bobby Lashley and Bray Wyatt. However, due to Wyatt's unforeseen illness, WWE had to cancel the bout.

This open challenge has caught the attention of several wrestlers, including a former WWE superstar. Internet sensation and former WWE guest star KSI has shown interest in taking up Lashley's challenge. KSI appeared surprised during the Logan Paul vs.
Seth Rollins match on the first night of WrestleMania 39. He was revealed to be under the Prime bottle costume and was put through a table during the match.
