Bobby Lashley is an extremely well-decorated superstar in the world of wrestling, but he’s yet to claim the WWE or Universal Championship. However, that hasn’t stopped Lashley from dreaming about it, and wanting to face the best of the best on his path to greatness.
Speaking to talkSPORT recently, Lashley said that he would still love to face Brock Lesnar in the ring, and still has the hunger to become champion deep down inside of him. Check out some of the highlights below:
On potentially facing Brock Lesnar:
We are fans the same way – well, at least I am – the same way everybody else is. When I heard the winner gets Brock, I was like, is this it? Am I finally getting it? Then it’s ‘not now!’
I don’t know what the situation is. I don’t know what the case is. But I do believe eventually it will happen before Brock and I are senior citizens. The one thing that people – and I don’t want to switch gears here – but Drew McIntyre is a Brock Lesnar. He definitely is. I think that a matchup with Drew is just as exciting as Brock, to me, if done right.
On what keeps him motivated:
I definitely want to win a world title. I definitely want to. The years that I’ve put in the business and the matches I’ve had with so many different people, I definitely want to. But another thing I want to do, and I hope this is not shooting myself in the foot or kicking myself in the butt, but when I first got in the wrestling business and I was first starting out, there were guys like myself who were a bit older in the business.
And one thing they did, they wanted to make the younger guys. But at the same it in making the younger guys, they had to have something credible for the younger guys to go after. And I think that I’m one of those guys. The younger guys should be hungry to come and beat me. Because I’m not someone you should just be able to beat.
