Bobby Lashley: Bio
Looking for credentials? The dominant Bobby Lashley is a three-time wrestling national champion and a four-time wrestling All-American. He's also a two-time Armed Forces Champion and took home the silver medal in the 2002 CISM World Championships, competing against the best of the rest of the world's military.
Yet, for Lashley, all that was a precursor to training for WWE. First coming to the squared circle through WWE's ECW brand, Lashley fought his way to becoming one of the final ECW Champions. He then joined Raw, where he continued to make an impact that included a hard-hitting reign as United States Champion and a key role in the legendary "Battle of the Billionaires" at WrestleMania 23 where he took on Mr. McMahon's representative Umaga and was chiefly responsible for the WWE Chairman being shaved bald.
After further honing his craft outside of WWE in the MMA world, Lashley made an explosive surprise return to Raw one night after WrestleMania 34. Once again firmly entrenched on the red brand, he focused on using his dominant style and power to lay waste to any that got in his way.
The suddenly remorseless (and “All Mighty”) Lashley gave the world a glimpse of his cold-blooded new attitude when he defeated Kevin Owens and ruthlessly attacked him after their bout, forcing KO to require surgery on both knees and sending him to the shelf. Soon after, Lashley became a two-time Intercontinental Champion.
So if it’s credentials you’re looking for, Lashley has plenty. And he’s not through acquiring them.
