Bobby Lashley is a legitimate badass and is always up for a fight. He truly fears no man and that is exactly why he vowed to change his character again and destroy Karrion Kross following this week’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown.

In recent months, Bobby Lashley and The Street Profits, consisting of Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford, have been locked in a heated feud with Karrion Kross and the rest of The Final Testament, including Akam, Rezar, Paul Ellering, and Scarlett. The tension escalated when Kross attacked Lashley backstage during the March 29 episode of WWE SmackDown.

This interference by Kross resulted in The Street Profits losing their match against Austin Theory and Grayson Waller. Had The Street Profits won, they would have secured a spot in the Six-Pack Tag Team Ladder Match at WrestleMania 40.

In a SmackDown Exclusive, Bobby Lashley opened up about his recent setback and declared his intent to undergo a significant change.


“I don’t even know where I’m at right now,” he admitted, reflecting on the turmoil he’s faced. “I tried to be a nice guy. I tried to suppress that anger that I had in me for so many years. Tried to put on a smile, do what everybody wanted.”

Lashley acknowledged Karrion Kross’s critique that he tries to please too many people, confessing that he had been living a facade to avoid confronting his own inner demons. He lamented his actions that cost The Street Profits their chance at WrestleMania glory, recognizing the disappointment he caused.

“Tonight, I not only let down myself, but I let down those two guys that had an opportunity to go to WrestleMania and win back those tag team titles,” he acknowledged. “But instead, I was trying to do the right thing.”

Lashley vowed a transformation, promising to reclaim his former self and confront Kross and The Final Testament head-on.

“Let me tell you one thing. It’s gonna be a different me, and it starts with you, Kross,” he declared. “Next time I see you and AOP… the old me is coming back. I’m destroying you, I’m destroying everybody else in my way. I was the champion for a reason. I’m gonna get back to being the person I was before, whether you like me or not.”

We will have to wait and see whether Bobby Lashley and Karrion Kross will end up squaring off against each other at WrestleMania 40 in a tag team match as fans just want him on the card somehow.
