While speaking to Sports Illustrated, United States Champion Bobby Lashley discussed his current run in WWE and having his sights set on the WWE Championship.
Below is what he said:
“I’ve got the United States Title, and that’s an amazing accomplishment, but I need a stamp on my career. That’s the WWE Championship, and the opportunity is there for me. I’m the ‘Black Superman,’ and that World Title is what I need. I just need to stay healthy, keep kicking a$$, and continue moving forward.
If I win that World Title, I’ll always be known as a former World Champion. I want to do that for myself, I want to do that for my children, and I also want to do it for the kids that look like me.
I am putting in the work to be World Champion. Even if it takes years, I’ll stay in this business as long as it takes for me to get there.”
Lashley noted that The Hurt Business is a rebirth of him, MVP and Shelton Benjamin together. He didn’t mention Cedric Alexander, as the interview was done before Alexander joined the group.
The All Mighty also said that he doesn’t get involved in backstage politics.
“I’m not a guy that is going to politic or badmouth someone in this company. I don’t do it. Ever. I’ve had people I was wrestling go to Vince and say, ‘I think it would be a good idea if I beat Bobby.’ And it was completely ignorant for someone to ever say that if you saw the two of us. I’ve always done what the company thought was best, but I’ve also always known what I was capable of doing. I know that I’m valuable and I know what I can accomplish.”
