A run-up that lasted 16 years, between tears and sweat, but in the end Bobby Lashley made it. In fact, during the last episode of Raw, the member of the Hurt Business managed to fulfill his lifelong dream, becoming WWE Champion for the first time in his career.
Milestone celebrated together with his great friend MVP who, coincidentally, was by his side even when he won the world title at Impact Wrestling. A historic moment that sparked the enthusiasm of fans on social media, who clamored for a match between him and Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania.
The name of "The Beast" in fact quickly became a trending topic on Twitter during the evening, with over 10 thousand mentions. WWE could therefore capitalize on this great interest of fans to propose a real dream match that has been talked about for years now.
In fact, since returning to Raw in 2018, Bobby Lashley had repeatedly pushed for a meeting with the former champion, but his upper floors had never indulged him. Now everything could change. Even before Almighty One became champion on Raw, there was nothing but talk of his interaction with Brock Lesnar.
Bobby Lashley won the WWE Title this week on Raw
During 'After the Bell' Corey Graves said he was practically certain of this match and Bobby Lashley himself renewed his interest, stating however that Lesnar must line up to have a titled shot.
The last PPV before WrestleMania 37 will be Fastlane, the first to air on the Peacock streaming platform. Many therefore think that Lesnar's return to WWE can take place on that occasion or in the next Raw, in order to make the match official in view of the great event.
"The Beast" was virtually stuck in the pits for a year after losing to Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 36 and it was rumored that he had not renewed his contract with WWE. The truth, however, is that Brock Lesnar continues to dictate his terms and to do whatever he wants, appearing at any time without giving any kind of explanation.
Bobby Lashley deservedly won the WWE Championship on RAW from The Miz, and he is now set to be the top guy during the company's most crucial phase of the year. The new WWE Champion caught up with Bleacher Report ahead of RAW, and he spoke about when he plans on retiring from pro wrestling.
Bobby Lashley admitted that he doesn't see himself performing for more than a decade. The reigning WWE Champion said that he is currently on a sprint, and he doesn't have a problem with fast-tracked results.
