During his long WWE career, Bobby Lashley held the ECW World Championship, the Intercontinental Championship and once the United States Championship, while at TNA he won four times the World Heavyweight Championship, once the X Division Championship and once the King of the Mountain Championship.
Between 2008 and 2016 he also fought in mixed martial arts, winning the heavyweight title of Shark Fights in 2011. After returning to WWE in 2018, Lashley would become a two-time Intercontinental Champion. Between WWE and TNA/Impact, Lashley has won a total of eleven championships, six of those eleven being world championships, and has also headlined multiple pay-per-view events.
In an interview with talkSport, he reflected on having The Undertaker backstage in WWE: “Man, it was incredible. I was telling someone the other day, I think this is where social media maybe brings us down a little bit, because everybody wants to joke about something.
It’s like, ‘oooooo he did this’, or, ‘he did that’ – no. When I wrestled before, when I came back through the curtain, I had somebody like ‘Taker, [Chris] Benoit, Booker T, Big Show – one of those guys that would pull me off to the side and say, ‘hey, good match.
However, have you thought about this?’ They would give you some type of pointer because, at the end of the day, we wanted the whole show to be amazing. So that’s what we would always focus on. It was just a very fortunate time for me because I had ‘Taker there and I had JBL, Benoit and all these different people that were always there to say, ‘hey, here’s what you can do better.’” On WWE releasing Rusev, he added: “And with Rusev, you know how it is in this business, people come and people go.
But with Rusev, I don’t think anyone is debating this: Rusev is an incredible talent. I loved working with him, [a] great guy across the board. I don’t know what transpired with that – with him leaving – don’t really know.
But if it’s back with the WWE or wherever he goes, he’s going to be a superstar. The guy is a superstar”.
