During his appearance on Jim Ross’ “Ross Report” podcast this week, TNA Champion Bobby Lashley spoke about the possibility of competing against Brock Lesnar in either an MMA fight or a pro wrestling match in WWE.
Lashley pointed out that the decision isn’t his to make because he is in TNA and Bellator MMA, while Lesnar is with WWE and fights for the UFC when he does compete in MMA matches, but made it clear that such a match would interest him.
“You know, I hear that all the time, and J.R., you know as well as I do, it’s not in my hands. If you ask me, I would say absolutely, but it’s the powers that be. I think that there’s enough fans who would love to see it. They’ve been saying it from day one. And you know what the funny thing about it is? I’ve never met Brock in person. Never crossed paths with Brock anywhere. So we don’t even know each other at all, whatsoever.”
Additionally, Lashley spoke about the potential raucous crowd reaction that the WWE Universe would have if they saw the two accomplished amateur wrestlers and MMA fighters / pro wrestlers finally standing face-to-face for the first time-ever. He also pointed out the “tremendous amount of money” that the two could generate if they were to do a big match at a future WrestleMania pay-per-view.
“I’ve always been compared to Brock, and they say ‘Are you and Brock gonna fight? Are you and Brock gonna wrestle? I don’t know if the fighting is still an opportunity with me being in Bellator and him kind of being with the UFC; or I don’t know what the situation is right now. So I don’t know if the fight thing is possible, but to see me as Brock’s destroying everyone and save the day, or vice versa, whatever the case is, have us stand face to face? I think the crowd would go insane. And there’s a tremendous amount of money in it. If it were to happen, then I’m open for it.”
