Bobby Lashley was taken out early in the 2022 Men’s Elimination Chamber match after announced as being in “concussion protocol.” While his concussion was work, he might be really injured.
Lashley wasn’t legitimately injured during the match. However, it was recently revealed on The Ringer Wrestling Show that Lashley had been dealing with a legitimate injury from his match against Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble. Former WWE writer Kazeem Famuyide noted on the podcast:
“I have under good authority that Lashley is shoot hurt and has been hurt since the Rumble match. If you’ve noticed, he hasn’t worked any RAWs. He hasn’t really defended his title. He was shoot hurt at the Lesnar match at the Rumble.”
“From what I’m told, it’s for at least 4 months. Shoulder surgery. I’m hearing that he might not even make it to Wrestlemania. He’s a freak athlete so there’s a possibility.”
Brock Lesnar won the Elimination Chamber by quickly eliminating Rollins, Riddle, Theory, and Styles. While Roman Reigns successfully defended his Universal Championship against Goldberg. Now both the champions are set to face each other at WrestleMania 38, Sunday, 3 April 2022.
As for Lashley, it seems he might be out for a while. We will have to see. Famuyide’s comments can be heard at around the five minute mark in the podcast below.
