Bobby Lashley is no stranger to acting. After his first run with WWE ended, Lashley ventured to try his hand at MMA and acting. In fact, between 2009 and 2011, Lashley acted in a handful of movies including “The Way of War” and “Blood Out”. However, Lashley was also offered roles in two more big movie franchises.

While speaking to Sidewalk Entertainment, Bobby Lashley revealed that he had offers to act in ‘Mortal Kombat’ and ‘Stranger Things’. However, he admitted that he was more focused on his MMA career at the time, and so he couldn’t accept those roles.

“I did a handful of movies when I was in-between when I was fighting for a while, from my first run in WWE to my second run. I did about four or five (movies). Little, small parts. They needed that big bad villain to come in there, and I played that part. Of course, I got killed every time. I was offered things afterward. I was offered Mortal Kombat. There was Stranger Things. There were a lot of different ones that I was offered. At the time, I wasn’t really focused on doing that.

I was fighting at the time, I was trying to get back in professional wrestling. The acting part was something that I was interested in, but I don’t think it was the right timing. When I came back to WWE, I started doing more acting classes, working on that, and now I’m more open to doing it. We have some different projects in line right now. I can see myself kind of moving into a bigger role and doing some more movies when I slow it down in professional wrestling,” said Bobby Lashley


While it is unknown what role he was offered in Mortal Kombat and Stranger Things, it would’ve been interesting to see Bobby Lashley as part of those two projects. Maybe we will get to see him involved in bigger projects down the line. Only time will tell if the Almighty ends up in more films down the line, but his WWE schedule keeps him very busy.
