WWE United States Champion Bobby Lashley Talks About Working With MVP, Wrestlemania 37

Earlier today, Sports Illustrated posted an interview with current WWE United States Champion, as well as member of The Hurt Business Bobby Lashley. The Chief Hurt Officer of The Hurt Business spoke about working with fellow member MVP, and he had this to say:

“We’ve been friends for a long time. That extends beyond wrestling. We worked together outside of WWE, and he would come to some of my fights in Bellator. That’s the kind of friend he is. It was great that he came back to WWE, and he wanted to do a one-off at the Rumble so his son could see him wrestle. After that, we started talking. I thought he had so much more left. I said to him, ‘Let’s do something together,’ and that’s how it all started.”

The former two-time ECW World Champion, two-time intercontinental Champion, and current reining two-time United States Champion also spoke on potentially winning the WWE Championship someday, stating:

“The world title, that’s been my priority since I came back. That hasn’t changed. When I returned to WWE, I came in and paid respect to the guys who were here. Ever since, I’ve been focused on I taking steps to show I am the guy.”

Lashley, who faces off against Keith Lee and Matt Riddle in a United States Championship triple threat match at Sunday’s Elimination Chamber event, also talked about wanting to have a match with Drew McIntyre, for the WWE Championship at Wrestlemania 37:

“I want that fight, I want that title. Drew is old-school. He fits into any era. He’s tough, he’s real. We have a lot of unfinished business. We have history. We’ve met in the ring before, we were tag partners, and we know each other real well. Drew is ‘The Chosen One.’ That’s not me, I’m someone that fought for it. There is so much potential for our fights.”

The Chief Hurt Officer also added fuel to the fire of a potential dream match, and spoke about a possible showdown between he and Brock Lesnar. Lashley and Lesnar have yet to faceoff in WWE, and when asked about the match, Bobby told SI:

“Adding Brock always adds a lot. He’s as real as it gets, and he’s someone I want in the ring. So I’m open to that, but me and Drew can do it on our own, too. There are a lot of options, which is great for everyone.”
