‘The Almighty’ Bobby Lashley won the WWE Championship on last night’s episode of Monday Night RAW. The Hurt Business stable member faced The Miz in the middle of the show, only for Miz to exit the ring as soon as the bell rang. With The Miz escaping, it appeared as though Bobby Lashley had lost his opportunity at winning the coveted title.
Shane McMahon confirmed that the match would happen again later that night, with a Lumberjack stipulation added to the Championship match. Lashley then won the match and the WWE Championship for the first time in his career.
Former WWE Champion Drew McIntyre reacted to Lashley’s win on RAW Talk following the episode. “He’s worked hard for it,” said McIntyre on RAW Talk. “The man is an absolute animal in every possible way, in the gym and ring. He’s earned this moment.”
Drew McIntyre on Bobby Lashley
“The idea of Drew McIntyre vs. Bobby Lashley is pretty big for me” the Scottish Superstar continued. It feels like a significant match for RAW. If it happens at the biggest stage of them all, that’s just fine with me. There’s no way I’m not going to try and work myself into the main event of WrestleMania.”
“As someone who has been champion for a long time, I’m just going to give a little piece of advice to Lashley: there’s a lot of pressure that comes with this. Lashley doesn’t have to worry about the physical aspect like The Miz, but he’s surrounded himself with a bunch of associates who might be jealous of him now. I found that out first-hand with Sheamus. So, that’s some free advice to you, Bobby.”
It has not been confirmed if Drew McIntyre will be challenging for the WWE Championship at Fastlane or WrestleMania 37 in April.
