Bobby Lashley won the WWE Championship after beating The Miz on Monday Night RAW back in March last year. Since then, he was booked as a very dominant force and had Vince McMahon’s seal of approval. Lashley then lost that title to Big E in a huge moment that fans will always remember.
He is also one of the most legitimate athletes to have competed in the world of both MMA and pro wrestling. Lashley has a great record in the MMA world, especially in Strikeforce. On the other hand, Brock Lesnar had a great run in the UFC where he even become the Heavyweight Champion.
While speaking Ariel Helwani on his show, The MMA Hour, Lashley was asked who he thought was the more skilled MMA fighter. Lashley claimed that he was the better MMA fighter in the end.
“Without trying to disrespect him, I don’t know what he’s capable doing as far as, like, skill wise because I don’t know. Afterwards, I taught boxing, I taught jiu-jitsu at my gym. As far as skill for skill and knowledge for knowledge, I have a lot more than he does.”
The Almighty and The Beast clashed at the Royal Rumble for the WWE Championship. In the end, Lashley won the match after Paul Heyman turned on Brock Lesnar.
We will have to wait and see what WWE will have planned for Bobby Lashley as the WWE Champion in the coming months as WrestleMania season is in full swing now.
