WWE’s eagerly awaited King of the Ring tournament encountered a setback when a significant competitor, Bobby Lashley, sustained an injury. We now have more information on when WWE came to know about this.

On Thursday, WWE SmackDown GM Nick Aldis disclosed that Lashley sustained an injury during training. As result, Angelo Dawkins stepped in to replace him and faced Toma Tonga in the first-round match of the ongoing tournament. Tonga emerged victorious over Dawkins, advancing to the next round.

Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select reported that WWE came to know about Bobby Lashley being injured in Monday this week, so WWE wasn’t really surprised with his unfortunate removal.

“Yeah, they knew he was injured as of Monday, so him being removed isn’t necessarily a big surprise within the company. Angelo Dawkins is not expected to win that match tonight, but I think it’s a good spot for him. I know a lot of people said well, Montes Ford,’ but Tanga Tanga is going to win that match. And I think it’s a good spot for Angelo Dawkins, but they knew he was sidelined.”


We will have to wait and see when Bobby Lashley will make his return to WWE television as fans are simply sad that Lashley wasn’t able to show off his skills this week.
