WWE Backlash will see Drew McIntyre defend the WWE Title against Bobby Lashley. A recent report could indicate that it will be a big night for The All Mighty on June 14th.
Bobby Lashley recently spoke with Metro about their journeys through pro wrestling. Lashley stated that he had to scrape and claw to get where he was. On the other hand, Drew McIntyre was the Chosen One.
“I think he and I both followed the same path a little bit, when it comes to that. So right now, that match is big because he talks about how the locker room has changed, how he wants to make a change, how he has to show people that they should appreciate being there.”
“I’m in the same boat – I’m in kind of a different boat that he is. I was here for a long time, but I wasn’t the chosen one – I was never the chosen one. I had to scrape and claw to get up here. I think the history we have, it’s gonna be kinda like butting heads. We kinda rolled in the same path, but one of us was granted a position, the other person had to work his ass off to get there.”
Bobby Lashley had to work very hard to earn his spot, but so did Drew McIntyre. The two met in Impact Wrestling, but Backlash will be a much different situation all around.
