Lillian Garcia welcomes Bobby Lashley to the show.
Garcia asks Lashley about working with Umaga, Vince McMahon and Donald Trump at WrestleMania 23. He points out that be involved in that angle and match was a very cool experience. He’s unsure if he was WWE’s first choice for that role, but once he was chosen he did everything he could to make it the best it could be. He points out that it was impossible to know at the time that he was working with the future President of the United States, but that certainly puts an exclamation point on the event now in hindsight.
Lashley informs that he was a shy kid growing up. He was also very nervous about making his WWE debut many years ago. He informs that his WWE debut sort of came out of nowhere, and Paul Heyman was actually the person who came to get Lashley backstage prior to his debut. He told Heyman that he was nervous, but Heyman told him to put that aside and own the moment.
Lashley points out that as a performer you can be nervous for weeks prior to a big match and the anxiety could kill you, but in a split second that moment will be over and then it’ll all be forgotten. He had to change his mindset to realize that he was living his dream, and when you get into that state of mind it’s impossible to be nervous.
