Bobby Lashley talks about getting outrageous storylines instead of match with Brock Lesnar

Bobby Lashley is currently engaged in a feud with Rusev, where he has stolen Lana from him. There is a possibility this might become his new gimmick. However, Lashley still wants to face Brock Lesnar.



Lashley recently talked to TV Insider, where he talked about WWE giving him outrageous angles. What he really wants is to face off against Brock Lesnar, but he will continue to do what WWE asks of him. He hopes WWE will eventually give him a serious angle.

“I’m still trying. It’s hard for me. I came from a world of amateur wrestling. It was always shut up and train. The last thing you would want to do is anything else.”

“Everything else was shut up and train. When I first came into this world, it was more hardcore. That fighting style was real, and I fit right in. Coming back this time, there are so many different characters, and people are talking about entrances and costumes.”

“I was like, ‘Where is Brock? Sign us up. Let’s do this. Let’s fight.’ They were like, ‘No, we need you to dance on Instagram. We need you to tell a joke.”

“We need you to look sloppy and do some different things. Sing on TV. Make out with this lady.’ All these things they want that are different. I didn’t understand it for a long time, but I do now. Just to see me open up where people can relate to you and get behind you.”

“People can get behind you or against you, but they know who you are. I don’t think they know who I really am. They know what I’m capable of doing, but they don’t know who I am. I think that is what we are trying to do. Just crack the shell and show a little bit more of me.”

Perhaps we might see Lashley square off against Lesnar in a match in the future. Till then, he is busy being Lana’s lover and apparently enjoying the angle.
