Bobby Lashley is a legitimate badass and is always up for a fight. He truly fears no man and that includes even The Rock. Therefore, it comes as no surprise he put The Rock on notice if the latter enters the Royal Rumble match.

TKO Holdings Group sent shockwaves through the professional wrestling world by introducing Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as new member of their Board of Directors. This groundbreaking decision has made a profound impact on the wrestling community for many reasons.

It is also speculated that The Rock will square off against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40, with a possible appearance at the Royal Rumble setting the stage for the bout.

While speaking to Riju Dasgupta, Bobby Lashley had a ton of praise for The Rock after his TKO position announcement. However, he also put The Rock on notice if the latter competes in the Royal Rumble match.


“That [TKO announcement] was incredible,” Lashley said. “I mean, it’s The Rock, probably one of the biggest names in everything right now, so when he comes back that always brings a tremendous amount of views.

“You know what, anybody that wants to take a step to that next level, take him out. If he comes in and I have an opportunity to throw him out, I will throw him out. Anything that he has, you have the ability to take from him if you take him out. So, I mean, it’s not gonna be a cakewalk for him.” 

The Rock’s WrestleMania 40 status after his TKO role was also revealed. Regardless, we will have to wait and see if The Rock will compete in the Royal Rumble match on January 27th.
