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.
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.
While speaking in an interview with Bleacher Report, Bobby Lashley talked about his WWE title wins over The Miz and Brock Lesnar. Lashley stated that his win over Lesnar was special as he defeated The Beast Incarnate for the belt.
“The first time you win it is always that shock of winning it for the first time. It’s breaking that barrier, getting to that next level. This time was a little bit different, however; the person I had to beat to get it made it that much more special. Those were two big goals I had coming back: definitely to win the WWE Championship and then to have that match with Brock that everybody’s been wanting for years. It’s huge. This has been a great year for me.”
Bobby Lashley is set to defend his WWE Championship at the Elimination Chamber event in Saudi Arabia on February 19th. We will have to wait and see whether he will end up winning the match or not.
