Bobby Lashley might leave WWE for return to MMA

Bobby Lashley was unable to retain his Intercontinental Title at Wrestlemania against Finn Balor. Finn Balor’s Demon King made short work of Lashley.

While speaking to Sky Sports, Bobby Lashley revealed that he plans on returning to MMA for more fights. He is still working under WWE, but time is running out. So it is possible we might see Lashley part ways with WWE following Summerslam, to pursue his interest in MMA.

“I think I am still probably going to do a couple more before it’s all said and done,” Lashley said. “I am still under contract at Bellator also, and if I go back I will give them a call and possibly go after (Ryan) Bader. I don’t want to wait too long, time is ticking.”

“I feel great. My body is 100% so I think maybe this summer, maybe after SummerSlam.”

We will get to know in due time what Lashley plans to do. It definitely sounds like he isn’t done with MMA at this point.

    Good luck Bobby, can i carry your bags to the shuttle bus?

  • Darrin Tyler

    good, tired of seeing him every week. he’s a terrible wrestler. i havent seen him in MMA so he could be really good over there. After Summerslam??? thats a loooong time from now. things change fast in both mma and wwe….

    MIGHT? Why the sudden speculation? If he does, it’s too soon because the scripts written a year in advance, so he’s well aware of what he’ll be doing and receiving throughout his contract.

    I doubt that will happen as he is not even a fraction of the the draw that Lesnar is/was.
    I mean, love or hate Lesnar, when he returned there was huge hype and if he returns to UFC, there will be huge hype.
    Lashley returning to WWE was little more than a small ripple of excitement and going back to MMA .. well he was hardly a huge name there was he.

    I do not think many people will miss him. Of course a lot of that is how WWE has booked him, but at the same time he has hardly done anything himself that makes people say “Wow, I really wanna see Bobby Lashley”.
    His promo’s are awful (hence adding Rush) and his in ring work is nothing more than solid.

    PS: Harrison, if time is running “UP” surely that means time is getting longer, not shorter.

  • Keith Learmonth

    Look, as long as he doesn’t become another Lesnar, where he gets paid more than everyone despite his priorities lying elsewhere, Lashley can do what he wants.

  • Matt evens

    Good hope he goes !! He is boring and bland with a touch of stale mixed in. He never connected with the fans or drew a dime in this business.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    Well to be honest he not really that good. So I don’t WWE would mind if he left again.
