Bobby Lashley Discusses His Future With Lana, Speaks on Rusev & Having Undertaker Backstage


-- Bobby Lashley recently spoke to TalkSport about a number of topics. Some highlights below:

His storyline with MVP and Lana

“I really don’t know anything with Lana, I just know this: whatever anybody says, she is an extremely talented person. No matter where they put her, she’s going to blossom. If it’s staying with me or if it’s doing something else, she’s going to do awesome."

Thoughts on Rusev

“And with Rusev, you know how it is in this business, people come and people go. But with Rusev, I don’t think anyone is debating this: Rusev is an incredible talent. I loved working with him, [a] great guy across the board. I don’t know what transpired with that – with him leaving – don’t really know. But if it’s back with the WWE or wherever he goes, he’s going to be a superstar. The guy is a superstar.”

Having someone like Undertaker backstage

“Man, it was incredible. I was telling someone the other day, I think this is where social media maybe brings us down a little bit, because everybody wants to joke about something. It’s like, ‘oooooo he did this’, or, ‘he did that’ – no. When I wrestled before, when I came back through the curtain, I had somebody like ‘Taker, [Chris] Benoit, Booker T, Big Show – one of those guys that would pull me off to the side and say, ‘hey, good match. However, have you thought about this?’. They would give you some type of pointer because, at the end of the day, we wanted the whole show to be amazing. So that’s what we would always focus on. It was just a very fortunate time for me because I had ‘Taker there and I had JBL, Benoit and all these different people that were always there to say, ‘hey, here’s what you can do better.'”
