Bobby Lashley won the WWE Championship for the first time since joining WWE in 2005, and the reign of dominance has just begun! While it’s certain Lashley will not defend the championship against The Miz at WrestleMania, what’s uncertain is his Mania opponent. Guess what? ‘The Almighty’ has given his take on that too!
Bobby Lashley shares WWE Superstars he’d like to face at WrestleMania
In an interview with Ryan Satin of FOX Sports, the newly crowned WWE Champion shared who he would like to face at the ‘Grandest Stage of them all’ this year. Lashley’s top picks were none other than Drew McIntyre, Brock Lesnar, and John Cena! That being said, who is most likely to face him this year?
Drew McIntyre is the most likely opponent for ‘The Almighty’ at WrestleMania 37. Lashley himself has admitted that the focus must be on McIntyre heading into WrestleMania. Plus, McIntyre hasn’t got his hands on Lashley since the latter cost him the WWE Championship at the Elimination Chamber a couple of weeks ago.
Lashley’s next choice is Brock Lesnar. This has been a dream match for millions of fans, and Bobby Lashley himself for quite a few years now. A Bobby Lashley-Brock Lesnar clash only brings $$$ signs in front of our eyes. It would be a top draw at WrestleMania if WWE plays their cards well with this.
Bobby Lashley’s third and final choice for WrestleMania is John Cena. This match has the least chances of coming to life. There is no backstory here between Cena and Lashley since the latter’s return in 2017. Not just that, Cena has himself stated that he would miss WrestleMania this year due to filming commitments.
Lashley vs Brock Lesnar vs Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 37?
In an interview a couple of weeks ago, Bobby Lashley expressed his desire to face Drew McIntyre and Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania. However, he also stated that he and McIntyre could put on a great match themselves, having someone like Lesnar just adds a lot to it.
WWE and Brock Lesnar have not come to terms on a new contract as of today, but that could change anytime. The only reason WWE has not offered Brock a contract is that there are no fans in attendance for events yet. But WrestleMania is a different ballgame, and ‘The Beast Incarnate’ can always make it to the ‘Show of Shows’ for a hefty payday!
What do you think will happen? Will it be McIntyre vs Lashley at WrestleMania or will Lesnar somehow add himself in the mix? Let us know in the comments below!
