After Bobby Lashley beat Brock Lesnar at WWE Elimination Chamber via DQ, it seemed like we were going to get a rivalry between The Almighty and Bray Wyatt. The two men even took shots at each other for a couple of weeks. Lashley even went over to SmackDown where Uncle Howdy tried to assault him but failed.

The rivalry between Bobby Lashley and Bray Wyatt went cold pretty fast, because Wyatt has been absent. As Ringside News exclusively reported, Bray Wyatt is still not cleared to compete.

With WrestleMania just a week away, there has been no talk of a match between the two of them. In fact, there have also been reports that Bray Wyatt will likely miss WrestleMania due to a physical issue.

Bobby Lashley, on the other hand, has promised to be at WrestleMania and WWE is even looking at alternative opponents for the Almighty One. However, it seems like he has one very interested opponent who is waiting to face him if given the opportunity.


During a recent appearance on Insight with Chris Van Vliet, Chris Masters revealed that he has left his calendar free for WrestleMania 39 in case Lashley wants to face him.

“Yes, he did [Lashley reacted to the interview in January],” Masters said. “And I just noticed today that Wyatt is out for WrestleMania. So Bobby, he is looking for an opponent and I told Bobby under his Instagram posts that I left that date open for him. So maybe one day we will get this Hurt Lock, Master Lock match. Believe me, I’m pushing for it. But um, you know, couple loose ends I got to tie up there.”

Chris Masters has been trying to get a match with Bobby Lashley for some time. However, it remains to be seen if he will succeed in his mission. Until then, stay tuned to Ringside News.
