MVP leads Bobby Lashley to the ring every week as WWE Champion. The All Mighty got to where he is by a lot of work, and that makes him very happy.
During After The Bell, MVP discussed the real man behind the intimidating WWE Champion. He said that Lashley is happiest when he’s working hard and training. Getting ready for a fight helps him stay focused as he turns his true personality up to 11.
“I always tell young, up and coming professional wrestlers, when you’re trying to play a character that’s not really you, it’s going to be difficult and fans can register that. Sometimes it’s not even consciously, it’s subconsciously they pick up on it. But, Bobby Lashley really is that combat athlete, Bobby loves to train, Bobby is happiest when he’s training and fighting. The Lashley that you see on the screen is Lashley when he’s his own personality turned way up. MVP is me, with my volume, my personality volume on 11. If you look, that’s the reason that we work so well.”
“Historically all of the greats, Stone Cold Steve Austin, that’s Steve with the volume turned way up to his personality, Dwayne Johnson is The Rock, he just turns his volume on his personality way up. In this case, that’s why me and Bobby work so well together because the dynamic, Bobby is a man of few words and I always got something to say.”
WWE split Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin up from the Hurt Business for some reason. That decision didn’t have a lot of backers in the locker room either, but Lashley carried on after WrestleMania 37 as WWE Champion without his backup.
Now Lashley is set to defend the title against both Braun Strowman and Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania Backlash on May 16. Obviously, he’s happy to have another big goal in front of him.
