WWE Rumors: Bobby Lashley close to signing with WWE; in Philly tonight?

It looks like WWE could be adding another huge name to their roster this week. During NXT Takeover: Philadelphia, WWE made it known to the world that, along with Ricochet, Candice LeRae, and War Machine, they’ve acquired EC3.

According to the Wrestling Observer, former Impact Champion Bobby Lashley is extremely close to signing with the WWE. As of this moment, Lashley is still technically under contract with Impact until early February. However, it’s possible a deal could’ve been made between Impact and WWE.

EC3 was granted a full release from Impact, so there’s a chance the Dominator could make his return to the WWE at the Royal Rumble. If we don’t see him tonight, which is likely, we’ll see him in the near future.

    Not quite sure what deal TNA would make with WWE as they really do not have much to bargain with.
    It’s not like when WWE needed Ric Flair for the HoF, so did a deal to allow them to use Christian.
    I doubt WWE wants Lashley THAT badly.

    The only reason I could see TNA letting him completely out of contract to appear at the Rumble is if it will save them money, as let’s face it, the only reason they gave up on the Broken gimmick was because of the money the legal fight was costing, despite trying to promote it as them just being ultra nice.

    That is the absolute last guy I want to see making a WWE return.

    Seeing Lashley in the Rumble would be sweet.
