WWE Champion Bobby Lashley has been very dominant as the champion since winning it a couple of months ago on an episode of Monday Night RAW. Bobby Lashley also successfully defended his WWE Championship against Drew McIntyre on Night One of WrestleMania 37. On top of that, he once again retained his WWE Championship against Drew McIntyre and Braun Strowman in a triple threat match at WWE WrestleMania Backlash on May 16th.
On this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW, Kofi Kingston faced off against WWE Champion Bobby Lashley in a singles match. Drew McIntyre helped Kofi Kingston defeat The Almighty by hitting him with MVP’s cane. The interference would help Kingston hit a roll up on Lashley for the victory.
On the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed how much WWE is protecting Bobby Lashley. Dave Meltzer also noted that it could mean Kofi Kingston might be getting a WWE Title shot in the future.
“They don’t do a lot of long term stuff, but it’s very clear that it’s to protect at all costs. The only way to do a Bobby Lashley/ Kofi Kingston championship match is this. So, now they’ve got a reason to do the match. They wanted to make sure that they don’t hurt Bobby Lashley.”
