As seen on Thursday’s episode of Impact Wrestling, GFW continued the angle with Lashley teasing choosing MMA over wrestling. Lashley ended up picking MMA over professional wrestling.
The company issued the following storyline statement regarding Lashley’s status with the company:
“IMPACTWrestling.Com received the following message from Jim Cornette, “due to the heinous actions of Lashley and American Top Team on IMPACT Thursday night, we have made the decision not to give Bobby his unconditional release from his valid contract. Lashley will be at our disposal when required. That is all.” What that means is Lashley remains under contract. Stay tuned for more.”
Bobby Lashley and American Top Team both responded to the statement with the following remarks:
