Bobby Lashley: Bio
The focused, driven Bobby Lashley has always been clear about his ultimate goal. He's wrestled his entire life, all with the purpose of one day entering sports-entertainment. The dominant Superstar 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. This mixed martial arts expert is already a renowned champion at the amateur level, and Lashley now ranks among WWE's elite Superstars.
First coming to the squared circle through WWE's ECW brand, Lashley shook The Land of the Extreme at its foundation as ECW Champion. 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, Lashley made an explosive surprise return to Monday Night Raw one night after WrestleMania 34. Now, once again firmly entrenched on the red brand, he is focused on using his dominant style and power to lay waste to any that get in his way. Regardless of whether he holds a title or not, Bobby Lashley has put the roster on notice and will always fight with the heart of a champion.
