Bobby Lashley def. Sami Zayn

Bobby Lashley def. Sami Zayn

CHICAGO — It took Bobby Lashley a minute to get hold of Sami Zayn at WWE Money in the Bank, but once he did, it went south in a hurry for the trash-talking Canadian, who quickly found that his mouth had written a check that his body couldn’t cash.

After weeks of insults to Lashley’s family and military service, the normally genial big man was raring to fight Zayn from the jump. However, the former NXT Champion had no problem with using his “catlike agility” to play cat-and-mouse with his opponent. Nor did he have a problem raking Lashley’s eyes and booting him through the ropes to finagle a count-out attempt. Nor did he have a problem punching and kicking Lashley while he was down.

Unfortunately, once Lashley grabbed hold of Zayn — literally, he grabbed his balled-up fist and squeezed, in an echo of their handshake a few weeks ago — it was all Bobby, all the time. After pulverizing Zayn with a clothesline, shoulder tackle into the corner and a big Spinebuster, the former ECW Champion executed not one, not two, but three stalling suplexes, each punctuated with a gruesome backbreaker. All of which left Sami so beaten down that Lashley pinned him by simply placing a hand on his chest.

Given the severity of Lashley’s aggression, Zayn likely won’t be convinced that his opponent is as honorable a person as he presents himself to be. But if nothing else, he’ll probably think twice before picking a fight with him from now on.
