KEY POINTS

  • Bobby Lashley was released from the  WWE contract in 2008
  • He returned to the company in 2018
  • He says the sole purpose of his return is fighting Brock Lesnar

Former Intercontinental World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) champion Bobby Lashley reportedly returned after a decade only to fight against Brock Lesnar in the ring.

Lashley, who first signed up with the WWE Company in 2004, was released from the contract four years later in 2008 after a six-month break.

A WWE face off against the current champion, Brock Lesnar, is surely the most beneficial fixture for any wrestler and there were no surprises when Lashley revealed that he returned to the WWE setup after 10 long years just to clash against Brock Lesnar. Ever since Lashley made a comeback in 2018, he has had a roller-coaster ride on the main roster.

In a recent interview, Lashley revealed that bagging a match against Brock Lesnar is on top of his wishlist before the WWE superstar went on to suggest that the sole purpose of return was taking on Brock Lesnar, while everything apart from that made no sense to him.

“That’s the only reason I came back [to WWE] so everything that I’m doing around it, I don’t even know why I’m doing," Lashley said in a recent interview

Before he finally gets the match against Brock Lesnar, whom he called the most decorated superstar of this generation, Lashley has promised to take up any role in the WWE.

“I’m just doing whatever I need to do to get to that match - whether it’s singing, bringing my sisters on or playing that nonsense. They’ve held me back this long and I don’t know if it’s a point of paying dues here. I don’t care what it is, I’m going to get that match,” Lashley added.

The 43-year-old American wrestler is currently engaged in a romantic storyline involving Lana, Rusev and Liv Morgan. Even though the story angle has received some criticism from the WWE Universe, the WWE Company does not seem to give up on it already.

Lashley is not arguing about his current situation in WWE because he hopes everything eventually will lead him to Brock Lesnar, his ultimate goal.
