Bobby Lashley has been wrapped up in a sordid angle with Lana and Rusev over the past few weeks, ever since Lana made her return to WWE TV and decided to align herself with the former ECW Champion.
Lashley has been painted as the heel throughout the feud, with Lana recently accusing Lashley of being the one who informed her that Rusev cheated on her, which is why she decided to join him instead.
It hasn’t been the best storyline that Lashley has been part of in his WWE career, but the former Impact Wrestling star is obviously hoping that this will lead to much bigger things on WWE’s stage and one of these things could be a match with Brock Lesnar.
This match was teased when Lashley returned to the company last year since both men have MMA backgrounds, but this was never revisited. Lashley recently spoke to TV Insider where he revealed that he was enjoying his current feud with Rusev, but he had his sights set on the WWE Champion.
“The fight will be there. I’m in great shape. Brock is in great shape. As the weeks go by, the hardest thing is everybody hates me. But they hate him too, so who’re you going to cheer for? I’m stealing people’s wives, and he is being an as***le. Let’s just see. I think when the fight comes, they are going to want to see it,” he said via Sportskeeda.
Lesnar is currently preparing to face another former MMA fighter in the form of Cain Velasquez at Crown Jewel with the WWE Championship on the line. If WWE is able to put together an intriguing enough storyline surrounding it, then there is no reason why a match between Lashley and Lesnar can’t be just as hyped as this in the future.
