Kofi Kingston lost the WWE title to Brock Lesnar in a squash match on Smackdown in October 2019, but he seemed pleased with Bobby Lashley squashing The Miz to win the WWE Title in a Lumberjack Match on Raw tonight. Bruce Prichard ‘ruined’ Lashley’s title victory.
Kofi tweeted, “Ok @fightbobby!”
Booker T said, “The Almighty! @fightbobby you did it! #RAW.”
Bobby Lashley credited his run with TNA Impact Wrestling as helping him get to the point of being WWE Champion.
He told Bleacher Report, “I think [that Impact run] helped out tremendously because once you come into WWE and they say you’re going to be a champion, there’s going to be some uncertainties and insecurities,” Lashley said about his Impact run. “‘Am I able to carry that ball? Am I able to do it? Am I able to have those big matches with everyone?’ Because that’s what you need to do as a champion, and when I was in Impact, I had those opportunities.”
He continued on about how his breakout performances in Impact gave him the confidence he needed to thrive at the main event level, “There’s no question in my mind whether I should be on top or not. Some people already know it. You see Roman [Reigns] walk out there as the head of the table. He can’t even look down his chin is so high up. He has that confidence because he’s been in those matches with The Undertaker and Brock and all these different people. Same with Drew. Drew’s the same way. Drew can’t even see people that are under 6’5″ because he’s so high up right now, and he knows what he’s capable of doing. Not everybody has that.” Lio Rush released an emotional video for Lashley’s title win.
