WWE Superstar Bobby Lashley has claimed that, while it’s a great time to be a fan, WWE doesn’t have any “serious competition”.
Bobby Lashley can look back on what has been possibly the biggest year of his career as 2021 draws to a close. The All-Mighty has won the WWE Championship, appeared at WrestleMania, and fought legends.
Lashley’s next challenge will be to lead Team Raw to victory as they take on Team SmackDown at Survivor Series on November 21st.
In an interview ahead of the event, Lashley was asked about the current state of professional wrestling. While WWE is the dominant force in sports entertainment, the steady rise of AEW has many wondering if the organisation will soon be able to compete with the Vince McMahon-led titans.
Speaking on DAZN, Lashley said that while it’s a great time for wrestling fans, WWE doesn’t face any serious competition.
“I think it’s great right now. I think there’s a lot of competition. I think we’re doing some big things, and we’re moving into a big season for us, with some big news coming around. I think that it’s a good time to be a wrestling fan, and it’s a good time for a wrestler with a good time to step up for everyone. Everybody always says competition is good. I don’t think really we have any serious competition. But the fans like it, the fans like the fact that there are other things going on that forces us to step up.”
After originally being left out of Team Raw for Survivor Series, Bobby Lashley won his way into the match by decimating Dominik Mysterio. While Mysterio was initially selected for the team, he was forced to defend his spot by order of WWE Official Adam Pearce.
