Bobby Lashley has a huge chance at the WWE Championship tonight as he goes up against The Miz and he credits his time in IMPACT Wrestling for helping him be ready for the moment.
“I think [that] 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 told Bleacher Report. “‘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.”
“The Dominator” also praised WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and current rival Drew McIntyre for having a similar mindset to his.
“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.”
