Bobby Lashley says the next time he locks up with Brock Lesnar the two stars should leave the ring behind and meet in the street.
At Crown Jewel Brock Lesnar and Bobby Lashley went one-on-one for only the second time in their illustrious careers. The first time came at the 2022 Royal Rumble when The Beast Incarnate lost his WWE Championship to Lashley – with more than a little help from Roman Reigns.
In Saudi Arabia, however, the outcome was different with Lesnar picking up the victory but in an uncharacteristic fashion. The All Mighty one dominated his opponent throughout and had Lesnar trapped in The Hurt Lock when Lesnar walked up the turnbuckles, pushing Lashley back and trapping him for the pinfall. An angry Lashley then laid Lesnar out after the loss.
Speaking on WWE’s The Bump, Bobby Lashley discussed the way he sees his meetings with Brock Lesnar have gone, saying the record books might say one thing but he believes something else:
“Me and Brock have had this thing for a long time, and I think the wins and losses, that is important. But how I look at it, I have one and he has one. In a perfect world, I wish I would have won that one and then said that I had 2-0 and then kind of sent him on his way. But you never know when Brock’s gonna come back. So right now, it’s even. It’s fifty-fifty. How I look at it is, I pinned him once, and I beat up him the second time. So as far as I’m concerned, I have two wins against him. But as far as the records, we’re one and one.”
“So I guess that trilogy is something that we need to have, and then we can do that at ‘Mania. We can do that at any one of these pay-per-views coming up. I’m ready, man. I’m here every week. We’re kind of Brock’s time with that, so until Brock decides to come out from his little hiding spot wherever he lives or wherever he stays, we can have that their match.”
“But from now til then, I’m just gonna keep nesting people up and sending little statements and messages out to him to let him know that when he comes back, it’s just gonna be a different character. He’s gonna get what we got at Crown Jewel and probably worse.”
Lashley added that he thinks the next time the two crossover MMA stars face off it should be in the street:
“He’s making it personal, and if he makes it personal, okay, we fight at a different level. That’s why, at Crown Jewel, I didn’t care about winning the match. I wanted to kick his ass, and I wanted to let him know that I don’t appreciate what he’s been doing this entire time, that he’s been making it personal. If you make it personal, it’s a street fight.”
“So the next time we fight, I don’t even think it should be in a ring. I think we should go fight outside. I think we should grab, YouTube, let somebody grab a camera, meet us out in the street, and let’s beat each other down and see who doesn’t get up afterwards. I mean, I don’t know. It has to be something else because if he wants to make it that way, then we gotta go and fight that way, and I’m okay with it. I’m okay with fighting any way.”
