Bobby Lashley's return to WWE amazed both fans and insiders, who thought they would fight Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship. The dream match has not yet taken place, also because of the long absences of "The Beast" ready to return to the UFC. In a recent interview with SportsBible.com, Lashley expressed his opinion on this topic.
“Absolutely. I can post anything on social media and the people will reply we wanna see you and Brock, it’s something that has been building for the last 10 years so eventually it’s gonna happen because the fans want it to happen that bad," Bobby revealed.
On his decision to leave WWE in 2008: “I never wanted to leave. At the time I needed to step away for a bit, but in that time I fought in Bellator and Strikeforce, in other promotions, I wanted to build myself up and make my character stronger for when I came back.”
On his turn heel: “However, I couldn’t come out as a heel when I first started because the crowd waited for me to come back and wanted me back. Now is the perfect time though, I mean we have so many top babyfaces right now guys who are established so instead of forcing them into a different role, me being there is a little bit better.”
