Bobby Lashley Bringing Back Fired WWE Star?

Lio Rush has teased returning to WWE Raw with Bobby Lashley in a new Twitter photo, as seen below. WWE brought back three more fired names on SmackDown last week, three favorites of Triple H.



Triple H is EVP of Talent Relations and Head of Creative and it comes after Vince McMahon recently announced his retirement from his roles as Chairman and CEO of WWE. It was later clarified that he was also done with his work on creative.’The Game’ has already started making some changes to the dynamic of the roster. Bayley made her return to the company after injury, while Io Shirai and Dakota Kai have been signed back with the company. Karrion Kross, who was released has been brought back as well. It turns out Hunter is eyeing to add some more talents under his regime even if it’s an AEW star. Hit Row stable recently returned on SmackDown after it was previously reported. Three members of The Hit Row – Top Dolla, B-Fab and Ashante Adonis returned. It turns out Top Dolla had a lot of heat backstage which resulted in his release.

Top Dolla talks about having contact with Triple H after release

Top Dolla (AJ Francis) appeared on Busted Open Radio to talk about his return to WWE during Friday Night SmackDown.

“I was talking to Hunter even when Hunter was not in charge of NXT anymore. Even when we went up to SmackDown, I never stopped talking to Hunter. When we got released, I never stopped talking to Hunter. We had talked a lot already about hopefully working together in the future. I would send him clips of stuff that we were doing. I sent him clips from GCW. I sent him clips from ACW. I would send him clips of me and Tehuti (Adonis) working as a tag team letting him know that the band was still together.”

Top Dolla continued:

“I’m very grateful because in the conversations I had with Triple H, he was like, ‘Man, I don’t know what happened before, and to be honest with you, I don’t care. It’s a new place. I want you to understand that you have a clean slate. There’s no hard feelings on this side, and I hope that you come with no hard feelings on your side.’ To me it was just like a breath of fresh air because it was like, I was down.”

On Hit Row’s release last year:

“When we got released, Hit Row was hotter than anything in wrestling, period. I don’t care who you are. You can get your feelings hurt if you want to, but Hit Row was hotter than anything in wrestling, period. When we got released, I felt like I had something great and it just turned into ashes in my hand. It made me stop watching wrestling for the first time in my life. I’m 32 years old and I went eight months without watching wrestling, like at all, nothing. I saw the last 10 minutes of the Royal Rumble. That was it. That’s the only wrestling I saw for like nine months. What killed me was I felt like if I watched wrestling, I would just see that Hit Row should be in that spot right now. That’s what we should be doing right now, and it killed me.”

He continued:

“He (Triple H) knows the real me. He did Most Wanted Treasures with me. He saw me in a non-wrestling sense. He saw me in a non-the boys in the locker room sense. He’s seen me and knows how I really am. So he knows that all that talk about me being hard to work with, and being difficult, and all that was bullsh*t, and he knew that. So he was willing to put himself and his neck on the line to be like, ‘Nah, these guys are talented. I want them back.'”
