WWE Champion Bobby Lashley recently broke his silence on the marquee releases in the company that saw the releases of stars like Braun Strowman, Bray Wyatt and Hall of Famer Ric Flair. ‘The All Mighty’ was asked about the WWE firings during his interview with Sportskeeda.
Bobby Lashley opens up about the releases
The current WWE Champion has a small tip of advice for the stars who were released. He said that there is nothing to bad mouth about the company. He believes the stars including him have gained popularity from Vince McMahon’s company and also earned a lot. Thereby, they should stay motivated and keep their options open.

“If you’re good, your talent can’t be denied. Never burn bridges. I think a lot of times people will leave one organization and feel the need to bad mouth it, and I think that’s ridiculous. I think every one of us made our name from the WWE, or professional wrestling, and made a lot of money.”
“Leave with a lot of motivation, and keep doors open for yourself.”
Lashley talks about MVP’s contribution to his career
Cheap Heat with Peter Rosenberg spoke with Lashley and he had opened up about how influential the Hurt Business partner MVP has been for his career and how close they are in real life on top of their time in the pro wrestling business together. Here is what he said:
“I think MVP is great. He’s a great addition. When he had his Rumble match, it was one of those deals where he wanted to come back. When they threw him into a segment, they were like, ‘Wow, I didn’t know MVP could do that.” I’m like, ‘You didn’t know this about this guy?’ Me and MVP have been really good friends, and I think it’s fun to be able to do big things, make big money, and really do something special together. I always say this. I always say, ‘Sometimes you have to believe in somebody’s belief in you.’ That’s one thing that MVP was and that was that extra belief. Everybody that was in The Hurt Business, for Shelton, for Cedric, for myself, we keep running. We catch a lot of heat. Sometimes the crowd kind of turns, and they want to cheer for Bobby a little bit, but then MVP steps in there and squashes all that and gets us right back to where we need to be and lets them know what we’re about.”
Lashley is set to face Goldberg for the WWE Championship at upcoming SummerSlam pay-per-view.
