Former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Bobby Lashley returned to the "WWE SmackDown" scene, ending his on-screen hiatus since his defeat at the hands of A.J. Styles in the tournament's semifinals to crown the inaugural champion.
In an intriguing backstage segment, the arena witnessed the arrival of a car, catching the attention of Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins, collectively known as The Street Profits. As the car's door swung open, out stepped none other than Bobby Lashley himself, extending an invitation for the Street Profits to join him inside.
Bobby Lashley's WrestleMania Disappointment
Lashley's appearances on WWE programming had been infrequent leading up to WrestleMania 39. Despite his victory in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal, which took place on a pre-WrestleMania episode of "SmackDown," Lashley notably did not compete at the grand spectacle—a fact that reportedly left him dissatisfied.
Before WrestleMania, Lashley was slated to engage in a compelling rivalry with Bray Wyatt following his intense match against Brock Lesnar at Elimination Chamber. However, their anticipated program was seemingly derailed when Wyatt was abruptly pulled from television and live events due to an undisclosed illness.
To this day, Wyatt's absence continues, with reports attributing it to the same undisclosed ailment. Lashley's surprise return to "SmackDown" has left fans speculating his motives for aligning himself with The Street Profits.
Could this union catalyze an unforeseen alliance or an impending conflict? The WWE Universe eagerly awaits the next chapter in this unfolding storyline. Bobby Lashley's resurgence adds intrigue to the WWE landscape as the road to redemption beckons.
With questions surrounding his unfinished business and newfound association with The Street Profits, wrestling enthusiasts are left eagerly anticipating what lies ahead for the former World Heavyweight Champion.
