Bellator heavyweight Bobby Lashley is on an eight-fight winning streak in MMA and also is the current TNA professional wrestling World Heavyweight Champion. With all of his success in mixed martial arts and professional wrestling, Lashley is still gunning for one big opponent.
Lashley added that Lesnar is at the top of the mountain in terms of stardom and just wants the chance to compete against “The Beast Incarnate.”
“Brock is at one of the highest points in the business, so high that they’re trying to bring him down to make other stars. Brock brings legitimacy to the business, and he has Paul Heyman with him to do everything else he can’t do. I’m completely up for that fight.”
With Lashley and Lesnar competing in different promotions in both MMA and professional wrestling, it’s hard to say if the two giants will ever meet in a bout. However, with being the TNA professional wrestling World Heavyweight Champion, Lashley doesn’t rule out going back to the WWE where he would be able to meet Lesnar in the ring.
“I’m really happy where I am,” said Lashley. “I’ve never been a politics guy in wrestling, I’m just someone who came out and worked. I’m a product of amateur wrestling, and there is no one there to help you with matches or win matches—you have to do it yourself. I love wrestling, and of course WWE is the main stage, but I’m happy to be with TNA. If the right scenario ever came up to return, then it’s a possibility, but I am extremely happy where I am right now.”
